A Deal (And Donation) on the Prometheus Manta Ray


It’s the end of the year, and there are definitely bargains and discounts to be found.  Some of these you have to do quite a bit of searching; this one, however, we’re serving up on a silver platter for you.

For the month of December, Prometheus will be selling their Manta Ray at the following discounts:

  • ~$700 inside the EU / ~$580 outside of the EU (down from $900/$740)
  • With each purchase, a ~$26 donation will be made to the NGO Refúgio Aboim Ascensão

So, you’re getting a deal, and a warm feeling from being able to help out a charity.  Both good things, in and of themselves, but what of the watch that’s involved? (For reference, John liked it in this post when it was at $900…)

The watch itself is a classically-chunky diver – in some part aesthetically, I’m sure, but also for a practical reason as well – the watch is rated to 1001 meters of water resistance.  Along with that crazy number, you get the following:

  • ETA 2824-2 movement with hacking seconds
  • Case:  stainless steel; 44.5mm
  • Bracelet:  22mm stainless steel; adjusted with hex-head fasteners; diver’s extension
  • Screw down crown
  • Interchangeable, 120-click unidirectional bezels
  • Sapphire crystal with AR coating on both sides
  • C3 SuperLuminova on the numbers and hands

All in all, this is a serious, Swiss-made watch ready to take on some crazy depths.  For those of us not likely to see anything deeper than the local pool, it still provides an attractive dive-watch option that will stand up to the “rigors” of daily life.
