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.
