The Boschett Harpoon comes in a standard Boschett travel case, but this travel case isn’t standard by any means, at least not what you usually expect when you get a watch. As a mater of fact, it’s more like a mini jewelry box than anything. The large leather box opens to reveal your Harpoon on one side. On the other side when you lift open the flap you have your Boschett watch tool for changing bracelets, removing links, pins, and much more. Also, there is a cutout for another watch. There is also another compartment that you will find your interchangeable bezels, and this compartment can be used to hold rings or other jewelry, etc.  These are great boxes that not only keep your watch safe in transit, but a great two watch travel case, or just a great box to house some of your watches, tools, straps or jewelry.

For those not familiar with the Boschett Harpoon, it is a large dive watch at 45mm and 15.5mm thick. But, because of the way the case is done, with the bezel and case not symmetrical with each other, it does not wear as chunky or thick as it sounds.

The entire case is all done in brushed 316L stainless steel, with a very pronounced and a somewhat aggressive style bezel. The 120 click unidirectional bezel is easy to grip, and a little tight to rotate, which I find to be a good thing, as when you set it in place, it stays there. The White dial Harpoon comes with 3 different bezels, (the review model came with two) a stainless bezel with black numbers, a stainless bezel with red and black numbers and a white ceramic insert bezel.

The large crown is nicely engraved with the Boschett “B” logo, is easy to manipulate and unscrew. There are no real crown guards present, but the crown screws down nicely into the cutout section of the case. On the opposite side of the case you have the same type of cutout and this is where the helium release valve is.

I've been an avid watch lover since the age of 7. Watches are not only my hobby but a passion. My favorite style used to be dive watches, but field or non bezel watches have been growing on me. When I'm not reviewing watches I am either cooking or with family and friends.
