Lately I have been reviewing a lot of boutique or micro brands. They are all great values for the most part, but today we get to talk about a more mainstream brand; one that is known for their deep divers such as the record-breaking 20,000ft diver.
Today, we take a look at the Charmex Swiss Military Conger Nero Auto, in DLC. The Conger Nero Auto is not their deepest dive watch, but still comes in at a respectable 2000 meters, which for many of us watch enthusiasts is overkill to say the least, but it is still nice to know a watch can be built to these standards.
The Conger Nero Auto is named after an eel-like predator of the Sea that measures up to 10 feet long and with razor sharp teeth. The Conger Nero Auto is limited to 100 pieces, per variation, which includes a black dial, yellow, white and a sunray blue.
Take a look at my first impressions and video presentation:
Charmex Swiss Military Conger Nero Auto Specifications:

58mm lug to lug

Titanium folding dive clasp
Helium Relief Valve
Water Resistant to 2000m or 6600 feet

The first thing you need to know about the Charmex Swiss Military Conger is that this is a massive watch. Seriously massive, and chunky. It is definitely not a watch for everyone, and does sit quite high off the wrist due to the bubble case back and the way the bracelet attaches to the case.
