Founded in 1993, Detomaso, a German based company, began establishing watch collections that would highlight the owner’s persona to be captured in various venues such as; a sporting environment, normal every day life, or in the executive board room. The model lines created by Destomaso include the Trend, the Classic and the Ladies collections. According to Destomaso, the company places great importance on utilizing the “best materials, high quality, precise movements and a meticulous manufacturing process.” This review will highlight the San Marino Dive Watch from Destomaso’s Classic Collection.

The packaging is fairly simplistic in design with an outer cardboard box and an inner metal tin. The tin contains a cut foam insert that conforms to the watch for ultimate protection during shipping. Warranty card and instruction books are also provided. The packaging is nice, but I would much prefer a watch roll or travel zipper case, both of which provide more functionality overall than a standard watch box.

Most of us following dive watch styles over the last few years are quite familiar with the San Marino watch case. I’m fairly certain the case is produced and sold by Fullswing, a Hong Kong based company, to various watch companies. Because I have owned various watches with this case design, and know many others who have also owned watches with this design, I know that this particular case design was one of the more popular styles in the past few years. The case is not often available, so it was nice to find a company still using it with an overall cost under $550 USD.
