Today I’d like to share my thoughts on a relatively new watch model offered from Detomaso Watches. The German based company has really produced some bang for your buck watches, continuing with their goal of 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 San Marino Multifunction Dive Watch, the subject of this review, may be the one of the most intriguing value dive watches around with a price under $360USD packing a ton of great specifications and a look that many watch enthusiasts will be more than familiar with at this point. Some of the basic specifications of the San Marino Multifunction are as follows:
Water resistant depth: 20 atm
Case material: Stainless steel
Case diameter: 45 mm
Case thickness: 16 mm
Crystal material: Sapphire glass
Band material: Stainless steel
Clasp type: Safety clasp
Model number: DT1065-A
Manufacturers suggested full retail price: 525,00 EUR Amazon price – $355USD
I’m not going to go over the packaging offered by Detomaso again in any great detail. The packaging is identical to what comes with any other watch models offered by the company. If interested, check out the other Detomaso reviews here on WatchReport.com to see what it looks like. In short, I will just mention it is very simplistic and will supply adequate protection during shipping which is ultimately the most important aspect of any packaging. I’m still hoping to see functional packaging such as zipper travel cases or canvas travel rolls from the company.
First, I want to discuss the features, measurements and components of the all brushed 316L stainless steel case. The case measures 45mm and a substantial 49mm including the crown. The lug-to-lug measurement is approximately 54mm, combined with a weight of 230 grams, 16mm case thickness and the other case specifications, provide quite a substantial appearance on the wrist. The 230 grams advertised weight includes the full bracelet so keep in mind once a few links are removed the watch will be quite a bit lighter for those that may be worried about a heavy wrist. I will go ahead and mention my least favorite aspect of this very nice watch and get it out of the way. Detomaso is engraved across the non crown side of the case rather than the model having a simple logo or Helium Release Valve. I am not a huge fan of case branding as I feel it cheapens the overall look of the watch at times.
