Let’s not forget that the Pradata has an AR coated sapphire crystal, and the Miyota 9015 movement. There is no need to go into the movement and its accuracy, etc., as the 9015 has become pretty standard in many micro brands these days, and I have reviewed many watches using it. With good reason, the 9015 proved itself to be smooth and durable.

I know this review has come across as I am singing the praises of Obris Morgan, and there is a good reason. I am. I am always astounded as to how they can build a watch of this quality for the price. There are a lot of nice watches out there under $300, however, many do not come with sapphire crystal, an auto movement, great lume, and a case that was designed in house. The Pradata also comes shipped in a pelican style dive case, with polishing cloth and a zulu strap. If you are looking for that rugged and well built dive watch, and are on a budget, or even if not on a budget, and just love the look and design, I highly recommend the Obris Morgan Pradata.

The Pradata comes in black and blue dials, with a choice of PVD, Blasted and Brushe finishes. As of this writing, some variations might be sold out, though the version reviewed here is still in stock.

Thank you to Obris Morgan for providing the Pradata for review. I honestly can not wait to see what their next release will be, as I have no doubt it will be another quality, affordable timepiece. (Well, I hope it will be anyways).

Thank you for reading. I look forward to your comments below.

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

  1. I have the Pradata in a brushed finish and I have to say that for the money, this is an amazing watch! The bezel took some getting used to due to how wide the surface is, but when paired with the faceted case, the combo is terrific. I ordered a blue nato strap and brown leather strap from them directly when I ordered my Pradata, and I have to say that the watch looks better on the leather strap first, the nato second, and the bracelet third. The case and bezel have so much metal that a non-metal strap seems to showcase the watch in an even better light.

    Great review, I look forward to reading more!

  2. Thank you Paul L. I did not get a chance to put it on a leather strap, but I am sure it looks great.

  3. I may be totally wrong on this, but doesn’t “Pradata” mean “Sold” (as in, ‘the cookies have been sold to the customer’) in some of the slavic languages?

  4. I have a collection of around forty dive watches, as well as a couple, an old Navitimer, a flightmaster and a Ferrari, that don’t see water. This was a bit of an adventure for me, since my blasted and blue dial Pradator cost substantially less than any kind of a service on any of my other watches. It turned up here in UK in six days, and although I got hit with almost $50 UK taxes [grrrr], the watch is a colossal bargain by any standards. It is also numbingly beautiful to look at – IMO – and is a joy to wear and to show off, when necessary. My usual daily wear comes from Breitling, Rolex, IWC, Ebel, Omega and so on. This beautiful creation costs half the price of a Breitling leather strap…and a third of a service.

    Thanks, Obris-Morgan.

    • Tac,

      Thanks for your feedback. With Don Evans review, I had to experience the Pradata for myself. 5 days later, this watch quickly became one of my top favorites in the collection. I’m glad you like the Pradata!!

  6. I have to say given the titanium case and Sapphire crystal combined with the price this is like buying a Rolex in the 1950’s. I have had it for 2 years now and its still amazing. Near perfect. Cheers charles.

  7. Don,
    I really like my Pradata and considering they do not make them any longer, it seemed like a great buy and a keeper, at least for a while. I don’t get to wear it that much but it is still a great model to own. To me as nice as most of the divers that even cost a bit more. Good review..I’m going to keep it unless I absolutely have to thin the herd of 35….I like watches that you don’t see everyone wearing.
