Prometheus Sailfish 300m Automatic Diver

In for review is this week is the Prometheus Sailfish 300m Automatic Diver. With a focus on automatic divers produced in the 1950’s, the Prometheus Watch Company set out to create a modern day diver with an old school flavor. Inspired primarily by the first Blancpain Fifty Fathons, Prometheus set out and created their Sailfish collection. Lets begin with some specifications on the watch:

  • 316L Stainless Steel Case with Brushed finish
  • Matte Dial
  • SII Time Module NH36 Automatic Movement
  • Domed Sapphire Bezel with 120 clicks and applied luminous C3 Superluminova in numbers and markers
  • 316L stainless steel bracelet with 22mm width including high quality ratcheting buckle suitable for precise and easy adjustments
  • Case diameter: 42.00 mm without bezel, 43mm with bezel
  • Lug width: 22 mm signed screw down crown with Prometheus logo water resistance: 300 meters or 30 ATM sapphire glass with anti-reflective coating inside watch hands with C3 Superluminova application (hours, minutes, seconds)
  • Two Years Warranty
  • Price: €339.00. $465 USD

 

The Prometheus Sailfish arrives in a rectangular, low profile case. The case is constructed from genuine leather with a secondary compartment inside where another watch, bracelet, or extra straps can be stored. Unlike most watch boxes that are big and bulky, the slim profile of this case makes it great for travel purposes, giving it more of a purpose than another dust collector.

 

 

Once out of the box, the first thing you’ll notice is the Sailfish has some weight to it. Un-sized, the Sailfish weighs in at a total of 240 grams. Sized to my 7” wrist, the Sailfish brings a total weight of 200 grams, making this watch a bit on the heavy side.  If you’re into the heavier dive watches, the Sailfish may be a good fit for you.

The case is constructed of brushed 316L Stainless Steel, and measures in at a total of 43mm in width (including the bezel). The LTL measures a total of 52mm and the case has an overall height of 14.5mm. The case back is solid stainless steel, which cleanly displays the etched logo of the Sailfish. You also have a nice coined edge crown that is easy to grip, and displays the Prometheus logo.

The bezel of the Sailfish is a domed sapphire crystal with a thick coined edge. You’ll notice that the 120 click, unidirectional bezel, has a tight rotation with very minimal play, making this a very good bezel in my opinion.
