The Hydronaut Hydro 1200 is amazing. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up.
It has lume:
It will go deep! 3,930 ft to be exact. Why they didn't round up to 4k feet, like the number of licks to get to the center of a tootsie pop? The world will never know. I speculate it was a nod to the rare sea dwellers that had "to the foot"specific depth ratings.
I imagine that a certain actual diver guy around these parts will say it is not a real dive watch as it lacks some ISO bullshit. . . But that ain't my bag. With a 3mm thick crystal and a He escape valve, it will go in the hottub, swimming pool, or snorkeling next time I head to Hawaii.
The hands are skeleton ☠ which is pretty cool and the skeleton minute hand is red.
The box was a black piano finished and super quality compared to other Tudor boxes I've had. Watch came authenticated (whatever that means) by that huge online auction site and had all the booklets, warranty cards, extra link, and an extra silicon strap.
At 45mm it is a big watch, but I'm a big lumberjack pirate type.
In comparison to my Exploder Eye Eye, it is not that big:
I've wanted one for a decade. All I can say is I wish I picked one up earlier.
The only blemish on this hardly used watch is on the clasp.
I am super happy. It is a keeper. I love the white dial with huge lume plots.
