The 316L stainless steel watch case is finished in a combination of brushed and bead-blasted finishes. The 120 click uni-directional bezel has a lumed matt ceramic inlay and a 4mm thick AR coated domed sapphire crystal protects the matte black sandwich dial. The caseback has a deep engraved brand logo and instead of the usual screw-back, it is secured to the case with six machine screws.

The Ningaloo Reef Diver watch is powered by a Japanese Miyota 9015 movement, well-loved by microbrands for its accuracy and reliability. The leather straps are finished with white stitching and a brushed stainless steel buckle – with the usual spring bars replaced with stainless steel screw bars, another engineering feature that sets this watch apart form the crowd and gives it the feel of a tough, functional and dependable tool.
