For WatchGecko’s second collaboration with NTH, they wanted to imagine what the DevilRay would have looked like if it was made back in the 1970s. Just like their first collaboration, they’ve made just 25 units of each colour in this initial batch.
To give these DevilRays a vintage look, we first flattened the dial, removing the raised minute track. The markers are chunky and have raised polished sides to add some height back into the dial whilst keeping a classic aesthetic.
To help make the watch look even more retro, we went with a classic sword handset that was a firm favourite of vintage dive watches. The bold orange minute hand pops out against the grey dial, so it’s easy to read at a glance.
The dial print is another big departure from the standard DevilRay, with a partial crosshair and offset text designed to evoke the look of classic cushion-cased divers of the era. For the first time, the iconic DevilRay graphic is present on both the dial and caseback, and it adds a playful element to an otherwise very practical dive watch dial.
The DevilRay’s steel cushion case shrouds a 120-click, unidirectional bezel. This bezel features a saw-tooth edge for easy manipulation, as well as a durable steel insert. To make it easy to distinguish between the outer and inner scales on the bezel, we opted for a gunmetal grey coloured DLC coating on the insert.
Alongside these changes, this WatchGecko exclusive DevilRay is as tough a tool watch as you’d expect to see from NTH. The hands, markers, bezel, and even the crown are filled with X1 Super-LumiNova, for supreme legibility in low light conditions.
What’s more, each DevilRay is individually tested to a water resistance rating of an impressive 500m, and features a double-domed, anti-reflective sapphire crystal for superb scratch-resistance.
To power the DevilRay, NTH chose to use the reliable Seiko NH35 automatic movement. The tried and tested calibre beats at a rate of 21,600 BPH with a 41-hour power reserve. On top of this NTH have taken the time to regulate the movement, and it will be accurate to -10/+20 seconds a day.
Why This Watch?
