Below is a review from A Time To Blog:
The Deep Ocean reference ANN0913 is the second timepiece I’ve reviewed from independent watch brand Andersmann. Once again, I find myself immediately charmed by what is a real tool watch and a pure expression of what many enthusiasts are looking for in a beefy yet simple daily dive-style watch. With that said, for a watch of its style, the Andersmann Deep Ocean 3000M is on the pricier side – so let’s see how appealing the features and overall wearing experience are.
The Andersmann Deep Ocean is a serious deep diver born of the design school of thought where simplicity and strength make for a good watch design. I applauded the “design restraint” of Andersmann’s original watches and likewise appreciate the Deep Ocean. In theory, all of the brand’s watches are essentially the same thing – a simple daily dive watch that is thematically inspired by the same appeal a Panerai has. This simple focus on utility, streamlined looks, and not too much fuss allows the watch to be fashionable and conservative, which allows it to work in a range of situations. Likewise, Andersmann includes both a rubber and a leather strap which you can play with. The rubber strap feels like an upgrade in material from that used on the Oceanmaster, and while the style of the leather strap isn’t for my taste, if you can find 26mm wide straps, you can fit anything you like to the case.
What all Andersmann watches have in common thus far is the movement they use, which is a Swiss ETA 2892-2 automatic. This higher-grade three-hand automatic was visible through the sapphire crystal caseback window of the Oceanmaster, but the Deep Ocean has a solid caseback – for good reason. The movement is capable and reliable, with a 4Hz (28,800 bph) operating frequency and about 42 hours of power reserve. The dial of the Deep Ocean features just the time, and (as in the Oceanmaster II), there is no date window. The omission of this functionality (which the 2892 movement does have) is done in order to make the dial entirely symmetrical, as well as to satisfy the desires of many watch enthusiasts who feel that these days they don’t need a date window (they can learn that information elsewhere) and prefer a more purist look to the dial design.
Speaking of the dial, the Deep Ocean face and the Oceanmaster II face are cousins in that while they look different, they make use of the same “sandwich” dial technique where the hour markers are cut out to reveal a lower plane under the face which is entirely covered in luminant paint. Cleverly using just the seconds hand to add a dash of color (blue), the Deep Ocean is otherwise a very industrial looking design – albeit one put together by someone who clearly has a selection of colors, textures, and materials. It is in these areas of refinement that the Deep Ocean earns its ability to cost over $2,000. This includes the matte black DLC-coated case, cream-colored beige hour markers, and the overall detailing throughout the watch.
While the Oceanmaster II was a 1000m water resistant watch in a 47mm wide steel case, the Deep Ocean ups the ante by offering 3000m of water resistance in a 47mm wide titanium case. Once again, the rotating diver’s-style bezel insert (the rest of the bezel is titanium) is in matte black ceramic – being cut and shaped very precisely and offering the scratch-resistant properties of ceramic.
At 47mm wide (with a 56mm length), the Deep Ocean is also 20mm thick thanks to the dramatically curved “bubble-style” AR-coated sapphire crystal over the dial (which apparently is 4.5mm thick). I love dive watches with clean, domed crystals like this – and here the effect is so neat looking it appears like a bubble is trying to escape from the case. Some glare is an unavoidable issue with a crystal that has this shape, but it isn’t too bad and the overall ability to read the time on the dial of the Deep Ocean at a range of angles and in many lighting situations is very good.
The best way I can sum up the Andersmann Deep Ocean is a serious tool-style dive watch meant for snobby design lovers who seek out “cool shit” from “hidden brands,” and I mean all that with love. I am probably exactly the type of person who would be an ideal buyer given my tastes and affinity for newer independent watch brands. The watch does everything well, which further reinforces that it is conceived by people who like watches, in order to satisfy the tastes and expectations of other watch lovers. Consider that a design like the Deep Ocean could have gone in one of two directions. Either someone like a fashion house brand puts their name on it and makes it a fashion dive watch with more style than substance, or a smaller operation like Andersmann makes it more exclusive and underground, but while putting in as much attention to detail as they can for the price. I am sure most people reading this review prefer the latter.
What an incredible watch!
