The case is about 14mm-thick and has a lug-to-lug distance of about 48mm. I would describe the Raider Sea King as a large-medium watch with a bold wrist presence. It has a dress-watch personality, but it is also a real diver with meters of water resistance. Over the dial is a flat, AR-coated sapphire crystal that has not given me any glare issues a very good thing.
As I mentioned above, the stainless steel case is a sort of wide tonneau-shape with an interesting line across each side, which helps reduce visual mass. You also get a combination of brushed and polished surfaces, which is particularly nice on the top of the case around the bezel assembly. This also happens to be my favorite part of the watch because, even though it is mostly cosmetic, it suggests the look and personality of a tool watch, not a merely decorative item.
The bezel is really two visual parts that work together nicely. First is the immediate bezel around the crystal, which looks notched ready for a wrench to twist it off. Both of these design elements are suggestive of components that can be screwed-down — a hallmark of most all water-resistant dive watches. In my opinion, this is a very clever and attractive design for an interesting-looking, as well as masculine, timepiece.
More Favre-Leuba brand personality is apparent on the dial, which is comparatively simple next to other Raider family timepieces. The hands and hour markers are given Super-LumiNova paint for viewing the time and date. Around the periphery of the dial is a raised and angled flange ring with a minute track. This is both an attractive element and helps add a welcome sense of depth to the dial.
It also helps the drop from the bezel to the dial feel a bit less dramatic or sudden. My only issue with the dial is that the majority of it looks a bit flat. The three colorways of the dial currently available black, blue, and gray are all nice and fashionable, but the texture is a bit basic, in my opinion, on this gray.
Nothing can be ideal, right? This is my only major complaint with the watch, which is otherwise excellent. Inside the case is a Swiss ETA automatic movement that operates at 4Hz 28, bph with 42 hours of power reserve. This is one of the most common movements in mechanical dive watches with Swiss movements , and I like that since they are easy to fix and not very expensive to maintain.
Just you, your car and the road. Imagine holding the ropes on a sailing boat and heading into the coolness of the sea breeze. Just you, your boat and the sea. Imagine rushing to the job interview of your life through the awakening city, welcomed by the warm embrace of the rising sun.
Just you, your watch on the wrist and the city. In every such moment you trust yourself. You trust your choice of a route, your choice of leading a different lifestyle, your next career step. Or your choice of a timekeeping companion. There is no moving forward without trust. Most importantly, the trust in your own self.
