The 43mm case is robust yet wearable, helping to deliver an impressive 300m of water resistance. A dual time bezel again adds a different dimension of utility and its clean finish and scale make the Cahill a worthy and handsome nautically robust sports watch for all seasons.

Cleanly and unabashedly classic, the dial is that of a traditional dive watch with slightly more adventurous proportions. The dial is layered and subtly segmented to add extra depth, balance and clarity. Generously lumed, the dial aims to perform adeptly in lower light visibility.
