42 mm in diameter by 49 mm lug to lug, by 12.96 mm thickness an overall a perfect sized dive watch.
A nice sized screwed down 8 mm diameter crown. Two types of newer synthetic gaskets are used; Viton on case back and tefzel for the sapphire crystal both greatly improved over the traditional rubber gaskets.
Drilled lugs are a welcomed design for ease of changing straps/ bracelets.
Dial/Hands: 33 mm in diameter a very visible dial with well sized indices and traditional diver larger indices at 12, 3, 6 and 9.
The Cascais and 30 ATM in red right above the date at 6. The Borealis branding in white being a bit larger under the 12 indice, no other needless dial cluttering lettering or information is needed. A nice touch with the second hand being red tipped.
The cathedral styled hands and the indices use the the Swiss manufacturer; RC Tritec C3-X1 luminescent material, so far the brightest available on the watch market.
A small width diameter 120 click ceramic lumed bezel is just a perfect size for this watch.
Sapphire Crystal with A/R coating inside is standard.
Bracelet a 22 mm ratchet clasp, with single headed screws for link adjustments.
Movement: The Swiss movement company; Swiss Technology Production uses the STP1-11 26 jewels, 28'800 vibrations per hour, 4 Hz, hacking seconds and a power reserve of 44 hours.
A very well designed dive watch. 300 meter depth rating maybe an overkill over the traditional 200 meter. The Asian Watch industry has come light years in its quality and overall build workmanship vs the traditional Swiss watch industry that ruled for several decades and of course still produce wonderfully/quality built watches by highly skilled technicians. The Borealis brand is well designed and worth considering.
