As a supplement to the new for 2010 EasyDiver collection (that I wrote about here), Roger Dubuis Mens Replica has released a limited edition EasyDiver Black Swan replica watch you see before you. These are all revisions of years of EasyDiver replica watches and/or other sport models from Roger Dubuis – most have been good, all have been interesting.
The Black Swan, as it is called, is named as such for use of a black ceramic bezel. While ceramic bezels are no longer particularly uncommon, this one is interesting given how complex the shape is. It is still not nearly as easy to cut ceramic as it is metal. For instance, how many square ceramic cases have you seen? While I don’t know the particular ins and outs of how the bezel was made, I would guess it is significantly more complex than just a ring-shaped ceramic bezel. The complexity comes in with the notches and the numerals done in relief.
Compared to the luxury replica watches from 2010 the Black Swan certain has more of a night look. I would go so far as to say “black swan” look. Is that like black sheep? Black Swan makes me think of something dark and elegant – which I guess in a sense this replica watch is. Mostly I think back to other names that Roger Dubuis added to its dive replica watches that are equally silly such as “SAW” (sport activity replica watch), and Seamore.
Aside from the black ceramic bezel the case is in steel and 46mm wide. There are carbon fiber inserts on the sides of the case (which you can see if you like to the previous article above). Quality and comfort are high for this range. The Black Swan comes in three dial choices. All that changes on each are the hands and hour indicators. What do you prefer, black, white, or orange lume?
