    Helson Shark Diver 40 - With Frankenstein Bracelet Mod!

    I picked up this Helson 40mm Shark Diver during their Easter Sale + Clearance for a really killer price. Really great watch! For some reason I was having a hard time getting the bracelet comfort exactly right. So when I picked up a Helm Vanuatu last month, I also got one of their extra ratcheting clasps - for only $25 more, I figured it was worth a shot at modding it. After finding the right spring bars, there you have it! I really like the comfort of ratcheting clasps.

    A lot of people seem to think this ratcheting clasp on the Helm Komodo is too large, but I like it on the Helson.

    I am digging this ferocious little beast! What do you think?

    Helson Shark Diver Specs:

    Case: Brushed 316L surgical stainless steel -
    Diameter: 40 mm
    Height: 12 mm
    Lug width 20 mm
    Lug to lug length: 49 mm
    Total weight on the modded bracelet, sized to my 7 inch wrist: 184g
    Sapphire crystal: 3 mm thick - inside AR coated.
    Bezel: Lumed Sapphire inlay
    Water resistance: 500m/1640 ft
    Dial, hands and bezel coated with Swiss SuperLuminova

    Pictures!

    A remarkably beautiful watch, with that "pop" of color provided by the hour-markers in this beautimous shade 'o blue! This simple-but-amazingly effective use of color makes this watch exceptionally memorable, and one of the ones you're going to want to wear for two, three, four and more days-in-a-row! It has certainly caught -- and held!! - MY critical eye! Soooo, congratulations from a verrrry envious rodent on the acquisition and retention of this mahvelous and dead-sexy hunk of watch flesh! ​WOOF!
