You can tell that the Robusto Buceador has an internal rotating bezel that is operated via one of the two crowns. This system usually works nicely enough, and is attractively integrated into the dial design. The dial itself has very broad SuperLumiNova rich hands, as well as a very interesting design for the hour markers (more luminant there). I think the watch is a good combo of simple classic design, and modern appeal in the dial.

Inside the Cruise Sport watches are Japanese Miyota quartz movements. Cheaper than Swiss movements, and arguably as reliable. The movements help the watches remain at prices that are highly competitive with the competition. Using Swiss movements would have made the collection less attractive in terms of price. The Cruise Sport Chrono movement (Miyota FS20) has the time (without seconds indicator), a 60 minute chronograph, the date, and a synchronized 24 hour scale (useful for AM/PM indication, as well as reading military time). Not having a ticking seconds hands sort of allows you to forget that it is a quartz based watch. The piece features large chronograph pushers that are curved, and relatively easy to operate. My unit has hands that align nicely with the indicators - so I appreciate that a lot.
Is the Royal Oak Offshore the official watch for the l'Hydroptere relationship? Hardly, it is just their latest marine themed watch. I have confirmation that Audemars Piguet will not only release a l'Hydroptere limited edition watch, but it will be a very special one. As a bit of trivia aside, according to the team members who sail the ship, their dream features for a watch while sailing are that it should: be very light, have the time, a chronograph, a countdown timer, a tide chart, and a barometer with a history/log function. All easy to see at a glance. So someone get working on that. Maybe Audemars Piguet is as well!
Price for these watches is likely a couple thousand dollars. Not too much more than that I am sure. For that price they are indeed a splurge for most of the people in my mind that will like them here in the US, but not something that is so expensive you just scoff and shake your head. Any understanding of the Swiss watch market will rather easily justify these prices. While the RSW Outland 3H isn't a watch revolution, it is a fresh look, with a mind for a market that largely ignores watches but shouldn't. How to capture 'generation .com' isn't clear, but doing so with cheeky watches that look like what your uncle wore back in 1979 isn't necessarily the best way of going about it. At the same time, the Outland 3H is nifty watch novelty that should speak nicely to enough people. Look for it soon.
