The style: dive watch
The GFNY Passista Professional 300 is a dive watch for two reasons: sturdiness and looks.
Obviously a bike racing watch is exposed to all kinds of weather so water resistance is important. We didn’t stop at 100m water resistance which allows you to swim with the watch. At 200m water resistance a watch is considered safe for diving because it equals resistance to a pressure of 20bar which can happen in much shallower waters than 200m below if you move your arm.
To double down on resistance, we increase the water resistance to 300m. That way your GFNY Passista Professional 300 is definitely ready for a dive post race - or a dip in the hot tub which is a particular stress you shouldn’t expose a normal watch to.
But a dive watch also has a unidirectional bezel that allows you to quickly time something by rotating the bezel. We chose ceramic as the material for the bezel because it is light and scratch resistant.
