Quicksilver Depth Charge M002BR

Today I'm wearing a surf brand watch, but a different brand than I've used before.

This watch is the Depth Charge by Quicksilver. Quicksilver is a Australian company which was founded in 1969, but is now based in California. It is one of the world's largest surfwear and boardsport equipment manufacturers, which also produces accessories like watches. The Quicksilver logo is a large wave over a mountain and was reportedly inspired by the woodcut The Great Wave off Kanagawa by the Japanese painter Hokusai.

The Depth Charge is a 3 hand dial watch with a model number of M002BR. It has a simple and clean design with a rectangular silver case and black dial and pattern of the dial centre with the hour markers looking like a black shiny sun. The strap is specific for the watch and has a square dot texture with the Quicksilver logo on. On the inside of the strap are all manner of engraved signature/tagging style Quicksilver's. The back tells this has a Japanese movement and is 5atm / 50m water resistant, and also has a large version of the logo.

I found an article about this watch written in late 2006, which was suggesting that this watch was what you should buy for someone wanting to be at the forefront of fashion for 2007.
