Tsao Baltimore Torsk-Diver

Postby koimaster » February 4th 2019, 12:29pm

Tsao Baltimore is preparing their second model, the limited edition Torsk-Diver, a 300m diver that pays tribute to the brand’s hometown. Founder, Alan Tsao sent a blue and bronze prototype for review, and it is a mighty impressive piece.

Alan goes through great efforts to tie his watches to his home town. The Torsk will be instantly familiar to anyone who has visited Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, but for the rest of you, a little history lesson is in order. The Torsk is a Tench-class submarine launched in September 1944. It saw combat in the Pacific, torpedoed the last enemy warship sunk by the US Navy in World War Two, spent much of its service as a training vessel, and participated in both the Lebanon Crisis and Cuban Blockade before being decommissioned and preserved as a museum ship in 1972. Since then, it has become a National Historic Landmark and a must-see attraction for visitors to Baltimore. I had the privilege of spending the night aboard the Torsk with my son’s Scout troop and let me tell you, I have nothing but respect for those who served on her crew. It is a fascinating machine, but the Ritz-Carlton, it ain’t.

Not terrible looking for a watch the doesn't exist yet with a stupid backstory that seeems to have nothing to do with the design. I do like the addition of Charlie the Tuna on the rotor.

From the Bum:

Perhaps the most striking aspect of the case is the long guard that sweeps from the bottom right lug to the 2 o’clock crown. It creates a pleasantly asymmetrical shape that makes the Torsk-Diver immediately identifiable.

It's too bad that Bremont didn't think of that!!
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

If not for it not being Invicter-sized, it might be right up Bazinga!'s alley.

Too high end and foo-foo for ol’ Bazinga. That fucker is part of an affordables FB group I frequent. He is constantly posting his “reviews” there. Had to block him as they are just nauseating.
