It is a relief to witness genuine humility creeping into Evant’s language about their watches. With the release of their first watch, the Tropic Diver, Evant boasted about “their” design without mentioning that the Tropic was entirely derived from a rare Breguet diver. Further, it didn’t help things that the Tropic wore like a cat food can on my wrist (yes, I was a customer). But I’ll forgive these early missteps, especially when they’re used as humbling lessons that help the brand make better watches, which appears to be abundantly true with the newly released Evant Decodiver.
Evant is careful to point out that the Decodiver sports a 41-millimeter case that’s just 12 millimeters thick, and it has a lug-span of only 49 millimeters. I haven’t worn the watch, but the profile photos show lugs that reach downward at a modest angle, suggesting a far better fit for a wide range of wrists. Simply put, these are normal dimensions and shouldn’t surprise or disappoint.
