During Virtual MicroLux, the new CEO of the brand Raphael teased they are offering a code for a free bracelet to the first 100 people who preorder the Reef automatic chronometer dive watch.
I joined their post presentation Q&A and they were kind enough to provide us with our ManOnTime code for the FREE stainless bracelet!

Preorder pricing on rubber strap is $1,670
Free $297 bracelet with code ifyouknowyouknow_MoT

Estimated delivery is December 2020

Here's how the discount will work:
1) Go to Formex's site to add the rubber strap version to the cart.
2) Customize the watch as you like with choice of bezel, dial, and your wrist size.

3) In the cart, click on “customize your watch” drop down.
4) Add the stainless steel bracelet to the cart

5) Go to checkout and apply the code ifyouknowyouknow_MoT
6) The $297 bracelet will go down to $0!

More about the Reef:

A true Divers’ watch by design, the 42mm stainless steel watch is powered by a self-winding COSC-certified SW300 that comes in Sellita’s highest quality grade, using top of the line components only found in Chronometer-grade movements. This thin high-precision caliber allowed to construct the REEF at just 11.4mm thickness and a perceived height of 9.4mm, making it a great fit for the elegant occasions alike. For any underwater activities, a double gasket construction is designed and tested for 300 m / 1000 ft of water resistance.

Being one of the most exposed parts, the unidirectional rotatable bezel is made of an extremely hard and scratch-resistant Zirconium oxide ceramic. The graduations and numbers are engraved by femto-laser pulsations. Each bezel takes 60 minutes of precision engraving to achieve its three-dimensional effect. Machined gear-like indentations on the bezel’s edge allow a diver the ideal grip to safely set and monitor diving time and decompression stops. The 60 click action is responsive and smooth, yet offers firm and precise function of the bezel.

The sunray finished dial is manufactured at Formex’s in-house dial manufacture in the Jura mountains. The gradient for the different colors is sprayed by hand. The REEF’s bold rehaut-style hour markers are also hand-applied and triangle shaped, pointing towards the broad hour and minute hands that share the same detailed beveled mirror polish and brushed top surface finishing. Hands and hour markers as well as a capsule on the bezel’s zero marker are deep-filled with Swiss Super-LumiNova® BGW9 that emits a long-lasting blue glow in dark conditions. Being able to read the time with absolute certainty is a matter of survival when diving.

Both the solid-link bracelet and the rubber strap feature a buckle with a patented fine-adjustment system as well as a completely re-engineered and patented quick release system that allows to swap straps without the use of any tools.

Don't spread this around, but they're working on a 39mm version of the Essence that they'll announce later this year!!

That sounds good and I won’t tell anyone- the case suspension is a great touch and a bit addictive!

Awesome deal for us. Pity I'm not in the market for a green diver as that green dial looks amazing!

I really like this one and the bracelet deal makes this really, really tempting. Well done for getting it.

Your top pic - blue on strap with steel bezel - would be my pick of the available combinations.

Argh, just don't know if I can justify another purchase....
