Bold and spunky, the Raider Sea Sky combines the functionality of a chronograph with the practical benefit of a rotating bezel, which allows the wearer to calculate speed and precise time. A pop of colour makes an impact in the water, on land or in the sky, complemented by luminous index marks on the dial. Since 2016, the brand has been testing the timepiece and its performance across a challenging environment as an instrument with genuine functionality beyond telling time. The watch has successfully managed to stand strong through various extreme weather conditions and environmental changes making it an ideal fit for a rugged environment as extreme as off-road racing.
CS Santosh, as an off-road bike racer needs a device which can not only be his time keeping companion but something that stays put on his wrist and functionality through a very rigid environment, thus making the Raider Sea Sky the most compatible time piece for him and all his racing expeditions where even a hundredth of a second can define results.
