This mask has totally revolutionised the sector, thanks to the new and exclusive principles that it has introduced and which represent just as many milestones. For the first time in the world the lenses are not parallel to the face but are raked and have an "inverted drop" shape, with a very particular formation, the structure of which is covered by international patent. The anatomically shaped band is very narrow and is invisible when the mask is worn. The all round visibility, above all downwards, reaches unprecedented limits, exceeding those of a traditional mask by 30%, allowing dressing and equipment checks that were impossible before the arrival of Big Eyes. The raking of the lenses and the consequent shape of the skirt drastically reduce the internal volume of the mask which is similar to that of free diving models. The soft silicone skirt and the wide sealing ring against the face make the mask very comfortable to use. Two tilting buckles guarantee quick and accurate adjustment of the strap. An excellent mask for both snorkelling and scuba diving.
The Cressi Big Eyes introduced a number of new ideas to divers including inverted drop shape lenses and raked frame and skirt. These two design features help to massively improve the all round field of vision by up to 30%. The inverted drop shape improves lower visibility, allowing divers and snorkellers to look down to check kit or points of interest without the need to tilt the head. The improved is increased further by pretilting the mask so that it is anglesd inwards towards the bottom of the mask. The added benefit of this is that this design also helps to reduce the internal volume of the mask. The soft, full silicone skirt incorporates a second lip on the inside of the skirt which increases the sealing surface that makes contact with the skin, helping to prevent water from entering the mask. A tiliting quick adjustment strap buckle is fitted either side of the mask to aid strap adjustment and fitting position to suit the user.
