Just like the diverse colours and contrasts of life in the ocean, these timepieces are presented with sleek dials and bezels in polished white, chocolate or black ceramic. This silky effect is adorned by Liquidmetal™ or Ceragold™ numbers and scaling.
On the ceramic dials, subtle design changes include the new Arabic numerals and the new transferred minutes track. Several models also include diamond-paved bezels for added elegance.
Along with the dot on the diving bezel, the applied indexes on the dials are coated with white Super-LumiNova that emits green or blue light. This helps divers easily keep track of their time underwater.
The breathing gas used in diving bells can contain helium, which can easily penetrate a divers' watch and cause damage when resurfacing. The helium escape valve prevents this from happening.
“The metal bracelet has now been integrated differently to the case so that it sits better on the wrist.”
The watches are presented on quilted rubber straps, water-resistant leather straps with an anti-bacterial rubber underside, or metal bracelets that have been integrated to the case so that they sit and look better on the wrist.
Master Chronometer calibres are at the pinnacle of watchmaking precision and performance. To reach the standard, each watch has passed the 8 rigorous tests set by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS).
