Spinnaker Piccard Dive Watch
Spinnaker produces great, sporty watches with a direct nautical influence. Through a stylish combination of materials, design and craftsmanship, the elegant timepieces pay tribute to the world and lifestyle of yachting, with a flair and style that makes each one wearable on land and in the sea. Their latest offering - the Piccard is a limited edition dive watch that draws inspiration from the 1960 voyage of the Bathyscaphe Trieste, a two-person submersible that reached the bottom of Challenger Deep (the deepest known point underwater). To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the record-setting event, Spinnaker has imagined a watch that draws inspiration from that period of exploration, but built to modern standards. It features a dramatically domed scratch resistant sapphire crystal, a a self regulating helium escape valve, an enormous knurled crown, SWISS C3 Superluminova for great low light visibility, and water resistance to 1000 meters. It is cased in titanium, and features a modern Sellita SW-200 movement. Limited to just 300 pieces, the Piccard comes with both a hand stitched Italian leather strap and a rubber strap, and is available in both a matte gray, natural titanium finish, and a gold-tone version.
