CLERC Hydroscaph LE Central Chrono STEEL

By TLex CLERC unveil a sublime new version of the Hydroscaph LE Central Chrono in STEEL at the JCK show in Vegas. The Hydroscaph has one of the if not the most complex luxury dive watch cases on the market with a total of 103 parts. Complexities aside it still remains a tough and highly efficient design that thanks to lateral reinforcement guarantees its water resistance to 500 meters.


CLERC's signature octagonal-shaped rotating bezel takes care of dive time. It is operable via a retractable flap on a dedicated crown integrated into the case. Returning the flap to its initial position securely locks the bezel, thus avoiding any risk of accidental deregulation while diving. The mobile lugs ensure a perfect fit on all wrist sizes and shapes, including over a diving suit.

The watch is available in three finishes: high-density steel, black DLC and 18K Rose Gold / black DLC Steel. Each of the three versions is fitted with a rubber or rubber-treated hornback crocodile strap with a folding clasps. The watch is issued in limited series of 500 pieces.


From CLERC Two central hands providing an original short-time display mode: such is the exclusive solution showcased by Clerc Genève. The first central sweep-seconds hand indicates the chronograph seconds, while its twin shows the minutes. This innovative display ensures exceptional readability for an instrument that tolerates no aesthetic or technical compromises.

In line with the landmark technical timers representing successive breakthroughs in the history of timekeeping, the new Hydroscaph Limited Edition Central Chronograph brings to the wrist the precise handling and perfect readability of competition instruments.
