By TLex With each new model comes a different interpretation of what a rugged vintage military diver is – with each new model, whether it be one of their handcrafted bespoke beaters or one of their quirky vintage-mil.-styled serial models comes an unmistakable character and charm.
And while the typical VDB mightn't be designed for the consummate scuba-diver, it does evoke a diving spirit – so in many respects this latest serial model from the Erfurt based, watchmaker is something quite new as it is their first model to sport a true dive-time scale and with actual graduations, too!
Not only this, as if to reaffirm its diving character, the dial of the new No Limit is if fitted with a classic set of plongeur hands with a dwarf hour hand. Dials can be had in black, orange or green – model depending.
The No Limit will come in four iterations: a bead-blasted version of which there will be 40 pieces available, 80 pieces with a polished finish, a further 40 pieces in black PVD and 60 pieces in bronze. Dimensions include: 47mm in diameter x 17mm thick x 56mm lug-to-lug
The No Limit collection will be powered by a reliable Swiss made workhorse, the ETA 2824-2 automatic mechanical movement. The watches will be delivered with: 1x new ultimate rubber strap, 1x leather strap with a screw-in buckle and box. The bronze VDB No Limit will be delivered with extra handmade shark strap.
