By TLex Here’s another look at the Challenger DEEP from Emile Chouriet, which will be officially unveiled at Baselworld next month. The watch takes its name from the deepest known point in the ocean, the 10916 meter-deep trench, known as the Challenger Deep.
The Challenger Deep was first explored on January 23rd 1960 by the deep sea submersible, Trieste Bathyscaphe with Swiss explorer Jacques Piccard and US Navy Lieutenant Don Walsh on board.
In tribute to this legendary feat, Emile Chouriet has named its first divers model, the Challenger Deep; a watch that effortlessly combines functionality and aesthetic and is capable of plunging to a depth of 300 meters.
Its SuperLuminova applied hands and hour markers emit a green light in a
dark environment, while its rotating bezel comes in steel or black or
blue ceramic. In keeping with the Emile Chouriet design codes, the Challenger Deep watch features double wing-shaped hands.
