BOREALIS Bull SHARK 1stLOOK

By TLex BOREALIS have a new model in the works! The Bull Shark unlike its namesake, which happens to one of if not the most aggressive of sharks,



AKA the Zambezi Shark in Africa or Nicaragua Shark in South America (as it is known to swim many miles up said rivers) - pays tribute to the 1953 Rolex Submariner Ref. 6204.



The Bull Shark has a 42mm by 14.05mm x 50mm 316L Stainless steel case.



Its dial comes in 4 colors (black, blue, red and green) boasts gilt hands with Swiss Made BGW9 SuperLuminova which has also been applied to the hour markers.



Divers features include: a 120 click-type unidirectional divers bezel with a glossy ceramic inlay with a BGW9 lumed dive-time scale,



a screwdown crown and caseback, a double domed Sapphire Crystal with AR-coating on its inside and a Helium Escape valve at 9 o'clock.



Viton gaskets have been used for the caseback while Tefzel gasket have been used to secure the glass. Water-resistance is a respectable 2000 meters.



The caseback has been engraved with Borealis’ signature mermaid motif. Protected behind the mermaid is Miyota 9015 automatic movement.



The Bull Shark will come on 22mm 316L Stainless steel bracelet with a precision adjustable divers safety clasp.



It is expected to be ready in November 2016. More details about pre-ordering the new BOREALIS Bull Shark can be found HERE.
