By TLex Here’s a pair of exciting new Special Edition Hydroscaph models from CLERC. The Hydroscaph H1 Chronometer Carbon Edition and the Hydroscaph C1 Chronometer Vancouver Bay Edition.
The H1 Chronometer Carbon Edition boasts a deep black ultra-light, carbon fiber case while the H1 Chronometer Vancouver Bay Edition, is made from high-density steel.
It celebrates the first underwater expedition marking the partnership between Clerc Genève and the manufacturer of private submersibles, Sub Aviator Systems.
Its 81-part case is one of the most complex on the market. Each of its components have been individually machined!
In terms of both development and testing, both watches have benefited from cutting-edge technologies and trials in extreme conditions, performed in the R&D lab of the world leader in marine technology.
Their 43.8 (or 48mm including case protectors) diameter cases are topped by CLERC’s signature octagonal rotational divers bezel with its exclusive locking device.
All Hydroscaph H1 Chronometer series are designed to meet all the demanding criteria of the ISO6425 norm governing the diver’s watch label.
They have successfully passed a series of strict tests relating to traction, shocks, visibility, magnetism, water-resistance in deep waters, as well as resistance to seawater and corrosion. They are water-resistant to 500 meters.
Their perfectly accurate cutting-edge movement is certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC).
