By TLex Introducing the new Limited Edition Shell Star from Delma, a divers model based on the Swiss brand’s first professional divers watch from 1975 of the same name –
celebrating a new partnership with the IMOCA Ocean Masters World Championship to become the Official Timekeeper of the Transat New York - Vendée Race.
The original Shell Star had a water-resistance of 200 meters; a major milestone for Delma as it defined their divers collection over the next few decades.

Further divers features include: a Sapphire crystal, a Stainless steel screwdown crown and caseback with mineral crystal and a unidirectional turning with black, blue or orange anodized aluminum ring.
Powering the Sea Shell is an ETA 2824-2 with: 25 jewels, a beat-rate of 28'800 alt/h, a power reserve of 42h and a custom gold plated, Delma engraved rotor.
The Shell Star comes on a Stainless steel bracelet with solid links and end-pieces and a Stainless steel folding divers clasp with security system. Its list price is: 1295CHF.
