GRUPPO ARDITO Kraken 5000M Special Edition for OCEANICTIME

For your delectation, some new detailed shots plus a 2nd look at the new OceanicTime Special Edition which comes in the form of an incredible custom deep divers watch, hand-crafted in Grade 5 Titanium by Gruppo Ardito of Italy.

Gruppo Ardito is young artisan dive watch brand from Italy; a kind of Germano & Walter meets Ennebi if you will; they would happily sit alongside any Ennebi, G&W, Kaventsmann or VDB in your collection.

The Kraken 5000M OceanicTime SE is based on GA’s flagship diver, the KRAKEN – which has been given some special upgrades taking the watch to the next level in terms of looks and performance.

Initially only 10 – 15 pieces are planned as we want to keep the watch super exclusive. Its special features include:

* OceanicTime logo in white between 10 and 11 o’clock on the dial
* increased water-resistance from 4000m to 5000m
* black DLC-coated fixed bezel with contrasting silver hex-screws
* black DLC-coated crown
* 6x black DLC-coated case-back screws
* caseback sporting OceanicTime diver icon in black enamel
* simplified sandwich-dial layout minus the minute track
* articulated rubber divers strap
* black DLC-coated multi-piece roller buckle

The GRUPPO ARDITO Kraken 5000M OceanicTime SE is priced 1880€ + VAT + shipping

Optional extras include:

* a handmade Italian sharkskin strap supplied with a standard 24mm buckle + tubes to turn the roller buckle from 20mm to 24mm. 145€
* a solid CuSn12 Bronze alloy, fixed bezel. 170€

Please CONTACT Fabio of Gruppo Ardito to reserve yours now – and as always; first come first served.

Thanks for looking!
