CREPAS Watches PLONGEUR

This is the CREPAS that brought us watches like; the Le Grand, the CAYMAN and L’ocean among others.



The CREPAS who are revered for their modern-vintage models with their designs respectfully borrowed from the pages of history, tweaked and technologically updated for the modern day.



This is the CREPAS we know and love and who have just pulled another rabbit out of the hat with their latest release which promises to bring just as much joy to their faithful followers as any of their previous hits.



Meet the CREPAS Plongeur 1000M, an almost faithful recreation of ZENITH’s S.58 from 1958, a time in history when the humble dive watch had just started coming into its own.



The S.58 had to go up against far better-known divers like Blancpain’s Fifty Fathoms, the Omega Seamaster and Rolex Submariner models.



Being an extremely rare and expensive watch, a good example S.58 is unlikely to grace any of our wrists anytime soon.



Even if you were lucky enough to own one, you’d have to treat it with kid gloves. In steps the CREPAS Plongeur 1000M!
