Gruppo Ardito has released a Limited Edition of their LINCE model with a unique case-side feature that will surely brighten your day! 

In addition to the striking case-side engraving, this Limited Edition known as the Lince Turquoise has twice the water-resistance of other models bearing the same name.

Gruppo Ardito watches btw are totally handmade in Italy using artisanal methods. The special “Turquoise” engraving has been hand etched, painted with enamel and then glazed. So to the watch’s Degradé petronas dial and of course the watch’s robust case – painstakingly machined from tough Grade 5 Titanium. The case which measure 42mm in diameter has been fitted with a 4mm-thick domed Sapphire crystal as well as a Titanium screw-down crown and solid G5 Ti case-back attached via 5x bolts. The case-back as an engraving of an Italian naval submarine; sadly I couldn’t find anything on it but there was an Spica-class, Italian torpedo boat named Lince that was built for the Regia Marina in the late 1930s. During the Second World War, Lince was involved in several naval actions before she was sunk in August 1943 by a British submarine. 
I’m not if there’s a connection? I digress. Powering this turquoise emblazoned, Grade 5 Titanium constructed, 2’000 meter Italian diver is a reliable Swiss Sellita SW200 automatic movement. The Lince Turquoise is presented on a blue sharkskin strap with hand-stitched a Tricolor and a Titanium buckle. Lei è bellissima!
