DELMA BLUE SHARK IV [venture into the abyss]

Venture into the abyssal zone with DELMA's new deep diver, the 5000m water- resistant BLUE SHARK IV. A high degree of water-resistance is something that you should except from any tool diver worth its salt. However when that watch's depth rating exceeds industry norms required for a typical diver's watch by a factor of ten or more.

It might raise a contentious eyebrow or two but it always raises the same question, what's the point? 

And I would say, ask not why but why not. Because few features so perfectly exemplify the engineering required of a diver's watch than does its water-resistance.

Only a handful of a Swiss watchmakers have the manufacturing capabilities to engineer these types of depth defying wristwatches that we have seen fall in and out of favor. And then right back in again over the past two decades. And only one of them (that I know of) is a family run business such as DELMA is (since 1924) whose latest version of its flagship diver's model, the Blue Shark IV boasts a water-resistance that is up to 25 times higher than your typical diver's watch. The Blue Shark IV supersedes its superb predecessors with an unfathomable water-resistance of 5000 meters inviting adventure and exploration in both thought and deed. As the fourth iteration of DELMA’s acclaimed deep-sea diver, it embraces the inimitable Blue Shark design while integrating upgraded durability along with some subtle aesthetic enhancements. Between 3000 and 6000 meters beneath the ocean's surface lies the abyssal zone, a cold lightless region of immense pressure and chilling temperatures. The unique creatures that dwell at these depths have evolved to survive in this harsh environment. Unusual characteristics such as transparency and bioluminescence enable them to thrive.

Likewise, DELMA’s Blue Sharks have become increasingly resilient and distinctive through years of refinement and advancement, evolving to become trusted timing instruments of the deep. 

DELMA’s first Blue Shark was launched in 2011 with a clear mission: to be prepared for deep sea exploration, capable of performing at practically inaccessible depths.

With water resistance to 3000 meters, it was to serve as the foundation for a family of Blue Sharks each with their own distinctive characteristics. 

The future generations would not only dive deeper, limited-editions also introduced a philanthropic component.

The Blue Shark II introduced subtle refinements with a focus on strength while the Blue Shark III Azores directly supports research initiatives in its namesake archipelago which contribute to conservation of endangered sharks.

The Blue Shark IV has the power to go places where most humans would dare not even dream to venture to. 

Delma’s most powerful Blue Shark distinguishes itself as an exceptional divers’ instrument while possessing the collection's distinctive style.

The solid 47mm in diameter stainless steel case is appointed with superlative features for strength and security. The helium escape valve at 9 o’ clock and screw down crown ensure unparalleled levels of impermeability. The unidirectional, easy to grip bezel is refined to complement the new 20mm case height. Bold numerals, indexes and hands are accentuated with Super-LumiNova for clear legibility in the depths of the sea. With a sporty and robust personality, the Blue Shark IV’s quality craftsmanship is to be admired down to the finest detail and relied upon in all conditions. Offered in the collection’s signature blue, black and orange dials, the Blue Shark IV is equipped for extreme diving as well as an alluring accessory for sports and recreational pursuits above the surface.

Custom security screws and bespoke tools enable easy and reliable adjustment of the interchangeable solid stainless-steel bracelet and genuine rubber strap. 

Set in a customized wooden box, the Blue Shark IV celebrates the mystery of the sea and is prepared for what lies ahead.

The Blue Shark IV will be released this September in all stainless-steel and black DLC coated bezel with each variation limited to 999 pieces.

  1. Que aburridos resultan muchos de los modelos diver. Son variaciones anodinas de un mismo patrón.
