HELBERG CH1 MOKUME GANE [a different kind of diver]

There are dive watches and there's the HELBERG CH1. When a team of Swiss watch engineers set about creating a WATCH that could showcase an unprecedented degree of impermeability. They could only imagine that seven decades on a spiritual successor of their revered creation previously only ever worn on the side of a deep sea submersible would continue to be admired, enjoyed and worn (perhaps as they had never intended) on a man’s wrist. They probably could not imagine that their depth-defying creation, an exotic design in itself, would be fused with even more exotic materials such as those whose origins hail from feudal Japan. The HELBERG CH1 is one of the coolest boutique diver's watches ever created. With a design borrowed from the storied pioneer of the deep. Boasting a case made from exotic Mokume Gane. And reengineered so that it can be worn and enjoyed where every wristwatch of its ilk’s rightful place should be, on the wrists of the faithful few. Special label of the well-known H2O Watch brand, HELBERG once again turned to its most iconic design this time adding a stunning historic Rolex dial design to compliment the enduring CH1. In addition to the classic dial that the CH1 has now worn for a decade or more, a new California style dial layout with bronze indexes and a train-track minutes running around its perimeter is also offered for this special Mokume Gane edition. Otherwise it's business as usual for this unusual wristwatch with a case diameter of just 43mm, a lug to lug measurement of 57mm and a height of 25.25mm that takes into account the CH1’s breathtaking domed sapphire crystal. Whose highly convexed design casts a magical spell upon the dial causing the same kind of dramatic distortions that you get when viewing objects immersed in deep water. The 3000 meters water-resistant CH1 Mokume Gane house a Swiss ETA 2824-2, automatic movement with a beat-rate of 28.800 bph and a power-reserve of approximately 42 hours. The time on both dial variants read via a set golden hands illuminated as the dial markers are with Swiss BGW9 SuperLuminova.

The HELBERG CH1 MOKUME GANE is currently being offered for 1,390 euros as part of H2O Watch’ legendary BLACK FRIDAY SALE
