We have reinterpreted one of the most appreciated bracelets in the world of watchmaking, perfectly adapting shapes and finishes to the Nereide case. We made several tests to obtain a high quality and ergonomic product with a double brushed and polished finish. A perfect fit on the wrist is guaranteed. In fact, this bracelet is equipped with a butterfly clasp which offers an extremely comfortable fit.
The Nereide’s unidirectional rotatable bezel is key to the functionality of the watch. Its engraved 60-minute graduation allows a diver to monitor diving time and decompression stops accurately and therefore safely. Manufactured by Meccaniche Veneziane from a hard, corrosion-resistant ceramic, the Ceramic bezel insert is virtually scratchproof and its colour is unaffected by ultraviolet rays, seawater or water that is chlorinated.
For this Limited Edition of Nereide, we designed and engineered a new caseback equipped with sapphire crystal to show the Swiss Made MV285 automatic movement. In particular, extremely fine sandblasting was used on the movement bridges to provide the watch with a more modern look. The golden rotor with Côtes de Genève finish, on the contrary, is the classic element, present in each of our creations.
Swiss Super-LumiNova® BGW9 is a phosphorescent pigment, otherwise known as Lume, emits a Blue-Green glow in the dark (as the name suggest) when properly charged by either sunlight or artificial light. In a daylight condition, BGW9 is white in colour. Compared to the pigment C1, the BGW9 has a relative brightness more than triple, making it the most widespread solution in the haute horlogerie
This careful stylistic choice provides a more modern look to a design that aims to convey tradition and innovation at the same time. The deep satin finish is obtained through the use of special brushes by skilled craftsmen who finish each individual surface through a completely manual process. Several handmade steps are required to achieve a homogeneous result that passes the internal quality control process.
