Underwater timepieces from IWC, Girard-Perregaux, Audemars Piguet and Jaeger-LeCoultre Featured

Strap on one of these deluxe timepieces, and keep track of time even in the deepest seas.
by 29 May 2009

In the infinite depths of the sea, when the thrill of exploration can make us lose track of both space and time, a precision watch can be a useful tool to bring us back to reality, with class. In the event of a power blackout while diving, the mechanical watch is also an indispensable backup system for deepwater divers.
And so the magnificent creations of four famous makers of haute horology, each of which has a strong history of excellence and is driven by passion for research, ideally project us from the infinite spaces of the ocean to the endless knowledge of man, who through humble experimentation and years of hard work touches perfection in absolute masterpieces of mechanics and design.

A true masterpiece of design, the impressive 43mm ceramic case of the WW.TC Shadow combines optimal hardness, high resistance to wear and special comfort.
