CX SWISS MILITARY WATCH™ Argonaut 1000 TQ

The CX Swiss Military Watch™ brand, which won a Guinness record in 2006 for its 12,000 FEET, now offers its new generation of ARGONAUT diver’s watches: the titanium 1000 TQ, a solid, powerful watch that is astonishingly light. Equipped with a helium escapement valve that protects the movement from the pressure of the water and guarantees total water-resistance to 1000 metres, this timekeeping instrument has been designed by and for diving aficionados, based on the 2007 model and powered by an automatic movement housed in a steel case. With its chronograph function and extendible rubber strap, it boasts all the features of a diver’s watch par excellence.

Wearing the ARGONAUT 1000 TQ is an invitation to explore the magnificent splendours of the ocean depths, but also to travel through time. As its name suggests, this timekeeper evokes the legend of Jason who, in Homer’s Odyssey, took fifty travelling companions, the Argonauts, on board his ship. Together, they braved high winds and storms and faced enemies both human and divine, the fierce hostility of a dragon and a thousand other obstacles in their quest to rescue the famous Golden Fleece. The expedition’s successful outcome resulted in Jason becoming king. Associated with such extraordinary feats, the Argonauts represent daring and strength of character, qualities expressed in the latest ARGONAUT model from CX Swiss Military Watch™.

Made even more fascinating by the prodigious exploits its name evokes, the ARGONAUT 1000 TQ offers cutting-edge technology and comfort. Lighter than ever thanks to its high-performance titanium case, this new 46 mm diver’s watch benefits from the brand’s experience as a top-level military and sports watch specialist.

Both stylish and functional, the ARGONAUT 1000 TQ features over-sized luminescent hands and hour markers for trouble-free reading underwater. The extra-large crown, developed for easy use in any situation, and the graduated 60-minute unidirectional rotating bezel are also designed for greater diving security. Sporting a silver, black, yellow or blue dial, the watch comes on a titanium bracelet with a double safety folding clasp, or on a rubber strap with an extension for dry-suit diving.
