With its new Blackshark, Atlantic Watch SA remains faithful to the diving legacy that was reaffirmed by the successful Seashark. This new creation also bears the inimitable signature of the Swiss company. Made of stainless steel with a black physical vapor deposition (PVD) coating, this timepiece is a role model of functionality and high-end technology.
The wave pattern of its jet-black dial underscores the environment for which it is intended. The screw-down crown and chronograph buttons as well as the screwed back assure extreme water-resistance to 300 meters. The scratch-resistant sapphire crystal is anti-reflection coated on the inside, resulting in the eminent legibility of the time indications and subsidiary dials.
Also finished with a black PVD coating, the solid-steel bracelet with the iconic Seashark ridge accents and the double safety clasp is an object lesson in resilience. The Atlantic Blackshark contains a high-precision ETA Swiss Made quartz chronograph movement.
The Blackshark is also available as a self-winding model with the robust and reliable 25-jewel ETA Swiss Made 2824-2 mechanical movement. The display back reveals this beautiful, meticulously decorated masterpiece without compromising the case’s water resistance to 300 meters.
