Clerc Hydroscaph Steel GMT, one of the world’s most sophisticated diver’s watches is now available in new shades. The Hydrograph Steel is a sleekly sophisticated watch housed in an ultra-complex 96-part case that called for a whole new construction process, and offering an unprecedented vision of ocean-going fine watchmaking.
Water-resistant to 1000 meters, this exceptional model meets the highest standards of Swiss craftsmanship and is equipped with an automatic helium escapement valve as well as lateral reinforcements. Its exclusive self-winding C606 movement drives the hours, minutes, seconds and the power-reserve display at 6 o’clock, as well as the window-type date at 3 o’clock and the dual time-zone indication at 12 o’clock – adjustable by means of a dedicated crown at 10 o’clock.
The new Hydroscaph Steel GMT features several case options: in polished steel, blackened steel or two-tone steel and 18K red gold. The iconic Hydroscaph style signature, its octagonal case shape based on a perfect square combined with a perfect circle, is spectacularly highlighted in this generously sized 49.6mm model equipped with lugs that ideally adjust to all wrist sizes and shapes and even over a diving suit.
The rotating bezel in steel or 18K gold according to the version pivots thanks to a retractable flap on a crown integrated into the case middle at 2 o’clock. Returning the flap to its initial position securely locks the bezel, thus avoiding any risk of accidental deregulation while diving.
The face of the Hydroscaph Steel has adopted new shades while maintaining perfect readability. On the all-steel models, the dual time-zone hand as well as the power-reserve display come in bright yellow or vivid blue, lending an extremely sporty and dynamic touch; the blackened steel version takes on subtle shades of black and grey; and the two-tone variation features gold-plated hands and white or black hour-markers.
These temporal indications stand enriched with new aesthetically defined zones: a pyramid-type relief on the blackened steel upper part; and a smooth, matt surface on the lower part in blackened or gold-plated steel, depending on the version. These subtle effects all contribute to giving a resolutely high-tech appearance to this exploration machine.
