More than 10 years after the first edition was created by the naval engineer Dino Zei, the Nautilo now comes in a range of bold colors. The famous diving watch glows blue, yellow or green. Recognizable with its cushion case and its crown screwed at 4 o’clock, the new Nautilos 2017 take the 3 colors and bring them bursting to life.
While the NATO bracelet made its return last year with the Sailing edition, the new collection, delivered this summer, presents models complete with bi-colour bracelets. On the famous “Bottom Time”, the marking of the first fifteen minutes on the bezel is also in tune with these tones. To continue the two-color theme, the counterweight of the second hand, which takes the shape of the logo, also matches.
The work on the slightly domed sapphire crystal brings a feeling of finesse and , at the same time, the new ceramic bezel adds depth and shine to the overall aesthetic. Echoing the numbers 20 and 40 engraved on the bezel, a reshaped dial evokes the A of ANONIMO where the appliques at noon, 4o’clock and 8 o’clock have double sticks. This triangular reading, which is characteristic of the brand, ensures that there is a perfect legibility of the date sitting at 6 o’clock.
Like the entire Nautilo collection, this “diver” is equipped with the efficient Sellita SW200-1 automatic movement. Waterproof to 200 metres, the brushed steel and DLC case measuring 44.4 mm diameter offers a bold look. The watch comes either with the original black rubber strap or with the bi-colour NATO bracelet.
