The DAVOSA Ternos Professional is a popular divers’ watch thanks to its design, quality and functionality. Now, the brand presents a new limited, 500-piece edition of this watch featuring a black-on-black design.The 42 mm-diameter surgical steel case of this new version is treated with black DLC plating, which makes the watch more scratch resistant, tougher and more resilient.
The case is topped by flat sapphire crystal with an inner antireflective coating and the screw-down back boasts an elaborately structured carbon design and carries a limited-edition number as an additional feature of the DAVOSA Ternos Pro Black Suit.
It houses the high-quality Swiss DAV 3021 automatic movement, based on a Sellita SW200 movement.
The Black Suit proves that black can be multifaceted: a carefully coordinated combination of different textures makes all the difference here. Indices and hands with satined surfaces and a filling of black Super-Luminova create a subtle contrast against the structured, matt black dial. Despite their black colour, the glossy figures of the minute scale are easily readable against the circular, matted bezel inlay of high-tech ceramic.
Black Suit is completed by a DLC-plated or pure stainless-steel bracelet, depending on the version, and a metal strap with screwed links, safety buckle and a diving extension.
Water resistance of up to 500 metres (50 ATM) allows for longer expeditions into deeper and darker waters. The automatic helium valve at 9 o’clock regulates pressure inside the watch and ensures continual pressure equalization while resurfacing to prevent the sapphire crystal from being lifted out of its surround. Back on land, this piece of professional divers’ equipment is transformed into a timepiece with a classic design idiom and a modern look.
The limited-edition models come with a certificate in a varnished wooden presentation case.
