LAVENTURE Sous-Marine

LAVENTURE, the independent Swiss watch brand based in Neuchâtel, presents Sous Marine, a recreational diving timepiece with a water resistance up to 200m/660ft.

Produced in limited editions of 50 pieces per model and available in stainless steel and Bronze CuSn8 versions, the Sous-Marine watch comes with a rugged yet comfortable case measuring 41mm diameter and topped with an ultra-domed sapphire glass. The “Superdome” type front glass offers a vintage style and features an internal anti-reflective coating.

The watch case boasts a refined and elegant look thanks to its polished, satin and micro-blasted finishing. Its uni-directional bezel, a must have feature of modern diving watches, features a light capsule and accurately calculates the duration of immersion and the passage of the different levels during diving. The screwed down crown along with oversized seals ensures excellent water resistance.

The LAVENTURE Sous-Marine watch is equipped with the Swiss ETA 2824-2 automatic movement renowned for its technical legacy and reliability. This movement features 25 jewels and beats 28,800 times per hour, equal to 4 Hertz.

The “sandwich” construction dial with sleek graphic design ensures maximum legibility. The LAVENTURE Sous-Marine watch is available in three dial versions: Green smoke lacquer, Blue smoke lacquer and Black Galvanic.

The dial is composed of two superimposed plates. In first two versions, the brushed upper part is lacquered with a subtle gradient of green or blue color darkening on the edges. In the third version, the upper part is black galvanic.

At the location of the indexes, a cut-out reveals the beige “vintage” photo luminescent coating covering the lower plate. This contrast of light beige and dark lacquer offers an optimal reading during day or night, thanks to a homogeneous and controlled photoluminescence. The hands and markings are “gilt” metallic colors “gold” ensuring optimal contrasts and captivating reflections, for a reinforced “vintage” look.

The Sous-Marine watch is available with vegetable tanned Calf leather strap or black rubber strap.

Finally, each LAVENTURE Sous-Marine watch is delivered in a box inspired by the old books of Jules Verne. The box also houses an additional bracelet if you have chosen one, the tool to change the bracelets, the user manual and the 2-year warranty certificate.
