DAVOSA launches the Ternos Professional GMT Black&White in collaboration with photographer and freeskier Luca Tribondeau.
The Austrian sports ace has taken part in alpine ski races and the new slopestyle discipline at the Olympic Games in Sochi; he is also a passionate surfer and in recent years has begun to make a name for himself as a photographer. With the new limited edition DAVOSA Ternos Professional GMT, he now turns his hand to watch design.
DAVOSA gave Luca Tribondeau the opportunity to incorporate his own ideas in realising an individual version of the popular GMT model of the Ternos Professional. The result is the 500-piece, limited edition Black&White.
The Ternos Professional GMT is equipped with the tried and tested Swiss DAV 3032 automatic movement with hour, minute and central second hands, GMT and date display with magnifying lens function at 3 o’clock. It is integrated in a stainless steel case that is 42 mm in diameter and 15.5 mm in height.
The striking hands and indices – a triangle at 12 o’clock, rectangles at 9 and 6 o’clock and circles at the full hours – are already familiar from the Ternos Professional, but have received an anthracite plating to highlight them against the white dial. The use of luminescent Super-LumiNova on the hands and numerals ensures optimum functionality even in restricted visibility.
New design elements include a white dial and an instantly discernible, bright orange GMT hand that lets you read the hour in a second time zone on the surrounding half white, half black ceramic bezel.
The watch is topped by a scratch-resistant, anti-reflective sapphire crystal, while the underneath is protected by a screw-down, stainless steel back. The case is water resistant to 20 ATM for risk-free use in and under water.
At Luca Tribondeau’s request, the watch is supplied with two contrasting straps. As well as a classic stainless steel strap, there is a robust, replacement nylon strap that runs underneath the case.
The Ternos Professional GMT Black&White comes in an exclusive wooden box with an accompanying booklet. This timepiece retails at 1348 Euros. The Ternos Professional GMT is available from July 2019.
