The Pforzheim (Germany) based watch brand Circula has announced the launch of AquaSport, a skin diver watch designed with the largest German watch forum.
The design of the AquaSport, like the Circula Heritage collection before, is based on a historical model from the watch brand, which have been modernized in line with the spirit of the times.
This new Circula diver’s watch was developed together with members of the largest German speaking watch forum. The forum with over 65,000 watch enthusiasts actively participated in the design and development process, over 400 contributions were written in half a year for the AquaSport.
Slightly larger than the historical model, its robust stainless steel case boasts a pillow-shaped case inspired by the retro style of the 1970s. Measuring 39mm diameter and equipped with a screwed-down crown, the watch has a water resistance up to 200 meters.
The sapphire crystal glass guarantees a scratch-free view of the multilayered dial with wave decoration or sunburst pattern. The AquaSport watch houses a high-quality and precise Swiss mechanical movement with automatic winding.
The movement options are ETA 2824-2 and STP 1-11. For the first time, Circula is also presenting the option of purchasing a certified chronometer, which has been strictly tested for extreme precision by the Swiss chronometer testing center COSC.
The new AquaSport combines the design of the 1970s skin divers with classic and sporty colors that set accents. The dials are available in four different colors, and as a special extra, the bezel insert is made of scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. The night readability is guaranteed by high quality Swiss Super-LumiNova®.
The AquaSport watch comes either on a solid stainless steel bracelet in a beads-of-rice design, or on a tropic rubber strap with a stainless steel pin buckle, which were popular on the icons of the 1970s. Leather straps with quick release exchange system are also optionally available.
The Circula AquaSport can now be pre-ordered in the four colors and with three different straps on https://circulawatches.com/en from USD 490, incl. shipping. If you pre-order before November 20th, you will receive a quartz watch or a watch strap of your choice as a bonus, worth up to € 145. Delivery is planned before Christmas 2020.
Like all mechanical Circula watches, the AquaSport is also built in Pforzheim.
