Water resistant up to 4000 meters, the DELMA Blue Shark III Black Edition ventures into some of the world’s most formidable underwater locations with the release of a new limited-edition series featuring a scratch-resistant black DLC case.
DELMA sent the Blue Shark III Black Edition with cave diver, photographer and explorer Klaus Thymannon a brave expedition deep into the underwater caves of the Yucatan Peninsula in Tulum, Mexico. The area hosts the world’s largest underwater cave system with a network of interconnected submerged labyrinths.
Klaus ventured through passages of exposed groundwater in the jungle floor into narrow corridors of subterranean rock where he observed raw undisturbed geological surfaces created over thousands of years. The DELMA Blue Shark III served as a steadfast guide and connection to life aboveground.
The new Blue Shark III Black Edition is equipped with the collection’s signature helium escape valve and crown protection. Essential features for professional diving including the bold luminous hands and indexes stand out from a powerful black, blue or orange dial. The black unidirectional bezel and bracelet are discreet and resilient.
All three versions come with an additional black genuine rubber strap and a black DLC coated buckle with bespoke tools for interchanging the bracelets.
