DAVOSA Argonautic Carbon Limited Edition

Swiss watchmaker DAVOSA’s origins can be trace back to 1861. To mark its 140 years of watchmaking history, the brand created a limited edition series of its well-liked Argonautic diver’s watch.

Dressed in a Forged carbon case, this special edition is strictly limited to 140 pieces per dial colour series.  Typically used in aviation and aerospace, Forged carbon combines the exceptional qualities of metal and ceramic: making the case lightweight, highly resilient and extremely corrosion-resistant.

The screw-down case back displays a historic diving helmet in relief as well as the limited edition number. Equipped with a screw-in crown and a manual helium valve, watch offers water-resistance to a depth of 300 metres (30 ATM). Inside the case, a concealed DAV3021 Swiss automatic movement ticks away reliably.

Another style-defining feature of the Argonautic Carbon Limited Edition is the use of luminous pigment Super-LumiNova®. In neon orange or neon yellow, it adorns the skeletonised hands, numerals and the first quarter of an hour on the satined, circular ceramic bezel, ensuring excellent contrast during the day as well as good visibility at night.

Each timepiece is equipped with an integrated rubber strap with a folding clasp and diving extension. A second, interchangeable NATO flex strap is included in the exclusive wooden box, along with the limited certificate, to add a touch of variety.
