WRISTWATCH

Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Ultra Deep Watch

With Omega’s Seamaster you can dive to the deepest point possible! The watch is certified to 15,000 meters — a depth that doesn’t even exist — with a substantial 52.5 mm case that is 28 mm thick and powered by Omega’s caliber 8912 movement. The Seamaster Planet Ocean wristwatch takes the dive watch technology to a new level and temps you to seek new adventures.

Omega has been a leader in the world of deep sea diving watches since 1932, but this new timepiece takes them further beneath the surface than ever before. The Five Deeps Expedition, the world’s first manned expedition to the deepest point in each of the five oceans, is the brainchild of a submersible pilot and adventurer Victor Vescovo: the first person to have reached both the highest and lowest points on the planet.  By the way, Vescovo recently set a new world record for the deepest dive at 10,928 meters (35,853 feet) in the Sirena Deep of the Mariana Trench, and this Seamaster was along for the ride.

The Seamaster or the “Ultra Deep” is made of forged Grade 5 titanium. Like the submersible, Omega’s creation was built to last: designed for multiple dives and not just a single shot at the world record.

Junghans Max Bill Automatic Wristwatch

As one of the most extraordinary designers of the 20th century, the architect, painter, sculptor, and product designer Max Bill left behind an amazing life’s work, including one of the most fascinating watch collections of recent decades. This model is a slight adaptation of the original concept of him for Junghans in 1961.

Red Dot Design Award 2018: The new color interpretation emphasizes the clear and reduced form language of the watch classic: discreet grey and gold shades place the minimalist design at the forefront, the sand gold colored case take a less prominent position. The dial is clearly placed, making it in conjunction with the domed glass good to read. Grey shades on the dial and strap complete the purist overall impression. Due max bill Automatic displays historical charm and due to its clear form language exhibits at the same time high functionality.

The series of mechanical wristwatches that Max Bill created for Junghans then is still produced largely unchanged today. From the purist dial to the specially-created, rounded numerals and on to the domed glass that accentuates the historical charm of the watch. The wonderful simplicity of the restrained case also guides the gaze to the truly important thing: the time. The blend of utility value and beauty could not be better. The creative philosophy of Max Bill lives on in these watches.
