It’s official! We’ve just announced a new member of the Hydroscaph family in time for Baselworld 2015. This GMT Power-Reserve exploration machine will be unveiled during the show this year. And it’s pure CLERC power and luxury to the core.
Designed to withstand the extreme conditions of deep-sea diving, the Hydroscaph GMT Power-Reserve Chronometer is a sophisticated adventurer that is just at home in the abyss as on the wrist of a stylish globetrotter. Its ultra-technical case topped by an exclusive bezel – avoiding an accidental deregulation while diving – is equipped with an automatic helium release valve guaranteeing water resistance to 800 meters, while its patented lateral reinforcements protect it from shocks. The remarkably precise and reliable new Clerc Calibre C610 is certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC). This mechanical self-winding movement endowed with a 42-hour power reserve notably drives an oversized 24-hour dual-time display at 6 o’clock.
