Welcome to Openwater! This is your new CLERC blog.
Founded in 1874 and based in Geneva, Switzerland, CLERC manufactures powerful luxury exploration machines designed for extreme life conditions – the kind you find at 1,500 feet below sea level. At those depths, survival depends on uncompromising quality, precision, toughness, and reliability. This is how CLERC has been crafting watches for 140 years.
But on land and in everyday life, discerning luxury watch lovers expect comfort, elegance, style, and prestige.
So we said, why not have both? And set out to create a new breed of luxury watch called CLERC Hydroscaph. It combines raw power with pure luxury in a distinctly identifiable timepiece. And there’s nothing else like it in the world.
This blog is the story of these amazing exploration machines and the people who own them. We’ll be talking about the watches themselves, of course. But also about the craftsmanship and the manufacturing know-how it takes to design and build the CLERC Hydroscaphs. We’ll highlight our artisans, we’ll highlight you, our Clerciste customers and fans, and promote the CLERC way of life from all over the world.
Thanks for diving with us into this new exciting journey. We look forward to your participation!
Your CLERC team.
