A UNIQUE DIVING WATCH

Developed in Switzerland with free diver champion Davide Carrera (record at -123 meters in Constant Weight), the Deep-Ocean is a modern and sustainable automatic diving watch exclusively sold to the owners of a Hipporium NFT. 

Made in Stainless Steel to professional diving standards (-300 meters/1’000ft), the Deep-Ocean comes with various components made from recycled plastics found in the Oceans, fitted with straps made of bio-rubber and nylon from recycled fishing nets.

The 42mm stainless steel case plays with different finishing to highlight a very sharp design. Water resistant to 300m/1’000 ft, the case features a patented quick-release strap system with a beautiful polished push-button, and a wheel-button at 09:30 that sets the internal bi-directional bezel, used to measure the duration of the dive.

The Deep-Ocean comes with different colors and different levels of rarity for each reference. Behind the triple-thickness sapphire crystal treated with several layers of anti-reflective coating, the open-heart dial highlights the automatic movement through a tinted mineral glass.

A unique system (patent pending) attaches the strap to the case with a quick-release button located on the case at 6 and 12, allowing quick and easy strap interchangeability.
