Deep satin finish
This careful stylistic choice provides a more modern look to a design that aims to convey tradition and innovation at the same time. The deep satin finish is obtained through the use of special brushes by skilled craftsmen who finish each individual surface through a completely manual process. Several handmade steps are required to achieve a homogeneous result that passes the internal quality control process.
Swiss Super-LumiNova BGW9 is a phosphorescent pigment, otherwise known as Lume, emits a Blue-Green glow in the dark (as the name suggest) when properly charged by either sunlight or artificial light. In a daylight condition, BGW9 is white in color.
Compared to the much more widespread C1 pigment, the BGW9 has a relative brightness more than triple, making it the most widespread solution in the haute horlogerie.
A case-back engraved with a story of heroes
Nereide’s hull, like that of her sister ship Nautilus, was shaped similar to a torpedo boat, designed by the well-kown Curio Bernardis. Nereide was a Nautilus-class submarine in the Italian Royal Navy (Italian: Règia Marina) during World War I. It was built 1911–1913 at the navy yard at Venice and was sunk in 1915 by the Austro-Hungarian submarine U-5 under the command of Georg Ritter von Trapp.
