This dive watch, which is water-resistant to a depth of 200 meters, takes its name from one of the last marvels of Venetian naval technology, the Nereide submarine. This timepiece is in fact designed to withstand strong stresses, making it particularly suitable for those who practice water sports.

BK7 Crystal Bezel Insert
The BK7 Crystal has exceptional physical properties, is lead-free, relatively lighter and of higher quality than other glass crystals. Its properties are: low dispersion (with Abbe numbers around 60), the low refractive index (≈1.52) and high clarity. For these reasons, after a long research and development process, we decided to produce the new inserts with Nereide bezel in this material.
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.
