DEFYING CONVENTION WHILE PAYING HOMAGE TO TRADITIONS
AN UNMISTAKABLE PRESENCE
The Piccard's case nods in the direction of a famous "bubble" lensed diver timepiece that was tested aboard the Bathyscaphe. Crafted solidly out of marine grade 316L, it is the super domed sapphire crystal lens that captures and pronounces the unmistakable silhouette of the Piccard. With 550 metres of water resistance, the Piccard also features an automatically regulating helium release valve.
CLARITY & LEGIBILITY
Solid, unfussy clearly legible baton shaped applied indexes are rich with Swiss superluminova - enabling a bright legible readout throughout - harmonizing with the baton shaped hour and minute hands and "lollipop" seconds hand gliding across the dial face.
A Seiko built, TMI Japanese automatic NH35 movement is built into the case of the Piccard and delivers a reliable and enduring timekeeping experience.
INSPIRED BY THE DEEPEST DIVE
The Piccard draws inspiration from the groundbreaking work of Jaques Piccard, who with Don Walsh piloted the Bathyscaphe Trieste to the bottom of the Mariana Trench in 1960. From form to story to build, the Piccard timepiece encapsulates the spirit of both men and machine of historic and contemporary deep, (very deep) sea exploration through equipment designed to test the most excruciating of conditions.
