Clerc will show its new Hydroscaph GMT Power-Reserve Chronometer as Baselworld 2015, a watch that can withstand the pressure of dives up to 800m beneath the waves.
Clerc says: “Its ultra-technical case topped by an exclusive bezel – avoiding an accidental deregulation while diving – is equipped with an automatic helium release valve guaranteeing water resistance to 800 metres, while its patented lateral reinforcements protect it from shocks. The remarkably precise and reliable new Clerc Calibre C610 is certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC).
“This mechanical self-winding movement endowed with a 42-hour power reserve notably drives an oversized 24-hour dual-time display at 6 o’clock. An authentic benchmark in terms of advanced technologies and Swiss craftsmanship, the Hydroscaph GMT Power-Reserve Chronometer expresses a contemporary form of haute horlogerie driven by a daringly pioneering spirit.
“The forcefully elegant 83-part high-tech case with patented lateral protections is capable of withstanding the extreme conditions prevailing during an 800-metre immersion into the abyss. Like all Hydroscaph models, it has successfully passed a set of particularly stringent tests designed to ensure it meets standards extending well beyond conventional norms: traction, shocks, visibility, magnetism, water-tightness in deep waters, resistance to seawater and corrosion.”
