Sometimes it seems that a brand like Clerc has to try that bit harder than its more illustrious peers to stand up and be noticed.
Based in Geneva, owner Gérald Clerc doesn’t just keep the eponymous watch brand going but also tries to innovate and expand the business all the time.
This passion comes through in the Hydroscaph H1 Chronometer, a formidable underwater exploring machine.
The over-engineered case construction enables it to plunge as deep as 500 metres in complete safety thanks to Clerc’s exclusive patented safety features, while the exclusive self-winding Clerc Calibre C609 beating at the heart of it has received COSC certification, thereby joining the select circle of authentic chronometers.
The signature bezel key, located at the 10 o’clock position, operates and locks the bezel and is a real selling point.
Hand-crafted in Switzerland and coming with a 3-year international warranty, the Hydroscaph H1 Chronometer is not to be underestimated and holds its own next to any of the other brilliant watches in this category.
