Recent darling of Kickstarter, the Laventure team were present to show off some of their offerings at the Incubator section of BaselWorld. This is (if memory serves) the Sous - Marine. A pretty straight forward proposition - hours, minutes, seconds and a rotating bezel.
The case is stainless steel and measures 41 mm in diameter. The movement is ETA's 2824-2.
For those inclined, here are the pertinents -
|Materials :||Stainless Steel|
|Diameter :||41 mm|
|Lugs to lugs length :||48,50 mm|
|Thickness :||10.20 mm (without glass) / 12.30 mm (with glass)|
|Bezel :||Unidirectional rotating 120 clicks with light capsule|
|Crown :||Screwed for a better seal|
|Glass :||Domed sapphire type "Superdome" internal anti-reflective coating|
|Case Back :||Solid Case Back for better sealing in Stainless Steel|
|Manufacturer :||ETA SA Manufacture Horlogère Suisse|
|Finish :||TOP Grade : set and adjusted on 5 positions|
|Winding :||Automatic winding ball bearing|
|Power reserve :||38 hours|
|Number of jewels :||25|
|Spiral Spring :||Anachron|
|Barrel Spring :||Nivarox NZ|
|Balance Wheel :||Glucydur|
|Shock absorber :||Incablock|
|Frequency :||28,800 A / h (4 Hz)|
The price is, in my honest opinion, a wee-bit ambitious at 2,350 CHF, but in fairness, the previous models and the bronze edition have all sold well, so clearly there is a market out there.
And I look forward to seeing what might be next up for Laventure.
