A watch built to withstand 3000m of crushing water resistance and crafted from marine bronze which ages based on your experiences.
The Abyss was conceived to survive the most punishing of depths. Every part of the case was redesigned to resist the intense water pressures which would easily crush metals.
Bronze was the natural choice for the Abyss, closely linked to the sea as it is one of the most corrosion resistant metals available. An oxide layer, called a patina, forms a protective skin over time to protect the metal. This patina individualizes each Abyss, creating completely unique pieces. What starts out as a shiny rose-gold, ages with the atmosphere into a rustic brown.
Maintaining a water resistance of up to 3000m requires a complex balance of thick metal casings and fine gaskets sealing every possible point of leakage. A double O-ring system seals the hefty 4mm thick stainless steel screwdown caseback.
