The young horological company Mola, which name means "sunfish" when translated from Latin, is thrilled to present its debut Mola 923M diver’s watch.
Its creation is inspired by the outstanding activity of two deep sea explorers William Beebe and Otis Barton. In 1934, with their bathyscaphe, these pioneers conquered the record-breaking depth of 923 meters.
Cleverly designed with participation of highly qualified specialists from Glashutte SUG, the model fulfils all requirements, specified for a diver’s watch.
The new Mola watch is available with a stainless steel 316L case, which features the dimensions of 48 mm x 14mm. It comes in three finishes: polished, bead-blasted or satin. On its front side, the case is assembled with a 4 mm thick glare-proofed sapphire crystal.
The timekeeping companion is equipped with a large left-positioned crown which is kept secured by a crown cap on a swivel arm. Another subtle signature which numbers among identifiers of the timepiece is its bold unidirectional rotating bezel, featuring an intermittently ridged flange.
Apart from a Superluminova-applied arrow, denoting north direction, the bezel also exposes other E, S and W compass markings with their recessed luminous pips.
The new Mola 923M diver's watch accommodates a Swiss-made ETA caliber 2895-2 movement. Set with 21 jewels, it operates at a frequency of 28,000 vibrations per hour and provides a 42-hour power reserve.
The caliber brings to life the functions of hours, minutes and seconds as well as that of date, indicated in an aperture at 4 o’clock.
This remarkable creation is presented on a natural rubber strap, closed with a folding deployant clasp. As its name suggests, the Mola watch is built to be water-resistant up to 923 meters.
