Pierre Kunz Launches New Spirit Diver Watch
Pierre Kunz has created the first diving watch designed in strict accordance with the very exact criteria of Swiss watchmaking.

This simple and extremely fashionable interpretation is full of contrasts. It reminds of the submarine environment as well as the mechanical layout of machine rooms.

Featuring conventional hours and minutes functions along with seconds on a rotating disc, the Spirit Diver is equipped with the depth gauge, inserted and secured afterwards on the side of the case. This very device enables the watch to challenge the depth.

A modular accessory, having an aesthetic value, it has also become an indispensable part of the timekeeping companion. This durable depth gauge holder hollowed out in Blaktop steel accommodates a sapphire glass tube. Similar to a spirit level, this tube serves as an indicator, reading the depth the diver has reached up to eighty meters.

Always in search for perfection and innovative ideas, Pierre Kunz has cooperated with outstanding specialists to manufacture this depth gauge sized 3.3 cm. Successfully miniaturized, the Spirit Diver provides a depth reproduction and a permanent display while diving or coming up to the surface.

The Spirit Diver keeps mascots of the brand with a texalium dial distinguished by perfect readability and trimmed with an index made of super-luminous material. The dial versions are available in black texalium or silvered texalium.

There are also presented unconventional diver flag interpretations. The diving timepiece dial is very specific: it exposes trapezium index, technical figures and a central screw-in applique embracing the seconds disc.

The sport case with a diameter equal to 44 mm is crafted in steel and Blaktop steel and trimmed with a toothed bezel, which turns in one direction. The bezel, finely sanded, provides a very matte finished surface and features rubber index. The crown made of Blaktop steel is protected for strength and durability – both features are distinctive for the sport collection.

The Pierre Kunz Spirit Diver watch provides 100-meter water-resistance. The case-back of the timepiece is covered with sapphire crystal. The rubber printed strap demonstrates a texalium texture and is matched with a folding steel buckle.

Pierre Kunz Original Insanity Watch
In 2007, at the WPHH, the renowned watchmaker Pierre Kunz officially unveiled its remarkable retrograde mechanical watch, named Infinity Looping. This timekeeper owes its name to the movements performed by a single hand in order to indicate the hours and minutes. It is attainable due to a cycloid hour hand, which travels along a scale that will make you think of a child’s Spirograph.

Although this watch is a bit difficult to read at the beginning, it is surely a true feast for the eyes.

No matter how appealing the Infinity Looping watch is, its name is misleading the English speaking audience. The point is that the Americans, for example, may perceive “looping” as “loopy”, which will definitely prevent watch enthusiasts from taking this timepiece seriously: these words seem to be similar, yet have different meanings. In Europe, however, this term stands for a part of a roller coaster that takes the riders upside down. read more
