Tempvs Compvtare Unveils SharkWatcher Diving Chronograph

Nov 22, 2010
The horological company Tempvs Compvtare is proud to take wraps off its debut SharkWatcher diving chronograph.

Designed by Nicolas Jeanson, it pays tribute to the movie “SharkWater”, by Rob Stewart. The movie draws attention to the catastrophic effects of the organized hunting for the shark - the oldest predator of our oceans.

Inspired by the marvelous sub-aquatic world, the new Tempvs Compvtare diving watch is available with a 47 mm case. Crafted from high-quality steel, it demonstrates sharp lugs. These elements expose on their ends attractive triangles, tipped with a coat of luminous compound. The latter ensures a perfect level of darkness visibility.

The case is also equipped with an impressive winding crown. It is marked with “SW” inscription - two initial letters of the model’s name.

The winding crown at 3 o’clock is kept company by two chronograph pushers, nestled at 2 and 4 o’clock. The crown and the pushers are also inlaid with the luminous substance. The model provides 200-meter water-resistance.

The case is outlined by a black rotating bezel, which represents a clever combination of sharp angles and smooth edges. It boasts light-toned oversized Arabic numerals, stick-shaped markers and a dot-shaped marker, presented at 12 o’clock. The bezel securely holds a sapphire crystal, treated with an anti-reflective coating.

The glass mentioned serves to protect a bewitching dial, also black. The display of the new SharkWatcher timepiece indicates hours and minutes by means of unique split, mirror image hands, applied with the blue luminous compound. The same lume is used for the chronograph counters, featured at 6, 9 and 12 o’clock. The special attention getter of the display is a central long seconds hand, dressed in red.

Moreover, the dial offers day and date indications, presented in separate apertures at 3 o’clock. The impeccable design of the watch face is completed by the brand’s name and the model’s name, revealed above and beneath the day and date exhibition windows.

The functions, which also include a calculation of immersion time, are animated by a mechanical automatic chronograph movement - ETA 7750. It supplies a 42-hour power reserve.

The new Tempvs Compvtare watch, which sends a clear message on the environmental preservation, is teamed with a matching dark-colored strap.
