Azimuth Xtreme-1 Collection for Passionate Explorers

Aug 24, 2010
Azimuth and Fernando Alberto Lozano Andrade, a well-known explorer from Mexico, have joined efforts to create the new Xtreme-1 collection. The novel Azimuth timepieces are aimed at extreme sports enthusiasts.

The Azimuth Xtreme-1 collection comprises three watch models:

  • the Sea Hum GMT,

  • the Sea Hum 3TZ (3 Time Zone),

  • the Deep Diver.

The Sea Hum GMT watch features the time in two different time zones and offers outstanding water-resistance - down to 1500 meters. The Sea Hum 3TZ allows to accurately read the time in three different time zones and its water-resistance rate is down to 500 meters.

The Deep Diver watch demonstrates a square titanium case and boasts the highest water-resistance level down to 2000 meters. It should be mentions that it is quite difficult to provide water-resistance of a square case. For the Deep Diver, Azimuth developed a separate capsule that accommodates an automatic ETA 2826-2 Big Date movement. The capsule is put inside the square case and firmly held by 6 screws.

The Sea Hum GMT and the Deep Diver watches are fitted with a Helium Escape Valve and an extra-strong double-domed crystal.

The Sea Hum GMT and the Sea Hum 3TZ watches demonstrate the same design, with the only difference found in their bezels - the GMT model is fitted with a diver's bezel, while the 3TZ model has a 24-hour scale bezel. The GMT watch also stands out due to its minute hand outlined by bright orange.

The 45mm case of both watches is sculptured from high-grade stainless steel. It is coupled with a rubber strap or a stainless steel bracelet fitted with a Deployant buckle.

The timepieces accommodate an automatic ETA 2836 movement, beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour.

The new Azimuth Xtreme-1 watches provide perfect readability under any light conditions due to Superluminova-coated big-sized hands applied and Superluminova-filled hour markers. Their one more advantage is a 46-hour power-reserve.

The Azimuth Xtreme-1 Deep Diver watch will accompany Fernando Alberto Lozano Andrade when he will be conquering the Ojos del Salado, the highest active volcano found on the border of Chile and Argentina.

It is interesting to mention that Fernando intends to become the first explorer to study the mysterious lake in the volcano, at the moment untouched and undocumented.
