We felt we needed to keep the same philosophy we started with : A watch with a true respect of the vintage codes, without compromises, within the modern quality standards. To keep our values, we wanted to keep the size and proportion of this watch reasonable.
The diameter is 38mm at the case and 39mm with the bezel, with 47mm lug to lug and 12mm of thickness.
SAPPHIRE ALL THE WAY
Vintage divers have their unique charm with their domed glass. In the past these were often acrylic and prone to scratches for toolwatches.
The AQUASCAPHE comes with a double domed sapphire glass that will make it impossible to scratch. Sapphire being one of the toughest materials on earth that will make this watch ultra-resistant.
In addition to the double domed sapphire, we have used also sapphire on the bezel giving it a modern "bakelite" appearance enhancing the vintage style. It gives a unique "depth" to the bezel.
THREE COLORS THREE DIFFERENT ATMOSPHERES
• BLACK & SILVER (Grainy dial)
• BLACK & CREAM (Grainy dial)
• BLUE & GILT (Sunrays dial)
These three subtle variations in colour give the three unique versions and finishing.
STAINLESS STEEL STRAP ARE NOT EASY TO CHANGE?
Changing a stainless steel strap has always been difficult. You need to have the proper tools, to be confident and avoid scratches. We thought it's time to simplify the issue. This is why we came up with a system of easy-bars / quick release on our uniquely developed « beads of rice ». This only solid-links bracelet will fit perfectly on all wrists thanks to its adjustable size and a "vintage" clasp with 7 positions of micro-adjustment.
This "Beads of rice" bracelet will fit also every BALTIC watch and other watches in 20mm width. You can buy it separately here : BALTIC "Beads of rice"
MADE FOR DIVING PERFECT FOR EVERYDAY
The AQUASCAPHE is capable to dive to a depth of 200m. Toolwatches are often considered as the ultimate daily watch because they are waterproof, scratch resistant, shock-proof, and can be worn in any situation. It's a ultimate daily watch!
A TRUSTWORTHY MACHINE MIYOTA 9039
BALTIC has selected this movement for its reliability, precision and its thinness.
Watch enthusiasts often describe this automatic movement as a « tractor » for its robustness and reliability but often forget its thin size : 3,9mm. Our 9039 does not have the date, uncluttered and sophisticated it has a 42 hours power reserve.
All our watches are assembled in France, near the town of Besançon. Our movements are tested and precisely adjusted by our experienced watchmakers to be as precise as possible.
ALL OUR WATCHES ARE ASSEMBLED IN FRANCE
We truly think that today we need to act locally. This is why our watches are assembled by hand in France, near Besançon, by professional and experienced watchmakers.
They will use their expertise to assemble, adjust and test every BALTIC mechanical watch.
READABLE DAY AND NIGHT
To be able to read your AQUASCAPHE in the dark we used Super-Luminova to have a strong and long green-ish light.
The sapphire bezel markers (15/30/45) also stand out in dark conditions as do the hands.
