Boutique watchmaker NOVE takes a deep dive into elegance with their ultra-slim, super-sleek Swiss Made dive watch, Trident.
NOVE is the brainchild of a group of highly-experienced watch engineers and designers with a passion for developing beautiful, contemporary watches. With every timepiece, their engineers strive to push the technological boundaries of what’s possible, and the Trident is a classic example of their handiwork – a diver-style watch measuring a mere 6.8mm.
Slight yet durable, the Trident is a fresh take on the traditional dive watch, deviating from the typical chunky case construction. Inspired by the King of the Sea, the Trident exudes elegance with its ultra-slim design. And while its profile may be subtle, it’s also a statement piece, wearing just as well in the ocean as it would under the cuff.
In crafting a diver-style watch that is slender in shape without compromising on function, NOVE has managed to rejuvenate a classic, and the Trident’s 6.8mm casing was made possible with the Swiss Ronda 1062 Slimtech Quartz. A Quartz movement fits perfectly in line with NOVE’s pret-a-porter attitude, promoting an on-the-go lifestyle, and at the same time, providing accuracy and reliability.
The Trident has been built to withstand the heavy pressures of diving, while still wearing light on the wrist, weighing in at just 160 grams (including the bracelet). It features a 30mm sapphire crystal and screw-down crown which helps keep the case water resistant up to 200 meters.
Within the 46mm case lies the iconic NOVE dial, with its minimalist design encouraging tranquility and a sense of calm, of being in the moment. The hour and minute hands are coated in Super-LumiNova for legibility in dark conditions, and as with all NOVE watches, the dial is without a second hand – reflecting the company’s philosophy of urging its customers to focus less on telling time and more on living in the present.
The Trident’s unique three-lever stopper system keeps the gear-teethed bezel unidirectional, only rotating counterclockwise. NOVE wanted the Trident bezel to be a fail-safe for divers, allowing for accurate measure of their dive time – and peace of mind – by preventing accidental shifts in the bezel’s position.
What’s more, the Trident’s bracelet has a high-quality buckle system and butterfly clasp, requiring both sides to be pressed for release, meaning it will stay secure on your wrist whether you’re on a dive or out on the town.
NOVE invests in high-quality materials and craftsmanship to create lasting timepieces that are modern and playful, led by a brand philosophy that centers on leading a balanced life and remembering to value time. With Trident, NOVE have cleverly transformed the traditional dive watch into a fine timepiece, one that is as much an outdoorsman’s watch as it is a businessman’s, suited to the demanding conditions of rock climbing, yet also fitting in perfectly at a cocktail party.
The Trident has a guaranteed battery life of six years and comes with a 24-month warranty.
The distinctively-designed diver is available in 10 different colored pieces, including stainless steel, IP Dark Blue, IP Black and IP Rose Gold, with prices starting at US$450.
