Gerald Clerc, CEO of Clerc SA
Clerc brand has been family business since 1874. Watchuseek team met with brand CEO, Gerald Clerc, and he explained to us what the Hydroscaph Central Chronograph Limited Edition is a very special and important diving watch.
The two central hands provide an original short-time display. The first central sweep-seconds hand indicates the chronograph seconds, while the the second hand indicates the chronograph minutes. This makes for an easier reading of elapsed time just as reading the time traditionally.
The left sub-dial is the 24-hour day/night indicator while the right sub-dial is the small seconds.
What makes this watch exceptional is the 103-part case with octagonal locking bezel which cannot cause accidental deregulation during a dive. The crown is integrated into the case. The watch has guaranteed water resistance of 500 meters. The lugs are very interesting since they all pivot independently like an independent suspension in a car. Which makes it very easy to wear on the wrist as the lugs adapt to your wrist.
The cases come in three variations - high density steel, DLC, 18k rose/black DLC with a choice of rubber strap or rubber-treated hornback crocodile strap.
