[Press Release] With the new Hydroscaph Limited Edition Automatic Chronograph, the prestigious Hydroscaph collection developed by Clerc Genève is welcoming a short-time measuring instrument packed with innovations. Entirely in line with the landmark technical timers representing successive breakthroughs in the history of timekeeping, the new Hydroscaph Limited Edition Automatic Chronograph brings to the wrist the precise handling and perfect readability of competition instruments. Its range of useful, reliable and practical functions will delight both speed lovers and diving enthusiasts.
The Hydroscaph Limited Edition Automatic Chronograph is innovative in more than one respect. First of all, its exclusive Clerc C608 self-winding movement features a central chronograph reading offering a technical and original display of short-time measurements. There are no off-centred, barely readable subdials, but instead a sweep-seconds hand twined with a running central hand indicating the minutes. This original 60-minute display ensures exceptional legibility that is just as useful on land as in the darkness prevailing at great depths. This mechanical movement beating at a high frequency of 4 Hertz (28,800 vibrations per hour) also drives the hour and minute hands, small seconds at 3 o’clock, a date display at 6 o’clock and a 24-hour day/night indication at 9 o’clock – a refined touch that proves extremely practical when adjusting the date. This exclusive Clerc Calibre C608 is handassembled according to with the highest Swiss watchmaking standards.
