Clerc Geneve Hydroscaph Central Chronograph Steel (Limited Edition)

Here’s a new model unveiled this week by Clerc Geneve — the Hydroscaph Steel Central Chronograph, in a limited edition of 500 pieces in choice of metals (with or without DLC finish).   Perpetuelle regulars are already familiar with the Hydroscaph and its unique (“square in circle”), highly complex case (103 parts) that makes it one of the most exceptional dive watches on the market today.  This particular model represents a modest extension of the Hydroscaph Central Chronograph lineup, following the very colorful Clerc Clockwork Orange (Feb 2011)  and before that the Hydroscaphe Central Chronograph in a beautiful blend of black and orange (March 2011).  See below for an explanation of how the central chronograph works and the other dial functions.  No doubt that Gerald Clerc clearly has a winner on his hands here with the Hydroscaph Central Chronograph series.

Clerc Hydroscaph Central Chronograph Steel

Limited Edition 500 pieces in each of steel, black DLC steel, and rose gold+DLC steel

45mm case (500 meter water resistance),  automatic mechanical Clerc C608 movement, fitted with rubber or rubber-treated hornback crocodile straps secured by folding clasps

note the “tuning fork” style hour/minute hands and the “central chronograph” setup — two central-set hands (instead of the oft-seen 3 subdials on a chronograph watch) chronograph timing (orange hand for seconds, white hand for minutes).  At 3 o’clock is a non-chrono seconds subdial and at 9 o’clock is a 24 hr/GMT functionL

    That really is a beautiful watch. Sector also makes great sports watches that look neat and really hold up nicely. I own a couple different models including the Ocean Master and have had great results with them. They truly are a great sports watch and the Ocean Master is really nice for diving if you ever decide to do so.
