A space odyssey, seen through blue-tinted sapphire crystal…
Clerc is a small, high-end, family owned brand that makes some very cool dive watches…but this watch seems more geared towards space travel if you ask me. Very original design and nice use of advanced watch technology such as silicon escapement, a crown-protection system, and a couple cool blue-tinted sapphire crystal windows. Also a power reserve indicator and retrograde date functions on the dial!
The resemblance to Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic is striking! Price will likely be in the range of $15,000-$20,000.
