BALTIC AQUASCAPHE TITANIUM
A more technical evolution of the Aquascaphe Classic, the Aquascaphe Titanium collection, the latest addition to our range of diving watches, is the ideal ally for adventure. Its light and resistant titanium case, its 300m water resistance, and its 42 hours power reserve will allow you to live your most extreme explorations and expeditions in all serenity. The Aquascaphe Titanium has a 41mm diameter and is available in two colors: glossy blue or grained black.
Strong, light, corrosion resistant... Titanium was an obvious choice when we designed the case of this new adventure diver. To perfect its resistance, we decided to use a sapphire crystal and to surround it with a unidirectional bezel with brushed ceramic insert. The 55-gram titanium case has a 41mm diameter, 47mm lug to lug and a thickness of 13.6mm. A real toolwatch water resistant up to 300m that will last through time and accompany you in all situations.
Made of scratch-resistant ceramic, the bezel gives the Aquascaphe Titanium a unique character. The bezel is unidirectional and has 120 clicks for precise marking of the dive time.
Under the sapphire crystal of this Aquascaphe Titanium, we find a glossy blue or grained black dial with the indexes and hands of our compressor model Aquascaphe Dual-Crown. The dial has no date and keeps only the essential information for a quick reading underwater.
The indexes and hands of the Black model are coated with Super-LumiNova® C3 X1, while those of the Blue model are coated with Super-LumiNova® BGW9, two luminescent materials that ensure optimal legibility in the dark.
For this Aquascaphe Titanium collection, we have chosen to use a Japanese movement from the Miyota manufacture: the 9039. This movement is self-winding and offers a 42-hour power reserve. Chosen for its robustness and reliability, it ensures the Aquascaphe Titanium an optimal precision, no matter the environment or the conditions in which it is used.
This first series of Aquascaphe Titanium is offered at 300 pieces per model, each
one numbered with an engraved case back from 1 to 300. These two models will
join our permanent collection later on.
A few words from the founder:
"I inherited a collection of watches from a father that I never got the chance to know well. He was a photographer, a watch collector and a passionate man. He recorded his watch collection in a journal, keeping track of every watch that passed through his hands, with the history of each watch, price paid, from whom and what he traded for it in the case of a barter.
Being immersed in his journal and his collection for the past fifteen years began my own passion story. My father’s legacy led me to other collectors, and has been the backdrop for building our watch-making vision here at BALTIC.
BALTIC is the perfect homage to my father’s passion, and the ultimate way to express my inspirations through our creations. This name is a tribute to my father’s origins in north Poland along the Baltic Sea; his story will endure through our watches.
We aim to create timeless watches inspired from the vintage pieces in my father’s collection, to be worn and kept for generations."
