Between tradition and modernity
With this second limited edition, Laventure pays tribute to the underwater world and is inspired by the diving watches of the 60’s, which have marked the history of watchmaking. Laventure’s second timepiece is a contemporary reinterpretation of these inspirational tools. Truly an instrument for the adventurer who appreciates fine objects, Laventure Sous-Marine, a watch of character, makes a sort of link from past to present and tradition to modernity.
Made in Switzerland
To earn the stamp Swiss made, a watch must satisfy the minimum 60% Swiss value requirement. A laventure watch is more than 94% Swiss value. This quality requirement ensures that the goal of achieving beautiful products is met. Truly a local production with Design in Neuchâtel and Conception and Production in La Chaux-de-Fonds: these two locations separated by only 18kms. Passionate craftsmen transform quality materials. A limited edition for an exclusive product, Laventure watches are limited to 50 pieces, numbered with a beautiful and deep engraving on the background. By creating one new limited edition model per year, the vintage Laventure is established.
Laventure Sous-Marine boasts a 41mm diameter case that fits all wrists. It is adorned with an ultra-domed sapphire glass "Superdome" type, resolutely vintage with an internal anti-reflective coating. The crown is screwed and the seals are oversized, ensuring excellent sealing (200m = 660ft). The finishes are polished, satin and micro-blasted for a refined and elegant look. Its unidirectional rotating bezel with a light capsule will allow you during your dives to accurately calculate the duration of immersion and the passage of the different levels.
Laventure Sous-Marine sports a “sandwich” construction dial with sleek graphic design for maximum legibility. Composed of two superimposed plates, the brushed upper part, is lacquered with a subtle gradient of green color darkening on the edges. At the location of the indexes, a cut-out reveals the beige "vintage" photoluminescent coating covering the lower plate. This contrast of light beige and dark lacquer offers an optimal reading during day or night, thanks to a homogeneous and controlled photoluminescence. The hands and markings are “gilt” metallic colors “gold” ensuring optimal contrasts and captivating reflections, for a reinforced “vintage” look.
