Spinnaker, the renowned watchmaker, has introduced a limited edition timepiece that pays homage to one of the most important figures in the history of diving. The Spinnaker Fleuss Automatic Marlborough Limited Edition watch is a vintage-inspired timepiece that celebrates the life and legacy of Henry Albert Fleuss, the inventor of the self-contained diving apparatus.
Fleuss was a pioneer dive engineer who revolutionized the world of underwater exploration with his invention. His innovative diving apparatus paved the way for safer and deeper exploration of the seas, and his contribution set the scene for diving and underwater pioneers like Jaques Cousteau and Hans Hass.
The limited edition Spinnaker Fleuss Automatic Marlborough watch is a testament to Fleuss’s legacy and spirit of ingenuity from the early 20th century. The functional neo-vintage styling of the watch is highlighted by the cathedral-style hour and minute hands that are cohesively matched with a set of hour indexes lathered in Swiss Super-LumiNova for optimal visibility in low-light conditions. The semi see-through dial delivers a clear and legible view of the time, with a date window positioned at 6 o’clock.
The watch is resolute, robust, and reliable, making it an ideal choice for diving enthusiasts. The solid marine grade stainless steel case measures 43mm in diameter and is topped with a scratch-resistant sapphire lens. The watch is engineered to modern-day dive watch requirements and is water-resistant to 15 ATM (150M).
The Spinnaker Fleuss Automatic Marlborough Limited Edition watch is powered by the workhorse, reliably enduring quality of a TMI NH35 automatic movement. It features an updated custom-built 7-link solid stainless steel bracelet with a fold-over diver clasp. Additionally, this limited edition watch comes with an extra genuine leather water-resistant strap for added versatility and wear.
The Spinnaker Fleuss Automatic Marlborough Limited Edition watch is a unique and stunning tribute to one of the most important pioneers in diving history. This vintage-inspired timepiece is limited to only 500 pieces, making it a must-have for any serious watch collector or diving enthusiast.
