Antonio Bernini Launches ‘The Ocean Series’ of funky wristwatches for men
‘Espy and Divulge in the Secrets of the Deep Blue Sea’
With countless technical & aesthetic innovations, The Ocean Series, is a signature statement of extravagance & flamboyance
February 2012: “Living the vita di lusso is not just about being in designer suits, it is also about the attitude that classifies you”. Antonio Bernini, renowned for its timepieces have created yet another benchmark with its new watch collection, ‘The Ocean Series’. Upholding the tenets of Italian design, innovation & engineering, the new collection effortlessly merges the element of luxury and lifestyle.
Crafted for a well-heeled man with a discerning taste for life’s very best, The Ocean Series of designer wristwatches for men is a unique combination of exemplary design with the finest in technical innovations. Inspired by the sheer magnitude of the sea, The Ocean Series is a compilation of exquisite timepieces. These professional watches are built to withstand high-levels of water-pressure of up to 300 meters below sea level. The wrist adornment is nothing less than dynamite; the helium escapement valve protects the movement and integrity of the watch underwater by detecting and balancing the atmospheric pressure building inside it. The valve of this unique device automatically opens up to release any gas trapped in the watch and once the diver is back on the deck, in the process of de-compressing, the valve automatically resumes its original position. Each timepiece from the new Ocean Series collection also has distinctly coloured special screw-in chrono pushers on the case side, which not only protect its mechanism, but also maintain the accuracy of its chronograph movement.
The collection has two main components; the King Marine and Dive Pro.
The King Marine takes cues from luxuriously designed yachts, the exhilarating spirit of a regatta and the extravagant lifestyle of a yacht-er. With avant-garde technology, 30 ATM water resistance, a cantilevered mechanism, a hardened anti-reflective crystal and a helium escapement valve that resists water-pressure 300 meters below sea level; this luxurious regatta-inspired watch comes with breathtaking design elements. The watch boasts of an octagonal screwed down bezel, a floating plinth dial and luminous indices for underwater visibility and night vision. So whether it’s a day at sea or an evening at the yacht club, the King Marine will always play its part to perfection.
The Dive Pro effortlessly captures the exploratory nature of an urban seafarer, drawn to ocean escapades like deep-sea diving and marine life investigation. And, far beneath the waves, in the dark watery-world of unchartered territories, the Dive Pro allows a marine adventurer to keep track of his dive-time. With luminous hands that provide visibility underwater, this watch is ideal for the night dive or the evening after the diver is back on land. Built to resist water, the Dive Pro also withstands underwater water-pressure up to 300 meters below sea level thanks to a helium escapement valve and a wedged unidirectional bezel, making it the ultimate timepiece for water-sports enthusiasts.
Priced between INR 26,000 – INR 30,000; ‘The Ocean Series’ from Antonio Bernini has created a touchstone in watch design, characterizing high performance and sleek design. The Italian watch maker has captured the essence of the ocean and with great precision assembled watches for the audacious sea explorers and water adventure seekers.
