Viqueria Calipso Diver on Pre-Order

Italian brand Viqueria has a new dive watch on pre-order, which has a decent spec for the money. Getting 300m of resistance for under £500 isn’t easy these days, but at 199 euros, this is a true bargain.

There is a choice of dial colours and we like the steel bracelet option too. Here’s the word from Viqueria;

The Viqueria Calipso is built to withstand a depth of 300 meters but it’s also thought with such proportions and vintage contemporary design to stay on your wrist far beyond its main aquatic purpose. The balanced proportions of its 42mm case guarantee comfort on the wrist, even for the smaller ones.

The Calipso features a unidirectional rotating bezel as well as a screwed in caseback and crown. It also offers great legibility thanks to thick layers of C3 and BGW9 SuperLume applied on markers, hands and bezel insert.

  • Rotating Bezel: The Calipso features an unidirectional bezel made from a thick piece of aluminum and is crafted with a double finish, black and brushed. The bezel not only allows you to calculate diving time or any other activity up to 60 minutes, it also gives you the time in a second time zone;
  • Pearlescent Dials: Designed with a unique grained texture, the dial features a “variable light absorbing” pearlescent finishing that enhance the iridescence of the Chameleon Brown and Moon Black dials;
  • Super Mirror Polishing: A Viqueria’s first time, this technology is employed to finish polished parts of the case and the bracelet to create a mirror-like surface. It gives perfectly smooth surface that appears a stark black from certain angles. The SMP differs from “Zaratsu” polishing because it can be done on curved surfaces.
  • Pre-order deals run until 8th July by the way.
