Introducing the new NIVREL Deep Ocean GMT

"One for all time" – is the motto of the campaign around the new NIVREL Deep Ocean GMT. And that’s because the new watch from NIVREL’s Deep Ocean series extends the range of the popular diving watch to a model with a second and third time zone indication. The distinctive design of the Deep Ocean is maintained by using the same dark face, large Arabic numerals, silver-coloured Appliqués, and the luminescent sword hands as before. However, a red hand with an arrow-shaped tip as well as a 24-hour display on the bezel provide for a completely new design accent!

GMT = Multiple Time Zones

The abbreviation GMT stands for the term "Greenwich Mean Time". It is named after the southern England town Greenwich that marks the prime meridian of the World Time system. The earth is divided into 24 time zones, and time displays always refer to the Greenwich Mean Time. New York City, for example, belongs to the time zone GMT -5, Germany and most of Europe belong to time zone GMT +1.

In the world of watches, the GMT acronym usually refers to the ability of visually indicating multiple time zones simultaneously. This fact also applies to NIVREL’s new reference N 146.001: the Deep Ocean GMT. The functional addition is realized by using a movement of calibre ETA 2836-2, in a modified version for GMT indication. A possible second time zone is set using the crown and it is indicated by a hand with a red arrow pointer. With a power reserve of 40 hours, the watch additionally provides the indication of hours, minutes, sweep second with stop-seconds function, date with rapid setting.

As for the characteristics of the case, NIVREL picks up the same pattern known from the first Deep Ocean models. The corpus is made of stainless steel 316L and provides a water resistance up to 50 bar, which is supported by the use of a screwed crown with crown protection. The bezel is adjustable counter-clockwise with a 120 click-adjustment. It also has a black aluminium inlay with silver printed 24-hour indication for setting a possible third time zone. The diameter of the watch is 43 mm with a height of 13 mm. The sapphire crystal of the case is fitted out with a magnifying glass for the date.

The watch comes with a steel strap featuring a deployment buckle with flip-lock system and a fold-out extension for carrying the watch on the diving suit. In addition, NIVREL delivers the watch with an extra silicone strap with case integration and NIVREL signature buckle. In order to change the strap, a spring bar tool is included in the package as well.
