Today, we’re making a beeline for Solothurn, Switzerland, the central command of watch brand Favre-Leuba , a dive, activity and apparatus watch subject matter expert. The brand has hushed up for quite a while however was back in the spotlight as of late with an assortment of rough, useful watches, similar to the Bivouac and the Harpoon – watches that honor the rich history of the brand, which was at that point worked in such instrument-like pieces. As of late, Favre-Leuba dispatched another, striking dive watch highlighting a cool, mechanical depth gauge. In our most recent film on MONOCHROME, we’re going to investigate the Favre-Leuba Raider Bathy 120 MemoDepth .
Following an all around enormous assortment of tough and useful watches, for example, the Raider Harpoon or the great Bivouac 9000 , Favre-Leuba presented in 2018 another striking dive watch pressing multi-useful punch and a cool (and uncommon) mechanical depth gauge, the Raider Bathy 120 MemoDepth. The cool factor of this watch comes from the presence of not one but rather two scales to show the depth – the exemplary depth gauge is now an uncommon element in current watchmaking, so this makes this watch much really amazing. The middle hand of the Bathy 120 MemoDepth, coaxial to the hours and minutes, shows the current depth. The 3 o’clock sub-dial records the basic most extreme depth came to (up to 120m) got with a reset pusher at 4 o’clock.
The back of the watch uncovers the system that makes this equipped for showing the depth: the aneroid case. When jumping, depth builds pressure. Each 10 meters (33 ft) of depth adds another bar. As the pressing factor builds, the container contracts. Direct movement is communicated to a stuff system and changed over into a rotational development. This module is created in-house, and dependent on a hand-wound type FL321 dependent on the Eterna Caliber 39 re-designed by Favre-Leuba. An underlying mechanical limiter guarantees that neither the pressing factor film nor the depth gauge is harmed if the wearer dives further than the ideal range.
After making a watch fit for estimating heights even on top of Mount Everest , the Bivouac 9000 , Favre-Leuba proposes another cool, instrument-like watch, depending on a similar innovation, however not for the depths of the seas.
