A Sailors know it well: when you look up towards the sky, in the middle of the sea, a mystical charm envelops you with amazement and wonder.
Thanks to the sparkling aventurine glass dial and a very hard tungsten bezel, this 200m diving watch with a 42mm case blends tradition and modernity, with the usual taste of Italian design. Image courtesy venezianico.com
Nereide Avventurina, the newest addition to Venezianico's diving watch lineup, captures the beauty of the starry sky and brings it to the wrist of the wearer, thanks to the peculiar material that makes up the dial. It is a dark blue aventurine glass, which stands out for the tiny sparkling inclusions made of copper crystals that spread over its entire surface. Invented by the master craftsmen of Murano in the 17th century almost by chance, by mistakenly pouring copper specks into the molten glass paste, this technique was developed for over 200 years, meanwhile becoming one of the most appreciated of the Venetian glass art. The stellar flashes of the dial perfectly duet with the metallic reflections of the tungsten bezel. This is a material of exceptional resistance, indeed unscratchable, which maintains its brightness unchanged over time. The backside of the 316L surgical steel case features an engraved depiction of the submarine Nereide (launched in Venice in 1913), which refers to the diving vocation of this timepiece. Waterproof up to 200m, it is equipped with a 120-step rotating bezel to monitor immersion times. Nereide Avventurina is accompanied by a new made-in-Italy rubber strap, designed to integrate perfectly into the shape of the case and offer maximum comfort and a sporty look. However, this watch does not shy away from formal and professional occasions, especially when accompanied by the Canova bracelet, which is available as an accessory. Made of steel, its pure and refined neoclassical lines are further enhanced by a double glossy and satin finish. Also, Venezianico has taken good care of the mechanical department: at the heart of this watch is a Swiss-made Sellita SW-200 automatic movement boasting 28,800 vibrations per hour. Nereide Avventurina is among the most complete timepieces made by Venezianico. A synthesis of sportiness and elegance, it blends together all the peculiarities of the Italian brand technical and stylistic research: the homage to the Venetian tradition, the research on modern materials and the attention to design, in order to guarantee the wearer maximum versatility, without compromises.
