Meccaniche Veneziane Arsenale Adriatico
Our Adriatico Bracelet
For the bracelet of the Arsenale model we decided to use a classic from the world of diving. The Adriatico bracelet is made up of a plurality of steel links which are intertwined to form a resistant structure which is at the same time light and extremely comfortable. The bracelet is equipped with a solid clasp which makes the watch practical to use in any situation.
The Arsenale model is equipped with a 316L stainless steel bezel on which dots are embedded. The bezel not only gives a strong personality to the watch but it also has a practical function. In fact, by turning it counterclockwise, you can monitor the dive time.
Arsenale is a watch made unique thanks to many details combined in an iconic design: the characteristic tapissierie dial, a three-dimensional logo applied with the Meccaniche Veneziane cross, 316L satin steel inserts applied on the rotating bezel, ingot indexes containing BGW9 Swiss Super-LumiNova® and much more.
Swiss Super-LumiNova® BGW9 is a phosphorescent pigment, otherwise known as Lume, emits a Blue-Green glow in the dark (as the name suggest) when properly charged by either sunlight or artificial light. In a daylight condition, BGW9 is white in color.
Compared to the much more widespread C1 pigment, the BGW9 has a relative brightness more than triple, making it the most widespread solution in the haute horlogerie.
The Venetian Arsenal (Italian: Arsenale di Venezia) is a complex of former shipyards and armories clustered together in the city of Venice in northern Italy. Owned by the state, the Arsenal was responsible for the bulk of the Venetian republic’s naval power during the middle part of the second millennium AD. It was “one of the earliest large-scale industrial enterprises in history”.
