Meccaniche Veneziane – Nereide GMT
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 Swiss Made caliber MV295 is a mechanical movement with automatic winding, 25 Jewels, 28.800 bph, and a power reserve of 40 hours. The MV295 movement, developed from a Landeron 24 base, is a caliber of unquestionable reliability, it has many other functions such as bi-directional winding, hacking seconds and GMT function.
The BK7 Crystal has exceptional physical properties, is lead-free, relatively lighter and of higher quality than other glass crystals. Its properties are: low dispersion (with Abbe numbers around 60), the low refractive index (≈1.52) and high clarity. For these reasons, after a long research and development process, we decided to produce the new inserts with Nereide bezel in this material.
GMT stands for “Greenwich Mean Time” and measures current local time as well as at least one other time-zone. It allows you to be fully connected to distant realities, by displaying an additional time zone on a 24-hour scale on the watch dial and a fourth hand, usually arrow-shaped and colored differently from the normal 12-hour hand.
We have reinterpreted one of the most appreciated bracelets in the world of watchmaking, perfectly adapting shapes and finishes to the Nereide case. We made several tests to obtain a high quality and ergonomic product with a double brushed and polished finish. A perfect fit on the wrist is guaranteed. In fact, this bracelet is equipped with a butterfly clasp which offers an extremely comfortable fit.
We designed and engineered a new exhibition caseback to show the Swiss Made MV295 automatic movement. In particular, the caliber has been decorated with an extremely fine Perlage finish and blue screws. The golden rotor with Côtes de Genève finish is the classic element, present in each of our creations.
