Dial and Bezel Crafted from Forged Carbon
Forged carbon stands as an innovative material with compelling technical attributes, derived from a blend of carbon fibers immersed in resin and subjected to high pressure and temperature. The fibers scatter light in various directions, creating a captivating visual effect that breathes life into both the dial and bezel.
Revamped Case Design
The fresh 42mm case, forged from 316L stainless steel, preserves the iconic Nereide aesthetic while introducing new intricacies. Notable among them are the beveled edges with a contrasting polished finish, elevating the case’s allure and complexity. PVD plating imparts a stunning gunmetal hue to the case, seamlessly complementing other elements crafted from forged carbon.
A Robust and Athletic Persona

Paired with a novel rubber strap that seamlessly conforms to the case’s contours, this timepiece combines flexibility and stretchiness for exceptional wrist comfort, all while ensuring remarkable durability against abrasion and extreme temperatures ranging from -30°C to +70°C.
Engraved Tribute on the Caseback
The intricate engraving on the caseback pays homage to the Nereide submarine, an emblem of a pioneering era. Launched in Venice in 1913, these vessels embarked on daring explorations into the ocean’s depths—an ambitious and perilous frontier that marked a new era of the unexplored.
