CHALLENGER DEEP RED

Colorful coral reefs in tropical waters

In the realm of sports watches, Emile Chouriet’s Challenger collection stands out by deftly combining performance with a touch of whimsical elegance. The latest addition to the collection, the Challenger Deep with red dial, is no exception.

Recalling the vividly colorful coral reefs in tropical waters, the new version of the Challenger Deep is as eye-catchingly stylish as it is reliably robust. Endowed with a metallic sunray-pattern gradient red dial that darkens towards the edges, like the vanishing light at the depths of the ocean. Providing effortless legibility even in the darkest conditions, its “syringe” shaped hands are filled with SuperLuminova, and the indexes on the dial are made entirely of the same luminescent pigment, emitting a bright green glow.

The new Challenger Deep adds a striking variant to the line while remaining emblematic of Emile Chouriet’s sports watch collection. Its stainless steel case, measuring 42.5mm in diameter, features the brand’s signature double wing-shaped lugs for a touch of contemporary elegance. The case is topped with a domed sapphire crystal, while a screw-down crown guarantees the watch a water- resistance of 300 meters. Protected by crown-guards on either side, the crown recalls the hue of the dial and the tip of the seconds hand, with a red ring around its circumference

As a capable diver’s watch, the Challenger Deep Red features a rotating bezel, crafted from steel with a black engraved ceramic insert, which is highly resistant to wear, temperature and changing pressures.

Behind the solid steel case back, emblazoned with a large engraving depicting a fouled anchor, beats the automatic Calibre EC9316 (based on an ETA 2824), with a bi-directional winding system that delivers a power reserve of 42 hours when fully wound.

And finally for the ultimate in comfort and style in and out of the water, the Challenger Deep comes on a rubber strap with steel folding clasp. A stainless-steel bracelet option is also available.
