TRIESTE Watches carries on this wondrous tale of human accomplishment by offering exclusive edition timepieces dedicated to the memory of the watches that were aboard the bathyscaphe Trieste during its ultimate mission.
Inspired by a story of courage and determination to explore the deepest known part of the Earth’s ocean, TRIESTE Watches has created the TRIESTE Deep Sea Collection. In owning a TRIESTE Deep Sea watch, one becomes an ambassador of this adventure.
TRIESTE Deep Sea design is inspired by the minimalist style of the watches on board of the bathyscaphe TRIESTE. In January 1960, man achieved an incredible feat when the deep-sea submersible, the bathyscaphe Trieste, reached the bottom of the Challenger Deep, in the Pacific Ocean’s Mariana Trench. An underwater vehicle designed in Switzerland and built in Italy, the bathyscaphe Trieste is, to this day, the only manned submersible to have ever reached 10,916 metres below sea level.
Accompanying Jacques Piccard and Lt. Don Walsh on their TRIESTE dive were three Swiss Made watch brands, ultimately tying watchmaking with deep-sea exploration to this day. Movado provided a chronometer to record the time, while Longines offered up two stopwatches, which were used inside the bathyscaphe’s pressure sphere to time the activation of the two ballast tanks.
Today, water resistance is a fundamental feature of well-designed timepieces, making them more reliable and ensuring constant wearability, while premier divers watches — which offer water resistance to 300 metres or 30 bar, as our collection does — are an essential part of the watch aficionado’s collection.
