If you’re in the market for a timepiece that can withstand almost anything, you can stop your search. Watchmaker Michael Barahon Fernandez has tested his latest design to the limit. The Kaventsmann Triggerfish Bronze A2 has been pressure tested for 3,000 meters and it’s been blown up with 10 pounds of C4. Like you do.
The only effect the explosion had was to crack the crystal. It just kept ticking. Wow. It’s not surprising though considering the time and care Fernandez puts into machining the parts one at a time. He only plans to make 30 of this particular model and if you need it, get on the waiting list now.
The first five units will ship this month at around $2000 each.
