You may look at this watch and think why is the crown at 12? Well, this design is based on a 1960s wristwatch. And let me tell you, it is a very comfortable design.
This is a Triton with black dial on steel bracelet. The watch can also be had with other straps. Please ask about it.
This watch is based on a 1960s design of the socalled “Triton Spirotechnique” which had the crown at the 12 o’clock position as well. The vintage originall Triton had a smaller 37mm case while the new watch has a 40mm steel case.
The vintage original watch was more expensive in the 1960s than a Rolex Submariner and were serious diving tool watches waterresistant to 500 meters while the Rolex Submariner was “only” waterresistent to 200 meters. Not that any human wold ever go down that deep to begin with…
The “Spirotechnique” came to market in 1963 and was supposedly worn by the famous marine scientist and diver JJ Cousteau. While the vintage watch has an automatic ETA caliber, the modern watch now comes with an automatic Soprod caliber.
Triton was the son of Poseidon. The new name “Subphotique” is used due to the legal ownership of the name “Spirotechnique” by a company called “Auricoste”.
