Di Bacarri recently launched its first ever diamond diver "Hercules Diamond" collection. We don't usually see diamonds and divers together but this professional diving watch boasts two genuine diamonds at the 9 o'clock hour marker.
As we have come to expect from Di Bacarri this limited edition timepiece (only 999 made) is a seamless marriage of Swiss engineering and Italian design. A sleek and elegant exterior encases a 25 jewel ETA 2824 automatic caliber movement with 316L stainless steel and a sapphire crystal. Together with a quickset date and water resistance of 50 ATM this is one of the most powerful professional diving watches on the market.
Of particular interest is the helium release valve. As professional divers will know, when divers operate at great depths they often spend prolonged hours under pressure breathing a gas mix that contains helium or hydrogen. Since helium atoms are the smallest natural gas particles found in nature, these gas atoms are able to work their way inside the watch, around any o-rings or other seals the watch may feature. This is not a problem as long as the divers stay under pressure, but during resurfacing a pressure difference builds up between the trapped gases inside the watch case and its environment. This effect can cause damage to the watch, such as causing the crystal to pop off, hence Di Bacarri's decided to prevent this with a gas release valve. Available at the guaranteed lowest price, this is a high quality professional piece at an incredibly accessible price.
