Ternos Professional GMT BLACK&WHITE Automatic LIMITED EDITION 16157115
DAVOSA brand ambassador Luca Tribondeau has known about DAVOSA watches for quite some time. His parents were fans of the brand before him. Two years ago, he himself fell in love with the Ternos Pro GMT.
DAVOSA gave Luca Tribondeau the opportunity to incorporate his own ideas in realizing an individual version of the popular GMT model of the Ternos Professional. The result is the 500-piece, limited edition Black&White. His ethos: A watch should be at home in any environment and withstand all weather conditions. Luca’s design fulfills these requirements with consummate ease.
At the heart of the Ternos Professional GMT remains the tried and tested Swiss DAV 3032 automatic movement with hour, minute and central second hands, GMT and date display with magnifying lens function at 3 o’clock. It is integrated in a stainless steel case that is 42 mm in diameter and 15.5 mm in height. The striking hands and indices – a triangle at 12 o’clock, rectangles at 9 and 6 o’clock and circles at the full hours – are already familiar from the Ternos Professional, but have received an anthracite plating to highlight them against the white dial. The use of luminescent Super-LumiNova on the hands and numerals ensures optimum functionality even in restricted visibility.
New design elements include a white dial and an instantly discernible, bright orange GMT hand that lets you read the hour in a second-time zone on the surrounding half white, half black ceramic bezel. The watch is topped by a scratch-resistant, anti-reflective sapphire crystal, while the underneath is protected by screw-down, stainless steel back. The case is water-resistant to 20 ATM for risk-free use in and underwater.
At Luca Tribondeau’s request, the watch is supplied with two contrasting straps. As well as a classic stainless steel strap, there is a robust, replacement nylon strap that runs underneath the case.
