It is all about exploring the depths of our ocean, the blue planet, and diverse bodies of water at the house of Delma. The house of fine Swiss watchmaking has been specialized in diving watches for over 50 years now and this year introduced its vintage-inspired Cayman Worldtimer. The house introduced its 70s inspired Cayman Collection in 2019 and this new model retains the aesthetic and technical qualities of the Cayman collection with the addition of a world timer functionality. The timepiece is dedicated to the adventurers who endeavor to discover the wonder of the blue planet above and below the surface from the turquoise waters of the Caribbean to the pristine lakes of Switzerland. The Cayman Worldtimer celebrates water in all latitudes.
Twenty-four reference cities, one for each time zone, complement the polished sunray-brushed dial in nautical black abyss, deep blue and lustrous silver. Luminescent hands and indexes accompany a distinctive triangular 24-hour hand to indicate multiple time zones relevant to the wearer. The watch is outfitted with a Milanese stainless steel bracelet or a leather strap with eye-catching contrasting sticking. The watch with its stainless steel case is available in an automatic version, water resistant to 1,650 feet, or a quartz version, water resistant to 660 feet. The watch comes in a blue Delma designed leather box. Founded in Lengnau, Switzerland in 1924, Delma is an independent family-owned watch brand specialized in the design and manufacture of sports watches.
« We expanded the Cayman collection with explorers of our multi-faceted aquatic world in mind. With so much still to be discovered, the earth’s varied waterways are crucial to understanding and appreciating our planet. The new Cayman’s world timer functionality enables the wearer to be connected no matter where their exploration may take them, » explains Andreas Leibundgut the head of marketing at Delma.
The Cayman Islands in the Caribbean are a haven for diving and scuba diving and with its hundreds of fish species, scores of reefs and welcoming dive centers, the islands are regularly awarded accolades by divers.
