Delma Shell Star
The Delma Shell Star Automatic is one of the brand’s most iconic models and is a true dive watch. An ideal companion, it is equal to the toughest challenges, whether on the open seas, under water, on a mountaintop or on any other adventure. The new edition of this timeless stainless steel watch from Delma again demonstrates the traditional Swiss watch brand’s mastery.
In 1975 Delma launched its first professio- nal dive watch, the Delma Shell Star, which proved to be a landmark for the company, extending its legacy of underwater time- pieces. The new Shell Star retains the dis- tinctively sporty appearance and is now equipped with a helium valve and a rugged stainless leather strap. Its automatic mo- vement delivers flawless performance in the harshest conditions as it is powered so- lely by the activity of its wearer. The 42-hour power reserve guarantees that the watch will continue to run even on its day off.
Dive watches: also ideal out of the water
Dive watches are the most robust products in the horological world. Not only are they water-resistant, but they are also built to withstand challenging environments. Their steel cases must endure the water pressu- re that increases with every foot a diver de- scends, and they have to resist mechanical shocks without leaking. Thus a dive watch is the ideal companion for almost any sport. The watch can handle all the obstacles – in- cluding water, extreme heat or cold shocks – that its wearer might encounter.
Precise craftsmanship, timeless design
Despite the exacting technical requirements, Delma’s engineers were able to equip the watch with a transparent case back that allows a clear view of the beautifully decorated automatic movement. The brand has al- ways stood for precision and craftsmanship. Its watches are there for their wearers when the going gets tough and they always make a bold impression.
Since Delma Watch Ltd. was founded by Adolf and Albert Gilomen in Lengnau, Swit- zerland, it has launched a number of horo- logical landmarks to great acclaim from the public and watchmaking experts. For more than 90 years, the brand’s symbiosis of tra- ditional Swiss craftsmanship with contem- porary design has attracted quality-awa- re and value-conscious men and women around the globe. The pursuit of perfection and the chance to enhance watchmaking history remain the foundations upon which Delma is building its future.
The unidirectional rotating bezel with its clearly legible color-coded minute indexing in anodized aluminum is a great aid for timing short actions. The watch’s imposing 44mm case gives it the character of an instrument and makes it highly legible in any lighting conditions, including underwater.
