The TIEFENMESSER collection takes its inspiration from the materials that feature so prominently in submarine equipment: the steel of the instruments measuring pressure and depth, and the bronze and brass of a periscope – all of these being the hallmark of what makes these models so unique.
The three TIEFENMESSER models have a white or black dial, a blue steel hand, industrial-style black and blue index markings, aged leather straps and a single aperture for the hour. The power reserve here is displayed in the form of a mechanical gauge with a red or yellow background. These three submersible models are watertight to 50 metres.
THE METALLIC PING OF THE SONAR PULSES IN THE GLACIAL SILENCE…
Immersion is imminent. A submarine quietly folds into the unfathomable depths of the ocean, disappearing without trace from the surface and taking with it a world whose space is enclosed in heat and wetness. The metallic ping of the sonar pulses in the glacial silence, and the smell of the diesel engines saturates the air. The heat is suffocating in the engine compartment, and the noise deafening. Everything on the TIEFENMESSER is about metal, pressure and precision: the piping, the riveted plates and the tubes. In the living quarters, time passes differently for the crew, except for the Captain: monitoring the periscope, he is the only one to have contact with the outside world.
