Modeled after the vintage depth gauges used by frogmen in underwater operations during the 1940s, Gruppo Gamma has created the Nexus using a clever application of an elusive 'wandering hour' complication - resulting in one of the most iconic timepieces in its genre.
The Nexus features a 316L stainless steel case with options for going back in time with the case made from aged steel or Damascus steel. It has a sapphire exhibition window caseback with a push-pull crown at 6 o'clock and is water resistant to 100 meters or 10 atmos.
The scratch-resistant flat vintage top hat shaped sapphire crystal with underside anti-reflective coating protects the amazing multi-layer sandwich dial with a black hour disc and markers filled with Swiss Super-LumiNova. The gold color minute hand is also filled with Swiss Super-LumiNova.
The Nexus is powered by the reliable workhorse movement 8N24 made by Miyota. It is a skeletonised movement with customized module, automatic uni-directional winding, 21600 bph, 42 hour power reserve, and signature rotor.
A very comfortable premium vegetable tanned leather strap is supplied with the watch in addition to a travel pouch and screwdriver for strap changing.
The Nexus offers unconventional time reading with depth gauge inspiration while still retaining Gruppo Gamma's signature tool watch design cues. A watch that definitely stands out from the crowd and is a future classic!
