BASELNEWS 2010Equipped to perform: Atlantic Blackshark
This automatic watch has a resolutely aquatic design and takes its name from the powerful marine animal, whose teeth appear integrated in the centre of the solid 316 L steel bracelet. Objective: determination, agility and force. A tough watch, the Atlantic Blackshark is the proud heir of the Seashark line and offers an ultimate guarantee of precision, which all men of action are entitled to expect. Equipped with the ETA 2824-2 Swiss Made automatic movement with 25 rubies, well-known for its reliability and robustness, the Blackshark is the perfect partner, to be counted on in all winds and weathers.
See-through case back, screw-down crown for water-resistance, double thickness anti- reflection sapphire crystal, curved to resist pressure, hypoallergenic PVD anti-corrosion treatment on the case and bracelet, luminous Superluminova indexes and rotating bezel with 60-min scale for use by divers at depth, nothing has been left to chance.
A reflection of the expectations of the high seas, the deep black dial has finely traced waves, accentuated by the 4 "aerofoil links" of the steel bracelet, which is equipped with a double closure system. Safety first! This explains the extremely clear legibility of the dial with the date at five o’clock. An effect further accentuated by the deliberate choice of the size of the hands, including a particularly striking sweep seconds hand.
A second version of the Blackshark accentuates the impression of contrast and depth of the bezel, through the choice of white for the tachymeter markings. Or if preferred, matching tones further increase the contrast between the bezel and completely white dial. Quite clearly, the contemporary design still retains references to the illustrious heritage of Atlantic’s maritime collections, which all collectors of the Lengnau Brand will certainly recognize. These new models will certainly attract attention too; in true Blackshark tradition!
