A notorious watch-making brand, headquartered in Bettlach, a small Swiss village, near Grenchen, Atlantic traces its roots back to the second half of the 19th century, when, in 1888, an ambitious watchmaker, Eduard Kummer, launched his small manufacture, which produced high-quality pocket-watch components.
In a rather short period, his business proved to be a big success, and in the first years of the 20th century, Atlantic extended its area of expertise and production in the new emerging segment of wristwatch manufacturing, where it impressed the watch-collectors worldwide with sophisticated innovative mechanisms and pioneering technologies.
Surely, true watch connoisseur will know that Atlantic patented, over the years, many revolutionary technologies such as the speed-switch system, a mechanism used even today, for changing the date in the automatic movements, and that the brand was actually a pioneer when it comes to the production of self-winding mechanical movement or waterproofing technologies.
Recently, the brand enriched its sophisticated Seaport Watch Collection with another eye-catching model, the superb Atlantic Seaport Chronograph Retrograde Watch, a beautiful new model designed to bring a plus of individuality to any outfit.
A dressy timepiece, the remarkable Atlantic Seaport Chronograph Retrograde Watch features a stylish stainless steel case also available with yellow/ rose gold tone PVD-coating, which demonstrates a nice satin-polished finish and which incorporates a fluted crown and chronograph push pieces, and which confers the advantage of 50-meter water resistance.
The model features a wide range of dial colors- white, grey, black, silver or gold-tone, designed to please the most demanding customers of the brand, and it is nicely completed with applied hour indices, and sharp hours and minutes hands with central luminescent inserts. The watch ensures central hours, minutes and seconds function, date, presented through a small aperture, located at 4 o’clock, and a retrograde chronograph complication.
At the heart of the sophisticated Atlantic Seaport Chronograph Retrograde Watch beats a top-quality, ETA quartz chronograph movement, the G15.261 caliber, which confers a remarkable level of timekeeping accuracy and reliability.
Furthermore, the superb Atlantic Seaport Chronograph Retrograde Watch embraces the wrist with an elegant black or brown, calfskin leather strap and it will be available for an approximate price tag around $1,000.00.
