Strom Agonium - Nethuns II Diving Watch

Daniel Strom, Switzerland based independent watchmaker and designer, presents a new diving watch from his Agonium collection. Rated for a water resistance up to 200 meters and named after the Etruscan ocean god, the Nethuns II diving watch evokes both the retro-futurist world of Jules Vernes and the underwater kingdom.
Hand-finished, individually numbered Nethuns II is an authentic diving instrument meeting international water-resistance and safety norms. Its unique construction is based on a sculpted additional outer case fitted over a perfectly watertight case. A sturdy screw-locked crown at 9 o’clock serves to adjust an inner diving bezel, offering a particularly sophisticated solution that prevents any inadvertent handling.
NETHUNS II like every watch in the collection AGONIUM, comprises two cases. The robust and hermetic inner case houses the movement. The outer case brings the artistic dimension and gives free rein to the sculptor's talent. Each one is fashioned by hand, never two the same, with limited editions in each alloy.
A watchmaker, designer and philosopher, Daniel Strom has constantly questioned the past to enlighten the future. Considering time not as a simple measurement, but as a vital energy, he infuses his creations with a symbolic dimension, consistently highlighting the human condition faced with the eternal nature of life.
