A very Limited Edition watch, only 5 have been made and available Worldwide, each individually numbered, watch, boxes, pouch and leather strap.
Watch has been hand made and hand finished with a Cera coating. The beating heart of this instant classic is a ETA 2892, recognised as one of the most popular and reliable movements to use in modern watchmaking.
This is the first release from Enzo Mechana in partnership with WatchObsession, bringing Enzo back and available for the mainstream watch collector, we will bring Limited Edition pieces such as the Mare Nero, and Production Models on a regular basis.
The complete package we have put together is awesome, and you would be hard pressed to find a watch being accompanied with such a package as we have put together.
The watch itself is awesome and whilst a large watch, in watch terms, it is smaller than a lot of the bespoke models Enzo normally puts his hands to and is more than comfortable for day to day wear.
Where do we start with the rest of the package ?
The watch comes with two straps, firstly, a Diaboliq Vintage Military strap, made by hand with leather from the 60's and a true work of art, the attention to detail is perfect, each strap is individually laser etched, hand distressed, waxed and oiled for added flexibility and water repellency. The second strap is an ISOfrane rubber dive strap, perfect for switching out the Diaboliq if you intend using the watch in the water. Today's ISOfrane dive strap bears the same design as the original ISOfrane dive strap of the 1960s. ISOfrane was standard equipment for several iconic dive watches of the era and suits the Mare Nero perfectly, you can't go wrong with either strap.
The watch comes inside a handmade "Mare Nero" Nautical Wooden watch box with an individually numbered brass plaque. These cases were commissioned by, and exclusively made for Enzo Mechana specifically for the Mare Nero project by Timemachinist. These truly nautical cases were created by a shipwright, in a working boatyard out of solid American Black Walnut hardwood. They feature a real bronze porthole to view the watch through and are fastened together with all commercial grade marine hardware. The boxes are basically built like little boats that were designed to safely transport a watch to anywhere in the world. Only five of these cases were created and no two are exactly alike. The weight on these is "heavy" so be careful.
We have a handmade leather Chiton Pouch to carry the watch in if not on the wrist, with Limited Edition numbered patch.
The outer box is made from Black Perspex here in the UK by our go-to man, "Laser Nick" as we call him, of Artisans.co.uk These boxes have been put together by hand and are individually made to suit the package we presented to Nick, gave him free reign in design and execution and he has not failed. The side of the box lid has the wave motif cut out and is a clever little design feature and adds to the personal touches we have included within this package.
