TRIWA Carbon Chrono

The Carbon Chrono features a case made from PC plastic and the strap from PC rubber. The links contrasting are in matte and shiny black. The chronograph details are a reflective silver which match the numbering around the bezel, while the TRIWA logo proudly adorns the face at 12 o’clock.

The second hand adds some contrast in yellow and the movement inside is all quality with a Seiko VD52 mechanism. For a brand so strongly associated with colour the darker palette really allows the sleek silhouette, simple detailing and stylish constitution to come to the fore.

The Supersonic has bold modern looks and a sleek smoked black hexagonal face.As with most Tokyoflash watches, half the fun is trying to figure out what the time is when you look at it.

The Rolex Deep Sea Special

35,840 feet deep, or about 11,000 meters — is how deep the Rolex Deep Sea Special has been.  That’s the equivalent of almost 7 miles below the surface. In fact it was to the bottom of the deepest part of Ocean — the southern end of the Mariana Trench known simply as “Challenger Deep” — that the watch and two brave souls went, 50 years ago.  It was January 23, 1960, to be precise, and the two brave souls were U.S. Navy LT Don Walsh and Swiss engineer Jacques Piccard.  They piloted TRIESTE, a crude vessel known as a bathyscaph, to the “Challenger Deep” and back.  And they took a very special Rolex with them.  The feat of a human, or a watch, descending to such depths has never been repeated.
 As one of the pre-eminent Rolex dealers on the East Coast (among the many other luxury brands they carry — A. Lange, Hublot, Breguet, et al.), Lijenquist & Beckstead was selected to play host to a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the TRIESTE’s descent aka the “Deepest Dive”.

Specifically, they put on a fine event hosting U.S. Navy LT Don Walsh (co-captain of the TRIESTE) and senior representatives of Rolex USA.
