The last watches in the TCM collection takes us into the depths of the sea. The watches in the Mare, or Sea collection, beam with historical significance and unparalleled design.
The Tazzoli and Tazzoli Oceanico: two watches that pay homage to the Italian built submarine the Tazzoli, under the command of Carlo Fecia di Cossato. The design of the Tazzoli Oceanico endeavored to replicate every single detail of the submarine’s history, starting with the patented inclinometer on the back case: an inclinometer is used to gauge the slant of the hull during the submarines’ immersion. The crown is positioned at two o’clock and is in the shape of a torpedo. Staying faithful to design the dial is well appointed with internal (24 hour) and external (12 hour) marking true to the old equipment used by officers of the Tazzoli submarine. Besides the coloring of the dial, the inclinaometer on the back case of the Tazzoli uses a different measuring scale than the Tazzoli Oceanico. Both of these watches are limited edition pieces (88), making it ideal for collectors.
The last watch in the TCM collection is the Artiglio. The Artiglio is named after a steamer and it successor the Artiglio II. The Artiglio along with an experienced crew of Italian divers, were responsible for some of the most important relic marine recoveries in the 1920’s and 1930’s. The watch is equipped with a manual helium escape valve, a valuable instrument for divers who descend to great depths. This watch is designed to with stand pressure at 100 ATM’s or 1000 meters.
