The satin-finished case of this watch, fashioned from 316L stainless steel, boasts polished details on the lugs and spans a diameter of 42.00mm from 7H to 2H. The case is 16.00mm thick, and the lugs expand 49.50mm in length. Depths of up to 200m or 600ft can be secured by a screw-down crown of the same material. Its sapphire insert allows for compass readings via a bi-directional dual jack-hammer-click rotating bezel. A double-curved sapphire crystal measuring 4.00mm is triple-coated, providing clear legibility.
The Case Back
The Meridian Explorer Europa is a thing of beauty. Exquisitely etched on the back, you'll find a magnificent depiction of the Meridian and zenith star; the artwork panel characteristically reminiscent of 1950s styling. Painstakingly hand-finished, this masterpiece captures the imagination, leaving you spellbound.
The Dial & Hands
Featuring a double-layered 1970's style two-tone gradated colour dial, this watch is elegant and alluring. It features printed hour indexes and rose gold hands with applied 7500 Swiss Super-LumiNova®, affording remarkable clarity even in low light. Additionally, the lower dial section consists of Mu Metal, doubling up as a faraday cage that protects the mechanical movement from magnetic disruptions.
The Strap & Buckle
The Oceania watch comes fitted with a 22.00mm crushed Italian leather black strap with off-white stitching. Additionally, there is a second strap crafted from black Metallocene Butadiene Rubber. Both straps are fitted with a 20.00mm two-tone finished 316L stainless steel VB buckle, meticulously designed to match both options.
Your Presentation Box
The Oceania watch is meticulously presented in a Jules Verne-inspired gold leaf Meridian Explorer book, featuring top-quality Italian crushed leather straps in tobacco, coupled with custom two-tone 316L stainless steel VB buckles. In addition to the leather strap, you'll also receive a sleek black 22.00 mm Metallocene Butadiene Rubber strap with matching custom two-tone VB buckle, a watch tool with spare blades, luxury polishing cloth and a warranty booklet.
