Taking its name from the famed diving pioneer Frédéric Dumas who collaborated with Jaques Cousteau on many of the groundbreaking expeditions from the 1940s, 50s, and 60s, this unabashedly vintage timepiece imagines the diver watch as robust angular piece of diving instrumentation. The hexagonal silhouette is obvious yet blends the round unidirectional turning luminous bezel framing the dial opening perfectly. With 30 atmospheres of water resistance, the watch is built for performance under the waves while still offering a nostalgic design reference for even the casual wearer.
A compact dial is carefully designed to offer legibility quickly with an emphasis on the minute hand serving as the crucial gauge of time elapsed underwater. The diamond hour hand design continues the strong lines of the case and further distinguishes it for easy reading.
The Dumas is equipped with a marine grade, corrosion resistant stainless steel diver Milanese mesh bracelet which affords the watch superb wear under water. In addition for ease of practicality out of the water, a water proofed minimal vintage style leather strap is provided along with a strap changing tool, all within the luxurious confines of the matte finished wood box that houses this epic timepiece.
