CLERC Watches


Location icon Switzerland

Founded in 1874 and based in Geneva, Switzerland, CLERC manufactures powerful luxury “exploration machines” designed for extreme underwater conditions.

But on land and in everyday life, discerning luxury watch lovers expect comfort, elegance, style, and prestige. So we said, why not have both? And set out to create a new breed of luxury watches called Hydroscaph. They combines raw power with pure luxury in a distinctly identifiable timepiece. .

First dive: Dodging jellyfish in a personal submarine off the Canadian coast

Walking into Sub Aviator Systems' workshop in Vancouver, Canada made me feel a bit like James Bond strolling into MI6's Q Branch for the first time. Submersibles and deep diving suits were scattered around the warehouse, and smack dab in the middle sat the Super Aviator - the world's first "personal luxury submarine."

Flying A Submarine With Clerc Watches

Clerc strengthened its presence in the submarine world through an association with Sub Aviators Systems - SAS -, the first company able to produce and sell personal submarines that literally fly under the surface. To celebrate this union, the brand invited a few journalists and bloggers to pilot by themselves the Super Aviator in the bay of Vancouver, Canada.

Piloting a Super Aviator Personal Submersible

by Steph Yin Today-after a storied past involving crafts shaped like bells, powered by oars, equipped with flame-throwers, and designed after whale bodies-there's a new sub in town, and it's unlike any of its ancestors. Orcasub is a one-of-a-kind, personal luxury submersible-available to anyone who longs to freely roam thousands of feet under the ocean's surface and can afford a $2 million-and-up price tag.

The watch offers sweep second and date, and has super-strong SuperLuminova luminescent markers and hands. The watch was first introduced back in 2013 and was designed to combine power and functionality - and it does so in an impressive package.

Закончены испытания подводной лодки с крыльями

Американская компания Sub Aviator Systems летом этого года завершила цикл испытаний своей новой мини-подлодки Super Aviator, предназначенной для плавания на глубине до 1800 метров. Двухместный аппарат сильно отличается от существующих аналогов: две пары крыльев и общая компоновка визуально делают его более похожим на самолет, чем на подлодку.

Off the Cuff: Close Up with the Clerc Hydroscaph H1

Recently I wore a watch I never really thought I would wear. I was testing out the Clerc Hydroscaph H1 C.O.S.C certified automatic chronometer. One of the reasons I never thought I would wear this watch is because it is a brute of a timepiece.

CLERC Watches in ten cool pictures

When it comes to diving watches, Clerc is one of those Swiss brands that is not afraid to explore new paths instead of overly relying on their archives. I'm a big fan of their charismatic design, their trademark bezel, the innovative C-CLIP mechanism that would rotate it, and the overall masculine look of their watches.

Review: Clerc Hydroscaph Chronograph - Gear Patrol

When one thinks of a dive watch, the image that usually comes to mind is that of a round steel case, rotating bezel and a black dial with three prominent hands. This conception is based on certain archetypal timepieces that have woven their way into our collective horological unconscious - a Blancpain Fifty Fathoms or Rolex Submariner.
