We have previously seen the heads of state have cars, aircrafts, and some Russian oligarchs have their homes bomb proof, but there are people crazy enough to want their watches be that way! That’s exactly what the Kavensmann Triggerfish Bronze A2 watch is about with its rugged 44mm wide and 20mm deep casing. Recently, it even underwent the test to withstand 3 km of water depth and then with 10-lbs of C4 explosive which it withstood, except for a few minor scratches. The breakdown of the rugged design is the company patented CuSn8 bronze, along with the crown which features quadruple redundant seals and the strap by Dangerous9. Perhaps it puts the Nixon Trader watch to shame in toughness.
Michael Barahona Fernandez, who owns the Kaventsmann brand, will be carrying on, which has been there has a part of the watchmaking tradition but in Germany. From a horological perspective, it might not be the best known place for the finest watchmakers, but on the engineering front, there are very few places in the world which might match up to what the Germans end up matching to.
Fernandez ensures that each part of this watch is created with the help of machines, individually and to a high level of perfection. Each ring for that matter undergoes a multi-stage polishing treatment to get the particular finish.
The ones who are planning to get themselves this bomb proof piece of horology, ensure you get in the orders fast, as there will be only 30 editions of the Triggerfish Bronze A2 watch ever made. Also, each month, less a handful of the watch will be delivered to its customer. Word also has it, that the first few units are on the way to being delivered later this March.
Too bad they did not quote the price of the Triggerfish Bronze A2 as yet and surprisingly, the German watchmaker doesn't even have a site to reach out!
