A Timepiece of Historical Significance
Kursk timepiece pays tribute to the soldiers who fought and died in the epic tank battle of Kursk that took place in July and August of 1943. The Kursk Collection features a bold design that reflects the strength and determination of the soldiers who fought on both sides of the conflict.
The hands of the watch are shaped like tank barrels, symbolizing the armored vehicles that played a crucial role in the battle. The Kursk timepiece took its design cues from the vintage military submarine and present a contemporary take on historical military watch configurations. The 200m dive timepiece comes housed in a distinctive bronze case that gives it corrosion-resistant properties. Using bronze as a building material is a stand-out feature as the alloy has a unique quality of developing a patina over time, losing its initial shine and taking on a more distinguished character. Available in three dial colours—military green, deep blue, and dark grey, each with matching leather straps. The Bronze Dive has a formidable utilitarian look with a central three-hand timekeeping system, a date window at three o’clock, luminous numerals that glow in the dark which resembles the control deck of the submarine. The timepiece also features a transparent caseback which gives a great insight into the twenty one jewel movement of the watch which resembles the submarine window.
The Kursk Collection is a timepiece of historical significance, a tribute to the soldiers who fought and died in one of the most important battles of World War II. With its bold design and powerful symbolism, it is a watch that will inspire and impress, a testament to the courage and resilience of the human spirit.
