2012/05/10 - UTS Watches the new 4000M Professionnal GMT Dive

Eight Years ago German Mechanical Engineer Nicolaus Spinner set the bar in the world of Deep Divers watches. 3,000M below the surface to be exact, at the time an unusual depth rating that few mechanical watches could come close to achieving….

Today the tradition continues with our newest Deep Divers Watch. The UTS 4,000M Professional GMT Diver. Of course to achieve such an extreme depth, more than just a thick sapphire crystal was required! The unique construction of the German made stainless steel UTS watch case includes a stainless steel plate that holds the 6MM Thick sapphire crystal in place. No Helium Escape Valve is required in the design of the UTS 4,000M GMT. The proprietary design of the bidirectional rotating bezel locks by a unique ceramic ball bearing system. The new 4,000M GMT Professional Diver features an in-house made 45mm watch case fabricated from a solid block of German stainless steel in UTS Munchen’s own workshop by Nicolaus Spinner. No stamping or molds are used to fabricate a UTS Case. Further, Herr. Spinner personally assembles, finishes and tests each watch. The trademark lug design and the solid case back are affixed by hex screws and industrial grade seals.

The massive 45MM solid surgical grade stainless steel case with 6MM thick A/R coated sapphire crystal is extreme yet elegant. The UTS 4000M Diver has no equal. With a divers watch bezel affixed by screws locks by a ceramic ball bearing mechanism at 2′Oclock. A screw down crown is located at 3′Oclock; And because extreme depths require extreme engineering, the 6MM thick sapphire crystal is not only glued into the case it is held in by a massive stainless steel ring further affixed by 7 additional hex screws. Black dial with applied SuperLuminova markers and hands. Like all UTS Watches our in-house made case is built on premises in Germany. The ETA 2893-2 Swiss Automatic movement provides an independent 4th hand for displaying either GMT or a second timezone… also available in standard one timezone
