Meccaniche Veneziane Nereide Ardesia (Swiss Made)
These elegant Swiss Made dive watches are manufactured in Switzerland and come in a variety of rich colors to choose from that include classic options for black bezels, ruby red bezels, silver-colored cases, and black PVD cases. In addition to these three hand plus date Meccaniche Veneziane Nereides, we also sell the four hander Meccaniche Veneziane Nereide GMT, which features a second or third time zone with an additional 24 hour hand.
Each Meccaniche Veneziane Nereide watch comes with vintage leather straps, handmade in Italy, plus silicone dive straps, in a beautifully presented natural walnut presentation box that is also hand-crafted in Italy. We also offer the official Meccaniche Veneziane solid link Jubilee bracelet, which we recommend for customers buying Neriedes with brushed case finishes.
Why We Love This Watch
Italian flair and rich colors meets Swiss Made engineering sounds like a perfect match to us, with some classic dive watch styling inspired by more famous timepieces from Rolex and others, but with Meccaniche Veneziane's unique touch. Specification-wise too, the 200 meter water rating, with Swiss Super-Luminova lume shown in a scratch resistant domed sapphire crystal case, speaks to a robust design.
The hand-crafted leather straps and their stitching are also very integral to the overall look of these timepieces, with perfectly matched rich color options that are very well done. Looks-wise, this attention to detail is carried over with diamond-cut hands and indices, and a generous helping of C1 lume on the hands, applied indices, and bezel pip.
Last but not least, the exhibition display back features a gold-colored solid brass custom rotor, perlage, blued screws and Côtes de Genève decorations.
