Part of the Agonium collection, the Swiss watchmaker plunges to the depths to capture the mythical properties of water in its latest timepiece.
If you ask Daniel Strom what his true calling is, he might say watchmaking. He might equally say designing or even philosophy. The latter is especially evident when drawing inspiration for his latest timepiece, the Agonium Nethuns II diving watch.
The mythical properties of water are what inspired Daniel’s design here. In a state of perpetual motion, it flows from springs to streams and from rivers to oceans before returning to the sky and being reborn as rain.
Philosophy aside, this nautical-inspired model is really like something straight out of the wildest dreams a steam-punk lover.
Each watch is hand-crafted, meaning that no two models are exactly alike. And to add to the authenticity, the series is individually numbered, all meaning that the watch will be highly collectable.
Like every watch from the Agonium collection, the Nethuns II is made of two cases. The hermetic inner case houses the movement, and helps provide up to 200m water protection. The outer case is where the brand’s artistic expression comes in, looking more like a sculpture than a typical watch case.
The outer case comes in either gold, silver, bronze, palladium or even platinum. The brand is known for its ability to highly customize it’s watches for customers, and the only limit here is the wallet. Prices start at 9,999 Swiss francs.
