Delma is a brand that we’ve covered on different events here at MONOCHROME. The watches, often tough and incredible jumping instruments, have end up being top notch and performing while at the same time holding a sensible cost. One of its new models, the Cayman , a cool, open, retro-styled diver’s watch, offers all you require and that’s only the tip of the iceberg. In light of the time-and-date model, the brand adds another variant for voyagers, which holds all its amphibian limits. Meet the Delma Cayman Worldtimer Automatic.
The Cayman is Delma’s passage level offer in the plunge watch assortment – which additionally comprises super safe models like the Blue Shark or the Oceanmaster . In any case, don’t think this is a poor man’s alternative, as this 1970s-motivated watch, with its calm style, present day yet not larger than average measurements, is a truly competent instrument that can oppose to pressure (50 ATM/500m) and is furnished with a Swiss ETA automatic. Accessible in numerous tones, with a pleasantly molded case, it’s accessible for not exactly CHF 1,000. While keeping the general particulars and plan flawless, the brand today presents another advancement, this time combining plunging and voyaging highlights in a single attractive watch.
The hardened steel instance of the Delma Cayman Worldtimer Automatic holds similar extents as the jumping rendition – 42mm distance across and a sensible 13.6mm stature – just as a similar shape, with faceted hauls, scored bezel and larger than average, noticeable crown. The case is for the most part brushed for a toolish look and featured by cleaned slants on the sides. It includes a sapphire precious stone on the two sides yet is water-impervious to 500 metres.
The oddity in this setting comes from the showcase. While named ‘Worldtimer’, the Delma Cayman is to a greater degree a GMT watch with extra capacities on the bezel – not a genuine world-time watch in the feeling of a Patek Philippe, for example. Close to the three old style H-M-S hands is a 24h pointer, which can go about as a day/night marker or as a subsequent time region, as it very well may be changed freely and focuses to a 24h track on the internal spine. Connected to this, and supplanting the exemplary hour long plunging scale, the bezel includes another aluminum embed printed with the 24 reference urban communities. Being bidirectional, it shows the time all around the globe initially – as long as you probably are aware the time in one reference city, the rest will follow.
The Delma Cayman Worldtimer Automatic offers a similar applied files and hands as the diver’s form and is accessible in a few shading combinations: dark with blue accents, blue with dark accents and silver with beat up accents. it is accessible either on a smooth leather lash (dark or blue) or on a hardened steel ‘Milanese’ wristband with collapsing clasp.
To power the Cayman Worldtimer, Delma depends on the attempted and-tried ETA 2893, the GMT variant of the automatic ETA 2982. This development runs at 4Hz and amasses to 50 hours of force hold – it appears to be that most ETA developments have as of late been refreshed with a more drawn out force reserve.
The Delma Cayman Worldtimer Automatic will be evaluated at CHF 1,990 or EUR 2,050 on a leather tie and at CHF 2,090 or EUR 2,150 on a steel arm band. Note that a quartz rendition will likewise be accessible, with a lower water-opposition (200m) and a marginally more slender case. Both will be accessible from the brand’s webshop here .
