Vaultcase MARK IV
The GENTIAN Vaultcase timepiece has a 40mm case of 316L polished stainless steel. The case is designed to be highly durable in it’s architecture using natural curvatures to ensure proper structure. The machining process is refined through CNC routing and complex high-end hand finishing to create the main steel components. The arched vault-like forms visible in the case ensure a remarkable and unique aesthetic finish which takes advantage of the natural reflections to create its unique form. The tightly sealed screw-down crown ensure proper water resistance of 100 metres.
The screw-in back has mineral glass crystal window, enabling the movement and brushed gold plated rotor to be admired. On the back of the case are engraved the sequential number of the timepiece, the case material, logo, case name, country of fabrication, and maximum depth of use.
The dial is built from the same 316L steel in 'Obsidian Black' that the case is, and finely brushed in a radial pattern to create the unique “sunburst” effect. The appled indicies and the date window are also manufactured with steel, and fitted to the dial surface by hand. The Dauphne hour and minute hands are made of tempered steel, carefully sculpted to reflect light from all angles to improve time legibility. The originality of the MARK IV is the very distinct 'Khaleeji Dial' (click to learn more).
