Named for the Cheval Blanc Randheli, a pristine resort on the Noonu Atoll in the Maldives, the OCEANOGRAPHIC 4000 Cheval Blanc Randheli Special Edition features a 48mm titanium case with luminescent indexes in Cheval Blanc Randheli yellow. According to the manufacture, it took 18 months to develop this timepiece, which is able to withstand extreme depths up to 4000 meters. The dial, flange and hands are all treated with SuperLuminovaTM to ensure visibility up to 25cm in the dark. The flange is unidirectional and rack-driven, with a dive time indicator.
In accordance with NIHS standards, this piece also features a minute scale on which the five-minute periods are clearly highlighted. The synthetic sapphire crystal is 6.5mm thick, which ensures watertightness and pressure resistance. The screw-down caseback is in microblasted satin-finished grade 2 titanium, with the Cheval Blanc Randheli signature engraved. The flange crown at 2 o’clock sets the dive time, while a second crown at 4 o’clock is for winding and setting the time and date. It also features a stainless steel helium valve at 10 o’clock, which allows gases that have infiltrated the watch during the descent to safely escape during the ascent. This piece is completed by a white rubber strap with a buckle straps.
The OCEANOGRAPHIC 4000 Cheval Blanc Randheli Special Edition, which will be limited to an edition of just 20 pieces, will be available exclusively at Cheval Blanc Randheli.
