Dievas Voyageur GMT

 

The new Dievas Voyageur GMT is made of the firms proprietary 6Steel. 

 

This hardening process was developed by Dievas in collaboration with our German specialized high tech metallurgy partner. First, our premium 316L CNC watch case is heated in a mixture of carbon gases at precised low temperature to allow diffusion of atoms. This intricate process is duplicated repeatedly over long hours to superimpose supersaturation and concentration of carbon. The sudden immense energy from carbon atoms accumulation results in 30µm layered hardening of the case to 1300 Hv on the Vickers scale(6 times the orignal hardness of normal stainless steel). The toughened case is then put through a vacuum chamber for plasma coating to elevate the corrosion resistance, particularly against sea water and sweat. This multi layering process makes the 6Steel case an ideal candidate for use in sports and diving watches.

A total of no less than 35 hours is spent making every case. 

Specifications

45mm case, with AR-coated sapphire crystal. Water resistance to 100 meters. Lug width is 24mm.

Movement is the Swiss automatic ETA caliber 2893-2, in Top Grade finish with GMT complications. It features Cotes de Geneva finish on the rotor and plates, Incabloc antishock system, rhodium plating, and a Glycodor balance. Power reserve is 42 hours.
