Nodus Watches Debut - The Trieste

After almost a year in the making, we are proud to unveil our debut piece, the Trieste (pronounced "TREE-EST"). Powered by either the STP 1-11 or Seiko (SII) NH35A, the Trieste comes in three color variations and two case finishes in addition to a date/no-date option. Designed as a dress-diver, it is just as understated and elegant as it is robust and durable. 

We chose to name it after the legendary deep-sea submersible that was made famous in 1960. Here's the story in a nutshell:

On January 23rd, 1960, the bathyscaphe, the Trieste, was the first manned vessel to make it to the deepest part of the Earth's oceans, the Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench. The bathyscaphe (literally translated from "deep ship," in Ancient Greek) reached a record maximum depth of almost 11,000m below sea level. Hydronauts, Don Walsh and Jacques Piccard descended in the Trieste to the bottom of the ocean floor, where they remained for 20 minutes before beginning their ascent. To this day, Walsh and Piccard remain to be the only two people to have ventured to the bottom of the Challenger Deep.


In this blog, we will not only be posting updates about our future projects, but we will also dissect some of the difficulties associated with the watch industry, shed some light on the technicalities of watch making, and share some of our personal stories about this crazy hobby.
