ASCENT Classic is their modern interpretation of super compressor (SC) style design automatic watch featuring dual crowns with an internal rotating bezel. The history of SC diver watches can be traced back from the late 1950s to the early 1970s. The crown at 4 o’clock is used to wind the movement and set time. The crown at 2 o’clock is used to rotate the internal bezel operates by a little star gear for timing a dive. Unlike typical dive watches, the Ascent has a modern sleek look baring an iconic design with lots of history behind it.
They are also introducing the ASCENT Skull Limited Edition 300. One of the most common symbolic use of the skull design is as a representation of death and mortality. The ASCENT Skull incorporates a menacing skull design with a layered dial exposing its rotating escape wheel, part of the mechanical movement through its mouth. The Ascent Skull serves as a constant reminder that time is precious, one should seize every second in their life and live life to the fullest.
