The Blue Shark IV transcends its superb predecessors with an unimaginable water resistance to 5000 meters. This impeccable divers’ watch incites curiosity and exudes strength. As the fourth iteration of DELMA’s renowned deep-sea diver, it embraces the coveted Blue Shark design while integrating elevated durability and subtle enhancements.
At 3000-6000 meters below the surface, the abyssal zone is a lightless area of immense pressure and chilling temperatures. The unique creatures that reside in these depths have evolved to survive in this harsh environment. Unusual characteristics such as transparency and bioluminescence enable them to thrive. Likewise, DELMA’s Blue Sharks have become increasingly resilient and distinctive through years of refinement and advancement.
DELMA’s first Blue Shark was launched in 2011 with a clear mission: to be prepared for deep sea exploration, capable of performing at practically inaccessible depths. With water resistance to 3000 meters, it was to serve as the foundation for a family of Blue Sharks each with their own distinctive characteristics. The future generations would not only dive deeper, limited-editions also introduced a philanthropic component. The Blue Shark II introduced subtle refinements with a focus on strength while the Blue Shark III Azores directly supports research initiatives in its namesake archipelago which contribute to conservation of endangered sharks. The Blue Shark IV has the power to go places most humans would only dream of.
"The Blue Shark holds a special place within DELMA’s diver collection. As our ultimate deep diver, evolution of the fourth edition required precise engineering and careful consideration of the case design. Presenting a timepiece with water resistance to 5000 meters epitomizes our motivation to create exceptional professional divers’ watches that inspire.” Andreas Leibundgut, Head of Marketing
Delma’s most powerful Blue Shark distinguishes itself as an exceptional divers’ instrument while possessing the collection's distinctive style. The solid stainless steel 47 mm case is appointed with superlative features for strength and security. The helium escape valve at 9 o’clock and screw down crown ensure ultimate water tightness. The unidirectional, easy to grip bezel is refined to complement the new 20 mm case height. Bold numerals, indexes and hands are accentuated with Super-LumiNova for clear legibility in the depths of the sea. With a sporty and robust personality, the Blue Shark IV’s superb craftsmanship is to be admired down to the finest detail and relied upon in all conditions.
Offered in the collection’s signature blue, black and orange dials, the Blue Shark IV is equipped for extreme diving as well as an alluring accessory for sports and recreational pursuits above the surface. Custom security screws and bespoke tools enable easy and reliable adjustment of the interchangeable solid stainless-steel bracelet and genuine rubber strap.
