CAYMAN FIELD: UNCOVER NEW TERRAIN
Building upon a strong collection of divers’ and sailing watches, DELMA introduces a new sports watch with features to perform in all environments.
The Cayman Field aspires to travel to remote destinations on land with style and reliability. The tradition of field watches, established with a demand for legibility and strength motivated this timeless series. Originating in the early 20th century and known as “trench watches” for their intended use in battle, the durable, simple design and bold numerals which make the time clear in an instant are also practical for today’s outdoorsmen and adventurers.
The Field is an expansion of the Cayman collection which is built upon the design of a 1970s Delma divers’ watch. Extreme functionality of the new edition is apparent with bold luminous numerals set against a solid black dial. A red 24-hour track makes military time easy to register and adds a compelling design element. The Cayman Field features bright luminous indexes and hands in C3 SuperLuminova to clearly display time during high pace daytime activities and extreme nighttime treks. A luminous point on the unidirectional bezel and date at 3 o’clock printed in white on a black disc ensures activity durations are easily trackable.
As with all Delma timepieces, however quintessential to field watches, the Cayman Field is built to be sturdy and dustproof. The stainless steel case is sealed with an anti-reflective coated sapphire crystal to ensure durability and legibility in all lighting conditions. Automatic versions showcase the movement with a transparent case back. All three bracelet options including a new neutral khaki color canvas strap are a comfortable balance of casual and refined style. The quintessential simplicity paired with subtle design details and superb Swiss quality take the utilitarian roots of a field watch to new levels for active modern men with a sense of adventure.
