Wessex Peerless Tsunami
The Peerless series takes its inspiration from the watch designs of the grand masters of horology from bygone era's and combines it with the unique design approach of Wessex.
The Tsunami utilises the layered dial design concept of the Peerless range, each layer painstakingly created and finished by hand in our Wiltshire workshop. The base dial features a machined Japanese Saigaiha guilloché, which we believe is unique to us at Wessex. The semi-frosted finish to the base dial is achieved using our own in-house, unique methods, all accomplished with the dial makers hands. The top dial is meticulously cut away to form the chapter ring, sub-dial and banner, with our 3D depiction of the Great Wave off Kanagawa crashing in over the Saigaiha guilloché. The index and banner are engraved and hand painted in a deep blue, before we, again by hand, apply the final brushed finish.
The Swiss made case for The Peerless Tsunami is precision milled from solid block 316L stainless steel (surgical grade) and polished to a fantastic mirror finish. It features a double domed sapphire crystal with AR coating to the front and a flat sapphire crystal to the rear exhibition window.
The incredible movement takes the form of the absolutely stunning Unitas 6497-1 Élaboré Art Deco Skeleton, an exceptional and rarely found work of art that tells the time! Apart from the magnificent skeletonisation of the movement, this modified caliber features a Glucydur balance wheel, Nivarox balance spring and Incabloc shock protection. Beating at a stately 18,000 vph or five ticks per second, it is factory regulated in three positions with final regulation and testing performed by Wessex to ensure that your watch is accurate to just a very few seconds per day.
The watch is completed with Swiss made blue spade style hands and a handmade premium calf leather strap.
Each Peerless watch is assembled, regulated and tested by us at Wessex in our Wiltshire workshop.
