What’s Mike’s Deal? – TechnoMarine Diamond Jellyfish

In 1998 a new brand created by a diver in southern France hit the market and the naysayers pounced. No one would pay 3k to 4k for diamonds in steel on a jelly strap.

This piece is of course a current build. 40mm case of 316L steel is presented on the legendary TM silicone strap. The case houses a Miyota OS60 chronograph movement and is tested to 200M dive watch water resistance. From day one TechnoMarine was known for diamonds and this piece delivers there as well. The mother of pearl dial features frames which have been layered in rose gold around the subdials as well as markers and selected numbers that have been filled with INDIVIDUALLY HANDSET DIAMONDS IN CROWN SETTINGS. The finished work lists for $1695.00. You can have one now in the original factory packaging for just $299.99, shipping included!
