Case

90% of all of our models have a stainless steel case.

All Esprit timewear models have a stainless steel case back.

Esprit uses only mineral crystal.


Ion plating (IP)

Esprit timewear exclusively uses ion plating: under vacuum conditions, ions touch and penetrate the base material at high velocity. The result is a color effect that is more durable than galvanization, models are available in colors such as gold, rosegold, black, grey, brown, antique gold.

All plating is according to EC law EN1811.


Nickel


Stainless steel and also brass cases contain a small amount of nickel but are within the limit allowed by law.


Water-resistance

All Esprit watches are standard 3 or 5 BAR water-resistant – the indication can be found on the case back. Some models are even 10 BAR water-resistant which is indicated on the dial and case back.

According to international standard, a watch may be called “water resistant” if it can withstand sweat, water drops or rain, and at remain least 30 minutes underwater at depth of 1 meter. Water resistance is measured in different degrees of water pressure (3,5,10 & 20 BAR).

The given pressure is not a measurement for how deep one can dive in the water.

The chronograph function can not be used during diving or swimming. If the chronograph buttons are pushed underwater, it will displace air inside the watch and cause it to leak.
