The unique instrument of survival during the ten stages of the expedition whose name it carries, the Arktos was specially designed and developed to exceptional specifications. Antimagnetic, encased inside soft iron, water tight to a depth of 300 meters, able to resist extreme temperatures down to –70° (whereas the oils used in the construction of a classic sports watch would fail at –30°); the Arktos can also be used as a compass.
“At extremely low temperatures, everything froze on me, nothing worked. The only thing that went right on working was my watch,”
To sum up, the Arktos lives up to all the technical promises we could have expected of it, and proves to be an extraordinary tool for extreme conditions. Its capacity for endurance puts it beyond any category and it has no rival on its favourite playing field: Adventure with a capital “A.”
