Today, let’s plunge into the world of Delma, the Swiss maestros of watches, born in the late 1920s. Known for their iconic diving watches, Delma has been making waves since the ’60s. We’re about to unravel the journey, style, and sheer brilliance of their latest product– the Delma Blue Shark IV.

A Trip Down Memory Lane

So, what is there to know about Delma watches? Delma is a Swiss watch brand that’s been around since the late 1920s. In the swinging ’60s, they made a name for themselves with standout models like the Periscope and the Shell Star.

Fast forward to 2011, and Delma kept the momentum going with the Blue Shark series – watches made for folks who love the water. They’re tough, stylish, and won’t break the bank. The newest kid on the block is the Blue Shark IV, and it’s making some serious waves, especially when it comes to water resistance.

Setting the Bar High: Blue Shark I to III

The Blue Shark journey started with the Blue Shark I, boasting a solid 3,000 meters of water resistance. This set the stage for the other models – the Blue Shark II in 2016 and the Blue Shark III in 2019, both keeping that 3000m capability. These watches are built for underwater adventures, by all means! They have stainless steel cases, rotating bezels, luminous markers, and a date display at 3 o’clock.

You can easily switch between a metal bracelet and a rubber strap for comfort and versatility. The Blue Shark III even added some cool upgrades, like crown protectors and easy-to-use security screws.


The Blue Shark IV: Diving Deeper

Now, let’s talk about the Blue Shark IV, the latest and greatest in the series. It’s not messing around – this bad boy can go down to 5,000 meters below the surface. The stainless steel case is a bit bigger than its predecessor, measuring 47mm in diameter and 20mm in thickness.

The stainless steel bezel is a champ, offering a solid grip with its bright orange markings. You’ll spot the helium escape valve on the left side. Flip the watch over, and you’re met with a domed solid caseback. We can see this one shows off laser engravings with an imposing shark image, details about the 5,000m depth rating, and other essential tidbits.

Colors Galore on Delma Blue Shark IV

The Blue Shark IV keeps the dial game strong, offering classic blue, black, and orange options. Feeling a bit edgy? There’s even a version with a black DLC-coated bezel.

With six distinct looks in the Blue Shark IV collection, Delma’s got something for everyone. Legibility is key, with indices and bold hour and minute hands shining bright underwater thanks to orange and green Super-LumiNova.

The Power Behind the Watch

Delma switched things up with the Blue Shark IV, opting for the reliable Sellita SW200-1 movement. It’s a change from the previous ETA 2824-2 movement but brings similar perks.

There’s a 38-hour power reserve and a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour. When you’re deep underwater, reliability is crucial, and the SW200-1 delivers.

The Whole Package

The Blue Shark IV comes with its signature solid steel three-row bracelet. Open up the box, and you’ll find a rubber strap with a cool embossed Delma logo. Plus, you will find special tools for easy transitions between the bracelet and the strap.

Delma’s keeping it exclusive, with only 999 pieces available per case type. The price tag? EUR 2,390 for the steel version, and if you fancy the DLC-coated bezel, it’s EUR 2,490.

Tip: Crafted in premier honeygold, A. Lange & Söhne’s Zeitwerk Minute Repeater is a masterpiece in timekeeping. Have you heard of them? Read more on our blog!
