Delma's fascination with and compassion for the incredible continent of Antarctica is also reflected in the design of the new Oceanmaster. The cool blue dial is inspired by the colours of the ice as it meets the surrounding water while the raised texture represents the unique structure of the frozen landscape. The choice to create a limited edition of 200 pieces was derived from the milestone anniversary which it commemorates

Delma's ambassador Nick Moloney granted the company an undeniable opportunity to develop a new model that would assist him and his team on their expedition to Antarctica in February 2020 to commemorate its discovery 200 years ago. While this was a poignant way for Delma to expand our partnership with long distance sailing, they also considered the context in which this journey was taking place. When Antarctica’s Princess Martha Coast was first discovered on 27 January 1820, the explorers were presented with a goliath ice shelf that reached out from the frozen continent. This year Nick and his team saw a new perspective of this fragile landscape as its impressive coastline constantly evolves. While the Southern Ocean surrounding Antarctica is one of the most pristine places on Earth, largely unaffected by humans, the nearly 10,000 diverse species that call this unique habitat home are in danger. The Antarctic Peninsula is one of the fastest warming places on earth. During the team’s expedition, the warmest temperature on the northern tip of Antarctica was recorded, over 20 °C.
Time for preservation
In order to give the project even greater significance, and support the future of this captivating place, Delma felt compelled to contribute to preservation efforts. The company is proud to support the Antarctic and Southern Ocean Coalition (ASOC) in their mission to protect this great wilderness and the fascinating wildlife that relies on it by donating a portion of the proceeds of each Oceanmaster Antarctica.
