The Navygraf FSM Bronze has been designed in collaboration with Marine Nationale in order to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Strategic Oceanic Force (FOST). Equipped with our In-house Caliber YEMA2000 and an oversized double domed sapphire crystal, the Navygraf FSM Bronze takes inspiration from the first Navygraf model from the 1970s and has been designed as a precise timekeeping instrument for military personnel aboard FOST’s nuclear-powered submarines.

STRATEGIC OCEANIC FORCE (FOST) 50TH ANNIVERSARY

Created on March 1st, 1972 the Strategic Oceanic Force (FOST) is the key naval component of Marine Nationale's Submarine Forces, made up of 4,000 sailors, military and civilians, who operate 4 ballistic missile nuclear submarines (SNLE), 6 nuclear attack submarines (SNA) and units providing their command and support.

SUBMARINE FORCES DIAL

The bronze case hue is found as well in the dial's Navygraf mention, the indexes and watch hands while the black dial is reminiscent of FOST's nuclear submarines' hulls.

The FORCES SOUS-MARINES curved mention at 6 o'clock and the indexes in the shape of "exclamation points" are inspired by the 1970s Navygraf vintage model. Finally, the fine red tip of the seconds hand brings a touch of colour that is both elegant and functional.

DESIGNED BY AND FOR NAVY SUBMARINE CREW

Beyond its striking aesthetics, the Navygraf FSM Bronze is above all a military-grade tool watch designed in collaboration with Marine Nationale Submarine Forces built to military personnel specifications and strict requirements. 

OVERSIZED DOUBLE-DOMED SAPPHIRE CYSTAL

The Navygraf FSM Bronze has a 3.00mm thick double-domed sapphire crystal, offering better readability, increased resistance and a resolutely vintage look.

38.5MM BRONZE CASE

The bronze case, an alloy that develops a patina over time, echoes various key mechanical elements used in submarines such as the flush blocks allowing submarines to rise to the surface, the fast flush control that ensures the safety of the submarine and the filling and emptying sections of the weapon launcher tubes.

The bronze case boasts different finishes with vertical brushing, polished bevelled lugs and a circular brushed bezel. With a diameter of 38.5mm and a contained thickness of 11.3mm (14.1mm with the double-domed sapphire crystal), the Navygraf FSM Bronze offers ideal dimensions for neo-vintage watches amateurs.

MARINE NATIONALE PARACHUTE STRAP

DESIGNED BY THE MILITARY

This iconic strap was originally handmade by French Marine Nationale combat divers in the 1970’s. The resourceful frogmen fashioned straps from used parachutes by recovering the elastic webbing to sew them back on and adapt them to their diver watches. For years, this type of strap has remained purely military, nowadays it’s a great alternative to NATO straps.

This rubber-like material is ultra-resistant, flexible and comfortable to wear.
