With its comfortable rubber wristband, the Grands Fonds 300 is perfectly at home at sea or on land. This accessory enhances the sporty chic style of the Swiss Made automatic diving watch. As with all ZRC products, it features the latest innovations offered by the brand. The Crown Protection SystemTM ensures a secure watertight seal. Its wristband can only be fastened if the crown at 6 o’clock is fully screwed down. The ECSTM system provides for a perfect rinse after a dive. This enables removing any impurities lodged between the ceramic insert bezel and the steel case.

Programmed deformation of materials
ZRC has a strong expertise in the field of the strains studies linked to the programmed deformation of materials, which guarantees the manufacture of waterproof watches at very great depth (1000M) without resorting to an helium valve or the presence of gel in the case: In addition, it also reduces the thickness of the case making the watch more comfortable to wear. Indeed, sapphire crystal, steel and/or titanium cases and ceramics do not react in the same way to pressure and temperature variations. This recognized expertise allows the Brand to offer reliable, simple and effective watches.
ECS™ Patent n°1462496 (Easy Clean System)
The ECS™ is a technical solution to an issue encountered by the mine clearance divers of the Marine Nationale during their many dives: salt crystallizing in the gaps between the bezel and case, thus impeding its rotation. For the 2015 re-issue of the Grands Fonds 300, ZRC has developed and patented a functional solution – the ECS™ was born. A unique system for cleaning the inside of the bezel by circulating fresh water that dilutes and evacuates the sea salt. The ECS™ is the ultimate tribute to the original Grands Fonds and is perfectly in tune with the brand’s identity.
Crown Protection System™
100% safety is guaranteed thanks to this exclusive strap system using retractable lugs. It is now impossible to place the watch in water without screwing the crown back into its original position. If the crown is not screwed down, the strap cannot be correctly repositioned. This effective method prevents oversights that can lead to technical difficulties.
