The Artiglio steamer and its successor, the Artiglio II, were the most important marine relic recovery ships of the 1920s and 1930s. With a crew consisting of the most experienced Italian divers, these steamers were born with the goal of recovering the cargo of sunken ships.
Helium escape valve
Each model is equipped with a manual helium escape valve. This decompression system allows the expulsion of helium from the watch worn by divers working with gas chambers. The valve prevents respired gas inside the diving bells, and contains helium, which penetrates on the inside of the watch, driving the water out to avoid the compromisation of the waterproofing.
Engraved back case
On the back case of the Artiglio we have the engraving of the butoscopic turret, used on the Artiglio steamer by the diver Alberto Gianni for major depth recoveries.
