Top 12 Divers Watches
In order to choose the perfect divers watch it is important to understand how they differentiate from other types of wristwatches.
Divers watches are made specifically for activities such as snorkelling, surfing, water sports, sailing and swimming - the more bona fide divers watches for deep see explorations. The higher the water resistance, the more adequately equipped the watch is to withstand external conditions such as temperature, pressure and darkness.
Experts within the diving watches field such as the German craftsmen Sinn, have developed ground-breaking technologies that equip their watches with higher levels of protection. Their patented Ar-Dehumidifying feature not only enhances functionality but ensures freedom from fogging.
Sinn watches were also the first to create a divers watch which complies with the regulatory European diving equipment standards.
Oris have refined their manufacturing skills in creating divers watches through their Altimeter and Aquis collection, applying emphasis to features presented on their bezels. When submerged the bezel stays aligned to the minute that the wearer descended into the ocean as well as displaying present depth, total dive time and elapsed time.
Divers watches produced by the likes of Breitling enable the wearer to use their watch under extreme water depths, The Breitling Superocean collection for example, features a patented magnetic push-piece system, allowing the chronograph to control operations via the surrounding metal casing.
Ball Watch Company are also leading experts in developing supreme divers watches made from the cream of the crop in terms of materials. Similar to TAG Heuer and Maurice Lacroix divers watches, their dial designs reflect clarity through highly legible features dressed against spacious layouts. In the same manner that a Rolex Submariner can attract attention from across the room, Grand Seiko’s Spring drive divers watches are all about powerful status.
The likes of Glycine share the same passion for mechanical craftsmanship as many other influential luxury brands such as Tissot, Hamilton and Alpina. Eterna divers watches are also shrouded in pure mechanical mastery as the first of the KonTiki generation was born to demonstrate the brand’s zest for boundary pushing during their daring expedition across the Pacific Ocean. Our selection of favourite divers watches offer excellent craftsmanship, durable designs that are comfortable and lightweight to wear, yet display accurate, easy to read dials under depth and in low light conditions.
