10 Highlights in the History of the Dive Watch

Postby koimaster » March 14th 2017, 4:20pm

In the beginning, dive watches were pure tools: essential swimming buddies that helped keep divers on time and hence, well, alive. Today they’re something else: fashion statements, conversation pieces, rugged companions for a trip to the beach or pool. This is an excerpt from Timeline: “Dive Watches Through the Decades,” which traces the history of the dive watch from its start in the 1920s, with the invention of the first truly water-resistant cases, to 2014. (It includes only mechanical watches.*)

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

So it's a mini-version of a 2015 article from their print magazine with the full version available to download for $5.99. This is how journalism survives in the age of adblockers I guess.
