The Evolution Of Complicated Diving Watches

Postby Racer-X » June 2nd 2017, 8:07pm

by Martin Green "Water resistance and reliability are what it is all about with a diving watch. Anything that doesn’t contribute to this does not belong on such a watch. This is why the history of diving watches features mainly robust time-only watches. However, advances in technology make it now possible to achieve a water resistance that was unimaginable half a century ago. Also, the reliability of complications has been increased making it now possible to create diving watches the world has never seen before."

Except for that Sub with some lovely, aged tritium lume, the watches featured in that article look like Invicters.

I for one, find the perpetual calendar and gemstone set bezel a must have, when diving above sea level (situation I frequently find myself in) ......
