Mechanical depth gauge

Postby koimaster » July 16th 2018, 1:41pm

A few years ago IWC was the first Swiss watch brand to make a high end mechanical watch with a mechanical depth gauge, the famous IWC Deep One. I can still remember the first time i saw that watch, it was for me the most beautiful divewatch i’d ever seen. And i guess untill this day it’s one of my favorite dive watches.

Unfortunately IWC doesn’t produce them anymore, because the mechanical depth gauge gave them quite some trouble as i understood it. Now since last year there are some new high end watch brands bringing out a divewatch with a mechanical depth gauge, Panerai and Jaeger LeCoultre.

In Revolution Magazine you can read a very interesting article about these divewatches with meachical depth gauges. You can find it via the website of Horomundi or Timezone.

On the IWC forum there is also a most excellent article about the history of IWC divewatches. So if you feel like reading about the most beautiful divewatches, i’d suggest you click here. To conclude a nice picture of IWC’s most beautiful dive watches, the Deep One and the Aquatimer 2000.
