What is a Diving Watch?
Before taking a look at these two specific models, lets first explore what a diving watch is. Diving watches, or so-called ‘Divers’, are timepieces with features that are optimized for diving. A great diver must be able to withstand the harsh conditions of exploring the deep waters and helping the owner in doing so. One of the most important features on a diver is of course the water resistance (WR). Dive watches often offer a water resistance of 100m or even more. Other features a luxury dive watch often offers, is a rotating bezel. This bezel allows the owner to measure the time he or she has been under water. The dials are often fitted with luminescent markers and hands to ensure visibility in the low-light conditions.
