Two Bestseller Watches for Divers

Mar 24, 2010
In the watchmaking industry, watch models are often designed for some particular application. One of the brightest examples is a diverís watch. This special type of a sports timepiece is intentionally produced for divers, who need an accurate and elegant instrument, which can reliably operate in an underwater environment.

Diver's watches require a high degree of water-resistance: they must at least be able to withstand water pressures down to 100 meters. Most of the contemporary models, however, are submersible to 200 meter or may go even deeper.

The TAG Heuer Men's 2000 Aquaracer Quartz watch fully complies with the technical requirements stated above. Engineered for professional divers, this watch is offered with a stainless steel case, which boasts a diameter of 38.4 mm. Its thickness is 10 mm.

The case construction exposes a screw-in crown with a double seal and a screw-down case-back with an engraved diver's helmet. It is also outfitted with a polished aluminum unidirectional rotating bezel, which reveals large numbers and a Superluminova dot at 12 oíclock. The watch bezel securely holds a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.

Housed in the case is a sleek flat marine blue dial, equipped with hour, minutes and seconds hands. The hands, indexes and bezel scale are tipped with a coat of luminous compound to ensure that the dial visibility is outstanding under reduced or no-light conditions. The display also includes a date aperture, located at 3 oíclock. The Aquaracer watch relies on a precise Swiss quartz movement.

This remarkable TAG Heuer watch is teamed with a durable triple link steel bracelet, closed with a double safety clasp. The water-resistance of the diverís watch is down to 300 meters.



Another timepiece, which surely deserves pro-diversí attention, is the Seiko Men's "Orange Monster" Automatic Dive watch.

The diverís watch is proposed with an imposing stainless steel case. It features the dimensions of 42.5 mm x 13 mm, the diameter and thickness indicated respectively. The case reveals a screw-down crown and case-back. The watch is framed by a silver-tone stainless steel unidirectional bezel.

Embraced by the case is an orange dial, equipped with hour, minutes and seconds hands, easy-to-read bar markers, as well as an English/Spanish day/date aperture, located at 3 o'clock. The hands, markers and bezel are tipped with a coat of Lumibrite, which makes the watch extremely legible in bright or dark conditions. Protecting the dial is a scratch-resistant Hardlex crystal. Animating the functions of the Seiko watch is an automatic 21-jewel movement.

The extraordinary Seiko diverís watch is mounted on a silver-tone stainless steel bracelet, enhanced with a fold-over safety clasp. The model is submersible to 200 meters.
