Jul 19, 2012

If you’re in the middle of a heat wave like us, all of your thoughts turn towards the water. The summer isn’t complete without some kind of excursion to the water whether it’s the lake, the pool, or the ocean. But for you diving enthusiasts, the water isn’t a daytrip but a lifestyle and one of the key tools for diving is none other than the diving watch. We’ve put together a list of our Top 5 Diving Watches that not only excel in the diving field, but are stylish enough to go straight from diving to a dinner date.

1) IWC Aquatimer Deep Two Watch

With a solid history of timekeeping for yacht races, IWC is a master of building watches for water sports. The Aquatimer Deep Two goes a step beyond the average diving watch and has a mechanical depth gauge to ensure the maximum amount of safety. This watch, water resistant to 120 meters, has a backup system to plan dive depth and time in the event there is a mechanical failure with other diving computers. The three color coded scales on the dial indicate the actual dive depth (blue), the maximum depth (red), and a pressure measuring system (white).

2) Bell & Ross Hydromax Watch

Bell & Ross is mostly known for their rugged, vintage dashboard design pilot watches, but they also know how to make a solid diving watch. The Hydromax was developed to withstand the rigorous ordeal of diving conditions. This watch is equipped with a quartz movement and is water resistant up to a whopping 11,100 meters, a feat achieved by filling the watch case with transparent Hydroil. The watch case was designed to compensate for the expansion and contraction of the fluid that ensures complete waterproofness.

3) Breitling Avenger Seawolf Watch

Breitling’s famous Avenger series has constructed a powerful diving watch, water resistant up to 3,000 meters. Even though it’s built to withstand these depths, this watch has been kept at a very reasonable diameter of 44mm. The Seawolf’s titanium case is also equipped with a safety valve that automatically evacuates the built up helium in the case at 30 meters, and reduce the pressure on the case. And with a cool name like the Seawolf, how can you resist?

4) Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Compressor Diving Navy SEALs Watch

This watch was designed with suggestions from none other than actual Navy SEALs. The bezel is equipped with a matte surface for minimum light reflection, its engineered to stand up to all kinds of conditions, and it is water resistant up to 300 meters. The sharp contrast of the white on black numerals and the powerful Super-LumiNova coated ensures long lasting readability in the dark. The Master Compressor watch, like all Jaeger-LeCoultre watches, has been submitted to 1,000 hours of testing to make certain of its reliability.

5) TAG Heuer Aquaracer 500m Watch

TAG Heuer also has over 80 years of standing behind yachtman. This particular Aquaracer was named as the “Alpha Male” of Aquaracers at Baselworld in 2009 and instead of stainless steel for the bezel, this model uses ceramic due to its more scratch resistant nature and fade-resistant. The helium valve and crown have rubber grips for better handling. The streamlined look of the black model sure makes this watch easy on the eyes, in and out of the water.
