Aquastar Deepstar Chronograph “Greenwich” 39mm

In the summer of 2021, Swiss watch brand Aquastar introduced a very limited run of the Deepstar Chronograph in a captivating “Greenwich” sunburst dial. This timepiece sold out quickly. This year, the brand is offering the Greenwich dial in our newest 39mm Deepstar Chronograph case.

This new mid-sized reference faithfully adheres to the ethos and proportions of the pioneering Deepstar Chronograph from 1962 while retaining two of Aquastar’s key identifiers: the bidirectional rotating timing bezel with the brand’s unique “no decompression” table used to time repeated dives (the only one of its kind), and also the emblematic “cyclops” style mono-compax counter, originally devised by Aquastar founder and innovator Frederic Robert.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Buceador Caribe ‘Pipin’ Edition

At SIAR 2022 (Salón Internacional Alta Relojería México), Cuervo y Sobrinos unveiled a limited edition diving watch designed in collaboration with Pipin Ferreras, the legendary Cuban free-diver, and friend of the brand. This new addition to the Buceador collection is dressed in green tones and enlivened with black, cream and orange accents.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Buceador Caribe ‘Pipin’ Edition

In 2021, Cuervo y Sobrinos signed a partnership with Pipin Ferreras. Shortly thereafter, Pipin began working with the creative team at Cuervo y Sobrinos, developing a divers’ watch imbued with their shared appreciation of Cuban style.

Already impressed by the brand’s Buceador model, Pipin was keen to use this as the basis for his inaugural collaboration with the Cuban-Swiss company. The CyS Buceador Caribe ‘Pipin’ Edition watch encompasses several design elements that are personal to the legendary free-diver.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Buceador Caribe ‘Pipin’ Edition

Buceador is the Spanish word for ‘diver’, an apt name for a watch inspired by the Caribbean waters encircling the sun-kissed island Pipin calls home. This new version of the brand’s divers’ model shares all the features of the standard model including its highly complex 43mm case, water resistant to 200m. However, this latest model is appointed with a distinctive green dial, enlivened with black, cream and orange accents.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Buceador Caribe ‘Pipin’ Edition

An ingenious pusher system, positioned at 4 o’clock, unlocks the orange-coloured crown at 2 o’clock. The crown is used to adjust the internal rotating bezel, allowing the wearer to monitor their dive time. A silver-toned crown, located at 9 o’ clock, is used to adjust the indications as well as wind the mainspring.

The Buceador Caribe ‘Pipin’ Edition features bold hour and minute hands which engage with highly legible indices. Both the hands and indices are treated with Super-LumiNova, enhancing readability in dim light. A central sweep seconds hand and date display complete the inventory of functions.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Buceador Caribe ‘Pipin’ Edition

The case is composed of both straight and curving lines, while diving tanks and snorkels have provided inspiration for the design of the crowns and the aforementioned pusher.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Buceador Caribe ‘Pipin’ Edition watch case-back

Upholding divers’ watch convention, the Buceador Caribe ‘Pipin’ Edition is fitted with a solid case back. In this instance, it is engraved with the signature of the diving legend anda depiction of a diver swimming underwater, surrounded by a shoal of tropical fish.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Buceador Caribe ‘Pipin’ Edition watch with leather strap

The watch is supplied with two straps, one in green leather and a second executed in orange rubber. Moreover, the watch is presented in a special edition humidor with sections to accommodate the watch and up to two additional straps.

TUDOR PELAGOS 39, Reference 25407N

TUDOR has released a new 39mm version of its versatile diving watch Pelagos.

Dressed in a satin-brushed case in grade 2 titanium, TUDOR Pelagos 39 is a compact and versatile wristwatch that fuses the specifications of a technical diver with urban elegance.

The 39 mm case is topped with a unidirectional rotating bezel and sunray satin finish ceramic insert with grade X1 Swiss Super-LumiNova® luminous material. The diameter of the bezel slightly exceeds the middle case for maximum grip.

TUDOR PELAGOS 39, Reference 25407N

It comes with a sunray satin finish black dial with luminescent ceramic composite monobloc applied hour markers. The “Snowflake” hands, one of the hallmarks of the TUDOR divers’ watches introduced in 1969, are enhanced with grade X1 Swiss Super-LumiNova® luminescent material.

TUDOR PELAGOS 39, Reference 25407N with lume

The applied hour markers on the dial are made of monobloc luminescent ceramic composite, a feature that enhances the technical aesthetics, whilst considerably increasing the luminous surface of the hour markers. The dial is made up of two main elements, a sunray satin finish flat disc whose subtle shine contrasts with the matt finish of the 45° conical bead-blasted flange. The name Pelagos in glossy cherry red at 6 o’clock disrupts the model’s two-tone colour palette.

TUDOR PELAGOS 39, Reference 25407N

The TUDOR Pelagos 39 Reference 25407N model is equipped with Manufacture Calibre MT5400, offering a “weekend-proof” power reserve of about 70 hours. Certified as a chronometer by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC), this self-winding movement incorporates variable inertia balance and non-magnetic silicon balance spring.

TUDOR PELAGOS 39, Reference 25407N

The Pelagos 39 model is supplied with an entirely satin-brushed titanium bracelet that is equipped with the TUDOR “T-fit” clasp for rapid length adjustment.

Orient M-FORCE III

Japanese watch brand Orient presents three new models to mark the 3rd release of its M-FORCE series.

Revived in 2020 to celebrate Orient’s 70th anniversary, M-FORCE, the new flagship of the Orient Sports collection, features the tough structure of an outdoor watch and powerful styling that reflects the latest industrial design.

This Orient latest diver model series is themed around the grandeur of the Earth, with blue of the deep sea, orange of volcanic lava, and red of hot magma reflected in each dial, further emphasising the special character of M-FORCE.

Orient M-FORCE new limited edition watch 2022

A best-selling Orient collection, the M-FORCE is range of tough, functional outdoor watches. The first series was launched 25 years ago.

Dial colours of the new M-FORCE watches symbolise the vitality and power of the Earth. Blue represents the deep sea; orange expresses the lava; and red evokes the vitality and strength of the planet. These three symbolic colours dynamically adorning the dial give M-FORCE a new appeal.

The latest models of this 3rd release feature the same technical specifications adopted in the 1st release Orient M-FORCE diver model.

Orient M-FORCE new watch models 2022

Water resistance to 200 meters, these new timepieces are compliant with the ISO 6425 standard for air diving watches. They feature a massive protection shield that protects the large screw-in crown and unidirectional rotating bezel from shocks. Beneath sapphire crystal glass with anti-reflective coating, the dial offers high legibility with three-dimensional indices and Luminous Light with excellent luminosity.

The watch is equipped with the in-house caliber F6727 movement specially designed for Orient M-FORCE to enhance shock resistance.

All three models have stainless steel (SUS316L) cases and black-plated unidirectional rotating bezels. The models with dials in deep sea blue or lava orange come with a stainless steel (SUS316L) metal bracelet.

The limited edition of 2,000 pieces features a black silicon strap and comes in an exclusive box decorated in magma-inspired red.

Orient Star Diver 1964 2nd Edition

Japanese watch brand Orient Star has added two new Diver 1964 2nd edition models to its Sports Collection.

Following the release of the Orient Star Diver 1964 1st edition (reference RE-AU0501B) last year, the new Diver 1964 2nd edition pays tribute to this proud history once again by combining specific design elements of Calendar Auto Orient from 1964 with a modern, high-performance in-house movement. This full-fledged divers’ watch is compliant with the ISO 6425 standard.

Introduced in 2021, the Diver 1964 1st edition marked Orient Star’s 70th anniversary. The latest addition, the Diver 1964 2nd edition, is based on the Calendar Auto Orient, one of the company’s first divers’ watches released in 1964.

Orient Star Diver 1964 2nd Edition with Black dial RE-AU0601B

The Calendar Auto Orient featured simple dot indices on a mirror black finished dial, hands designed for excellent visibility, a rotating bezel incorporating an anodized aluminum ring, and sharply defined lugs.

The original Calendar Auto Orient equipped with an automatic movement was even more popular among watch aficionados than the hand-winding Olympia Calendar Diver which served as the inspiration for the Diver 1964 1st edition.

Orient Star Diver 1964 2nd Edition with Green dial RE-AU0602E

While the new Diver 1964 2nd edition reflects the designs inherited from the original model, it features the same specifications enhanced for the Diver 1964 1st edition such as a screw down crown, a screw case-back, a dual curved sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating, and water resistance to 200 metres compliant with the ISO 6425 standard for air diving watches.

The in-house 46-F6 series F6N47 automatic movement provides high accuracy and a power reserve of over 50 hours. In addition to displaying the time and date, this Orient Star diving watch has a power reserve indicator, a rare function for divers’ watches.

Orient Star Diver 1964 2nd Edition with Black dial RE-AU0601B

The new Diver 1964 2nd edition is available with a black or green dial. The black version (reference RE-AU0601B) is a faithful tribute to the Calendar Auto Orient with a mirror black finish on the dial and a matching shiny black bezel surface.

The matte green dial version (reference RE-AU0602E) comes with a matching matte green bezel. The green gradation on the dial is inspired by the Ryusendo Cave in Iwate Prefecture, Japan.

Orient Star Diver 1964 2nd Edition with Green dial RE-AU0602E

Made of high-quality stainless steel (SUS316L), the compact 41-mm diameter case makes the watch ideal for everyday use.

The two new models of the Diver 1964 2nd edition deliver features of a full-fledged divers’ watch as well as designs steeped in the heritage of Orient Star.

Sold as regular models, both RE-AU0601B and RE-AU0602E feature five-piece link bracelet in 316L stainless steel. A divers’ extension structure and the trifold deployment buckle with push button and security latch are included. The pyramid-like ridges of the additional silicon strap echo the design of the metal band of the original Calendar Auto Orient.

CITIZEN PROMASTER Mechanical Diver 200m, References NB6021-17E and NB6021-68L

CITIZEN presents a new series of PROMASTER Mechanical Diver watches inspired by a barnacle-covered 1977 Challenge Diver found on an Australian beach.

In 1983, a Challenge Diver was found on Long Reef Beach in Australia. The watch was covered in barnacles after being submerged in the Pacific Ocean, but the movement inside had remained protected from the seawater and was still serviceable. The new PROMASTER Mechanical Diver models take design cues from the original Challenge Diver design, but their external features and the movement inside have been updated for contemporary use.

CITIZEN PROMASTER Mechanical Diver 200m

The sapphire glass has a flat cut top and a domed underside, and the sides of the glass are beveled to provide a chunky, retro look. The watches have a guard-less crown design, and the 41.0 mm diameter is the same as the original model. The case is made of lightweight, scratch-resistant Super Titanium™, and is thinner than the original model to ensure a more comfortable fit on the wrist.

CITIZEN PROMASTER Mechanical Diver 200m

The Cal. 9051 movement in this model uses anti-magnetic materials for the balance spring and surrounding components to boost the magnetic resistance of the watch. It maintains its performance even when placed 1 centimeter from a device emitting a magnetic field of 16,000 A/m. In addition to being resistant to magnetic fields, the watches are also ISO compliant diver’s watches up to 200 meters. They can run for 42 hours when fully wound, with daily accuracy of -10 to +20 seconds.

CITIZEN PROMASTER Eco-Drive Diver 200m Limited Edition Model BN0225-04L

CITIZEN’s new limited edition PROMASTER Eco-Drive Diver 200m watch is a tribute to the endangered whale shark. This new model is a limited-edition of 5,000 pieces worldwide. A portion of the sales revenue from this model will go to support the marine conservation activities of international NGO Conservation International (CI).

The design of this model was inspired by whale sharks that can be found in plankton-rich, temperate seas near the equator. The dial and bezel feature a beautiful deep blue color evoking the ocean, and the pattern on the dial is inspired by the unique spot patterns on each whale shark’s back.

CITIZEN PROMASTER Eco-Drive Diver 200m Limited Edition Model BN0225-04L

The case design is inspired by the iconic 1982 Professional Diver which had the highest depth rating in the world – pressure resistance up to 1,300 meters – at the time of its release. The lug-less case silhouette, the four bezel guards, and the large indentations on the rotating bezel give the watch a bold, distinctive look.

The new PROMASTER Eco-Drive Diver 200m also features a sandblasted finish to recreate the distinctive rugged look of the original model. The massive 45.8mm diameter case is made from Super Titanium™ finished with CITIZEN’s proprietary Duratect MRK and Duratect DLC surface hardening technology, making it resistant to scuffs and scratches.

The bold hands and indices also ensure superior visibility. This light-powered Eco-Drive watch does not require regular battery replacement. An ISO compliant diver’s watch to 200 meters, it features an embossed whale shark silhouette on the case back.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon Original, New Models

In 2020, to mark the 15th anniversary of its most robust and distinctive collection, the BALL Watch Company launched the Engineer Hydrocarbon Original watch with a black dial and matching bezel. The year 2021 witnessed the addition of new versions featuring blue or green dial with matching bezels.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon Original, New Model with green dial and green sapphire bezel

The Engineer Hydrocarbon Original’s unidirectional bezel is made of blue or green sapphire and is graduated so that the diver can measure their dive time accurately and adjust their decompression stops in complete safety. For optimum handling of these specific diving functions, the bezel features special indents that allow it to be used with bare hands or with diving gloves.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon Original, New Model with blue dial and blue sapphire bezel

Water-resistant to 200 m/660 ft, this model is one of the few to feature micro tubes of H₃ gas inside the sapphire bezel. The brand’s iconic tubes can also be found on the hands and, for the first time ever, under the dial, allowing for unrivalled luminosity in the dark. This cutting-edge Swiss technology does not require an external charging source and consists of glass microcapsules filled with gas. These are up to 100 times brighter than the Super LumiNova paint usually used in the watchmaking industry.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon Original, New Model with blue dial and blue sapphire bezel

Powered by the COSC (Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute) certified automatic calibre BALL RR1102-CSL, the Engineer Hydrocarbon Original features hour, minute, central seconds, day and date functions.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon Original, New Model with green dial and green sapphire bezel

An already robust piece of equipment, this particularly resistant timepiece is complete with the patented Amortiser® shockproof system. Inside the movement itself, the SpringLOCK® and SpringSEAL® systems ensure continued accuracy in the event of shocks to the piece.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon Original, New Model with green dial and green sapphire bezel

Faithful to the specifications of the Hydrocarbon collection, the crown is equipped with a protection system consisting of a valve covering it, so as to ensure that it is securely screwed-in and inaccessible when diving. To ensure its superior reliability, this model is resistant to shocks of up to 7,500 G and anti-magnetic to 80,000 A/m thanks to the mu-metal shielding.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon Original, New Model with green dial and green sapphire bezel

Mumetal is an alloy of nickel, iron, copper and molybdenum with very high magnetic permeability, which enables it to attract and deflect static or low frequency magnetic field lines, against which other methods of attenuation are relatively ineffective.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon Original, New Models

Originally designed for submarine exploration and diving, the Original is equally at home in the water and on dry land. This 43 mm steel watch is not only versatile but suitable for adventurers and explorers, as well as more urban and conventional individuals.

Mido Ocean Star – Inspired By Architecture 20th Anniversary Limited Edition, Reference M026.430.17.041.01

2022 marks 20 years of Mido’s passion for architecture. The third creation of an anniversary series encompassing five models, the Ocean Star Inspired By Architecture reliably accompanies the most remarkable expeditions at sea, just like the monument that inspired it – the Europa Point Lighthouse, located in the Strait of Gibraltar.

Mido Ocean Star – Inspired By Architecture 20TH Anniversary Limited Edition, Reference M026.430.17.041.01

Each watch from the limited series of 1,841 timepieces – chosen to commemorate the year the monument engraved on its case back was built – is delivered in a special dedicated presentation box, accompanied by a medallion.

Created in 2002, the All Dial collection was the first to evoke one of ancient Rome’s most famous monuments in its design: the immense Colosseum amphitheatre. Ever since, the art of architecture has been written into the creative DNA of Mido and has influenced all of its collections. Just as the Europa Point Lighthouse acts as a landmark on the Mediterranean Sea, the high-performance, reliable Ocean Star also supports seafarers in their quests.

Mido Ocean Star – Inspired By Architecture 20TH Anniversary Limited Edition, Reference M026.430.17.041.01

The unidirectional rotating bezel with a blue aluminium ring tops the dial in a matching ‘velvet’ finish. The shape of the index at 12 o’clock, adorned with a touch of red, recalls the silhouette of the lighthouse which was built to guide men embarking on new maritime conquests. The Super-LumiNova® dot, meanwhile, evokes the light that safely guides them.

Mido Ocean Star – Inspired By Architecture 20TH Anniversary Limited Edition, Reference M026.430.17.041.01

The day and date indications can be read off in an aperture at 3 o’clock. To ensure a flawless display, even underwater and at night, the bezel, indexes and hands are adorned with white Super-LumiNova®.

Mido Ocean Star – Inspired By Architecture 20TH Anniversary Limited Edition, Reference M026.430.17.041.01

The varnished red tip of the seconds hand, enables the wearer to accurately track how much time has elapsed. The same red has been chosen for the stitching adorning the blue fabric strap with rolled edges, in a subtle nod to the lighthouse’s characteristic red stripe.

Mido Ocean Star – Inspired By Architecture 20TH Anniversary Limited Edition, Reference M026.430.17.041.01

The new Ocean Star Inspired By Architecture is powered by the Caliber 80, a next-generation automatic mechanical movement that has been carefully decorated according to watchmaking tradition. It offers up to 80 hours of autonomy.
The look of this anniversary Ocean Star is highlighted by the satin-finished steel chosen for its round 42.5 mm diameter case.

Mido Ocean Star – Inspired By Architecture 20TH Anniversary Limited Edition, Reference M026.430.17.041.01

Equipped with a screwed case back (five screws) and a screwed crown, this sports watch is water-resistant up to a pressure of 20 bar (200 m/660 ft). A representation of the Europa Point Lighthouse is engraved on the steel case back and similarly adorns the commemorative medallion that is delivered with this limited edition.

Mido Ocean Star – Inspired By Architecture 20TH Anniversary Limited Edition, Reference M026.430.17.041.01

In 2022, Mido is celebrating 20 years of passion for architecture. Sporty and seafaring with its blue diving aesthetic and touches of red, the Ocean Star Limited Edition pays tribute to the Europa Point Lighthouse as an unfailing ally of men at sea.

Certina DS Chronograph Automatic 1968

Swiss watchmaker Certina presents DS Chronograph Automatic 1968, a brand new timepiece inspired by a model from the 1960s.

Although boasting the 1960s design, its heart beats to the rhythm of a modern automatic movement with a silicon balance spring. The cushion-shaped case makes it a stylish accessory, while its chronograph functionality, water resistance up to 20 bar (200 meters) and the unidirectional rotating bezel testify to genuine sportiness.

 Certina DS Chronograph Automatic 1968

Introduced at the end of the 1960s the Certina DS Argonaut caused a sensation with its striking case and robust workmanship. Inspired by this model, the Swiss watchmaker has developed a worthy successor that would cut a fine figure in any tale of mythical heroes.

Certina DS Chronograph Automatic 1968 with black PVD case

The DS Chronograph Automatic 1968 is presented in a cushion-shaped stainless steel case (43.5 mm x 43.5 mm) with a black PVD surface. Sapphire crystal on the front and back of the watch provide optimal clarity and legibility.

Certina DS Chronograph Automatic 1968 with black PVD case

A round sapphire ring, fitted with a black/white scale printed from beneath, lends visual depth to the unidirectional rotating bezel. And thanks to their Super-LumiNova® coating, the sharply angled hands and indexes stand out clearly against the black dial even in the dark.

Certina DS Chronograph Automatic 1968 Stainless steel case with black PVD coating, black dial, leather strap

An elegant vintage style is only one of the many facets of the new DS Chronograph Automatic 1968. Another is its sporty character, underscored, for example, by the 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock and complemented by the central stop seconds and a small seconds at 9 o’clock.

Certina DS Chronograph Automatic 1968 Stainless steel case with black PVD coating, black dial, leather strap

The striking screw-down crown and water resistance up to 20 bar (200 m) contribute to enhanced robustness. The watch is driven by the ETA A05.H31 automatic (self-winding) movement with a 60-hour power reserve. It is equipped with a silicon balance spring whose innovative material protects it against magnetic fields, changes in temperature and shocks.

Certina DS Chronograph Automatic 1968 Stainless steel case with black PVD coating, black dial, leather strap

The matt black leather strap with white decorative stitching – easily exchanged thanks to the Certina quick-change system – offers additional safety and comfort.

Edox Delfin Diver Date Lady Special Edition

Swiss watch brand Edox has released the Delfin Diver Date Lady Special Edition watch to mark its partnership with Marianna Gillespie, the world No.1 female freediver.

Edox Delfin Diver Date Lady Special Edition

The current French national record holder in multiple disciplines, Marianna has been world champion four times, ranked No. 1 in the world six times and has also won the prestigious Vertical Blue competition. Known as ‘the mermaid from the East’, Marianna is one of the world’s strongest freedivers, ranked not only in the world top 10 in multiple individual disciplines but overall. Marianna Gillespie is a brand ambassador of Edox.

Edox Delfin Diver Date Lady Special Edition

First introduced in 1961, the innovative Edox Delfin with its patented double O-ring system and reinforced case, set the benchmark for water-resistant watches. The patented double seal meant that even with the crown open the Delfin was water-resistant. The watch was a smash hit, and Edox forged a name as the Water Champion.

Edox Delfin Diver Date Lady Special Edition

The new Edox Delfin Special Edition, like the original, is water-resistant to 200 meters. Its Caribbean-blue dial is set with 12 shimmering diamonds and protected by a scratch-resistant, anti-reflective sapphire crystal.

The striking, 12-sided shaped bezel harks back to a distinctive design first introduced by Edox in 1973. In low light, or under the water, the time can be clearly read thanks to the Super-LumiNova-coated hands.

A white dial is encased in the same distinctive shaped case as the 1970 classic which proved its strength and endurance when worn by the Japanese adventurer Naomi Uemura in the years 1974 to 1976 when he completed a 12,500km solo dog-sled run from Greenland to Alaska.

All three watches are powered by the Seiko self-winding Caliber 6R35 which delivers a power reserve of 70 hours. They are 200 meter water resistant and are presented on steel bracelets with secure clasps and extenders. The cases have a super-hard coating and the crystals are of sapphire with an anti-reflective coating on the inner surface to ensure high legibility from every angle. All twelve indexes have a generous coating of Lumibrite, as do the hands, to maximize legibility in the dark.

These three new watches from the Seiko Prospex Save the Ocean series will be available at the Seiko Boutiques and selected retail stores worldwide from June 2022.

Certina DS PH200M 39MM (with white mother of pearl dial)

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Swiss watch brand Certina is releasing a new white MOP dial version of its DS PH200M 39MM model.

With its classic retro look, the DS PH200M caused a stir when first introduced. In 2021 the debut model was joined by the DS PH200M 39MM with a slightly smaller case, black mother-of-pearl dial and black ceramic bezel. Now, the latest version adds genuine charm with its bright, fresh colours.

Certina DS PH200M 39MM (with white mother of pearl dial)

The stainless steel case has a 39-mm unidirectional white ceramic bezel whose smooth surface is set off by delicate rose gold-coloured markings. The white mother-of-pearl dial presents eleven sparkling diamonds in rose gold-coloured settings designed to complement the date window at 3 o’clock and the Super-Luminova®-coated hands.

Certina DS PH200M 39MM (with white mother of pearl dial)

A beige-white fabric strap made of #tide ocean material® rounds off the design, combining good looks with a good cause: the material is fashioned from plastics fished from the world’s oceans.

Certina DS PH200M 39MM (with white mother of pearl dial)

The usual robust workmanship, which Certina values highly in all its models, makes DS PH200M perfectly wearable wherever it goes. The screw-down crown and water resistance to 20 bar (200 m) plays its part, as does the familiar Double Security (DS) concept.

The Powermatic 80 movement is visible through the sapphire crystal case back. Its innovative Nivachron™ balance spring ensures that its rate precision remains unaffected by magnetic fields.

Tag Heuer Aquaracer Professional 200

In 2021, Tag Heuer revived its Aquaracer Professional Series by launching a new luxury dive watch collection named Aquaracer Professional 300.

Now, the Swiss watchmaker is introducing the Aquaracer Professional 200, a new addition to the Aquaracer Professional Series. This new range will offer both gents and ladies’ dive watches with either a 40mm or 30mm stainless steel case.

Tag Heuer Aquaracer Professional 200

Just like the Aquaracer Professional 300 series, Tag Heuer Aquaracer Professional 200 features the famous and now upgraded bezel with twelve facets first introduced in 1995; a refined, repeating horizontal line dial decoration; sculpted, chamfered, shorter lugs with brushed and polished finishes; a three-link bracelet, and a screw-down crown with twelve facets and protection.

The Aquaracer Professional 200 is more compact at 40mm (compared to 43mm size of Aquaracer Professional 300), with the further option of a smaller 30mm case. The bezel still features a diving scale, only now it’s engraved into a steel insert, rather than one in ceramic. The central bracelet link is polished rather than brushed, lending the Aquaracer Professional 200 its more formal feel.

Tag Heuer Aquaracer Professional 200

Where the Aquaracer Professional 300 has octagonal hour markers, an oversized hour hand, and yellow detailing, the Aquaracer Professional 200 adopts more classic sports watch codes with straight-edged, trapezoidal hour markers, sleeker sword-shaped hands, and crisp white detailing. For dial legibility, the hour markers and hands are still coated with Super-LumiNova, but to create a more sartorial look, no luminescent material has been applied to the bezel.

Tag Heuer Aquaracer Professional 200 Automatic 40mm model with black dial
Tag Heuer Aquaracer Professional 200 Automatic 40mm

The new Aquaracer Professional 200 models offer a choice of movements. In the 40mm collection, there are two automatic and two quartz references, while at 30mm there are two automatics and five quartz options. This marks another departure from the Aquaracer Professional 300, which is only available with an automatic mechanical movement.

Tag Heuer Aquaracer Professional 200

The choice of movement changes the watch’s layout and functionality. Automatics are distinguished by their fumé (smoky) gradient dials, date windows (but without a magnifier – to maintain the watch’s streamlined profile), Super-LumiNova sweeping seconds hands, and more detailed minute tracks.

Tag Heuer Aquaracer Professional 200

The quartz models have no date and a pared-back look by comparison, while otherwise retaining the same aesthetic and technical characteristics.

In the 30mm range there are further playful, elegant options. There are three quartz models with a light silver colour, light blue or black sunray dials; a quartz model with a diamond- dot white mother-of-pearl dial; an additional quartz model that adds a diamond-set bezel to a diamond-dot white mother-of-pearl dial; and then two automatics with either a black or blue fumé diamond-dot dial. Again, the automatics feature date windows.

One attribute shared by every new Aquaracer Professional 200 reference is the case back design. The watch’s reverse is engraved with a compass, replacing the scaphander diving helmet that has featured on Aquaracer case backs (and its predecessors) since 2002. The backdrop to this remains the repeating engraved hexagonal motif seen on the Aquaracer Professional 300.

The bezel improvements detailed in the Aquaracer Professional 300 are also present in its sister watch. The bezel’s rotating mechanism is almost fluid, and yet still has a reassuring click that signals its reliability under pressure.

Tag Heuer Aquaracer Professional 200 bezel

Both watches feature a slimmed-down, more elegant bracelet that continues TAG Heuer’s long tradition of producing ergonomic bracelet designs that follow the natural curvature of every wearer’s wrist.

Tag Heuer Aquaracer Professional 200 watch bracelet

As well as being highly flexible and durable, the Aquaracer Professional 200’s bracelet comes with a comfort link with a 7mm extension that can be adjusted quickly using a beautifully engineered push-down-and-pull release mechanism.

Tag Heuer Aquaracer Professional 200 watch buckle

Both pieces in the Aquaracer Professional Series also have intelligently designed fluting on the bezel’s facets so it can be easily gripped and adjusted. The riders from previous generation Aquaracer bezels have been removed, giving the Aquaracer Professional 200 its uninterrupted bezel profile.

Seiko Prospex 1968 Diver’s Modern Re-interpretation Save the Ocean Limited Edition

In 1965, Seiko introduced its and Japan’s, first diver’s watch. With water resistance to 150m and an automatic movement, it proved its high quality and reliability when worn by members of the 8th Japanese Antarctic Research Expedition in 1966. Thanks to the positive reaction of the members of the expedition on their return, Seiko’s diver’s watches were chosen by the same research team between the years 1966 and 1969, during which time the landmark Seiko diver’s watch with 300m water resistance and a 10-beat automatic movement was created, in 1968.

Now, Seiko expands its Prospex collection with a new interpretation of the 1968 diver’s watch that is even better equipped to meet the challenge of the most extreme conditions on earth. This watch, with its advanced specifications, will be worn by members of the 63rd Japanese Antarctic Research Expedition’s mission to Antarctica.

The case, bezel and crown are all made of Seiko’s Ever-Brilliant Steel, which is more corrosion resistant than the regularly used stainless steel. To further ensure the watch’s durability, the crown is not screwed directly into the case but locked into a separate component that is built into the case and so can be more easily replaced.

Seiko Prospex 1968 Diver's Modern Re-interpretation Save the Ocean Limited Edition

The watch is powered by Caliber 8L35 which was developed especially for diver’s watches. Hand-assembled by the craftsmen and women at the Shizukuishi Watch Studio in northern Japan, this automatic movement is accurate and rigid. It has a power reserve of 50 hours.

The patterned dial captures the feeling of the Antarctic landscape while the subtle gradation of the blue from light to dark echoes the beautiful colors of the polar ice. The bezel also evokes the uniqueness of this frozen landscape with its ice-blue numerals and markers. All twelve-hour markers have a generous coating of Lumibrite, as do the hands, and the crystal is a dual-curved sapphire with anti-reflective coating on the inner surface to ensure high legibility from every angle.

The design and texture of the watch strap pay homage to the 1968 original but it is now produced in silicone for greater strength and comfort. The watch is also offered with a fabric strap which incorporates a traditional braiding technique from Japan called Seichu.

This new watch joins the Seiko Prospex Save the Ocean series in support of several different marine conservation initiatives, one of which involves contributions to the National Institute of Polar Research, which is based in Tokyo. As part of this program, Seiko recently donated watches to the 63rd Japanese Antarctic Research Expedition (JARE) team.

This new Prospex diver’s watch will be available as a limited edition of 1,300 at the Seiko Boutiques and selected retail partners worldwide in January 2022.

BALL Watch Engineer II Skindiver Heritage Full-Black Limited Edition

In the 1960s, BALL Watch Company introduced its first dive watch for adventure seekers. The Engineer II Skindiver Heritage watch in TiC coated steel case enhances the purpose-built functions of its historic predecessors.

BALL Watch Engineer II Skindiver Heritage Full-Black Limited Edition

With micro gas tube luminosity appearing underneath curved rotating bezel, on the dial, and arranged handsomely on the hands, the watch’s undeniable avant-garde design is sure to entice.

Clear visibility is of paramount importance to divers and explorers. The Swiss cutting-edge technology of micro gas tubes featured on the Skindiver Heritage makes this timepiece highly functional in the darkness of the depths.

BALL Watch Engineer II Skindiver Heritage Full-Black Limited Edition

This technology used by BALL Watch involves encapsulating H₃ gas in glass micro tubes— quite unlike any other luminescent material found in watchmaking. When the H₃ molecules strike the internal-colored surface of the tubes, they emit light without requiring any form of external light or energy source. To add some playful action to this all-black timepiece, the tubes form a combination of rainbow-like colors.

Combined with a black dial, this full-black model reveals a new-wave look while remaining top-notch in safety performance.

BALL Watch Engineer II Skindiver Heritage Full-Black Limited Edition

For easy use under water, the bezel and the crown of the Skindiver Heritage have been finely designed to allow firm grips even while wearing gloves.

The case and the bracelet are made of stainless steel with a TiC (Black Titanium Carbide) coating, and the subtle-domed sapphire crystal bezel adds style while being a central safety piece of the watch.

Unidirectional for better assurance, the bezel is used to accurately monitor the immersion time as well as decompression stops. Water resistant to 200m/660ft and featuring a screwed-in crown, the Skindiver is the perfect companion for underwater expeditions.

BALL Watch Engineer II Skindiver Heritage Full-Black Limited Edition

The 42mm case features a see-through sapphire crystal case back that offers a unique view of the automatic BALL RR1102 caliber. This movement runs the hour, minute and second hands as well as the day and date functions.

Anti-magnetic to 4,800A/m and shock resistant to 5,000Gs, this limited edition of 390 pieces has been designed for explorers and is ready for adventures.

Voutilainen x Leijona Försti Diver Watch

Försti Diver is the most recent addition to the collaborative series between master watchmaker Voutilainen and Leijona, the brand known for its Finnish-Swiss watchmaking heritage.

This is the first diving watch in which Kari Voutilainen and his studio have been closely involved. This amazing timepiece boasts good proportions and user comfort, without compromising on the features characteristic of a diving watch: durability and water resistance.

Voutilainen x Leijona Försti Diver Watch

The Finnish temperament, honest and unyielding, is reflected in the high-quality implementation of the unique details. Every Försti Diver wristwatch undergoes several stages of artisan work before its journey to Finland from the Val-de-Travers valley of watches next to the Jura Mountains in Switzerland.

Voutilainen x Leijona Försti Diver Watch

The effective implementation of the stylish black and light-coloured dials involves several production stages emphasizing the importance of flawless craftsmanship and professional skill. A galvanic tint defined by a special kind of plating method has been chosen as the dial colour for both Försti Diver watches. This exceptional technique brings out the stunning finish of the dial.

Voutilainen x Leijona Försti Diver Watch

The dials have been manufactured by Voutilainen’s dial making company Comblémine SA, which produces these flawless dials down to the finest detail.

Made of high-grade stainless steel, each watch case is refined and finished by hand at Voutilainen & Cattin SA’s factory. In the finishing of the case, special attention has been paid to the quality of the surfaces, the longevity, and the durability.

Voutilainen x Leijona Försti Diver Watch

A Leijona quartz diving watch of the 1970s/1980s was the source of inspiration for the Försti Diver watches. To support the design work, an original model in good condition was tracked down and used as part of the model’s design. The Leijona diving watch found to support the design was discovered intact in the sea in the early 1990s by its current owner while diving.

The watch that inspired the Försti is incidentally almost identical to the first watch (Leijona) of Grand Master Kari Voutilainen, which was a black-dial Leijona diving watch with a rubber strap and a reddish bezel. In honour of the original model and Kari’s first watch (Leijona), the new model, the design of which has been adapted for the present day, also has a black dial, a red and black bezel and a rubber strap in addition to a steel one.
