This Unimatic timepiece was created in collaboration with Uncrate, the leading buyer’s guide for men and one of the largest men’s publications.

UNIMATIC x UNCRATE Modello Tre U3-U Limited Edition

The Modello Tre chrono-diver U3-U captures the essence of the model with the bare minimum of ornamentation.

The case is sand-blasted PVD gunmetal grey, a case treatment that’s a first for Unimatic.

UNIMATIC x UNCRATE Modello Tre U3-U Limited Edition

The watch is fitted with a storm gray TPU two-piece strap and a black heavy-duty Unimatic nylon NATO strap, both with sandblasted gunmetal PVD finish hardware, accompanied by a tough case that holds both this watch and another, and a Unimatic x Uncrate warranty card for the two-year worldwide warranty.

Time is indicated thanks to the matte black phantom ladder hands set and the black reverse lollipop second hand with white tip. The double domed anti-reflective sapphire crystal provides the best performance in every light condition.

UNIMATIC x GRIMOLDI Modello Uno U1-GM Limited Edition

The solid 316 brushed stainless steel case, the screwed in 2mm thick caseback, the 8mm diameter crown together with the high quality gaskets set provide a water resistance tested individually to 30 atm (300m/1000ft).

Peren Nera Rogue

Peren’s brand new timepiece, the Nera Rogue is inspired by an iconic military dive watch.

In the 1960s, the legendary Swiss Maison Blancpain created the Tornek Rayville TR-900 diver for the United States Navy.

Peren Nera Rogue

It was specially developed for the US Navy’s Experimental Diving Unit for use by its Underwater Demolition Team divers, a unit that would later become known as the Navy SEAL’s.

Peren Nera Rogue

Only around 1,000 pieces were made, and most were subsequently destroyed because the watch was using a radioactive element. This timepiece is a rare horological gem and only about 30 pieces exist as on date.

Peren Nera Rogue

Taking inspiration from the legendary TR-900 timepiece, the Peren Nera Rogue is a distinctive hand built automatic Swiss dive watch with unique features.

This Swiss made diving timepiece features a 39mm diameter case made of marine grade stainless steel. The Nera Rogue watch is equipped with a screw-down crown at 3 o’ clock and a black PVD unidirectional rotating bezel. The fluted conical rotating bezel offers supreme grip and smooth operation.

Peren Nera Rogue

The watch is water resistant up to 200m/660ft. It houses an in-house regulated Swiss Automatic Sellita SW200 movement, which provides a power reserve of 38 hours when fully wound.

Peren Nera Rogue

Presently, the Peren Nera Rogue watch can be pre-ordered via the brand’s online store. The pre-order price is CHF 449 and the recommended retail price will be CHF 689.00.

Estimated delivery: November 2021.

Revelot R11 Hexmariner

Young watch brand Revelot presents R11 Hexmariner, a dress styled dive watch that reinterprets the designs of iconic diving timepieces like Submariner.

Revelot R11 Hexmariner

While maintaining the silhouette of the Sub, the overall case and bracelet of the R11 Hexmariner watch are given more angular and edgy by introducing chamfers and hexes giving an industrial edge to the iconic profile. Both brush & polish metal finishes give this modern tool watch a touch of a classic elegance.

Revelot R11 Hexmariner

The watch is mounted with a unidirectional ceramic bezel with C3/BGW9 Swiss made Super-luminova.

Revelot R11 Hexmariner

An anti-reflective chamfered sapphire glass protects the dial side. Instead of the emblematic lollipop hands, the brand has decided to fit a sturdy chamfered sword shaped hands with mirror on the side and brush on the top with a generous dash of Super-Luminova. Same for the Indexes in order to match the drapes; hex shaped chamfered blocks filled with C3 or BGW9 Swiss lume depending on model.

Revelot R11 Hexmariner

R11 Hexmariner boasts an embossed Crystal Star pattern dial which harmonizes with the overall design. The watch is also available with a Muonionalusta meteorite dial.

Revelot R11 Hexmariner

The R11 is powered with the Seiko NH35 self-winding movement with date display. Fitted with a decorated exhibition caseback, the Revelot Hexmariner offers 200m water resistance.

Revelot R11 Hexmariner

On 19th October this year, the brand launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for the initial mass production of the R11 Hexmariner watch. During this one month long crowd-funding drive, the brand is offering a special launch price of $279.

SEIKO Prospex “Seigaiha” U.S. Special Editions (references SLA053 and SLA059)

Seiko Watch of America has recently announced two amazing U.S. special edition Prospex professional diving watches with eye-catching dials highlighting the ancient “Seigaiha” pattern.

Exclusively available in the U.S. market, these diving watches from the Prospex collection combine the finest dive watch technology with centuries of tradition and craftsmanship.

Seigaiha is an ancient Japanese decorative motif in which layered concentric circles form an arched wave pattern. The two new watches, with their Seigaiha-patterned dials in vivid blue (SLA053) or deep burgundy (SLA059), add another rich element of symbolism in evoking the role of the moon in both the Shinto and Zen Buddhist traditions. The blue represents the ocean waves under moonlight and the burgundy, the first rays of sun brightening the dark seas at dawn.

Seiko Prospex Seigaiha U.S. Limited Edition, reference SLA053
Seiko Prospex Seigaiha U.S. Limited Edition, reference SLA053

These watches house Seiko’s proprietary 8L35 movement. The 26-jewel automatic 8L35, beating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, provides a power reserve of approximately 50 hours and boasts manual winding capability.

Each Seigaiha U.S. Special Edition is crafted to perform flawlessly in the roughest seas. The monobloc stainless steel case ensures water resistance to a depth of 300 meters, following ISO standards for saturation diving. The black ceramic unidirectional elapsed timing bezels and screw-down crowns provide added security on deep dives, while LumiBrite coated hands, markers, bezel accents, and anti-reflective sapphire crystals enhance legibility.

The blue dial version, with black hard-coated case and black silicone strap, will be available only in a controlled-production run of 500, with the serial number engraved on each caseback, while the burgundy dial variation features a super-hard coated stainless steel bracelet with tri-fold push-button release clasp and slide adjuster, as well as an additional black silicone strap.

Both timepieces will be packaged in special collectors’ boxes, including a unique explanatory scroll and the unique gift of coordinating Seigaiha-pattern cufflinks.

The Seiko Prospex “Seigaiha” Limited Edition SLA053 ($3,200, limited edition of 500) is available from August 2021, with Special Edition SLA059 ($3,300) following in November 2021, both exclusively in the U.S. market.

Circula SuperSport Automatic

Pforzheim based watch brand Circula presents its latest timepiece, the SuperSport Automatic.

Founded in 1955, German watch brand Circula stands for high-quality mechanical watches with an authentic retro design. The new Circula SuperSport is a Super- Compressor diving watch, which were first launched in the 1950s.

Circula SuperSport Automatic

The SuperSport is not just a Super-Compressor-style watch (i.e., two crowns and an inner rotating bezel), but also includes a real compressor-function. Thus, the case back is compressed by water pressure for better sealing.

Circula SuperSport Automatic

As a genuine Super-Compressor, the SuperSport is based on models from the middle of the last century, modernized with today’s sporty elements.

Circula SuperSport Automatic

The case has a diameter of 40 millimeters and a water resistance of 300 meters. Sapphire crystal guarantees a scratch-free view onto the dial, which is equipped with Swiss Super-LumiNova® C3 X1 and built in a sandwich construction. Thus, the indexes are lowered into the dial.

Circula SuperSport Automatic

The inner rotating bezel and also the crown are filled with Swiss Super- LumiNova® C3. High-quality mechanical movements with automatic winding from Sellita in Switzerland are responsible for the precise time display, optionally available in ‘Top’ grade version with an extra hard Glucydur balance wheel for particularly high precision.

Circula SuperSport Automatic

The pre-order phase has now started and offers the opportunity to purchase the new SuperSport for EUR 699 (incl. VAT) / USD ~699 (excl. VAT) in the brand’s online shop by October 15th, including two straps, an H-Link steel bracelet and a Tropical rubber strap as well as free worldwide shipping. From mid-October it will cost € 100 more.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver Limited Edition

Audemars Piguet has announced a new 42 mm Royal Oak Offshore Diver limited to 300 pieces. Similarly to the three Diver models released earlier this year, this limited edition is powered by the Manufacture’s latest self-winding movement, Calibre 4308.

The Royal Oak Offshore Diver Limited Edition sports the Manufacture’s latest Diver movement and interchangeable strap system. Its two-tone case blending white gold and black ceramics is enriched with a black “Méga Tapisserie” dial highlighted with white gold and beige accents.

The Royal Oak Offshore Diver limited edition is powered by the Manufacture’s latest automatic movement with second and instant-jump date indication. Calibre 4308 is equipped with a patented setting mechanism that brings stability and precision when adjusting the watch’s function.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver Limited Edition

Its diving scale featured on the dial’s inner rotating ring is activated with a unidirectional click mechanism linked to the 10 o’clock crown. The watch’s sapphire caseback reveals Calibre 4308’s refined finishing techniques, such as “Côtes de Genève,” “traits tirés” and circular graining, as well as the new collection’s dedicated oscillating weight in blackened 22-carat pink gold.

The Royal Oak Offshore Diver is fit for underwater exploration up to a depth of 300 metres as well as for any above-ground outdoors adventures. Thanks to its 60 hours of power reserve, the watch can easily adapt to a few days rest between expeditions.

The limited edition boasts an18-carat white gold case enhanced with a black ceramic bezel and matching crowns at 3 and 10 o’clock. The sapphire and white gold caseback is engraved with “Royal Oak Offshore Limited Edition of 300 Pieces.”

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver Limited Edition

Hand-finished with an alternation of satin-brushed and polished surfaces, the case offers a refined frame to the black “Méga Tapisserie” dial adorned with 18-carat white gold hour-markers and hands. The black rotating diving scale ringis complemented with a beige 15-minute zone as well as beige Arabic numerals for a powerful contrast.

The Royal Oak Offshore Diver limited edition presents new facetted hour-markers, cut in two distinct sizes for augmented legibility. Long hour-markers indicate the quarter hours (to the exception of the 15-minute mark replaced by the date window), while shorter square hour-markers are used to mark out the 5-minute increments.

The luminescent coating on the white gold hour-markers and Royal Oak hands grant optimum visibility in the dark. The larger applied gold AP initials at 12 o’clock replace the traditional long-form signature for a sportive look down to the last detail.

Following in the footstep of the new Royal Oak Offshore Diver models released in the spring, this limited sports watch is fitted with the Manufacture’s new interchangeable strap system. The interchangeability has been directly integrated into the buckle and case’s studs, in perfect harmony with the case’s aesthetic codes.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver Limited Edition

The ease and efficiency will allow clients to change the bracelets and buckles of their new timepiece themselves with a quick click and release. The double-push system grants optimum security when the watch is worn on the wrist. The watch is fitted on a black interchangeable rubber strap, fit for the wildest outdoors adventures, while its second beige interchangeable calfskin strap will add a laid-back, yet refined look.

The 2021 assortment for the Royal Oak Offshore Diver collection also includes rubber straps in khaki, blue and grey shades, as well as two other calfskin leather straps in brown and black for more adventures on dry land.

Initially, this Royal Oak Offshore Diver Limited Edition will be sold exclusively in Japan during September 2021, before being available globally from October 2021.

ORIENT STAR Diver 1964 Limited Edition, Reference: RE-AU0501B

ORIENT STAR, celebrating its 70th anniversary in 2021, is launching the Diver 1964 model from its ORIENT STAR Sports Collection with a limited edition of just 500 pieces worldwide.

The Diver 1964 model reflects this proud history, reproducing the original design of the Olympia Calendar Diver model, released in 1964, with an upgrade to contemporary diver’s watch specifications. This exceptional model combines a vintage design with ORIENT STAR’s latest high-performance in-house movement.

ORIENT STAR Diver 1964 Limited Edition

The Diver 1964 is based on the Olympia Calendar Diver launched in 1964 after several years of development work for divers’ models that started from the early 1960s. It joins the ORIENT STAR Sports Collection, established in 2019.

The Diver 1964 reproduces the same features of the original model: a rotating bezel made of solid stainless steel, three-dimensionally cut indices, an arrow-shaped hand, and a case shape with sharp lugs, while offering significantly improved water resistance compared to the original model’s 40 meters.

ORIENT STAR Diver 1964 Limited Edition

This new model’s water resistance has been upgraded to 200 meters – compliant with ISO standards for air diving watches. Refined qualities such as a screw down crown and screw case back, a dual curved sapphire crystal with a non-reflective coating, are also required to meet the standard of authentic divers’ watches.

The mechanical movement has also been upgraded. In contrast to the hand-wound movement in the original 1964 model, this new model has a contemporary automatic movement for increased usability. This in-house caliber F6N47 provides stable high accuracy and 50-hour power reserve. Another new feature is the indicator which shows the power reserve’s remaining running time. Most ORIENT STAR models come with a power reserve indicator as standard, however it’s rare to find this feature on diver’s watches.

ORIENT STAR Diver 1964 Limited Edition

The comparatively compact 40.2 mm diameter case, the pure steel colored rotating bezel, and the black dial create an understated look, making it ideal for everyday use. The metal bracelet uses the same high-quality stainless steel (SUS316L) as the case, providing a substantial presence and a comfortable fit. The trifold clasp comes with push button, security latch and divers’ extension, making the watch practical to use for sports activities and urban life.

The Diver 1964 model is available in a worldwide limited edition of 500 pieces and each watch has a serial number engraved on the case back.

BOHEN MILLE-MER

Independent French watchmaker BOHEN presents MILLE-MER, a Swiss made automatic diving watch with a water resistance of 1,000 meters. It will be limited to 500 pieces.

Designed by Blaise-Dominique Giuliani (founder of the brand), this timepiece features a stainless steel case mounted with a 60-clcik, ceramic rotating bezel. On the reverse side, it is secured with a grade-5 titanium case back.

Its domed sapphire crystal glass with inner double AR coating provides the unobstructed view of the dial. A stand-out feature of the BOHEN MILLE-MER watch is its internal date magnifier, which is a world-premiere innovation.

BOHEN MILLE-MER automatic swiss diving watch

Usually, a date magnifier (for example the Rolex Cyclops lens) can only be glued to a flat glass. As the glass used with MILLE-MER is a curved sapphire crystal, BOHEN has developed a patented design. This innovative system features a lens magnifier connected by two bridges placed between the sapphire dome and the date window, without obstructing the movement of hands.

This 25-jewel self-winding calibre is antimagnetic and features Glucydur balance wheel and Incabloc shock proof protection system. It also features fine horology finishing methods like rhodium coating, Côtes de Genève decoration and pearled bridges. The watch is also provided with an inner antimagnetic cage for protecting the movement from electro-magnetic interferences.

BOHEN MILLE-MER watch crown

The watch is equipped with a massive, screw-down crown at 12 o’ clock and a helium release valve.

MILLE-MER features a black dial with three central hands (hour, minutes and seconds) with luminescent coating, date at 3’ clock and luminescent indexes. The hands and markers employ Superluminova X1 gel, which has better intensity and duration compare to regular luminescent coatings. To beautify the exteriors, the brand has used methods like Sallaz Polishing, embossing and deep brushing.

BOHEN MILLE-MER watch bracelet

Rated for a water resistance up to 100 ATM (1,000 meters or 3,300 ft), the BOHEN MILLE-MER watch comes fitted on a stainless Steel bracelet with integrated universal link, which allows quick change of the watch band without any tools.

Bühlmann Decompression 01

Switzerland based crowd-manufacturing company Watch Angels SA has launched a new fund-raising campaign for the Bühlmann watches brand.

This new watchmaking venture pays tribute to Albert Alois Bühlmann (1923 – 1994), the Swiss scientist known for his extensive research activities related to both medical and safety requirements of deep divers.

The first timepiece from the brand is Bühlmann Decompression 01, which incorporates the famous Bühlmann tables that are based on the decompression algorithm developed by A. Bühlmann.

Bühlmann Decompression 01 diving watch

 

Exclusively designed for professional divers, the Decompression watch features a Bühlmann 0-700 ASL decompression security stops bezel and an innovative push lock-unlock system to lock and unlock the crowns and the helium valve.

The decompression tables are indented for ensuring safety during commercial, military and recreational diving activities.

About Albert Alois Bühlmann

Born in 1923 in Berlin, Professor Albert Alois Bühlmann was a respected doctor and scientist at the University Hospital in Zürich, Switzerland. He was a world-renowned Diving Medicine Physician, and dealt with the medical conditions associated with diving and their treatment. He was a pioneer in developing Hyperbaric Chambers, Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicines, Decompression Tables and Dive Computers.

His decompression model and gas mixture procedure were utilized efficiently during a number of record-breaking diving and hyperbaric experiments.

These include 1959 Lake Zürich, Switzerland (120M), 1961 Brissago, Switzerland (220M), 1962 Catalina Islands, California (311M), 1966 Porto San Stefano, Italy (220M exposure to saturation), 1969 Alverstoke, UK (350M exposure to saturation) and the 575M record in the Zürich hyperbaric chamber in 1981.

Professional divers play an important role in the offshore oil and natural gas exploration industry. In 1963, Bühlmann had entered into a partnership with Anglo-Dutch multinational oil and gas company Shell and Micoperi to develop safe decompression procedures for professional divers on long-term dives to great depths.

Now owned by the Norwegian business group Protan, Micoperi is an Italian engineering and installation company specialized in the offshore oil & gas industry. A notable result of this collaboration was the Capshell in 1966, a hyperbaric chamber designed for long-term under water experiments.

In the early 1970s, he developed altitude-adjusted decompression tables for the diving activities conducted in the lakes located at high attitudes. In the meantime, he also supervised to replace the existing hyperbaric chamber with a new one in the University Hospital of Zurich.

Put into operation in 1975, the new Druckkammer (hyperbaric chamber) had capability to perform dive experiments up to a depth of 1000m. Its ancestor’s diving depth was limited to 300 meters. Bühlmann used these hyperbaric chambers to calculate decompression algorithm.

In the 1980s, Bühlmann ventured into the field of decompression computers. He had collaborated with companies like Divetronics, Dynatron AG and Uwatec AG for developing dive computers. For example, his calculation model ZHL-16 was used to develop the Deco-Brain II dive computer by Divetronics. The diver computers born from his collaboration with Dynatron AG and Uwatec AG were Aladin (1987), Aladin Pro (1988) and Aladin Air X (1994).

Bühlmann passed away on 16 March 1994.

The ZH-L16A calculation model was published in 1986. His decompression tables are still popular and widely used. Many dive computers use variations of the decompression algorithms created by Bühlmann.

Delma Shell Star Decompression Timer

The family-owned, independent Swiss watch brand Delma revives their iconic Shell Star collection by presenting a new diving watch with the Decompression Timer.

Delma’s professional diving watch Shell Star was introduced in 1975. The newly released Shell Star Decompression Timer is a technical, durable and stylish deep diver.

Delma Shell Star Decompression Timer

The functionality of the Shell Star Decompression Timer is based on research of the 1950s and 60s by Swiss dive pioneers Hannes Keller and Albert Bühlmann. Both former students at the University of Zurich, their combined expertise in mathematics, physics and diving motivated them to perform revolutionary research in the diving field. They recognized the impact of altitude on decompression and developed tables with specific gas mixtures for different elevations.

Delma Shell Star Decompression Timer

Bühlmann focused on identifying the correct combination of gases while Keller performed experimental dives to test their theories. The resulting tables enabled safe decent at sea level and in mountainous terrain and were even adopted by the Swiss military in 1972. Still today considered to be the most intuitive of their kind, they uniquely take into account the need for multiple decompression stops for deeper and longer dives.

Delma Shell Star Decompression Timer

The Delma Shell Star Decompression Timer is optimized for diving with air breathing at 0-700 meters above sea level. The diver uses the unidirectional bezel to time his dive. The vertical scale on the dial at 12 o‘clock corresponds to their dive depth in meters or feet.

It enables the diver to clearly see if their dive is within the no-decompression limit (NDL) where no decompression is required or whether decompression stops are necessary. The NDL time is reflected by the white markings on the rings, while the amount of decompression stops and their duration are shown by the numbers.

Delma Shell Star Decompression Timer

Unlike other comparable timepieces, DELMA’s Shell Star Decompression Timer utilizes Keller and Bühlmann’s research to clearly display when multiple decompression stops are needed for dives at sea level and beyond. Dressed in a robust 44mm diameter case and water resistant to 500 meters (1650 ft), this automatic diving timepiece also features a helium escape valve.

Delma Shell Star Decompression Timer

The  Shell Star Decompression Timer watch is offered with a black, blue or orange unidirectional bezel with either a stainless steel bracelet or rubber strap.

Delma Shell Star Decompression Timer

All models are automatic and contain a SW200 movement with date and DELMA customized rotor. Key historical characteristics include a spade central seconds hand, the railway track and orange and white indexes. The stainless steel case is sealed with a transparent case back revealing the intricate movement.

TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 New Additions

Following the launch of the new TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 series during Watches and Wonders Geneva in April, TAG Heuer has released three references, including a new iteration of a TAG Heuer icon, the all-black, lume-dialled TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 Night Diver.

TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 New Additions 2021

These three TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 models take the collection to 11 references. All three new models are non-limited and go into the core collection, each with a 43 mm stainless steel case and rubber strap equipped with TAG Heuer’s innovative adjustable folding clasp.

TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 Calibre 5 Automatic black dial Reference WBP201A.FT6197

The new black and blue versions pick up on the bracelet models introduced at Watches and Wonders: both are colour-themed with matching black or blue dials, ceramic bezel inserts and rubber straps.

TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 Calibre 5 Automatic blue dial Reference WBP201B.FT6198

The standout model of the release is the black DLC-coated Night Diver. Its stainless-steel case, bezel, crown, caseback and clasp are all coated in matt black diamond-like carbon, known as DLC, a high- performance, hard-wearing finish designed for use in extreme conditions. The bezel insert is highly resistant black ceramic.

TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 Night Diver - Calibre 5 Automatic, Reference WBP201D.FT6197

The TAG Heuer “Night Diver” was first introduced in the mid- 1980s. Loved by active, style-conscious watch buyers who push their limits,  it became one of the most celebrated sports watches of its era.

TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 Night Diver - Calibre 5 Automatic, Reference WBP201D.FT6197

TAG Heuer has created a faithful update to this much-loved watch, retaining and improving signature details such as the famous 12-sided bezel and the dial’s horizontal engraved lines to produce a refined, highly versatile modern classic.

TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 Night Diver - Calibre 5 Automatic, Reference WBP201D.FT6197

The Night Diver’s other signature feature is its fully luminescent dial, which is coated in green Super- LumiNova® to deliver exceptional glow-in-the-dark performance. To ensure ultimate legibility in extreme low-light conditions, the watch’s minute and central seconds hands are filled with blue lume to contrast with the green of the dial.

TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 Night Diver - Calibre 5 Automatic, Reference WBP201D.FT6197

The hour hand and octagonal hour markers at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock are filled with green lume, and the remaining octagonal hour markers are all edged with black lacquer. The triangle on the unidirectional rotating bezel at 12, which is crucial to accurately and safely measure dive times, is also filled with striking blue lume to match the blue of the minute and central seconds hands.

Each of the new TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 references comes with a beautifully engineered integrated rubber strap equipped with TAG Heuer’s newly developed adjustable clasp system.

TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 Night Diver - Calibre 5 Automatic, Reference WBP201D.FT6197

These straps will be cut to length as part of a fitting process at a TAG Heuer boutique or by an authorised dealer. The wearer will then have the freedom to adjust their strap to accommodate a wetsuit, or simply to reflect changes in ambient conditions that make the wrist expand or contract.

TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 New Clasp

The fine-tuning system developed by TAG Heuer allows this adjustment can be made to extremely small tolerances. This is done by pinching and sliding the button on the side of the clasp.

TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 New Additions

The clasp also features double safety push-buttons that prevent it from being unlocked by accident. It’s this level of utility that underscores the Aquaracer Professional 300 series’ ultimate luxury tool watch status.

TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 New Additions

As with the eight pieces in the launch collection, the three new references pick up on the six signature features that have defined TAG Heuer dive watches since 1983: a unidirectional rotating bezel, a screw-down crown, water resistance to at least 200 metres, luminous markings, a scratch-resistant crystal and a double safety clasp.

TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 Calibre 5 Automatic black dial Reference WBP201A.FT6197

The form carries a number of further details that enhance its luxury feel and performance. The 12 sides of the bezel are all faceted for grip, the crown is protected to prevent accidental damage and there’s a magnifying glass over the date, which is integrated into the underside of the sapphire crystal, making it smooth to the touch.

TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 Calibre 5 Automatic black dial Reference WBP201A.FT6197

The dial with its trademark horizontally engraved lines have also been refined for the new generation of watches and are now set slightly further apart than in previous Aquaracer iterations, giving the watches their elegant, sophisticated look.

As with the launch collection, the three new TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 references are powered by TAG Heuer’s Calibre 5 automatic movement. They all have solid casebacks stamped with the famous scaphander diving suit, complete with a 12-sided faceplate. All TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 models are water-resistant to 300 metres (30 bar, 1,000 feet).

In April, TAG Heuer also introduced a highly collectible limited-edition version of the TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 at launch to both complement the core collection and salute the design’s wonderful heritage. It’s called the TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 Tribute to Ref. 844.

DOXA SUB 600T ‘Pacific’ Limited Edition

Unveiled at the Geneva Watch Days exhibition, the SUB 600T ‘Pacific’ Limited Edition is a modern interpretation of DOXA’s SUB 600T diving watch.

DOXA SUB 600T ‘Pacific’ Limited Edition

First introduced in the ‘80s, the SUB 600T is one of the iconic DOXA dive models. Now, it is reborn in a brushed titanium case with ceramic bezel inlay bezel and comes with a dial colour in a shade of blue matched to the Pacific Ocean.

DOXA SUB 600T ‘Pacific’ Limited Edition

The SUB 600T ‘pacific’ diving watch will be limited to 200 pieces. This series is released in collaboration with Time+Tide, DOXA’s partner in Australia.

DOXA SUB 600T ‘Pacific’ Limited Edition

The ‘Pacific’ limited edition SUB 600T’s brushed titanium 40mm case is topped by a sapphire crystal. This professional grade diving watch has a water resistance up to 600 meters (60 bar, about 1970 feet).

DOXA SUB 600T ‘Pacific’ Limited Edition

The crown is positioned at 4 o’clock and the patented unidirectional ceramic rotating bezel, with dive time in minutes and depth in feet, prepares for safe ascents without decompression stops.

DOXA SUB 600T ‘Pacific’ Limited Edition

The dial in ‘Pacific Ocean blue’ is a first for DOXA, and it evokes that ultramarine shimmer of the waters around Australia, the home of Time+Tide.

DOXA SUB 600T ‘Pacific’ Limited Edition

All dive-related indications have a Super-LumiNova® luminescent coating, including the distinctive ‘shark’s tooth’ hour markers at 3, 6, 9 and 12 o’clock for optimal legibility in low-light conditions. This new watch comes with a tone-on-tone rubber strap to match the Pacific Blue dial.

DOXA SUB 600T ‘Pacific’ Limited Edition

This model also introduces a new type of clasp, a DOXA premiere: though it looks like a pin buckle, it is actually a folding buckle – here in brushed titanium – that allows for easy adjustment to the wearer’s wrist. The clasp sports the exclusive ‘DOXA Fish’ symbol.

Oris Aquis Date Upcycle

Honouring its contributions towards the protection of environment, independent climate action experts ClimatePartner has recently certified Swiss watch brand Oris as climate neutral.

To mark the start of this new chapter, the independent Swiss company is introducing the Aquis Date Upcycle, a version of Oris’ high-performance diver’s watch with a colourful dial made of recycled PET plastic.

Oris Aquis Date Upcycle

Oris, together with its global network of partners and suppliers, has been taking part in World Cleanup Day for a number of years. Its new partner #tide has produced special Oris ’Cleanup Bags’ made from recycled ocean plastic for supporting the Swiss brand’s clean-up missions across the world.

#tide is a specialist plastic recycling company based in Switzerland that uses an innovative production method to turn 100 per cent ocean-bound plastic into a new premium raw material.

#tide is committed to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and has saved 15 million PET plastic bottles from entering the ocean. Its recycling processes save 52 per cent of the energy used in creating virgin plastics, and its production methods cause 79 per cent less greenhouse gas emissions.

Oris Aquis Date Upcycle

The Aquis Date Upcycle is available with either a 41.5 mm or 36.5 mm case, both with recycled ocean-plastic dials. Each watch will be unique because the plastic recycling process produces random patterns, meaning no two dials will be the same.

Beyond the dial, the watches share their architecture with the popular Aquis Date 41.5 mm and 36.5 mm models. Both have a stainless steel case and a unidirectional rotating diver’s bezel with a scratch-resistant grey ceramic insert.

Oris Aquis Date Upcycle

They also have a stainless steel bracelet with a clasp extension system, crown protectors, a screw-down crown and a Swiss Made automatic mechanical movement. Every watch comes in a grey presentation box made from sustainable and recyclable paper.

Christopher Ward C60 #tide

Christopher Ward’s best-selling C60 Trident line welcomes C60 #tide, a new timepiece created in partnership with the brand’s newest Swiss-based supply partner – #tide ocean material®. This is an important step from Christopher Ward to tackle the rising levels of ocean plastic.

Christopher Ward C60 #tide

#tide upcycle ocean-bound plastic waste and convert it into a premium raw material produced as yarn which Christopher Ward have harnessed for a new #tide strap collection showcased on the impressive new C60 #tide. This #tide ocean raw material is also produced as granules (for plastic injection) which features on the C60 #tide’s deep-stamped, screw down caseback and the #tide symbol features on the crown.

Christopher Ward C60 #tide

By training and paying fishermen to collect, sort, process and transport ocean-bound plastic, #tide’s work makes both ecological and social sense – helping to quell the rising tide of plastic waste entering our oceans and protecting the livelihoods of local fishermen and communities at threat from overfishing.

Christopher Ward C60 #tide

Furthermore, Christopher Ward and #tide will together donate £5 from every #tide strap that’s sold – either on a watch, or individually – to the Blue Marine Foundation, to support their vital work in marine conservation.

Following the success of last year’s limited edition C60 BLUE, the C60 #tide and #tide strap collection were the next logical steps for the brand. In keeping with the rest of the C60 Trident range, the C60 #tide’s rugged good looks also have a distinctive elegance – its C60 316L steel case with flowing Light- catcherTM  lines looks just as good under a shirt cuff as it does with a rash vest – and it’s watertight to 600m.

Christopher Ward C60 #tide

There are however some discreet but notable differences from the rest of the range; the organic wave pattern and use of Super-LumiNova® Grade X1 BL C1 gives the new C60 #tide’s sapphire dial a 3D look which glows in darkness but maintains a cool and discreet look in daylight – reminiscent of bio-luminescent algae. Like other Tridents it also has a fully-lumed ceramic bezel, which adds to the coruscating effect.

Christopher Ward C60 #tide

The NEW C60 #tide houses the chronometer certified Sellita SW200 COSC, a self-winding movement known for its  accuracy and reliability. The deep-stamped 3D trident on the caseback – typical of the range – is also replaced here with a deep-stamped #tide mark and a second blue ring of #tide recycled ocean-bound plastic.

Christopher Ward C60 #tide

The C60 #tide is available from £895 on a #tide strap or £1,000 on a bracelet. The #tide straps (in blue, black and orange) are available across the Christopher Ward collection.

Christopher Ward C60 #tide

A first in the luxury watch industry, Christopher Ward’s sustainable packaging, constructed from 95% bio-degradable materials and the brand’s commitment to environmentally responsible shipping, helps to reduce the carbon footprint of every single watch sold.

Magrette Moana Pacific Waterman Kaitiaki

New Zealand based watch brand Magrette has expanded their exclusive Art Collection by presenting Kaitiaki, an artistically decorated watch based on the brand’s Moana Pacific diving watch. Limited to 10 pieces, the Magrette Moana Pacific Waterman Kaitiaki watch reminds us the need to protect the oceans and the ecosystem surrounding them.

Kaitiaki is a Māori expression used for the concept of guardianship, for the sky, the sea, and the land. Magrette’s Art Collection offers exclusive timepieces inspired by the Māori culture and myths. Each creation from the Art Series is individually hand-engraved by Christchurch, New Zealand artist Andrew Biggs. Kaitiaki is the first Moana Pacific Waterman to be included in this family.

The motif used on the Magrette Moana Pacific Waterman Kaitiaki watch features a manta ray as its central figure — with the face of Tangaroa. On either side of Tangaroa are the endangered albatross and red-billed gull.

The sides of the lugs feature Manaia offering protection to these seabirds, and the tops feature the face of Tangaroa. According to Māori mythology, Tangaroa is the god of the ocean. Manaia is a mythological creature in Māori culture, and is a common motif in Māori carving and jewellery.
