Whether you are just a sports nerd or you are a diving fanatic, you can be sure of one thing. Luxury dive watches find applications more on land than in water. So, off late many famous watch manufacturers are trying to include as many land-based features as possible. However, they do make sure that all the technicalities required under the water are up to the expectation. Making it look more attractive and the extra features have certainly drawn a lot more customers into the deep dive watches market. Lets take a deep dive about luxury dive watches for men.
Today we take a look at some of the best luxury dive watches in the market that can function even when reaching depths of up to 3 miles. However, what makes them more special is they can also be used as a sports watch that you can use daily. Let’s dive in without any further delay.
Luxury Dive Watches For Men: Breitling Superocean
Superocean is not a new name in the deep dive watch market. They have been making quality products since the 1950s. However, what’s unique about the latest edition of Superocean is that it comes with an Econyl strap. Econyl is made by recycling old fishing nets and was invented by Kelly Slater.
Superocean partnered with Kelly to come up with this incredible product. It has 12 hours and 30 minutes counter with display to show the exact date and day. The dial is blue and goes well with the stainless steel case. The cherry on the cake is the Super-Luminova coated dot you can see near the 12 o clock hand. You can make the Superocean yours at about 7000 dollars.
Luxury Dive Watches For Men: IWC Aquatimer:
IWC happens to be celebrating its fiftieth anniversary and keeping that in mind, they released the Aquatimer. It comes with a perpetual calendar, a flying chronograph, and it is made of Ceratanium. Ceratanium is a combination of ceramic and titanium. Ceramic is known to be scratch resistant and titanium for its lightweight characteristics.
Ceratanium combines the best of both worlds to give you the absolute best. The perpetual calendar displays the month, day, and also leap years. It also comes with a Safe drive system with external and internal bezels that rotate. The IWC Aquatimer is a touch expensive and can be owned at about 45 grand.
Ulysse Nardin Diver:
Ulysse has always had a deeper connection with the sea. It has its roots in chronometers. The newest Chronometer in Nardin Diver has an inverted bezel that is concave in shape, and it measures your diving time. You will also find a power reserve near the twelve o clock needle, which is unique to Nardin.
Some limited editions also have the symbol of a great white shark on the casing if you are ready to shell a little bit more money. There is also an open case back version available, which I got to see recently in the Monaco Yacht Show. The Nardin Diver can be yours at about 9000 dollars, and it is one of the best in the price range.
