Diving Watches that Make a Splash

Posted by Chris on Friday, May 21, 2021

Diving watches, often referred to as diver’s or dive watches, are exactly what the name implies. They’re robust pieces made to survive deep water pressures and were originally intended for that purpose. 

These days, divers are usually using dive computers when exploring the aquatic depths, but diving watches persist as a staple in watch fashion.

Diving watches usually share a few common traits. They’re generally large, and they usually, but not always, feature a sportier, more complicated look than the average dress watch. 

However, the most important characteristic of a diving watch is that it must be rated for at least 100 meters of water resistance to earn its mark in accordance with the ISO 6425 standard

So let’s strap on our snorkels and flippers and take a look at some of our favorite diving watches. 

The Oris Divers Sixty-Five Green Dial 

Remember what we said earlier about diving watches usually being large and having a sporty, complex look? The Oris Divers Sixty-Five tosses that all out the window in favor of a classic understated aesthetic. The only complication to be found on the gorgeous green dial is the date. 

Don’t let the simple look fool you, though. This watch is certified for 100m of water resistance and ready to brave the depths with it’s compact, no-nonsense craftsmanship. It just happens to look so classy that you can wear it to a wedding, too.
