We have decided this month to have a review and find some great diving watches available online. After looking through many different brands and researching technical information regarding each watch, we put together some great samples of awesome diving watches. We hope you agree.
The Rolex Deepsea
Designed for extreme underwater exploration and uses the patented Ringlock System for the most advanced divers in the world. This beautifully designed watch can withstand the colossal pressure of the sea 3.900 meters (12,000feet) deep. Its finished with a black cerachrom disc, titanium caseback and white hands and dial.
The Rolex Deepsea is also equipped with a unique bracelet, featuring a double extension system for a perfect fit over any diving suit. If that wasn’t enough to wet your tastes buds this watch is also equipped with a Helium Valve. If the outside of the watch reaches 3 to 5 bars the valve opens to release helium stored in the watch. This pressure system keeps the watch safe from decompression damage.
The Citizen Promaster Depth Meter Chronograph
This little charmer from Citizen looks very eye catching with its blue ticks of colour throughout the watch design. Some of the more advance features like not having to replace batteries and maximum depth memory is to be honest revolutionary.
The watch also boasts a non reflective crystal, power reserve indicator, stainless steel black, blue or grey Ion Plating case. The case is 49mm and has a depth display of 125 feet. The Promaster is water resistant to 666ft (200m).
We think this is a worthy contender as an awesome divers watch.

The dial and hands are designed for clear legibility at daylight, at night and under water.
