Due to the fact that the development of most early dive watches was heavily influenced, or even directly initiated, by armed services around the world, it is no surprise that a large number of these watches were in fact used and issued by them as well. It did, however, come as a surprise to us here at Diveintowatches.com that even the Swiss Armed Forces at one point issued a very small number of its own Swiss-made dive watches. … [Read more...]
Doxa is a Swiss watch brand. Doxa was founded in 1889 in Neuchatel. Georges Ducommun (1868-1936), the founder of Doxa, was born in Le Locle among the Jura hills of canton Neuchatel in Switzerland. He was one of 13 children of a poor family. At the age of 12, he became an apprentice in a manufacture specialised in casing-up watch movements. He started his own watch repair business when he was 20. He worked hard to set up his business, walking the 10 kilometers to La Chaux-de Fonds to deliver his products personally, even in the depth of winter. The success of his watches enabled him to live in Chateau des Monts, today home of the world-renowned Le Locle horological museum.

Depending on where you plan on diving, chances are that you will wear a wetsuit or, in some cases, even a dry suit. Both increase your wrist size substantially, which is why a dive watch usually features a deployment clasp with a divers' extension, or even comes with an extra strap piece that can be attached to the strap buckle when worn over a dry suit (e.g. the unique Citizen Promaster 1000, which has been previously reviewed by WatchTime). A regular clasp extension usually doesn’t add … [Read more...]

Today Mr. Ducommun’s former home is Switzerland’s largest horological museum, and the gas pumps can still be found there. His passion led Ducommun to design and development an 8-day movement to power the dashboard clocks of the legendary Bugatti automobiles. … [Read more...]
