The IWC Aquatimer Automatic 2000 with a black-and-yellow dial (Ref. IW358001) was announced shortly before Christmas and will be presented at the upcoming SIHH in Geneva.

Dive Watch Wednesday: New Unlimited Versions of the Sinn U212

In the past, German watch manufacturer Sinn would occasionally release several highly sought-after limited editions of its U-series of dive watches with an increased diameter of 47 mm.

Dive Watch Wednesday: Watch Spotting in Dubai

Last week we at DiveIntoWatches.com had the chance to spend a couple of hours in Dubai’s larger shopping malls, and since most of the watch brands there are available in flagship stores only, we visited many of these retailers in the hopes of finding not only the current range, but also a couple of watches...

Dive Watch Wednesday: Introducing the Delta Dive from Georg Jensen

In 2014, the Danish watch brand Georg Jensen launched a 42-mm dive watch powered by an ETA 2824 movement. The surprisingly heavy Georg Jensen Delta Dive (named after the fourth letter of the Greek alphabet) offers 200-meter water resistance, a sapphire crystal with magnifying lens, a black ceramic bezel insert, a steel bracelet (without divers’...

Dive Watch Wednesday: Real-Life Photos of the Sinn T1 and T2 B

In 2012, German watch manufacturer Sinn released two new dive watches with cases made of titanium (instead of the heavier “submarine steel” the brand normally uses for its dive watches, such as the U1, U2, and U1000): the 1,000-meter water-resistant T1, with a 45-mm diameter; and the 4-mm smaller but twice as water-resistant T2 (also...

Dive Watch Wednesday: 3 More Votes for the Tudor Pelagos

Usually, dive watches do not perform very well when it comes to the awards that honor the watch industry. They rarely compete on a level playing field with their much more complicated counterparts, and we probably can also agree that as a category, dive watches tend to be a bit more restricted when it comes...

Dive Watch Wednesday: Another Reason to be Impressed by the IWC Aquatimer 2000

In 2014, IWC introduced the completely re-designed IWC Aquatimer collection, with the Aquatimer 2000 (Ref. 358002) as its most performance-oriented representative: its 2,000-meter water-resistance, titanium case, in-house IWC 80110 caliber, and new “SafeDive” bezel system made it one of the most interesting dive watch releases of that year. But what may be the most interesting...

Dive Watch Wednesday: The New Girard-Perregaux Sea Hawk with Vintage Lume

At the end of 2012, Girard-Perregaux relaunched the Sea Hawk dive watch collection. The 1,000-meter water-resistant diver (or 300-meter, if you opt for the black ceramic case) was updated with a rather progressive case design but still managed to keep the DNA of its impressive predecessors, one of them being the first dive watch with...

Dive Watch Wednesday: New Dials for the Sinn T1 and T2

German watch manufacturer Sinn just released a blue-dial option for the brand’s only dive watches with titanium cases, the Sinn T1 (45-mm diameter and water-resistant to 1,000 meters) and Sinn T2 (41-mm diameter and water-resistant up to 2,000 meters). Both were introduced in 2013, at the time only available with black dials. Both the T1...

Dive Watch Wednesday: Introducing the Technos Acqua 800 ATM

The recently revived, Brazilian-owned Swiss watch brand Technos seems to be focusing on dive watches for the Brazilian market — at least to judge by its URL and the language used on its website — and it looks like the brand is quite serious about them. Here’s a glimpse of its flagship model, the Acqua. The...
