Although for a great deal of customers the German brand H2O is quite obscure and, perhaps, even unknown, the company still has a number of die-hard fans. The reason for such intense love is, of course, an almost infinite number of customization options that they offer with every model. This new H2O Orca Dive Black DLC Automatic, for example, is available with four bezel variations, three front crystals, seven colors for dials, four hands finishes, and at least three different straps
The German watchmaking specialist has recently expanded its "Tactical" collection of extreme divers with a new model. Called Dievas Tactical Maya, the new diving watch offers all the usual stuff, like an oversized, ruggedized body, extra-bold hands and numerals, as well as impressive water resistance rating.
The German brand Dievas, the one that uses its own cases with ETA movements ticking inside them, has refreshed its Dievas Vortex Professional 500M diving watch that was released two years ago with a new, even stealthier model.
Considered by many watch enthusiasts as an entry-level "Swiss Made" watch of choice, the famous Trident C60 has recently got significantly smaller. As the bulky 42 millimeters of the original model were often too massive for buyers of the skinny type, this Chr. Ward C61 Trident-Pro will probably fit any medium- and small-sized wrist. And if you think that orange is just too bright for you (and it is, just trust me), there are two more color combinations to consider.
Sinn, a German watchmaking brand, which is mostly known for its professional-grade diving watches, starts taking pre-orders for its new Sinn U200 B (EZM 8) Special Edition timepiece for hard core diving enthusiasts. Available for orders from October and till 31 December 2013, the new diver features Sinn's signature styling and comes in a nice presentation box with a spare NATO-style textile strap and a set of instruments to make installing the band easier.
The Eberhard & Co. Scafodat 500, a professional diving watch that (if memory serves me well) was first introduced back in 2006 or 2005, was slightly updated for this year. Although, to be frank, I cannot really see any noticeable differences between the ref. 41025 2013 model and previous iterations of the watch, the timekeeper still deserves a mention now, when thousands of recreational divers still sits on the fence trying to choose among dozens of great mechanical diving watches that are available both online, and an numerous boutiques.
Archimede Pilot 42 comes in the same body, but offers a more simplified layout of its dial
Like most blues songs that use the omnipresent 12-bar chord progression can be either extremely boring or delightfully original, so can be thousands of wristwatches that feature the classic combo of complete calendar and moon phase display. Although the new Baume & Mercier Clifton Complete Calendar & Moonphase (refs. MOA10055 & MOA10316) automatic watch that was presented back in January at the last SIHH 2013 event features the excruciatingly tiresome layout that we have already seen thousands of times, it somehow manages to be a real treat for the eye of an enthusiast.
Here comes another good one from the young American watchmakers. Called Deep Blue Daynight Recon T100 White, the new semi-professional diver gives you an easily recognizable design with elegant dial sporting luminous tritium tubes and a pretty much impressive water resistance rating of 500 meters.
The Swiss brand has recently reintroduced its Avenger Seawolf "professional" diver as a limited edition model. While normally available only in polished stainless steel, this new watch comes in a special, hardened steel body that, thanks to high concentration of carbon within its surface, looks almost black. Aptly named Breitling Avenger Seawolf Blacksteel Code Yellow, the watch features a winning combination of colors and textures that make it an almost ideal watch for a person looking for a military-styled diver with a character.
