Deep Blue Daynight 32 T100 Automatic Diver American

The 2013 Deep Blue Daynight 32 T100 brings you all features that you may expect from the American brand: impressive water resistance that makes suitable for real diving, sturdy body that was probably inspired by a sledge hammer, a reliable self-winding movement made in another country, and the usual set of tritium tubes that glow brightly virtually for decades without needing any recharging.

Panerai Luminor Marina 8 Days Oro Rosso (Ref. PAM00511) Swiss

Panerai has recently its growing range of in-house movements with yet another nice job. Called Caliber P.5000, the new hand-wound engine offers an impressive combination of beautifully laconic decoration with surprisingly efficient design and impressive power reserve. The first timekeeper to be equipped with the new caliber happened to be the new Panerai Luminor Marina 8 Days Oro Rosso (PAM 511) that was presented in New York in July 2013.

2013 Alpina Extreme Diver 300M Automatic (Ref. AL-525LBO4V26 / AL-525LBO4V26B /AL-525LBO4V26B2) Swiss

Alpina Geneve has released yet another update to its Extreme Diver 300M collection of cushion-shaped divers. After a mild facelift to its chronograph that was revealed in May during Baselworld 2013 event, the Swiss-based company turned its attention to the three-hander version of the diver. Just like the previous iteration, the 2013 Alpina Extreme Diver 300M collection (Refs. AL-525LBO4V26, AL-525LBO4V26B & AL-525LBO4V26B2) will be available in three versions that will differ only in the way the gadget is secured on your wrist.

Linde Werdelin Oktopus II Titanium Double Date Red Limited Edition Swiss

The mildly refreshed Linde Werdelin Oktopus II Titanium Double Date collection now comes in a flashy new color of lipstick red. The color is not limited to just the dial and the thick rubber strap, but also decorates the gaskets between eight steel screws and the black ceramic bezel of the piece. And if you get tired of so much red on your wrist, the rubber band can be easily swapped for a more discrete black textile strap that comes free of charge.

Alpina Extreme Diver 300 Automatic Chronograph Swiss

Back in 2012, Alpina has presented its rugged-looking Extreme Diver 300 Automatic three-hander. For this year, the Swiss-based brand updated the collection with a chronograph version predictably calling it "Alpina Extreme Diver 300 Automatic Chronograph". Although the function is superfluous even for an amateur diver (I can't imagine a guy going underwater without an electronic diving computer), the mechanical movement that powers it is based on a legendary workhorse, which is known for its bullet-proof reliability and adequate accuracy.

Alpina Sailing Yachttimer Countdown Limited Edition Swiss

Officially presented during the Baselworld 2013 trade show, this Alpina Sailing Yachttimer Countdown (ref. AL-880LBG4V6) builds on the lessons learned after the introduction of their earlier Extreme 40 Sailing Regatta Timer that was first revealed back in 2012. Although powered by the same self-winding movement and sporting the same body, the new version offers a completely different (and quite attractive, too) dial layout.

JeanRichard Aquascope Diver Monocoque Swiss

With its new JeanRichard Aquascope Diver Monocoque, the Swiss brand successfully bridges the stylistic gap between its original Aquascope and the newer Highlands collections. Besides the refreshed dial, the 2013 version of the Aquascope Monocoque has also received the same self-winding movement that powers the new limited edition Highlands CDC Carbon that was released last month.

Limes Endurance Leviathan 300M Diving German

Speaking the same easily recognizable design language that we have already seen last year when the German brand introduced its "professional" Endurance Neptun 2 1000m (ref. U8777-LA3.1) diver, the 2012 Limes Endurance Leviathan automatic diver comes in a slightly larger body, but features a more "civil" -more casual, if you like- appearance thanks to the new bezel that, while being less ahem technocratic, is still ergonomic thanks to its prominent notches providing easy grip, as well as the familiar Rolex-style diving scale that makes it easier to use the watch as rudimentary timer not only deep underwater, but also doing more mundane tasks, like cooking eggs and this sort of things.

Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 Amagnetic Titanium (Ref. PAM 389) Swiss

At the annual SIHH 2013 trade show, the Italians have officially introduced their Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 Amagnetic Titanium (Ref. PAM389) automatic diver. Despite being their first attempt at making a timekeeper possessing antimagnetic properties, the new member of the Luminor Submersible collection offers an impressive level of resistance to magnetic fields of whole 40,000 A/m.

Ball Watch Engineer Master II 300M Diver Automatic Swiss

The year of updates continues. This time the American watchmaker Ball Watches has presented its new Ball Engineer Master II Diver (ref. DM2020A-PA-BKGR). Like the similarly named line of timekeepers from IWC, the Master II comes with a magnetically shielded, shock-resistant movement, but also adds to the mix a massive, rugged-looking body designed to withstand pressures up to 30 ATM. Coupled with almost unrivaled legibility of a tritium-lighted dial and an inner diving scale, it indeed makes an impression of a winner.
