Swiss-engineered chronographs are the choice for sportsmen and adventure-seekers alike. From auto racing to aviation, sailing to deep-sea diving, competitors count on a tough, precise timepiece to measure their performances under all kinds of conditions. A built-in 1/10th-of-a-second stopwatch, for example, enables you to keep up with your lap times, track your tack times or, even more critically if you’re a SCUBA buff, measure your remaining supply of oxygen. Until now, the lowest price for a Swiss dive chronograph was over two grand.
Well, since the difference between first and everyone else can be measured by time, we decided to set a world record of our own. That’s comparable to running a one-minute mile… pole vaulting 46 feet… winning the Indy 500 by 100 laps. In other words, it’s not just a record, it’s an astounding record!
Talk about being able to take the pressure, this watch is water-resistant down to 660 feet or 20 atmospheres, a feat facilitated by a hardened sapphire crystal and screw-down back. The rotating bezel allows you to track time in two ways. The luminous hands and number markers afford clearer visibility in low-light surroundings whether underwater or in a dim cockpit. Then again, given the Swiss Dive’s elegant shimmer-on-midnight palette and two-tone stainless link bracelet, it might well be a romantic restaurant.
