The Grand Seiko Hi-Beat 36000 Professional 600m Diver’s

The Grand Seiko Hi-Beat 36000 Professional 600m Diver’s

Grand Seiko has undergone drastic changes ever since it separated from Seiko. With the Grand Seiko Hi-Beat 36000 Professional 600m Diver’s, it wonderfully showcases its new identity. For one, the watch boasts a large case at 46.9mm and thickness of 17mm. Grand Seiko’s expertise can also be seen through the watch’s 9S hi-beat caliber and dial, which is made purely from iron to protect the movement from magnetic fields. The watch comes in two variations: one with a black dial that will be a permanent part of the Grand Seiko collection as well as one with a blue dial that is offered with an extra-strength silicone strap. The latter is part of Grand Seiko’s limited editions, with only 500 units produced.

Blancpain Tribute to Fifty Fathoms MIL-SPEC

Blancpain Tribute to Fifty Fathoms MIL-SPEC

There’s an incredible and long history behind the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms MIL-SPEC. One of its most prominent moments of fame was when it introduced the circular water-tightness indicator, which gives the wearer a signal if liquid leaks into the watch case by changing the disk color at 6 o’clock from white to red. It became so popular, in fact, that the Fifty Fathoms became standard-issue for American combat swimmers. The new Blancpain tribute to Fifty Fathoms MILSPEC features a platinum alloy and solid gold winding rotor along with a Blancpain logo that is visible through the clear sapphire case back. In addition, the balance spring is crafted from silicon, which allows it to be much lighter, more shock-resistant and impermeable to magnetic fields.

Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Acciaio – 42mm

Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Acciaio – 42mm

One of the things that make Panerai truly distinguishable is its Italian heritage. Even in the Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Acciaio diver’s watch, you can see from afar that there’s an indescribable Italian aesthetic to it. Launched in two versions, red gold and stainless steel case (pictured), the design follows the classic Panerai Submersible design, with a unidirectional rotating bezel and the lever device protecting the winding crown. But what sets this watch apart from its predecessors is the 42mm case, as opposed to its usual 47mm case. The watch also sports a clear design with its black background, while the Panerai blue color on the seconds hands provides a luxurious touch to the design.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver

Ever since its introduction in 1993, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore series has been very popular among watch enthusiasts for its bold and thick design that screams adventure. Just last year, Audemars Piguet introduced the Diver Chronograph edition that’s highly noticeable with its vibrant dial and straps. And this year, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver is reintroduced as a non-chronograph model. Available in colors including dark blue, lime green and bright orange, the new Royal Oak Offshore Diver models are stylishly complemented with dials and rubber straps in matching colors. Naturally, the new model still retains many elements of its predecessor. This includes the eight-screwed steel octagon bezel and the Méga Tapisserie pattern.
