Luxury watches can be divided into many categories. These categories are dress watches, jewelry watches, tool watches, aviation watches, complication watches, and last but not least, the one we would be focusing on, dive watches. Dive watches are very unique in the sense that they are the best example of what watchmaking can achieve when the right tools are used. The watch industry is full of dive watches but we will be talking about the best of the best. Take a look.
The legacy of the Rolex Submariner is a spotless and irrefutable. There is nothing that one can possibly say to prove otherwise. The Submariner is a watch that has seen decades’ worth of innovation and developments. The Submariner was the first watch ever to offer a water resistance of 100 meters. It basically started the whole dive watch genre.
Omega is a top class watchmaker with multiple popular references under its belt. The watches that Omega creates are nothing but masterpieces. The Swiss watchmaker is a behemoth as well as a benchmark setter. Take the Omega Seamaster, for example. The watch is a sheer stroke of genius in terms mechanics, functionality, as well as horology.
The TAG HeuerAquaracer is an exceptional watch with everything that one would want from a top tier dive watch. It is sleek and aesthetic in design. It is also very functional as well as useful.
The IWCAquatimer is a really different from the rest of the watches mentioned here. All the other watch brands above are into tool watches someway or the other. They are either into the business of tool watches or they have a history about it. But IWC never really associated itself with the world of tool watches, let alone dive watches. So when it finally came up with the IWC Aquatimer, it really was a change.
When it comes to Breitling and watchmaking, the partnership is so natural that it feels effortless. The Swiss watchmaker is a reputed name in the field of high horology and that is indeed a fact. The idea of creating watch dive was truly unique for Breitling given that the brand only used to involve itself with aviation watches. The BreitlingSuperocean really is an exception.
