A dive watch is a must-have accessory for any man who spends a lot of time on or under the water. They are also a stand-out fashion statement that says a lot about the skills, lifestyle, and fashion sense of the man wearing them. All of them have the required features you look for, but the dive watches below have some cool quirks and unknown features that just might surprise you!

Calibre de Cartier Diver

Cartier is not a brand usually associated with dive watches, being much better known for their dress watches. However, with the Calibre de Cartier, Cartier produced an excellent watch for serious divers. It is a non-chronograph dive watch with a sub-second display for extremely precise timing. Cartier’s premier dive watch meets the strict requirements for ISO 6425, proving it has the chops for a diver.

Richard Mille RM 025 Tourbillon Chronograph Diver’s Watch

Another offering from a brand that usually sticks to dry land, the Richard Mille RM 025 Tourbillon Chronograph Diver’s Watch is packed with features only a diver can appreciate. Richard Mille’s dive watch has a tourbillon, mono-pusher chronograph, and a torque indicator. All these features do result in a relatively large dive watch, but Richard Mille uses a titanium center casing to keep the watch light.

MB&F HM7 Aquapod

MB&F made a dive watch that truly looks at home under the ocean with the HM7 Aquapod. The watch is fitted with domed sapphire crystals and a tourbillon in the very center of the watch, resulting in a unique design that looks wonderfully aquatic. It also has a traditional-style diver’s bezel. However, this bezel is set around the watch, resulting in another unique facet from MB&F.
