Watch Year in Review:- Dive Watches

Post by koimaster » December 26th 2020, 11:25pm

It goes without saying: 2020 was far from an ideal year for most of us. Looking back, however, it was also a year that brought many noteworthy watch launches despite the huge obstacles posed by the pandemic and its effects on the world economy. As we look ahead hopefully to 2021, it’s time for our annual look back at some of those timepieces, in various popular categories. Today, we showcase 2020’s most interesting dive watches.

Bell & Ross’s BR 03-92, its first divers’ watch fashioned in the familiar, square-shaped “Instrument” case, debuted in a new orange-dialed model that was offered exclusively in Bell & Ross boutiques and e-boutiques. Its squared ergonomic case, made of satin-polished steel, is 42 mm in diameter and water-resistant to 300 meters. Its “circle-in-a-square” design features a 60-minute unidirectional bezel with a luminescent dot at 12 o’clock for orientation. The painted orange dial, with luminous indices and hour markers, represents the color of maritime safety, used for the suits of rescue divers. Inside the case, a soft-iron inner cage protects the movement — the automatic BR-Cal.302, based on the Sellita SW 300.1 — from the effects of magnetic fields. More details and price here.

The Seiko is sharp.

If that's a good picture and the dial looks like that in the flesh, that's as cool a dial as they've done in a long time. I don't know what other colors are available, but the blue dial blue bezel version pictured is terrific.
