16 Best Dive Watches in 2020

Post by koimaster » July 14th 2020, 5:21pm

Whether you’re just diving into a huge workload at your desk, or actually spending some time deep underwater, one thing is clear — a dive watch would be great to have on your wrist. You don’t need to be a diver to appreciate these high-performing, beautifully designed, and undoubtedly utilitarian timepieces for everyday use. In this Carry Smarter guide, you’ll get familiar with the basics of dive watches, what features to look for when buying a diver, and our picks for the best and most affordable options to help you take the plunge into the world of dive watches.

A Crash Course on Dive Watches
The purpose of a dive watch is to monitor how long you’ve been underwater, and more importantly - how much air you have left in your tank. They’ve been around since the turn of the 20th century and continue to be both fashionable and useful to this day.

The quintessential dive watch has an immediately recognizable look. They're larger (around 42mm), feature a rotating bezel, and rest on a metal bracelet or rubber strap.

Dive watches are ideal for EDC because they’re built like tanks, they’re easy to read, and they look just plain cool.

Well, that’s a more or less balanced selection. Some of these seem OK, and some of them suck cock.

I wait with baited breath for Mr. Bedlam to chime in on this one.

That Timex doesn't look like a screw-down crown to me, but I could be wrong.

So, basically, it's a "diver" like I'm the lead dancer in the Metropolitan Ballet company. Check.

Where's the Rolex submariner? Fake list! Looks like they found the few seikos with aligned chapter rings.

This is a list of dive watches a normal person was actually able to purchase in 2020; that's why the Rolex is nowhere to be seen. It has been nowhere to be found for ages.

I can just see the workers at the Rolex factory now, thinking; the slower I work, the more valuable this watch becomes. Good thing I get that 40% employee discount; daddy needs a new Mercedes.
