Diving watches are supposed to be worn by divers. However, most people who wear diving watches tend to spend either little or no time in the water, whether because they like the look or because they have aspirations of becoming a diver. Moreover, it is amusing to note that most divers don't actually need diving watches because dive computers have taken over, though there are some who believe that their diving watches can serve as a useful substitute. Summed up, people don't actually need to be a diver to wear a diving watch, which is why they should have no qualms about choosing whichever diving watch looks good to them.
Here are some examples of diving watches that are good for divers as well as non-divers:
Bell & Ross BRO3-92 Diver
Bell & Ross's diving watches are interesting in that they go through reboots from time to time. For example, their earliest diving watches were conventional in nature, while those that came afterwards were very fancy but not particularly practical, which as mentioned earlier, isn't actually that big of a problem for diving watch customers. The Bell & Ross BRO3-92 Diver is a change in the sense that it is now based on the square-shaped design of Bell & Ross's aviation collection, which makes for a rather pleasing presentation on the whole.
Bremont Type S300
Generally speaking, Bremont is better-known for its aviation watches. However, that reputation has been put to excellent use in contributing to the Bremont Type S300, which boasts a 40 mm case that provides interested individuals with a relatively modest 300 m water resistance. As a result, the Bremont Type S300 might not be particularly suitable for people who are serious about their diving because it won't be able to handle deeper depths, but for most people who will never get anywhere close to that kind of depth, it is more than capable of serving its intended function. Combined with the fact that the Bremont Type S300 actually looks as though it is as well-suited for above the water as beneath the water because of its characteristic look as well as its leather strap, it should be a good choice for people who care more about the look than the maximum capabilities of their diving watch.
Citizen Promaster 1000M Professional
For people who are fascinated by the sheer number of features that can be crammed into a single diving watch, there is the Citizen Promaster 1000M Professional, which might not be the most wearable watch out there but is nonetheless very interesting because it is fully in-tune with its nature as an exercise in engineering. For example, the Citizen Promaster 1000M Professional is said to be the deepest solar-powered watch that can be found out there, which is a rather notable as well as a rather amusing distinction to say the least.
Doxa SUB 300 Aqua Lung Edition
In contrast, those who want something simpler and more straightforward in nature might be interested in the Doxa SUB 300 Aqua Lung Edition, which was created to celebrate not one but two anniversaries. First, the watch is intended as a celebration of the SUB 300's 50th anniversary. Second, the watch is intended as a celebration of the aqua lung's 75th anniversary, which explains the rest of its name. Based on this, it should come as no surprise to learn that this watch is a collaboration between Doxa and Jacques-Yves Cousteau's Aqualung, meaning that interested individuals should have no doubt about its capabilities as a diving watch.
Sinn U1 Professional
The Sinn U1 Professional is a special edition of Sinn's diving watches, which is why it bears some minor but nonetheless consequential changes such as a simplified dial as well as a hardened steel case. In particular, it is worth mentioning the black bezel that has been combined with white markings, which results in a simple but nonetheless stunning impression that is bound to be well-suited for a lot of people out there. On the whole, the Sinn U1 Professional is a diving watch that makes an excellent choice for people who want something that is no-nonsense in nature while being perfectly capable of serving its intended functions.
