Five High Quality Beautiful Looking Depth Gauge Dive Watches

depth-gauge-dive-watches

Dive watches must be the most well-built and reliable of all watches. Dive watches must resist both water and pressure at great depths. Many appreciate the classic styles of dive watches for the style and value they carry. However, for those who actually use the depth gauge diver watch for scuba or deep sea diving, these watches are vital. They need to resist both water and pressure. It is important for divers to have a watch that is perfectly calibrated to count the time and the depth of the water.

Before depth gauge dive watches were developed in the late 1960s, divers had to wear a waterproof watch and a separate, often bulky depth gauge. Combining the two proved difficult because the timepiece could not be exposed to water while the depth gauge required some water to indicate water pressure. During the 1970s and early 1980s, developments were made to successfully combine the 2 elements. Citizen debuted its Aqualand in the mid 1980s and combined a bulbous depth sensor with an analog/digital watch. The watch included dive time, depth pressure, dive time and a stopwatch/countdown timer.

Today, depth gauge dive watches are both efficient, exceptionally well made, and attractive. Here are our picks for the 5 most gorgeous depth gauge dive watches that work well and look great.
