The point is that it is a bezel that can still be used as a ET device for diving (unless one can't divide 60 by 12...and in that case, they probably shouldn't be diving) and it gives you the extra functionality of tracking a 2nd time zone.

We are in the mids of prototypes. And trying to change some specifications and designs to make it pass the 1000m WR test.

While I know a lot of watches out there are in the 1000m WR category. But a lot of them are just built in specifications to withstand the pressure. For Dievas Divers it will be built for 1000m and will be tested to 1000m.

Ill release more info when I can. We are looking most probably at a late 1st quater release if everything goes according to plan.

Cheers
Anders

Hope I'm not too late to the party.  What do I look for in a diver's watch?  Nothing too loud or industrial, I'm afraid.

My ideal diver's style watch should be comfortably worn, despite its not-too-extreme size.  Notice I say "diver's style" because it must definitely go underwater and do it well, but because I can't even swim in chlorinated water without getting a skin reaction, it must look good, be well constructed, and wear well with everyday clothes, not just a wetsuit!

Case size: 40 - 42mm tops.
Bezel: Thin, 5 - 8mm printed area, chamfered and tapered off like a GMT, not right-angled and protruding like the SAR.
Total height: Under 14mm.

I'd love little touches that can only be discovered by someone who actually owns it.  E.g. I had the opportunity of handling Anders' own Damasko, and was real stoked to feel unidirectional fins on the winding crown.  Why not the same on a unidirectional bezel?

My personal want, is to see more 40mm divers, with good attention to detail and cool "manufacturing" touches.  Don't rely on visual bombastic-ness or sheer heft.

I know these are in vogue now, and there are some really nice pieces out there.  I just can't wear them everyday, or they don't really look good on me.  There are some guys who can really pull it off though, and full props to them.

But since this thread is about what "you" look for, I'd put in my opinions.  The Superocean Heritage 38 and Fifty Fathoms are good examples that you don't need to be big or "industrial" to look elegant, yet sporty.

Regards,
Jonathan

Anders,
I disagree with the last post, but only because I need HUGE watches to look cool. Also, my eyesight isn't what it used to be so anything over 46mm is great for me, especially when diving. Seriously though, I assume you are beyond the advice stage on this project, so just send me serial #1 and be done with it. I'm sure I will love it. P.S.- if #1 is not available, I'll take any number after that!toon1.gif
