Dievas will soon be launching the next model, the Dievas FOCAL, following the introduction of the Vortex 2 years ago. The Focal will be the first tactical diver from Dievas utilizing our proprietary scratch resistant 6Steel technology.

Leading to the release of the Focal, we will like to share with you the process and manufacturing of the Focal(and of course our other models) in Germany.

Precision engineering is an art form. There are many ways to make a case.
Here at Dievas, we take extra steps to make sure all the fine details are in place.
From the smooth BUT straight edges to the smooth interaction between the case, bezel, caseback and parts.

It will be like a factory tour where we take you through the different stages of manufacturing all from the comfort of your home. And also some sneak peaks and behind the scene never shown before by other manufacturers.

This is also to further emphasize that our watches are well engineered and masterpieces which we can truly call MADE IN GERMANY.

1. Dievas in renown watchmaking central at the gateway of Black Forrest, 30mins from Stuttgart.

2. The road leading to our manufacturing facilities.

3. Part of our main manufacturing floor. Not a mega place. But complete CNC machinery for all our manufacturing needs.

4. Today I will like to show you the first step of our milling process. And this is the CNC milling machine we will use for the main case. And for the milling of the back of the main case.

5. Clamping the watch case(dial side down) down onto the spindle. To the right of the picture, you can see the multiple milling cutters needed just for the milling of the back of the case.

What processes you ask?

Milling the grooves for the caseback to screw into, milling the shape and angles of the lugs. Different angles and different groove depths uses different cutters. What might look like a simple case does have a lot going on behind the scene.


6. Closing the shutter and the milling process begins.

7. The cases that went through the first process. Lined up and waiting for the next process.

And finally, to wrap it all up. A short video to show what goes on and also the music made by the milling machine.
What happens is the case clamped on the spindle is turning at high speed. And the cutter approaches it to mill it.

Notice the changing of the cutter?

This is the end of part 1. Stay tuned for the next installment.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen
Dievas Uhren Technik
