There’s still some summer left this season and we would be remiss if we didn’t share our love for a good watch. We thought if we had a few bucks to spend, why not invest in a great waterproof watch? To find out some top choices, we enlisted the help of Tom Pozsgay, Director of Watches at WP Diamonds. He helped us with our Top 5 men’s waterproof watches list for 2018. We asked him why each watch made the top 5 men’s waterproof watch list.
Rolex Sea Dweller
“An Oyster Case with a screwed down Triplock crown makes this the ultimate diver’s watch!” The Rolex Sea Dweller is waterproof to a depth of 4,000 feet.
Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean
“A direct descendant of the famed Seamaster 300 (one of the first dive watches to exist in the luxury market), this is an updated version on an original must-have for anyone spending time in the water.” The Seamaster Planet Ocean Collection has paid homage to OMEGA’s ocean heritage since 2005.
Blancpain Fifty Fathoms
“The Fifty is built to last and will withstand almost anything thrown at it. A watch that can withstand the pressure of 300 meters and all of the bumps and bruises inflicted by a serious diver.” The Fifty Fathoms collection embodies Blancpain’s passion for the underwater world that was originally expressed in 1953 with the creation of the first modern diver’s watch.
Tudor Heritage Black Bay
“An attractive under-water watch at the right price makes this a go-to for anyone who wants luxury and versatility.” First introduced in 2012, the Heritage Black Bay is one of the brand’s truly iconic models, celebrating 60 years of TUDOR diving watches. It’s waterproof to a depth of 200 m (660 ft).
“Originally made for the Italian Navy, this watch is steeped in history and offers a minimalist look with the rigors of an active diver.” Panerai is located in Florence, Italy and was the city’s first watchmaking school.
