Today, Luxury Yachts will explore some of the best dive watches that were showcased at the show of world premieres, Baselworld 2018. These luxury watches are just the right accessories one should bring when chartering a yacht, as it will allow one to explore the sea without losing track of time and ruining a precious item.
A Diver’s watch is meant to be legible, robust, precise, and most importantly, watertight. The following eight dive watches, which made a tremendous impact at the leading watchmaking and jewellery event, masterfully encompass all of these characteristics.
Rolex Oyster Perpetual Rolex Deepsea
Waterproof to 3,900 metres (12,800 feet), the new Oyster Perpetual Rolex Deepsea features a 44-mm Oystersteel case with redesigned lugs and sides and a broader Oyster bracelet, as well as a correspondingly adapted Oysterlock folding safety clasp.
