The last colour you see before the world goes black is orange.
Which is why orange watches are essential for scuba divers
1. Omega SeaMaster Planet Ocean
The iconic, all-mechanical diver’s watch, waterproof to 300m and chronometer-certified (ie, it’s very accurate).
2. Doxa Sub 750T Dirk Pitt
Re-issue of the 1967 watch designed for a fictitious adventurer, Clive Cussler’s Dirk Pitt. Waterproof to 750m.
3. TechnoMarine Abyss
A Swiss-made quartz timepiece that’s waterproof to a mind-boggling 10,900m. The bubble floating inside is deliberate.
4. Traser HS P 6504 Diver Orange
Water-resistant to 200m, the tritium dial on the H3 is 100 times brighter than a standard watch.
5. Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore
Limited-edition diver’s watch with tachymeter, which allows you to monitor the speed of passing fish… or something.
6. Hermès Clipper Chronograph
This Swiss-made watch proves that Hermès is just as comfortable designing for the depths as it is for the catwalk.
