Ernst Benz Debuts a Serious Diving Watch

Swiss watchmaker Ernst Benz unveiled its first diver’s watch with intention of appealing to serious divers. The ChronoDiver features a rotating bezel marked for 60 minutes to measure the length of a dive and a graduated scale for the first 15 minutes to make it easier for the diver to measure his descent. What makes this model visibly different from most diving watches is its exhibition sapphire crystal back allowing the wearer to observe the mechanical movement of the watch. Designed to be water resistant to 200 meters, the timepiece, available with a black or white dial and the company’s signature concentric dial, will retail starting at $4,900. For the launch of the watch, Ernst Benz will donate a portion of its sales to Stay-Focused, a nonprofit organization that enables teen and young adults with disabilities to become certified scuba divers.
