According to the understanding of ordinary watch fans, so-called “high-performance” diving watches will be equipped with a helium escape device so that the helium gas that enters the watch body through the gaps in the watch due to high pressure in the deep sea can be eliminated, preventing it from surfacing during the process of surfacing. , due to the reduction in pressure, the helium expands and squeezes the watch crystal, causing the risk of rupture. To overcome the enormous pressure in the deep sea, this type of professional diving watch is composed of multi-layer structures, so the watch body is usually thicker, which is also a significant feature. This article introduces several high-performance diving watches, all waterproof to at least 500 meters. Let’s see if watch fans can control them!
ROLEX Deepsea D-Blue Ref.126660 Oystersteel case, Cerachrom ceramic bezel unidirectional rotating bezel, case diameter 44 mm, hours, minutes, seconds, date, automatic helium escape valve, 3235 self-winding movements, Power reserve 70 hours, Rolex chronometer certification, sapphire crystal, water-resistant to 3,900 meters, Oystersteel bracelet, Glidelock extension system.
ROLEX Deepsea D-Blue Ref.126660
Rolex launched the Sea-Dweller Deepsea D-Blue Ref. 116660 in 2014 to pay tribute to the famous Titanic director James. James Cameron dived into the Mariana Trench on a Deepsea Challenger submarine, setting a world record for a solo dive to 10,908 meters (35,787 feet) under the Pacific Ocean. Fake Rolex for sale.
The blue-black gradient dial echoes the color of the seawater in the deep sea, and the Cerachrom ceramic bezel with platinum numerals and scales plated using the physical vapor deposition method makes it even more noble.

The 11-layer watch body structure includes the Ringlock system (5.5 mm thick sapphire crystal glass mirror, nitrogen alloy stainless steel ring, Oyster steel body, and grade 5 titanium alloy case bottom cover), plus a triple waterproof system watch Crown, water resistant up to 3,900 meters.
In 2018, it was equipped with a new 3235 automatic winding movement, and the power reserve was increased from 48 hours to 70 hours; in addition, the lugs and both sides of the case were redesigned, and an Oyster-style adjustable gridlock strap was added that was 1 mm wider. , which significantly increases the wearing comfort.
ORIS Dive Control titanium case, unidirectional rotating bezel, diameter 51 mm, hours, minutes, small seconds, date, chronograph, automatic helium escape valve, Oris 774 self-winding movement, power reserve 48 hours, sapphire crystal glass mirror, specially engraved bottom cover, waterproof to 1,000 meters, rubber strap, limited to 500 pieces.
ORIS Dive Control
Oris collaborated with Swiss commercial diver Roman Frischknecht to launch the Dive Control limited edition diving watch and specially developed a patented Rotation Safety System (RSS), which can protect the ceramic bezel covered with toothed rubber through a unique locking mechanism to prevent it from being damaged. When using the bezel to record the dive time or operating the timing function with an accuracy of 1/4 second, any errors in the process will affect the accuracy. Bell and ross replica.
Even though the diameter of the watch is 51 mm, the case is made of titanium, which is relatively light and not difficult to control. The black dial with a wavy pattern and contrasting yellow color is unique in design.
OMEGA Planet Ocean Big Blue ceramic case, unidirectional rotating ceramic bezel, case diameter 45.5 mm, hours, minutes, seconds, date, 24-hour second local time, manual helium escape valve, 8906 Master Observatory self-winding movement, Power reserve 60 hours, COSC certified, sapphire crystal glass and bottom cover, waterproof 600 meters, rubber strap.
OMEGA Planet Ocean Big Blue
In addition to being a diving watch, Omega’s Planet Ocean Big Blue also has a practical second-place time function. Equipped with the 8906 Master Co-Axial Escapement self-winding movement, it has passed eight rigorous tests by the Master Chronometer (METAS) of the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology, including the ability to withstand a maximum magnetic force of 15,000 Gauss.
The manual helium escape valve is located at 10 o’clock, and the helium in the watch can be discharged by turning the Crown. The blue ceramic bezel is combined with a scale made of Liquidmetal, and the first 15 minutes are embedded in orange rubber, which is quite bright.
Bucherer Prev Diving Watch Series “Black Manta Special Edition” DLC-coated titanium case, unidirectional rotating ceramic bezel, diameter 44.6 mm, hours, minutes, seconds, date, automatic helium escape valve, CFB 1950.1 self-winding movement, power reserve 38 hours, COSC certified, sapphire crystal glass, unique engraved bottom cover, waterproof 500 meters, rubber strap, with PET plastic recycled textile material layer.
Carl F. Bucherer Prev Deep Diving Watch Series “Black Manta Special Edition”
This year, Carl F. Bucherer continued its cooperation with the British charity organization “Manta Trust” and launched the Patravi deep diving watch series “Black Manta Special Edition” and donated part of the proceeds from the watch sales to the fund. Research on manta rays will be conducted to promote and respond to conservation projects. The watch shows the image of a manta ray swimming gracefully in the water through the transfer of the dial and the engraved image on the back of the watch.
The titanium case is plated black with diamond-like carbon and paired with a strap made of recycled PET plastic material to reduce resource waste and show practical actions to protect the environment.
