DELTA HYDRA
There ’ s no question the Hydra by Delta is a big watch in anyone ’ s book . At 47mm ( without crown ) wide by 19.2mm thick , this stainless-steel case will take up substantial wrist-space and is sure to get attention on any arm . Looking like another classic from the past , don ’ t be confused as the turret on the right side of the Delta Hydra is actually a helium release valve – not a bezel lock like that “ other ” watch . Rated to 200atm ( that ’ s not a typo !), the Delta Hydra is professional grade and capped with a sapphire crystal , powered by an automatic mechanical Seiko NH-35 movement , and ready for mixed gas diving . At only $ 379 you ’ ll be hard-pressed to find a deeper diver for the dollar ! www . deltawatch . co
MARTENERO BELGRANO
The Belgrano is a modern take on the classic dive watch . Available in four different colorways , each option is designed to get plenty of attention on your wrist even when you ’ re not submerged . That said , 20atm water resistance , a 120-click unidirectional bezel , and plenty of lume make this a highly functional diver . In the office or out on the water , the Belgrano is a great option in an American micro-brand diver . Inside the 39mm stainless steel case is the Seiko NH35 automatic with a power reserve of just over 40 hours . The icy-cool white version with blue accents has already sold out but three other variations remain available for $ 395 at www . martenero . com
