This watch is a modern-day tribute to the grace and style of classic sail boating, featuring a wooden plank-style animation ring, anchor motif and blue suede strap. The red hour hand is filled with Super-Luminova and the white minute disc, printed with blue, creates a compass rose effect when surrounded by the blue seconds disc with white tracks, and is framed in white wainscoting. An anchor at the 12-hour mark creates a life ring insignia. The stacked animation ring, reminiscent of a planked wooden deck, and blue suede strap complete the dedication.

Oris Regulateur Der Meistertaucher
This is an evolved version of the pioneering diver’s watch from 1999, which featured the first regulator that helped display the dive time. The regulator mechanism features non-coaxial hands where hour and minute hands are separated. The minute hand is in the centre, while the hour is shown by a hand on a sub-dial at 3 o’clock. The diver thus can set the dive time by aligning the minute hand to the 60-minute scale on the unidirectional rotating bezel, which in this case is fitted with a black ceramic insert with red and white markings. The minutes hand of this new model has a bright red outline, that corresponds to the critical 15-minute scale on the bezel. It helps draw the eye to the minutes hand. The automatic helium escape valve is located at 9 o’clock. It comes in a lightweight titanium case.
Citizen Promaster EcoDrive Professional Diver 1000m
This is the world’s first light-powered watch targeted for saturation diving up to 1,000m. A number of factors make it ideal for professional divers: a bezel-locking system, which improves safety; photo-luminescent hands that absorb light and stay bright and visible under water for more than five hours; and an orange warning colour that appears when the bezel lock is set to FREE. The crown also has the same mechanism, revealing an orange colour between the case and the crown to tell the diver when the crown is not correctly pushed into the locked mode. Finally, the 52.5 mm case is made from Citizen’s proprietary Super Titanium (specially hardened to withstand water pressure at 1000 metres). The watch’s diving capabilities have been validated in tests conducted in cooperation with Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology, the ocean research authority in Japan.

This is one of the most accurate luxury watches in the world.
