Diver's watches Feminine diver's watches

Designed to reach abyssal depths, diving watches are no longer an exclusively masculine preserve, as is vividly confirmed by three new models.

Carl F. Bucherer  – Patravi Scubatec Ladies

With summer on its way, the new steel Patravi Scubatec Ladies by Carl F. Bucherer, powered by the self-winding CFB 1950 movement, will appeal to women looking for a watch that is both reliable and feminine. The sporty look of this model is expressed through its 36mm stainless steel case and a visible crown guard ensuring water resistance to 200m. Diamonds set on each bracelet lug as well as on the steel and ceramic bezel accentuate the elegance of this timepiece. As on all Patravi ScubaTec watches, the bezel turns in a counter-clockwise direction only. On the matt white dial adorned with a subtle wave motif, four diamonds sparkle in place of the numerals and hour-markers normally reserved for scuba diving and decompression stops. A luminous white dot indicates position zero. The Patravi Scubatec Ladies is delivered with two wristbands: a rubber strap enabling the owner to wear her watch in water without any fear of damaging the strap; as well as a stainless steel bracelet.

Chopard – Happy Ocean

A sea breeze is blowing across the Happy Sport collection this year as it welcomes a ‘diver’ that is equally at ease well below the sea as on the deck of a sailboat: the Happy Ocean watch. Topping a broad 40mm stainless steel case, the unidirectional rotating bezel – attired in two-tone blue-turquoise or blue-raspberry pink shades echoing the delicate nuances of the ocean and the shimmering colours of corals – features wave-like notches ensuring an excellent grip under water. Five moving diamonds dance across the dial bearing luminescent hands and hour-markers that ensure optimal legibility in the dark. This timepiece is water-resistant to 300 metres and houses a self-winding Chopard movement. Finally, the Happy Sport watch appears teamed with a NATO strap that is a first for the brand’s feminine collections.

Eterna – KonTiki Lady Diver Quartz

2017 marks the 70th anniversary of the Kon-Tiki expedition. In 1947, the Norwegian anthropologist Thor Heyerdahl left the Peruvian port of Calloa aboard a balsa wood raft named Kon-Tiki in order to prove to the world that the first Polynesians might well be descendants of the Indians of South America. After spending more than a hundred days on the Pacific and covering 8,000km, the team arrived safely at their destination. During the expedition’s preparatory phase, Thor Heyerdahl commissioned Eterna to supply water-resistant watches to equip crew members. In tribute to the explorer, Eterna presented in 1958 the first watch named Kontiki, featuring a self-winding movement protected by a case water-resistant to 200 metres.

This year, Eterna is enriching its feminine diving watch range by presenting the KonTiki Lady Diver Quartz. This chic yet casual timepiece features a 36 mm-diameter stainless steel case framing a white lacquered dial. For a more urban look, two of the four models are available with a pink gold PVD treatment. The white, pink or black leather strap sets the perfect finishing touch to the well-groomed appearance of this model. The triangular index at 12 o’clock, the Eterna brand symbol, is there to remind us that the Lady KonTiki Diver is above all a diver’s watch, water-resistant to 200 metres, equipped with a unidirectional ceramic bezel and providing a fluorescent display visible in the dark.
