Capillary-style depth gauges are nothing new or particularly advanced, but they are simple and effective. Swiss Oris has managed to design one into one of its dive watches. The result is a mechanical watch with a non-electronic depth gauge that does not cost an arm and a leg. IWC and Jager-LeCoultre already proved to us that they can make those - and that is fantastic - but they were a complication for complication's sake because even if you choose to dive with a luxury watch, you probably aren't going to want to rely on it as your depth gauge.
With a simple function-forward design, the casual Marathon Diver's Automatic, aka "GSAR" is a 41mm steel dive watch with a grippy bezel, legible display, and tritium illumination on the markers and hands. Despite the extra depth required for the tritium tubes and the tall bezel design, the Marathon Swiss Diver Watch Automatic GSAR is just 14mm thick. With a lug-to-lug size of 48mm and a total weight of 112g, this is a dive watch that can suit a wide range of wrists.
Swiss Anonimo Watch is a brand that is most known for their swiss dive watches. In the past years, they have been producing, for example, the well known Millimetri, which was waterproof to 1,000 meters, or the Polluce, another example of reliable and functional diving tool. Nowadays, Anonimo is refocusing the collections mainly on two references; the Militaire and the Nautilo watches.
It was back in 2013 when Swiss Maurice Lacroix first released one of the most beautiful contemporary dive-style watches with the Pontos S Diver. The sporty "Pontos" watch collection has had a number of members over the years, and arguably Maurice Lacroix would be well-advised to clarify the collection's naming conventions. With that said, the Maurice Lacroix Pontos S Diver that now comes in a few versions is a great mini-family of Pontos watches unto itself.
