Way back, makers had to protect their watches from magnetic fields. Later, when wristwatches took over the world of sports, they also had to be shielded from other things. These were how watch features were developed gradually. When divers started taking wristwatches underwater, the pieces just had to become water-resistant. Bell & Ross’ Marine Collection watches do not only resist, but thrive underwater. These marine watches are especially designed and crafted to perform in top-notch condition even at 1,000 meters under the surface of the water. The satin-brushed steel case is held secure by black rubber straps, and contains screw-in crowns and decompression valve. The numerals, index and hands displayed on the dial are also covered with photo-luminescent coating for easy reading in the dark recesses of the sea. These are the perfect gadgets to buy for professional diving and other water-related extreme sport.
