Ten Best German Dive Watches
By Michael Felix Photography

German watch companies manufacture really unique dive watches. German dive watches are water proof from two hundred meters and all the way to one thousand meters. Many German dive watches are very chunky and usually come on stainless steel or titanium bracelet, rubber strap or leather strap. Dive watches, being the toughest of all watch types, would last a lifetime in all kinds of conditions. And the German dive watches are no exception. Take a closer look at the unique dive watches from the Federal Republic of Germany.

Famous German watch company Sinn manufactures various great watches and one of them is Sinn U1. Sinn U1 is probably the best dive watch that you can find for a price under two thousand dollars. First of all, the design of this great dive watch is very unique. Second of all, this watch is water proof up to one thousand meters, while most other Swiss dive watches in the same price range and with the same automatic movement are water proof up to only three hundred meters. And finally, this dive watch is made of not a regular stainless steel but of a submarine steel. The steel that is used to make Sinn U1 dive watch is the same steel that is used to make German submarines. This submarine steel is very sea water resistant and is also highly anti-magnetic. You can get a Sinn U1 with a submarine steel bracelet and an automatic (self-winding mechanical) movement for about eighteen hundred dollars. This watch is 44mm wide and is water proof up to one thousand meters. Sinn U1 comes with a two year manufacturer warranty.

Limes is a great German watch company that produces very affordable watches. They manufacture a unique dive watch called Limes 1Tausend Series II. This watch is water proof up to one thousand meters and is 41mm wide.

Limes 1Tausend Series II comes with a two year manufacturer warranty.Muhle Glashutte is a very famous German watch company. They manufacture a stylish dive watch called Muhle Glashutte Search and Rescue. Muhle Glashutte Search and Rescue watch is an official watch of the German Search and Rescue team. This watch is water proof up to one thousand meters and is 42mm wide.
