Diving Into New York 2015

Ball Watch

If you are as much into dive watches as we are at DiveIntoWatches.com, last week’s WatchTime New York event offered at least 30 additional very good reasons to visit the show at Gotham Hall. And just in case you missed it, here is a comprehensive overview of what the sponsoring brands had on display (from A to Z):

Ball Watch Co. showed most of its current collection; among the brand’s comprehensive range of dive watches was the recently relaunched Skindiver II

…its flagship dive watch model, the 3,000-meter water-resistant Hydrocarbon DeepQuest,…

…and the Hydrocarbon Nedu chronograph – a model that was introduced in 2012 and combined a winding crown and a helium-release valve for the first time.

Blancpain already had the two latest additions for its Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe on display: the new Sedna gold…

…and the model in a black ceramic case

Carl F. Bucherer presented all versions of its 500 meter-water-resistant Patravi ScubaTec, including one of the more recent additiosn featuring a gold bezel…

Mühle Glashütte presented the 2,000 meter water-resistant Rasmus…

…and the Kampfschwimmer, introduced in 2014.

RGM’s 300 Pro Diver Series 1 is definitely one of those dive watches you rarely see in real life: the watch comes with ceramic bezel insert…

…and what seems to be a rather angry sea monster on the caseback.

Seiko had most of its current Prospex range on display. For example:

Seiko

…the limited-edition Marinemaster 300 (SBDX012) with gold and red accents…

…a non-working prototype of the limited-edition Hi-Beat Marinemaster 1000 (SBEX001)…

…the mechanical version of the new Marinemaster 1000 with rose gold bezel…

…as well as the quartz-powered Marinemaster 1000 …

…and a pair of 300-meter water-resistant Marinemaster 300s.

Ulysse Nardin

Ulysse Nardin presented several versions of both generations of its Marine Diver collection…

…and with surprise, even the limited edition featuring a camouflage dial was shown.

Visconti brought the Scuba Abyssus 3000 all the way from Italy…

…accompanying with two versions of its 2015 introduced Abyssus 500 model.

The only pieces missing? We missed photographing Porsche Design’s P’6780 Diver and Bell & Ross’s Marine collection.
