When we set out to look for our first diver we had three key aspects in mind; the case, the movement and the history of the watch. This reduced the list of possible contenders to a handful of options.

The first prototype of the Ocean 2000 was built in 1982 as a watch for mine clearance divers and designed by the legendary Ferdinand A. Porsche. The version for non-military use was the first watch with a pressure-resistance of 200 bar and is much coveted by collectors.

With a unique and easy to use inner turning bezel mechanism and its 200 BAR pressure resistance, the Aquatimer 2000 is without a doubt the best performing complicated watch case in “Haute Horologerie”. The 80110 calibre is conceived and perfected for the extreme conditions endured by a “professional” watch. The Aquatimer 2000 is a superlative “diver” in every aspect.
