DAVOSA Apnea Diver AUTOMATIC

Here’s another (in-depth) look at the Davosa APNEA Diver Automatic, which just happens to be one the first ever divers watches designed specifically for use by freedivers.

After several months of anticipation, it has finally been officially released in an initial Limited Series of 200 pieces.



The Apnea Diver Auto was developed in close collaboration with five World record holder, Nik Linder who also holds records for:

distance diving under ice, the longest apnea dive suspended from the ceiling with his head in an aquarium and would you believe it – for the longest underwater kiss!



The Apnea Diver Automatic was designed to assist Nik with his training thanks to features such as the multi-colored ring around its dial.



The blue, white and red colors replicate an internationally recognized breathing exercise in freediving:



A breath is taken during the five-second blue phase, during the white phase it is held for 15 seconds and then during the red phase the air is slowly expelled over a period of 10 seconds.



With the help of this color code, the freediver can concentrate fully on this vital breathing exercise without needing to count or use a stopwatch.



In order to take advantage of the specially color-coded ring, the watch must be held in an upright position for these breathing exercises –



The Apnea Diver Automatic offers the perfect solution, and is thus a watertight professional freediving instrument.



By simply unscrewing the crown at 3 o’clock, the middle section of its slightly curved, 42mm Stainless steel case can be removed.



And thanks to a hinged ring that is attached to the middle section, the diver can now safely stand the remaining watch case while performing breathing exercises.



Nik Linder added a further feature to the Apnea Diver Automatic: in contrast to scuba diving where the minute hand is vital for safe an accurate time-reading, in freediving it’s all about the seconds.



This is why the second hand of the Apnea Automatic with its large a red tip is now the most prominent hand ensuring exact reading of the seconds at all times.



The DAVOSA Apnea Diver Automatic is powered by a reliable Swiss SW 200 automatic movement which is housed in a 20 ATM water-resistant case.



Time can be read via the bezel with its rotatable ring. The colored ring on the outer edge of the dial is additionally divided into seconds.



And the hands and Arabic figures are naturally coated with SuperLumiNova, so the DAVOSA Apnea Diver Automatic remains readable even with poor underwater visibility.



The watch comes in three different versions: with a satin-finished and scratch-resistant Stainless steel case and black dial (998€) or alternatively with a completely PVD black coated case (1048€).



In addition to these there is a third version with a Stainless steel case in combination with a black PVD coated bezel and crowns (1098€).



Each set also includes a second interchangeable strap, which is also made from wearable, lightweight and water-resistant rubber.

DELTAt NBS

Please don’t readjust your screen – rather readjust your mind! This is no ordinary dive watch; this is an industrial-styled high water-resistance tool-watch.



It ain’t designed to go under a shirt cuff, it will look out of place in the boardroom, but it if you’re someone who likes to do things a little differently,

then here’s an intriguing watch from a company in Hong Kong who also like to do things just that bit differently – introducing the DELTAt NBS!



Inspired by a nuclear fusion reactor, the NBS watch is an exceptionally robust piece of kit. It contains a number of industrial characteristics such as the three heavy-duty screws that run through its bezel, main-case and case-back cover.



It is available with a selection of case materials that include Marine Grade 316L Stainless steel and Al Marine Bronze. There are even some funky blue anodized versions for those that are looking for even more wrist-presence!



The NBS mightn’t be your first choice as a diving companion, but with its automatic Helium Escape Valve, thick anti-reflective treated Sapphire crystal and 1000 meters of water-resistance, it's more than fit for bath-time duties!

It is powered by a Japanese made, Miyota Cal 8N24 automatic movement which can be viewed through the three slits in the watch’s dial - revealing the balance wheel and escapement fork’s operation.



Finally the NBS boasts a patent pending Lug Screw Locking Mechanism with small rubber O-Rings provided on the lug screw adding extra friction between the screw and the pin when fastened thus helping to prevent the screw from coming loose.
