FROM THE DEEP

The aquatic origins of the AERA D–1 Diver

In the 20th century, great leaps forward in technology brought previously uncharted territories within reach. Wristwatches quickly became vital safety tools. In the oceans, the invention of SCUBA (self-contained underwater breathing apparatus) gave divers unprecedented new freedom of movement to explore the depths. But it also brought new risks.

 Dive watches developed quickly to address those risks. Unidirectional bezels (which could not rotate clockwise) were created to make it impossible for a diver to inadvertently knock the bezel during a dive to give a mistaken indication of more time available underwater. Tough cases and crystals, screw-in case backs and screw-down crowns were developed to withstand the water pressure of ever deeper dives. Finally, watch dials evolved into supremely legible displays with large light-emitting indexes that could be read even in low light.

We wanted the D-1 Diver to look and feel like a contemporary statement, so we’ve stripped out the unnecessary details and kept only the essentials. It's a simple timepiece with form-emphasising design that creates a striking piece of architecture on the wrist.

SPECIFICATIONS

A closer look at the D–1 Diver

The ruggedly engineered 904L brushed stainless steel case and screw-in caseback are contemporary, with a smooth elliptical profile that makes a bold statement. The matt black dial with oversized markings is hand-filled with Super-LumiNova for optimal visibility.

HOURS. MINUTES. SECONDS

Tell time with clarity 

We’ve chosen simple matte white hands to provide a sharp contrast to the matte black velvet dial, and added a luminous tip on the second hand for a subtle accent of colour. For a look that’s contemporary, functional, and doesn’t compromise on style - or legibility. 

SUPER-LUMINOVA

See clearly in the dark

We insist on only the best in quality and efficiency. That’s why our dials are hand-filled with Swiss-made Super-LumiNova. It maximises emission for colour, vibrance and a superior glow that will help you see in even the darkest of settings. 

SAPPHIRE CRYSTAL

Never miss a moment

Our crafted sapphire crystal is domed to reduce distortion and give you a clear view of the dial from every angle. We’ve finished it with an anti-reflective coating that reduces glare and is scratch resistant, to make sure it lives up to all of life’s adventures. 

SWISS MOVEMENT

Feel the difference

Each watch is powered by Sellita SW200-1, the Swiss-made workhorse of the industry. The 38-hour power reserve movement has a 4Hz frequency for a smooth, sweeping seconds hand, and 26 friction-reducing jewels for maximum efficiency.
