Before dive computers existed, divers relied on watches for timing their dive. Diver style watches are still popular today as daily-wear watches. There are a few features that are typical of most dive watches. Uncluttered dial that is easy to read, a unidirectional timing bezel, good water resistance (obviously), a screw down crown, and a rubber strap or stainless steel bracelet with adjustable extension. This video points out those features, including how to use the divers bezel. Watches shown are Tissot Seastar 1000, Seiko Samurai, ESQ Tournament, and Invicta Pro Divers. Other well known divers watches include the Rolex Submariner, Omega Planet Ocean, and Blancpain Fifty Fathoms.
