There are a lot of diver watches out there. When you’re going on an underwater adventure, your watch becomes much more than just a way to tell time. It becomes your companion, recording your elapsed dive time and making sure you resurface at just the right time.

It’s important that your watch has the features you need for whatever aquatic endeavor you’re pursuing, and Orient Diver watches cover the entire spectrum.

Read on to learn about the best watches for the following activities:

  1. Snorkeling
  2. Scuba Diving (without helium)
  3. Saturation Diving


If you prefer a leisurely snorkeling adventure, there’s no need to spend thousands of dollars for a complicated diver watch. A more simple model, like the Orient 2ER00002D is perfect.

With a mineral crystal and solid stainless steel band, it’s durable. It’s also water resistant up to 100m, which is more than enough for snorkeling.

As we’ve discovered, diver watches aren’t just for diving. This model’s brilliant blue color makes it a fashionable choice for any occasion, and its $180 price tag makes it an affordable choice.

Scuba Diving

Tired of playing in the shallow end? If you’re doing scuba diving, a watch from the Orient Mako XL collection is what you need.

With a variety of colors to choose from, there’s something for everyone. The all black CEM75001B model is simple and versatile, while the bright orange CEM75001M is bold and unique.

The Mako XL, which is a newer and bigger version of the original Mako, has a water resistance up to 200 meters.

Saturation Diving

This is serious stuff. If you plan on going deep, you’ll want to have an Orient Professional Saturation Diver model, like the CFD0C001B, with you.

Before a saturation dive, divers expose themselves to helium in order to prevent nitrogen narcosis, a serious condition that usually occurs when divers get below 100 ft.

The helium can damage a normal water resistant watch, causing it to break upon surfacing. This won’t happen with the Professional Saturation Diver because it has a specially designed case that prevents the helium gas from doing any damage to the watch.

It’s water resistant up to 300 meters and has a sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating.

So whether you’re a first time snorkeler or you’re taking the plunge into the depths of the ocean, there’s a diver watch designed for you.

Happy diving!
