To many, the Rolex dive watches namely the Sea-Dweller and Submariner are the benchmark against which any good dive watch is measured. Updated for 2017, the Sea-Dweller ($11,350) celebrates its 50th anniversary this year with the return of red text on the dial; a larger, 43 mm case; and the addition of a cyclops lens for the date a feature previously unseen on the 4,000-foot-rated dive watch.

Though much less utilitarian than the Sea-Dweller, Audemars Piguets latest variants of the Offshore Diver (starting from $19,000) are just as rough-and-ready as any of their competition. Rated to a depth of 984 feet and equipped with an internal rotating bezel operated via its 10 oclock crown, the Offshore Divers feature an intricately detailed Mga Tapisserie dial and applied indices clad in a healthy coating of luminescent material to ensure good low-light legibility. These 2017 novelties have already arrived in boutiques, and are a perfect choice when a splash of color is in the cards.

Variants of the Luminor Submersible have long been the hidden gems of Panerais vast collection, and for 2017, the brand has added the 1950 3 Days Automatic Acciaio ($8,700) to satisfy the ever-growing demand for a heavy-duty diver. A three-day power reserve is delivered by its in-house manufactured automatic movement, which is visible via a sapphire crystal exhibition case back.

After discontinuing the BR 02 a few years back, we began to wonder if Bell Ross would ever return to the dive watch segment. Lo and behold, the brand recently opted to pair a dive bezel and screw-down crown with the classic square case design that has long been part of its core collection. In sticking with current size trends, the BR03-92 Diver ($3,700) is offered in with a moderate 42 mm case diameter.

Freshly redesigned to more closely match the vintage dive watches from Breitlings early years, the new Superocean Hritage II is offered in both 42 mm and 46 mm case sizes (from $4,075), providing suitable options for any wrist size. Both examples are available on rubber, leather, or mesh straps, and are powered by in-house manufactured, chronometer-certified automatic movements.

The Bulgari Diagono Scuba ($6,550) has been in the brands core lineup for years, though for 2017, the brand opted to add an extra punch of color to the equation. Powered by an in-house manufactured BVL 191 self-winding caliber, the 984-foot diver is a compact and comfortable 41 mm in diameter, letting its vibrant yellow color grab attention without added bulk. A healthy coating of Super-LumiNova on its indices and hands and a scalloped bezel ensure the Scuba delivers on function as well as form.

Also on the out of the ordinary list is Cartiers beautiful dive watch, launched in this bold blue hue for 2016. The Calibre de Cartier Diver in pink gold ($25,000) airs on the side of lifestyle over serious diving tool, though it still boasts similar dive-ready specs to its competition a screw-down crown, timing bezel, and 300m depth rating. The hefty piece also uses a ceramic bezel insert thats much thicker than whats seen on most dive watches out there, adding a unique aesthetic touch when viewed from most angles.
