#5 of the most extreme divers watches: the up to 4,000 meters waterproof Hublot King Power Oceanographic Exo4000
The 2014 featured special Model King Power Oceanographic Exo4000 from Hublot is waterproof to 4,000 meters. The dive watch was launched to commemorate an underwater expedition to a shipwreck in front of the Greek island of Antikythera, which supported Hublot. The automatic caliber ETA-Valjoux 7750 is ticking in the 48-millimeter carbon enclosure. When the model came on the market, it cost 21,200 euros.

#4 of the most extreme divers watches: the up to 5,000 meters waterproof pita Oceana 5000
Pita from Barcelona makes its diver watches with two patented solutions especially waterproof: first, there is no crown–and therefore no housing bore – because the ETA automatic caliber 2678 is placed and reared by a rotatable housing base. Secondly, the work is isolated from the elevator mechanism and is therefore completely waterproof. How does this work? In the housing floor there are magnets that set magnetic parts in motion when turning. The latter are so arranged and disguised that they do not affect the inhibition.
