The New Insignum Subwave

My watch collection recently grew with the addition of a brand new Insignum Subwave Dive Watch from my friends at  They are now carrying the full line of watches from this German brand that combines German design and quality control with global sourcing and affordability.

I'm really excited about this Insignum watch because it is a real dive watch rated for 200-meters of water resistance.  With this rugged watch, I'm all set for serious underwater adventures.  It's made with 316L stainless steel for the case and the bracelet.  It also has a sapphire-coated glass crystal.

It has a unidirectional rotating bezel for timing your dive (or my pizza).  Most importantly for water resistance, it has the screw down crown to keep water out of the Japanese quartz movement.

Once you've got a watch like this one, you'll have to gear up!

  1. I have an Insignum silver Tempus. It's amazing in terms of case, bracelet and crystal quality. I am trying to buy a Subwave with the blue face and the blue and red bezel. I am in the US and Zulutimezone no longer carries them. Would appreciate a source. German and European distributors have not been able to help so far. My email is
