Selections are cool! Do you know why?  On the one hand, you no longer have to spend ages looking for the perfect watch! Just put your faith in us and we will introduce you to models you may have overlooked! Aren’t we the good guys?

Faced with this generous offer, it’s true to say that, during the summer, which is on its way (it’s still a bit chilly and gloomy in our capital city at the moment!), most of you will find yourselves on holiday near a water source of varying depth (salted or otherwise). That also applies in the bath-tub?

–So we didn’t waste a second! We got the management team, stylists, engineers and webmasters together (we already told you there were quite a few involved, right?) to work on a selection of SUMMER 2015 DIVING WATCHES, no more, no less – there’s something to suit all tastes and all budgets!
