On the surface, scuba diving seems straightforward, but that's just because up there you don't have to actually worry about air and stuff. At least you can now take "finding a sweet dive timepiece" off your list of concerns, thanks to Red Sea Watches.
From a couple of landlocked Minneapolitan desk jockeys, Red Sea's a spankin' new brand of high-end, limited-edition dive tickers that're stylish enough for the everyday, ruggedly constructed, and were inspired by their makers' love of pirates, so they must not yet have seen On Stranger Tides. Their inaugural drop includes two models: The Six Pounder (pirate lingo for a naval cannon) and the The Holystone (a sandstone used to swab decks), both of which rock 316L stainless steel cases, sport red hands dotted with "lumed cannon balls", and can survive to depths of up to 164 fathoms, a unit of measurement you ironically can't grasp. Each time-teller comes with three interchangeable bands (outdoorsy Nato nylon, 5-link stainless, rubber), and the faces/dials are available in your choice of stainless or jet black, which is sort of weird term, because aren't those things also usually gray?
To ensure your new watch doesn't get lost or confused with your buddy's Swatch, Sea packages each in a smart, zippered travel case, and engraves the underside with two crossed pirate swords below a retro dive helmet, meaning just like with scuba, there's a lot of cool stuff going on under the surface.
