Mankind have been exploring the underwater world for centuries, and 1926 was a game changing year for all sea explorers. Made with a hermetically sealed case for optimal protection the first waterproof wristwatch marked a major step forward – making timekeeping underwater an everyman luxury. This collection is a humble celebration of that remarkable achievement.
The ocean and its wildlife have always acted as a great inspiration for us. With our Turtle watches, we want to give back to the turtles. We do this by supporting the Turtle Foundation.
For each Turtle watch sold, we ensure that 20 hatchlings of the endangered species Green Turtle can get a safe start in life.
With the launch of the Blue Turtle Edition we saved more than 20.000 turtles!

I love the beautiful, deep and subtle black shine of the dial and the way the sapphire makes the dial look at oblique angles. It's a quartz watch, but the sweep of the second hand is nearly as smooth as that of a mechanical watch thanks to the movement. I am very happy with my purchase, it's one of the watches I most often intentionally look at when I am wearing it.
Det er et super flot ur som jeg er meget glad for.
Dog er den grønne farve lidt mørkere i virkeligheden end på jeres billeder.
Men det er stadig rigtig flot og har ikke nogen betydning for om jeg ville købe det igen. For det ville jeg!
The clasp on the 5 link bracelet is a little tricky, but otherwise a good watch for the price.
It’s a great watch. Nicely made. Bracelet is excellent. I set it against my atomic Casio 2 weeks ago and it is still spot on. Lume is not great. AV were good to deal with. Watch arrived promptly,well packaged. All in very pleased. Highly recommend. Thanks AV. Roger
