Dive Watch

The most inquisitive minds had been trying to understand how to make watch movements water- and moisture-proof since the end of the 17th century. And the craftsmen of the 20th century managed to do that: various chronometers for divers, sea and river vessels were developed and their mass-production was launched.
But one type of watches particularly stood out from all the rest – dive watches that were produced at the Zlatoust Watch Factory by the order of the Soviet Navy. In the 1950-60s these legendary watches were constant companions of almost every Soviet Navy diver. These watches are unique! They are now still among the biggest watches in the world, having the diameter of 60 mm (not including a crown and lugs) and weighing about 250 grams.
The watches are water- and shock-proof, their stainless steel cases stood the most severe tests and over 100-meter-submersion. Previously, radioactive materials were used in the well-known luminous watch dials.
In the early 1970s, the production of dive watches was discontinued, but the legend lived on.
And their ever-lasting popularity gave the Zlatoust legend the second chance – the dive watch  production was resumed. Even the luminous dial was reproduced! However, all the radioactive materials are removed and replaced with safe ones in today’s watches.
