DEEP BLUE Depth Master 3000m Dive Watch

DEEP BLUE Watches makes its Perpetuelle debut with an impressively spec’d dive watch, the new DEEP BLUE Depth Master 3000.  The 3,000 meter (about 9,800 feet) depth rating is what caught my eye — very few brands offer watches with such a rating, and those that do are among the elite — think Rolex, Breitling, Bell & Ross, Girard-Perregaux, Hublot, and CX Swiss Military, among others — so this is a nice accomplishment for DEEP BLUE and puts them in very good company.   Based on price points of its other models, I would guess the Depth Master 3000m dive watch will price near $1,000, which is remarkably affordable for such performance.  As you can see for yourself, the watch looks great!  Note, however, that it is a monster on the wrist (49mm diameter 19.5mm thick!)!

49mm stainless steel case (19.5mm thick),  sapphire crystal and the rotating bezel has a sapphire insert, 3000 meter water resistance,  helium escape valve, automatic mechanical movement (Miyota 9015 (Japan))

Looking at DEEP BLUE more broadly now — while I’m still new to the brand, my initial review indicates that New York-based DEEP BLUE competes in the sub-$1,000 dive watch segment with a sweet spot near $500.   Lower price points are likely to use of Japanese movements rather than Swiss; the brand sells direct online as well as through a popular television home shopping network.  I hope to keep them on my radar.

    Beautiful watch. Did they make a version for female divers?

    Looks like DeepBlue is finally stepping their game up! I used to think their watches were kinda cheesy but this one is really nice.

    So, is this a ISO certified diver or is it self promotion? Stan has been asked many times on several watch forums to verify how he tests his watches with nary a response except on cable TV where he sells these watches. Even at that it is a generic statement at best and then it is expanded to include many dive clubs, law enforecement etc ………. You get the picture. I happen to own the above watch and it is very doubtful it is 3000m certified.
