There’s a joke among those in the watch community: You don’t wear a dive watch to actually dive 300 meters; you wear a dive watch because you want the woman sitting opposite you to think you’re capable of doing so. The good news is, watchmakers are creating pieces that satisfy both camps: the adventurers who need the technologies to take them deeper, and those who simply love the attitude that this genre of timepiece communicates. Read on for the latest crop of watches, all new to 2016, that deliver superior performance, and style, all summer long.
