Pre-order FAQ:

* Why can't I make my final selection today? There will also be a 12-hr GMT aluminum insert version but we won't have pictures available until August 2017.

* Why are there only 75 slots available?  We wanted to be able to ship all of the pre-orders within 6-8 weeks of shipments beginning.

* Why are you collecting nearly the entire price today? This way we can keep the number of slots available lower and complete pre-order shipments more quickly.

* Please note that we will be traveling between July 16th and August 6th so any deposit refund requests during that time may take longer to process than normal.




 

The Ready-to-Wear Paradive is our interpretation of the watch issued to US Special Forces and CIA maritime units from the 1960s up to the early 1980s. The original watch was especially developed for the US military and never sold commercially. The only way to get one was to earn one. We took the original and modernized and upgraded the design.

Our concept was to produce a watch that the modern US military might have requisitioned if the watch was re-introduced today. We replaced the bi-directional bezel with the modern safety feature of the uni-directional bezel for diving, ensuring that one would always under-estimate the bottom time remaining. The original acrylic crystal was upgraded to an anti-reflective coated sapphire crystal and the monocoque case replaced with a two piece design that is significantly easier to service. Several bezel inlay styles are available including a) anodized aluminum 12-gmt b) anodized aluminum time-elapse insert, and c) acrylic 12-hr GMT insert.
