Deep Div er —

WatchTime - - Watch talk -

— Based out of Mu­nich, UTS has 19 years of ex­pe­ri­ence in pro­duc­ing dive watches of the high­est qual­ity. Back in 2004, the then five-year-old com­pany joined the ranks of brands that have a watch that func­tions up to 3,000 me­ters un­der­wa­ter; a decade later and UTS made the leap into the 4,000me­ter range. In the four years since the UTS 4000M was orig­i­nally re­leased, it’s been re­garded as a fan­tas­tic value propo­si­tion, es­pe­cially for those with a pas­sion for high-oc­tane dive watches that sac­ri­fice noth­ing in the way of reli­a­bil­ity whether un­der the sea or on the land. Taking a watch that deep ex­erts over 5,000 pounds of pres­sure on its crys­tal. To keep it from crack­ing, UTS con­structed a 6-mm-thick sap­phire crys­tal that is then glued to the case and is se­cured by a stain­less-steel ring with seven hex screws.

The watch it­self comes in a 45-mm case crafted from a sin­gle block of sur­gi­cal grade, Ger­man stain­less steel. The bezel is at­tached through a screw lock sys­tem that is con­trolled by a ceramic ball bear­ing mech­a­nism at 2 o’clock. Fi­nally, the case­back and pro­pri­etary lugs are also at­tached to the case via hex screws and in­dus­trial seals and you can set the watch via the screw-down crown at 3 o’clock. Inside the watch is a work­horse ETA 2824-2 move­ment in its “Top”-grade fin­ish. e en­tire case struc­ture is as­sem­bled one-at-a-time by the hand of founder Ni­co­laus Spin­ner at UTS head­quar­ters in Mu­nich. The black or blue dial is highly leg­i­ble and fea­tures Su­per-lu­mi­nova in­dexes, nu­mer­als and hands. Two dif­fer­ent op­tions are still avail­able: the clas­sic time-and­date-only model (€5,500) and an ad­di­tional GMT op­tion (€6,500), both with your choice of ei­ther a rub­ber strap or steel bracelet.
