I do love this watch design, and I'm looking forward to seeing what's new and what's next. I would own and wear this watch (computer) as well. Put a reasonable price tag on it and I'm in.

@emenezes I own countless Casio's, and they do indeed fill the same function as my mechanical watches. More so when when the weather elements are lousy. I wouldn't take my grail mechanics into that kind of environment.

I do understand your point, it isn't lost on me..

@Maximilien The depth gauge on my models are digital. The model pictured here has analog hands, which clearly are easier to read.

@CG I agree with you on the price CG. It should come in a bit lower than $1000. 00.  It's a considerable price jump over my previous Aqua Master Watches. Still, all in all, I believe it's a great value for what you receive in a well made diving tool. I would consider giving my past models a rest and upgrading here.

A very well written article by Maximilien! I own two previous model Aqua Land pieces, and they have never failed me or given me one scintilla of trouble.  The best part is they are extremely accurate with the measurements most concerning diver's. I have calibrated mine against my dive computers and my old school hand written manual findings and they have always been spot on. A  pretty fine accomplishment considering they are not exactly treated with the greatest respect when you bang them around under water, or they get dropped on the deck of the dive boat and stepped on by a foot or a flipper.. (Accidents happen). These tools just come up smiling and the fit and finish are excellent. The only service these watches have had are the replacement of batteries over the years, and the frequency has not been excessive. I also have replaced the band on the one unit, but that's seven years of use.

The fact that this is solar powered is a huge plus, and a welcomed change.

Best of luck in your pursuit of Dive Master qualification Maximilien.

I love the Ball watch company. I have been a fan for several years. It's a quality time machine.

I'm really uncertain as to what the negativity is about regarding this year's choice's. There are plenty of beautiful watches between 15 K all the way up to infinity. In a very down economy, (started in 08 and is recovering nicely in 14 and beyond) luxury watch makers cannot continue to redesign new watches every year. Especially a market as finicky as our own beloved horology. I'm guessing we are own worst enemy because if you were a watchmaker, trying to figure out what might titillate a new buyer  has got to be mind boggling. If a company makes a mistake and turns out an unpopular new design, the losses must be astronomical, especially a design of a 30-50  piece run. It's not inconceivable that it could financially devastate  a smaller watch company. 


SIHH is a big dollar event for big dollar pocketbooks. Baselworld is a bit more rounded to the Uber-Average buyer.


Stop complaining and look around at all the magnificent choices we have to date. There is something for everyone, from Seiko to Ulysses Nardin and beyond. 


There is a watch for every type of spending habit.


Take a breath and enjoy what lies in front of you...

That's some fine grail watch choice. Ms. Livingston said it herself, "nothing looks like it, it's instantly recognizable". Clearly stating once again from someone who knows the fashion industry, a watch IS a fashion statement as well as a timing instrument. Choosing the Happy Diamond is Quite a statement.

The watch looks great on you Ariel. I can see why you enjoyed the "wear ability" so much. As far as it is intuitive, I'm afraid those days left us when the simple Casio changed into the Pro-Trek. The manual must be consulted, or hunt around the manufacturer's website or YouTube for a video regarding operation. Well done article and video presentation!

@davidehi My hope is the prices will come down. I am a big fan of atomic and GPs controlled watches since Casio made it affordable for the common man. I would enjoy owning this watch or one from Seiko's Aston line.

I was wearing my Late 70's Orient SK diver for the last week and it's been a blast. This was a Japanese domestic issue model, so few made their way to the States, Keeps time beautifully, and is built like a bank vault. I do love Orient watches...
