The DIVER-1 GMT follows the same design parameters of the DIVER-1: reliability, dependability, legibility, and longevity. The reliability of the GMT is in the ARES ETA 2893-2 automatic movement, a robust 40-hour power reserve Swiss-made hand crafted movement, with ARES artistry. The dependability of the GMT comes from the tried & tested 316L stainless steel case and sapphire front and back covers. The GMT, with it’s beautiful movement and display-back case, is built for adversity with it’s CERTIFIED 1000M/100ATM depth rating. Carrying over the lume from the standard DIVER-1, the GMT features the same 5-layer application of Swiss C-3 SuperLumiNova: the industry standard in legibility, regardless of environment. And the GMT is backed by one of the strongest Warranties in the industry: Lifetime on the the case construction and a full 5 year Limited Warranty on the ARES ETA movement - which includes one complimentary service.
