DIVER-1 Mission Timer®

ARES Watch Company


From your initial order to our in-house packaging, your Mission Timer is built for you. Once you place your order, your watchmaker builds your mission timer every step of the way. Because we offer a few distinct models we strive to maintain an inventory of “small batch” pieces in stock. While every attempt is made to shorten the timeframe of your watch build, manufacturing takes time and can vary from 7-10 days (Quartz) to 3-5 weeks (Automatic) depending upon the complexity or your timer. 


DIVER-1 Movement

Your DIVER-1 Mission Timer is manufactured with a precision Swiss movement, either quartz or automatic.  

  • Swiss Super Quartz: LASTS 10X longer than standard quartz watches. ARES currently uses the 715Li 5-jewel gold plated Swiss analog quartz, manufactured by Ronda, with a 10-year lithium-ion battery and End-of-Life indicator
  • Swiss Automatic: ARES currently uses ETA Swiss movements for our automatic DIVER-1 (ETA 2824) and our automatic GMT (ETA 2893-2) that are assembled & tuned by ARES watchmakers, including perlage & finishing.
