ARES Watch Company

Notify me when this product is available:

SATURDAY 05 JUNE '21 UPDATE: We are cutting large component parts as quickly as we can in order to get your DIVER-1 back in stock! Cases & case backs are coming off of the machines daily and we are working to finish those parts for assembly - the stainless DIVER-1's in quartz & auto will *tentatively* be up for availability by late JUNE.  Please sign up for notifications for when they are restocked!! Our Deep Black DIVER-1's will be a few weeks behind that while we integrate our new AEGIS™ PVD + DLC coating system into our production line. 


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 time frame of your watch build, manufacturing takes time and can vary from 3-5 days (Quartz) to 2-3 weeks (Automatic) depending upon the complexity of 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.
