DIVER-1 Mission Timer® Lithium-Ion Quartz

ARES Watch Company

We are a small boutique shop with 5 artisans building your Mission Timer as efficiently as we can without sacrificing quality, attention to detail, and performance - if your Mission Timer isn't in stock you should expect wait times of 1 to 2 weeks. 

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 custom Swiss Li-Ion timer build process, manufacturing can take 1 to 2 weeks depending upon the complexity of your timer.
