FIELD-1 Mission Timer® Swiss Automatic

ARES Watch Company

We are a small boutique shop with 5 artisans building your FIELD-1 Timer as efficiently as we can without sacrificing quality, attention to detail, and performance - you should expect wait times of 1 to 2 weeks. 

From your initial order to our in-house packaging, your FIELD-1 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 timer build process, manufacturing can take up to 14 build days depending upon the complexity of your timer.

FIELD-1 Movement

Your FIELD-1 Mission Timer is manufactured with a precision Swiss movement:

  • Swiss Automatic: ARES currently uses ETA Swiss movements for our automatic DIVER-1 (ETA 2824) that are assembled, timed, and regulated by ARES watchmakers, including perlage & finishing.
  • Swiss Super Quartz: LASTS 10X longer than standard quartz watches. ARES 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.
