When you're ninety feet below sea level, your main concern is how much time is left in your oxygen tank before you must ascend. The difference between life and death relies on this simple metric, time. We have been obsessed with measuring this metric for years now. Having used many different digital devices, the one constant for all our dives is that we always keep a mechanical backup. With a precision built timepiece, technology failure is a non issue. The concept of developing a dive brand came from a our affinity for both water and watches. Feeling comfortable 90 feet below the water’s surface does not come natural for most people. However, Archon has spent nearly two years in development to provide this relief in the form of our debut timepiece, the Archon Seafarer - Serial Number 1.
