Professional Watches


Designed in Hawaii  ·  Made in Switzerland

For the people of Hawaii, the ocean is our life. We wake before sunrise to surf and we free-dive after work for dinner. The rhythm of the tides and the phases of the moon control what we do and when we do it. We know Kona winds mean rain and strong trades mean sun. You learn to trust your instincts and you have to trust your gear. Going out at the wrong time might be the last decision you make.

It is against this background of seductive chaos that Bathys Hawaii Watches were created. Our timepieces are made to handle every situation one might face - towering surf, constant saltwater exposure, jagged lava, and remote locations where rescue is simply impossible. With just steel, brass, sapphire, and leather we build watches that you can trust your life with and that will last for decades. Style is absolutely secondary.

Hawaii is a great place to "get away from it all", but you better be able to deal with it.

 

Despite what you may have heard on the internet, our watches do NOT come with a rainbow included. You must seek them out for yourself.

Watchmaking is personal for us. We produce small numbers of timepieces each year. Over 70% of our business is from repeat customers - so we know their names.

Although there are many small watch brands out there, few have achieved the level of quality seen in our timepieces.

Our timepieces are created by hand in Switzerland’s largest clean room. Every component of our watches is meticulously scrutinized: each dial, hand, case, movement - all undergo quality assurance testing both before assembly and after the watch is made. At final assembly, every watch is subjected to water resistance tests that simulate the incredible pressures found at 200 meters below the ocean surface. Not many fail these tests, but we crush the ones that do.

For a diver, knowing the exact time of a dive is a matter of life and death, so we don't screw around.

 A real waterman comes to the ocean and sits, watching. After 15 minutes, he rises and swims out. He's not concerned with 'style' or 'fashion', he is merging his energy with the energy of the world around him.

If you cannot connect with yourself, you will be lost.

The number one reason people drown is not because of strong undertows or crashing waves; it's because they panic - because they give up on themselves. You have to trust what's inside of you. Our watches are designed the same way, from the inside out. First, it has to work; second it has to be comfortable, third is has to be legible, and if in the end it looks OK, that's great.

We design watches you can trust like you trust yourself.
