Autos and Quartz:
TAD will be fullfilling orders in the order in which they are received, as they are received from Ares Watch Co. We anticipate getting every order out in time for the holidays.
The ARES® DIVER-1 GMT Night Ops TAD Edition is a hand-crafted precision time piece that gives you the best of both worlds: with multiple timezone references the GMT allows you to be present, even while away. And with the ARES® Limited Lifetime Guarantee, each U.S. hand-crafted timepiece is guaranteed to give you the one thing you want more of: time.
The DIVER-1 GMT follows the same design parameters of the DIVER-1: reliability, dependability, legibility, and longevity. The reliability of the GMT is in the ARES ETA 2893-2 automatic movement, a robust 40-hour power reserve Swiss-made hand crafted movement, with ARES artistry. The dependability of the GMT comes from the tried & tested 316L stainless steel case and sapphire front and back covers. The GMT, with it’s beautiful movement and display-back case, is built for adversity with it’s CERTIFIED 1000FT/30 ATM depth rating. Carrying over the lume from the standard DIVER-1, the GMT features the same 5-layer application of Swiss C-3 SuperLumiNova: the industry standard in legibility, regardless of environment. And the GMT is backed by one of the strongest Warranties in the industry: Lifetime on the the case construction and a full 5 year Limited Warranty on the ARES ETA movement - which includes one complimentary service.
The Ares Diver-1 GMT is a hand-crafted and hand-finished precision timer
Before I became a watchmaker, I worked for the CIA. My entire professional life had been in service - from police officer to Federal Air Marshal Service to the Central Intelligence Agency. When it ended, I had to decide what was next in my transition to a different kind of life. “Well, if you could wake up tomorrow and be anything, what would it be?” my wife wondered, a challenge in her voice. My answer came clearly and quickly. “I’d make watches,” I said. “I’d be a watchmaker.”
I have been fascinated by mechanical wrist watches and pocket watches and clocks my entire life. Cheap or expensive, vintage or modern, cuckoo clocks like the one hanging at my Grandma’s house, or mantle clocks, like the one that kept time in my childhood home, with large brass hands and a sing-song quarter hour chime. Each in their own way are regal keepers of the past and guardians of the future. I love them all. I bought my first watch when I was 14, after a summer of picking spinach and saving my money. My Citizen Promaster dive watch arrived in a yellow scuba tank package, and today, 35 years later, it sits next to an heirloom Rolex- a gift from a mentor and friend. To me, they are equally wonderful.
My professional life has been built on precision, integrity, and commitment to hard work and exceeding expectations. These same values are the heart of ARES. We commit to excellent craftsmanship, service, and exceeding your expectations. We are excited to create our own vision of the regal keepers of the past and guardians of the future.
Time is the single characteristic that binds all of our lives equally, regardless of who or where on this earth we are. Time is the only constant that we note as a species, both when we are born and when we die.
