What watch would Aquaman wear?

A Diver with a Twist - the Turbine Diver from Perrelet

This is the Turbine Diver from Perrelet.  I have to say that I really like this one.  Perhaps the biggest reason is sensory - the spinning turbine dial is (to me at least) reminiscent of the propeller of a submarine.

As with any good dive watch, there is a function for timing dive durations.  And here again, Perrelet swims somewhat against the stream by utilizing an inner bezel as opposed to an outer.  I think that this is a better solution for a few reasons - it allows for a larger display as it does not have to be squeezed onto a rotating outer bezel, it is not susceptible to the same dings and marks as an outer rotating bezel, and because it is "under glass" it improves visibility for aging and less forgiving eyes.

47.5 mm and water resistant to 300 meters, this might indeed be the watch that Aquaman himself wears!  

The Turbine Diver is powered by the automatic P-331 movement based on the new Manufacture-made Alternance 10 caliber.

The Turbine Diver is available in stainless steel, and stainless steel/black DLC coated  steel.

Here are the details straight from Perrelet -
