Fifty Fathoms Tech Gombessa Dive Watch

Published By

Also dubbed Act 2 of the Fifty Fathoms’ 70th birthday, the Tech Gombessa Dive Watch is the second release for the subline’s platinum anniversary. While Act 1 was essentially the inaugural 1953 model reissued, the Tech Gombessa leans hard into mechanic efficiencies, from its 120-hour power reserve, to its decompression valve and titanium case. This construction ups the toughness factor, while giving it a slightly gunmetal finish. 

Aesthetically, this watch is like the industrial deep diver of the anniversary acts, what the Rolex Deepsea is to the Submariner. The Gombessa Project, by the way, is a conservation initiative that partnered in developing this endurance diver. It doesn’t lack shine though—its bright, sizable cardinals and high-polish bezel bring class to this quintessential bigger-is-better tool.
