The Agat Diver watch is a timepiece which has emerged as a celebrity from Russia’s past. The Zlatoust (Agat) Watch factory, named after the city where it’s located, originally produced watches for Red Army officers and clocks for military machines, such as tanks and planes. Agat Diver watches, or “Zlatoust Vodolaz” watches, were also produced to serve the Russian military. More specifically, they served the Soviet Navy, finding their way onto almost every Navy diver’s wrist in the 1950s. Production was ceased in the 1970s, only to resume decades later when demand for mechanical watches resurrected. The massive case size (60mm) along with the large luminous numerals and canteen-style crown make for a unique look. In the same manner, the lack of a diver’s bezel further differentiates this diver. These watches are a piece of Russian history, of military diving itself, sure to satisfy anybody’s knack for uncommon timepieces. All things considered, it seems like the only question is, do you have the wrist for it?
