Reviewing The Best Orange Dive Watches


They offer a very bright alternative to the mass of black and white dialed watches available, and visually pop off of the wrist.A lot of people are completely obsessed with orange dive watches, and for good reason.

Why are bright orange dials so popular on dive watches?

When DOXA first released their SUB diver aimed at both professional and recreational divers,Orange faced dive watches have been a classic look since the 1960’s,.

They chose orange after testing various bright colors at depth to see what offered the best contrast between the dial and the luminous tritium paint used on the hands.

Ever since it’s release, the DOXA SUB has been ‘the orange diver’, which is why their latest watch, the SUB6000T released beginning of this year, is number one on this list.

Can’t afford the DOXA?

Don’t worry, neither can I. I’ve included plenty of mid-range and entry-level watches further down the list, such as the Seiko ‘Orange Monster’ or Orient ‘Orange Mako’.

These are extremely popular and well made watches, and will definitely satisfy your need for an orange dial.
