Clear and

Time is the continued sequence of existence and events that occurs in an apparently irreversible succession from the past, through the present, and into the future. The Diver-1 Mission Timer features a clear, distinct, and legible dial. A quick glance should be all that is required to note what time it is.

C3 Super-

The generous application of C3 Super-Luminova ensures that the time is legible even in the darkest conditions. Super-LumiNova is a strontium aluminate–based non-radioactive and nontoxic photoluminescent pigments for illuminating markings, typically on watches.

Time and

The SPD Edition Ares Diver-1 MIssion Timer comes with the branded OEM rubber strap. Also included is the PDW Ti-RING Strap in orange, and the latest generation of the PDW EWB Compass Kit 2.0. This button sized survival compass has set the high standard in the industry since its inception and adds a whole other layer of functionality to this tool watch. This versatile combination allows the user to know their time and place.

Sapphire Exhibition

Underscoring the many fine details of this rugged timepiece is the sapphire crystal exhibition caseback. A transparent window on the back of the watch case that allows the user to view of the movement and internal mechanisms. It provides an opportunity to appreciate the craftsmanship and technical details of the watch.

Awsome watch

Really great watch by Ares, I love the attention to detail, the smooth sweeping second hand and the Swiss Movement, definitely a very high quality watch. The dial on the watch and the bezel have awesome luminescence and the Kraken adds just a nice touch to the face. The orange strap is really nice quality and feels great on the wrist, and the case and everything you get with it is just a very nice touch and all in all a really cool collaboration by PDW! It goes great with the rest of my SPD gear.

Solid timepiece

Really pleased with the overall fit, finish, and performance. This timepiece seems bulletproof—rugged and ready for whatever I throw at it. I ended up swapping out the safety orange for one of the NATO Black Ti straps. Very pleased with the subdued look and matching hardware. Looking forward to some maritime use OCONUS next month.
