The Watchery Features Temporary Discounts and Free Holiday Shipping on Diver Watches

Designer timepiece retailer The Watchery is promoting temporary discounts on diver watches from Invicta, Rolex and Seiko.

Luxury timepiece seller The Watchery is showcasing short-term discounts on Invicta, Rolex and Seiko diver watches, available online at To celebrate the holidays, all of the diver watches have been discounted with rare savings exceeding, in some cases, 80% off. Also in the season of giving, The Watchery is offering free ground shipping and an extended return policy; any order placed between Nov. 15 and Dec. 31 can be returned until Feb. 1, 2012.

The Watchery's selection of diver watches conforms to the traditional classification, which includes timepieces water resistant to a minimum of 100 meters or 330 feet. The tradition of creating watches with such a high water resistance stems back to the 17th century, when diver or "explorer" watches, as they were called at that time, were custom made. Military demand for watches that could withstand water at such depths increased in the 20th century, and to meet this demand watchmakers began industrially producing diver watches. As commercial work in oceanic fields explored deeper and deeper depths, diver watches became more popular for civilians as well. Today, diver watches have grown in popularity because of their functionality and their fashionable, oversized faces, a style well represented in The Watchery's hundreds of water resistant models.

Offering two prominent collections of diver watches, Invicta's Pro Diver and Russian Diver lines are both popular options. The men's Invicta 1710 of the Pro Diver collection, for example, is reduced by over 80% for the holidays. One of the site's most heavily discounted gold watches, this masculine piece has a gold stainless steel case and matching gold tone hands and markers. The white dial compliments the timpiece's markers and hands, as well as the black genuine calf leather strap. In true diver form, the Invicta watch is resistant up 100 meters and can be purchased for $109.

For women looking for diver watches, The Watchery features Rolex's Datejust and Oyster Perpetual collections. Men can also shop for Rolex diver watches from the classic Submariner and Daytona Collections. Each of the four collections of women's and men's watches features a variety of styles and price points. The Watchery's water-resistant oversized watches by Rolex are quickly selling out of stock, with industry-leading discounts available.

For serious swimmers, Seiko's Superior collection offers diver watches with a water resistance of 200 meters. The men's Seiko Superior SKZ275K1 is one of the most affordable models at $163, a temporary discount of over 60%. This timepiece's appearance reflects the athletic standards associated with diver watches. Its brown rubber strap surrounds a large brown dial, with silver-tone markers contrasting sharply against the dark face.

Alongside its diver timepieces, The Watchery offers other oversized watches for men and women as well as discount ceramic, diamond and gold models. Customers can shop holiday discounts at or purchase watches over the phone by calling 917-655-0065.
