Aragon Divemaster EVO

ARAGON A253WHT Divemaster EVO 50mm Automatic

The Divemaster EVO is a diving watch from Aragon (obviously) and it’s one of the brand’s best watches for diving specifically. It boasts K1 mineral glass that’s more durable and tough than standard mineral glass, but not much more expensive. It doesn’t have the scratch resistance of sapphire, but it’s hard to break and it doesn’t get cloudy over time.

This is an automatic watch that features Japanese SII NH35 movement that is often used in Seiko watches. If you own one of those and you’re happy with the performance, don’t expect anything less from your Aragon Divemaster EVO.

The watch is water resistant up to 660 feet, like you would expect from any decent diving watch. It also features a screw-down crown that stays put, so you can’t accidentally bump it underwater. And it has a date window with red outlines that make it very easy to spot.

But perhaps the most interesting – or at the very least noticeable – part of the watch is the diver’s bezel. It’s a standard rotating bezel that allows you to track how long you’ve been underwater, and it features luminous markings for easy reading in the dark. Additionally, the markings on the watch face aren’t luminous, but the background and the hands are, so you will be able to tell time underwater without too much effort.

The case and the bracelet are both made from stainless steel with a brushed matte finish. This particular model boasts a black case and bracelet, but you can get the Divemaster EVO in some other colors as well.

Specifications

  • 50mm case with K1 crystal glass
  • 24mm brushed stainless steel bracelet
  • Japanese SII NH35 automatic movement
  • Water resistant up to 660 feet
  • Diver’s bezel with luminous markings

Aragon Antigravity

The Antigravity collection from Aragon features several different watch designs that have a few things in common. They feature a stainless steel case design with a dome-shaped mineral crystal glass cover, as well as a shiny fixed bezel. But the dial differs from one model to another, and this is where you can let your personality shine.

Grab the NH38 open-heart dial if you prefer simple watches, as it features just the hands and markers. But go with the more detailed Chrono dial of the 7750, if you want Valjoux 7750 Automatic movement, an inner tachymeter bezel and day/date windows.

There’s also the NE57 model, which boasts a power unit with a battery level indicator on the dial. It’s somewhere between the other two models in terms of dial details, so it’s a great option if you want extra functions but not a cluttered dial.

Specifications

  • Dome-shaped mineral crystal glass cover
  • Stainless steel bracelet with push button deployment clasp
  • Fixed outer bezel with screw down crown
  • Automatic movement
  • Water resistant up to 660 feet

Aragon Sea Charger

Aragon Men's Sea Charger 50mm Automatic-self-Wind Watch with Stainless-Steel Strap, Silver, 29 (Model: A081LIM)

The Sea Charger is an automatic self-winding watch made from stainless steel. It features a unidirectional diver’s bezel, mineral crystal glass and a screw down crown that guarantee the watch stays waterproof up to 660 feet. Mineral crystal is not the toughest or most durable material for a glass cover, but it is the best material for the price point.

The 50mm case is a great size for most people. It’s not too big on an average sized hand, but it’s just large enough that you can tell time with easy and spot the luminous markers immediately. Yes, the hands, minute markers and even the numbers on the bezel are all luminous, so you should have no problems reading them in pitch dark.

On top of that, the second hand and the date window are outlined with red, which really makes them stand out against the green background. It naturally draws your eyes to them, so it’s easy to spot the date. There’s also some red on the screw-down crown, which helps you avoid it underwater.

The stainless steel band is 29mm wide and it features a polished finish. It is wider than usual on similar watches, but at least it looks good – the multiple rows of links create a unique design that isn’t present in many other watches.

Specifications

  • 50mm case with mineral crystal glass
  • 29mm stainless steel band
  • Automatic self-winding movement
  • Unidirectional diver’s bezel with luminous markings
  • Water resistant up to 660 feet

Best Luminous Watch

Aragon Hercules T100

The Hercules collection from Aragon is the brand’s first attempt at incorporating Tritium tubes into their design. These are luminous tubes that glow in the dark in different colors, and require no solar charging beforehand. This means that your watch will light up in the dark even if it hasn’t been out in the sun for days!

The collection features a few different designs that are available in 44mm and 50mm cases. The main difference between the designs is the number of Tritium tubes that are in the watch – the 31-tube version has actual numbers on the dial, while the flat tube version just features time markings. The bezel also lights up but it’s filled with standard lume and not Tritium.

All the Hercules models are in a stainless steel case and feature a 24mm stainless steel bracelet with a push-button deployment clasp. The glass is K1 crystal, the bezel is a unidirectional diver’s one and there’s a standard screw-down crown. All Hercules options are water-resistant up to 660 feet, making them decent options for water adventures.

Specifications

  • Tritium tubes stay luminous up to 25 years
  • SII NH35 automatic movement 24 jewels
  • Stainless steel 44/50mm case
  • 24mm stainless steel bracelet with push button deployment clasp
  • Unidirectional diver’s bezel with super luminova
  • K1 crystal glass cover

Aragon Superjet

The Superjet is an automatic Aragon watch that features SII NH36A movement with 24 jewels. It has day and date windows on the dial at the three o’clock position and otherwise a rather simple watch face. The hour markings and hands are all luminous, as are the markings on the unidirectional rotating bezel.

Although this is not strictly a diver’s watch, thanks to the bezel and the screw-down crown, you can comfortably use it for diving. The bezel allows you to track how long you’ve been underwater, while the luminous accents on the dial make it really easy to tell the time in the dark. Also, this watch is water-resistant up to 1650 feet, which is superior to most other Aragon watches that are marketed as diving watches.

The glass over the dial is K1 crystal, which boasts great durability and scratch resistance. The case and the bracelet both feature stainless steel with a brushed finish for a simpler design. But considering that the dial and half of the bezel are bright red with green markings, I wouldn’t necessarily call the overall design of the Superjet subtle.

It is a conversation starter for sure, and a great watch for you if you like to stand out. But in case the red is a bit much for you, just know that this model is available in several different color combinations, including that bright blue that we traditionally see on Omega diving watches.

Specifications

  • SII NH36A automatic movement with 24 jewels
  • 50mm brushed stainless steel case
  • 24mm brushed stainless steel bracelet
  • Water resistant up to 1650 feet
  • Black and red unidirectional rotating bezel
  • Day/Date windows on dial

Most Unique Design

Aragon Hydraumatic

The Hydraumatic is probably the most interesting watch Aragon’s ever made design-wise. The newest model of the watch features a skeleton design with the mechanism exposed, which is just mesmerizing. And if it’s not enough to see the jewels of the Japanese movement, the unique bracelet design is another good reason to consider the Hydraumatic.

The automatic watch features Japanese SII NH70 movement in a 46/50mm case that’s protected with K1 crystal glass. It is water-resistant up to 660 feet, and thanks to the screw-down crown and the luminous hands and markings, you can easily take this for a spin in the water.

The bracelet feels very secure on your wrist even without a security clasp. The springs keep it tightly in place as it adjusts to the size of your wrist. If the watch is a bit big for you, the ends of the bracelet will overlap, which can cause some scuffs and scratches with everyday wear.

Specifications

  • Skeleton design exposes the movement mechanism
  • Stainless steel 46/50mm case
  • Water resistant up to 6660 feet
  • 28mm bracelet with unique design
  • K1 mineral crystal glass
  • Fixed bezel with screw down crown

Best Aragon Watch With Chronograph

Aragon Skyguardian Chrono

The Skyguardian watch is quite a unique option from Aragon. It doesn’t look anything like a standard Aragon watch, with both minor and major differences from the general look of the brand. Starting with the date window at twelve o’clock, the hollow hands and finally the tachymeter instead of the classic diving bezel we’ve seen on every watch so far.

If you’re familiar with tachymeter bezels, you can read more about them in our guide on types of watch bezels. For now, it’s enough to know that they’re used to track speed, which makes these types of watches especially popular with racing drivers. You can also use a tachymeter to track running speed, but that required some basic math to calculate your exact speed.

This is one of Aragon’s more affordable watches as well, so what’s the catch? Well, unlike the other watches from the brand we’ve seen so far, this one features quartz movement that uses a battery as its primary source of power.

Also, this is one of Aragon’s lightest watches you can get your hands on, so if you don’t like feeling like you got a brick on your wrist it’s worth checking out. It weighs just 3.8 ounces thanks to that leather bracelet! The standard weight of other, fully stainless steel watches is around 10 ounces.

The watch dial is quite interesting – it features hour markings and three smaller watches that indicate time, minutes and seconds. And there’s also a raised bezel around the dial that features minute markings, and which gives the Skyguardian a sophisticated 3D look.

Specifications

  • 44mm stainless steel case
  • SII VK73 Flyback Chronograph Quartz movement
  • 22mm leather bracelet
  • Tachymeter bezel

Aragon Gauge 3G

ARAGON A321PUR Gauge 3G Swiss Chrono Automatic LE

The Gauge 3G is Aragon’s most interesting watch design-wise. It features inner and outer bezels, a concave watch dial and luminous hours and bezel markings, as well as hands. And it has a unidirectional rotating bezel with a unique design.

One thing I have to note is that the Gauge 3G watch is available with several different mechanisms. One model features a Swiss Valjoux 7750 automatic chronograph movement with 25 jewels, while the simpler version of the watch boasts SII NH35A automatic movement with 24 jewels. What’s the difference between the two? Well some $2,700, so be careful which model you’re buying!

There’s also a more reasonably priced option with Swiss Chrono movement (Caliber 8040.N with 13 jewels), so you really got plenty of choice!

Depending on which model you go for, you’ll either get a very simple or a very detailed watch dial. The simple version features everything you see in a basic watch – markings for hours and minutes, a date window, and the three hands. But the more detailed version of the Gauge 3G will feature a few more functions (like a stopwatch etc.), and even tell you which day of the week it is.

And even though the dial has more going on it doesn’t look cluttered or confusing, just a lot more interesting.

As for the strap material, your choice is between leather and stainless steel. Both options are available in combination with different dials and movements, so it should be easy to pick out something you will love.

Specifications

  • 50/55 mm case with K1 crystal glass
  • SII NH35A automatic movement/Swiss Valjoux 7750 automatic chronograph movement
  • Leather/Stainles steel bracelet
  • Water resistant up to 990 feet
  • Unidirectional rotating bezel with luminous markings
