Our Style editor is off this week, so instead of the usual roundup of style and watch releases we're bringing you dive watches, dive watches and more dive watches. Who doesn't like that? Below you'll find the relatively traditional kind in Mido's Ocean Star and Serica's 5303, but also dive watches that don't look like dive watches from Ressence and Nomos, straps for your dive watch from B&R — and a field watch from the German brand Circula. Hey, it's summer, and frankly we're happy to be swimming in releases of robust timepieces you can take in the water or just about anywhere.

Serica 5303-3 Midnight Blue

Serica is a French microbrand that makes a field watch and a dive watch, and that's it. They're not one of those brands constantly releasing endless new colorways — in fact, the brand previously made monochromatic watches, exclusively. So this new version of their 5305 dive watch with a dark blue dial and "crystal blue" ceramic bezel insert got our attention.

Price: ~$1,130

B&R Endurance Rubber Strap

We're fans of B&R watch straps of all kinds. The new Endurance line of rubber straps combines a kevlar-like finish on top in a TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) material and a FKM rubber underneath with grooves for air and water flow. It's all waterproof and, with a range of stitching color options, it's perfect for dive or other sport watches.

Ressence Type 5 AIT

Not your typical dive watch by far, but a striking one to be sure. With dials that themselves turn to display the time, Ressence watches are exotic to begin with, but this one's only for sale in the Monaco boutique called Art In Time. Only 12 examples are being made.

Price: ~$37,350

Nomos Ahoi Atlantik

German watchmaking star Nomos's dive watch doesn't look like you'd expect a dive watch to: most notably, it lacks the rotating timing bezel. It does, however, boast 200m of water resistance and a generally sporty disposition. And the brand has refreshed the existing watch with some subtle updates, such as the dial's specific hue of blue.

Price: $4,060
