The original Favre-Leuba Bathy featured a central hand that allowed the measuring of depth. The new model, the Raider Bathy 120 MemoDepth is the latest innovation out of the brand’s Zug Switzerland manufacture.

The new Bathy 120 MemoDepth takes its name because of its central purpose/function. The measuring of depth. Mr. Morf will explain this in the video, but essentially, the watch features an internal gauge that ingresses water while keeping the movement safe in a sealed membrane. The pressure of the water outside causes a sensor to constrict and release and thus accurately display the time. The depth gauge measures to 120 meters, which lends to the model name of the watch.

All of this wizardry is done mechanically, which is a rare feat indeed. There’s also a memory function which can store your past dive depths. Truly a boundary pushing timepiece that deserves to be explored. Priced at CHF 8,500.
