Our divers watches are assembled around a highly-reliable movement to give you the ability to maintain the watch with us directly or with another service.
The Miyota calibre Nº 8217 is an analogue automatic movement, assembled in Japan.
It is produced in-house by high-speed automatic assembly lines and undergoes strict quality checks to ensure long-lasting design.
The component includes repairable metal clockwork with a very powerful stepper motor and fixed pulse.
With its extra-low carbon content and added Molybdenum, type 316L stainless steel is incredibly strong and extremely resistant to corrosion from seawater or acidic liquids.
It’s also magnetic resistant, unlike the general-use stainless steel grade of 201 or 304L.
We select 316L as the choice of material to provide affordable, unique divers watches without ever having to compromise on quality.
Every watch is built with British and imported parts and assembled in our workshop.

When it comes to our watches, we always want to hear what our followers think.
The customer service from Jon and the team at WT Author was kind and knowledgeable, I will remember that for a long time, it convinced me to buy the watch alone. Watch itself is exactly how it was advertised.
