Limes 1 Tausend GMT dive watch on eBayA while ago I mentioned the new Limes Endurance 1 Tausend Diver watch that was due for release soon. The watch had a wonderful Germanic utility feel to it, and I looked forward to seeing one. The Endurance was a deviation on the existing Limes 1 Tausend (one thousand, as in the depth rating), which is pictured here.

This particular watch has an automatic ETA 2893-2 movement, that includes the GMT complication. The dedicated GMT 24 hour hand is nicely done with a large red arrow providing nice visibility, without being too distracting. Actually, this is one of the clearest GMT diving watches I have seen.

Limes, like Sinn is a maker of high quality, but aggressively prices German “sport” watches. One thing that makes Limes a bit unique is the fact that they make all their own cases. Most smaller watches companies essentially source most of their parts. This is not a problem, but Limes takes great pride in constructing well-made cases fit for their watches.

Although 1000 meter watches are becoming more popular, they are still a difficult feat, ensuring structural integrity. A watch maker is required to ensure that water does not leak in through the caseback and crown, and the sapphire crystal must be thick enough to keep from imploding.

A Limes 1 Tausend GMT is available on eBay right now for well under $1000, which is an excellent deal. I can easily recommend this, and almost all German Limes watches. This is because of their quality, and dedication to being bold, useful, and lasting timepieces.
