The mother of all diving watches by the Swiss Pioneer of depth and diving security.
Commercial and recreational diving only really started at the end of the 20th century when the parameters of decompression sickness could be safely managed. It has been Swiss scientist Dr. Albert Bühlmann who solved the decompression problem, after years of empirical research and depth records carried out in the open water and in his decompression chamber at the University Hospital of Zürich.

The "raison d'être" of the Bühlman Diving Watches brand is the work and ethics of Dr. A Bühlmann and the design DNA of its watches is founded on the concepts of diving security and usability. The first watch of the brand, the Decompression 01 - realized in collaboration with Watch Angels - is a perfect example its founding principles.
