The do-it-all diver.
Like its namesake, the Hydra is a multifaceted monster. It's a flyer, it's a diver, but it happily does everything else in between. It boasts a prominent wrist presence while remaining classic in size, making its design as versatile as its functions.
Added to its standard features as a dive watch is its GMT movement and use of two different luminous compounds to separate time zones: BGW9 for local and dive times, and C1 to track a second time zone. With its striking appearance, multipurpose utility, and 200 meters / 660 feet of water resistance, the Hydra is the watch to take anywhere and everywhere.

A NEW CLASSIC
The Hydra harkens back to an era when dive watches were actually made for divers. Not only were these an essential part of their kit, they also had to serve as their daily wear.
Presenting a perfect balance of versatility and robustness, the Hydra features sleek case lines and a shade of Admiralty Gray that work with virtually any outfit or strap. With its added GMT function, the Hydra serves as an ideal companion for going on that dive trip to the other side of the world.

Just like its forebears, the Hydra sports a Hesalite crystal. It's stood the test of time on the wrists of explorers, mountaineers, divers, and even astronauts. It has a distinct clarity and charm sapphire just can't replicate.
Afraid of scratches? The Hydra includes a Polywatch tube and polishing cloth to keep it looking like new.
The Hydra offers superior low-light visibility, differentiating between time zones via luminous pigments. The bezel, inner dial markers, hour, minute and seconds hands use bright blue BGW9, while the 24-hour track on the outer dial and GMT hand use green C1.
READY FOR ACTION
Inside the Hydra ticks the Miyota 9075. It features a quickset 12-hour hand, allowing for easy transitioning between time zones. With this functionality, local time can be set quickly at the destination as the movement is running, while the GMT hand remains on the time zone it was tracking.
Of course, the 9075 also features Miyota's unique combination of reliability and accuracy.
← DESIGN NOTES →
There is an undeniable romance when a dive watch is used for its intended purpose, an instrument rather than an ornament.
The Hydra is the embodiment of this spirit: handsome, yet boldly utilitarian.

The Hydra gets its inspiration from models of the late 1960s, when crown guards became a feature of case designs. While these watches were not as svelte as their predecessors, their heightened wrist presence was precisely the point.
The Hydra's signature blue-gray is meant to recall "ghost" bezel inserts, lovingly sun-faded aluminum. Paired with adventurous red accents, it's a bold yet classic look.
