Swiss Made Dive watch

Each watch is individually assembled in Switzerland in our workshops by one skilled watchmaker with the utmost concentration

Delma’s hometown, Lengnau near Biel/Bienne, lies at the core of the Swiss watchmaking region which stretches from Geneva in the south-west to Basel in the north-east. ZeitZentrum, the only German-speaking watchmaking-school in Switzerland, is located just one kilometre from Delma’s headquarters and all of our highly-qualified horologists hold a degree from this prestigious institution.


See how a real Swiss watch compare to a cheaper Japanese watch, when a professional watchmaker breaks down two different watches; one watch with Japanese movement and another with Swiss movement.

A Look at Periscope Automatic

The Periscope’s namesake from 1969 is the pioneer of Delma’s submariner tradition as the company’s first timepiece designed for diving.
