The Code Zero-6 Diver
Havaan Tuvali’s second line, the Code Zero-6 diving watch, has gotten a fair amount of attention: its striking aesthetic combined with an innovative temperature gauge and all-around solid construction have made it pretty hard to beat.
“The idea came from a visit to a local naval museum in Hiroshima,” Eric Yeh explains. “The pressure gauge from the diver’s air tank and its sub temperature display inspired the design of the watch.”
“The gauge-like dial features an 8 o’clock sub-seconds display,” as well as “a one-of-a-kind center temperature sensing indicator, matched with 800 meters of water resistance and an automatic helium escape valve.”
For the temp gauge, “9 temperature indicators located in the center of the dial are liquid crystal, capable of sensing temperature from 0 to 40℃ (5℃ increment).” These change color with temperature fluctuations: the default color is black, while temperature changes will prompt “green, blue or brown. Green is the actual reading, brown is just above the actual reading and blue is just below the actual reading. For example, if the temperature is 25℃, the 25 square will become green; if the temperature is 23℃, the 25 square will turn blue and the 20 square will turn brown.”
