If you have any interest in military watches, then the name Cabot Watch Company (otherwise known as CWC) will probably be familiar to you. CWC was founded in 1972 by Ray Mellor—who for some time worked for Hamilton Watch Company—and the brand started out by taking on contracts with the UK Ministry of Defence to supply watches to the British Armed Forces. The Rolex Submariner Mil-Sub had been the watch issued to Royal Navy divers until the early 1980s when it was replaced by the CWC Auto Diver first for a short run, and then the quartz version of the same watch from 1982/83.

Open to the public
Initially, these replica diving watches UK were not available or intended for public sale, but UK Army Surplus store Silvermans began purchasing watches from CWC to sell directly to the public. When its former owner decided to retire, CWC was sold to Silvermans, which still produces watches under the CWC name, selling them directly to the public and to the British Armed Forces today. CWC is planning to release a reissue of the 1980 Royal Navy automatic diver later this year to the same specifications as the original, but this time updated with a sapphire crystal and vintage lume markings.
The CWC Royal Navy Black Diver Automatic Mk. 2 reviewed here (and currently available for £949, or about $1,220) is offered in several variants. The case can either be finished in matte stainless steel or with a black PVD coating, there is an option for either an automatic or a quartz movement, and date or no-date variants are also available. CWC also produces a day/date “SBS” version based on the requirements of the Special Boat Service.
Making a different watch
Making a watch is not that difficult. Plenty of manufacturers have shown that they can deliver a good quality, mechanical watch, and not only in Switzerland. Germany, the US, Russia, and of course the Far East, with Japan in the lead, prove this point. But as always the devil is in the details.
While many of these watches can tell time with a reasonable amount of accuracy, making them even more accurate, will require an exponentially greater investment in knowledge and machines. The same goes when making them smaller, or thinner, or better decorated.

These are also often the criteria that set apart Haute Horlogerie watches from its much less expensive siblings. It also answers at least part of, the question why Haute Horlogerie replica watches uk carry a different price tag. A good example of this is black polishing, in which a steel part is giving such a smooth and perfect finish that from certain angles, it looks pitch black. This is not only extremely time-consuming, but it also requires the hand of a master, and to become such a master requires an almost spiritual dedication.
While some decorations do have a function, for example, blueing prevents oxidation of the part, many of them are only employed to make the watch visual more pleasing. Compare it to the effort exotic car manufacturers go through these days to make the engine bay great to look at. It are these details that greatly influence how you experience the product, car or watch alike. While they all serve the same basic purpose, regardless of their price, it are the details that make them either a modest timekeeper, or a proud member of the Haute Horlogerie, which is essentially nothing less then a work of art!
