A Nat Geo Shark Photographer Designed This 1000M Zodiac Dive Watch

If there’s anyone who knows exactly what qualities a dive watch needs in order to perform in the field, it’s legendary National Geographic shark photographer Andy Mann. And, as it turns out, he’s actually pared that expertise into a partnership with the watchmakers at Zodiac to help create this limited-edition Super Sea Wolf 68 Saturation timepiece.

For reference, Mann didn’t just trust Zodiac to get the job done right — though he could have. Rather, he was intimately involved in every step of the design process. The watch features a reliable STP 3-13 automatic movement housed inside a 44mm 1970s-inspired steel case, a 44-hour power reserve, a dial done up in a gradient meant to mimic the look of sunlight from beneath the surface of the ocean, a rotating dive timer bezel, and a whopping 1,000m water-resistance rating. And the whole thing is finished off with an engraved caseback based on one of Mann’s famous photos. The watch will be available soon for a price of $2,295.

Purchase: $2,295
