Limes is a German watch maker with three generations of family owned watch makers behind it. They are based in Pforzheim and have created some stylish watches already. Recently, they launched the Endurance sport range of watches. The features of the Limes Endurance Leviathan includes stainless steel case with a diameter of 44.5 mm, thickness of 13.5 mm, water resistance up to a depth of 300 meters, uniquely stylized bezel plated with PVD etc. The simple but elegant dial has an hour hand, minute hand and seconds hand, and a date window at 6 O’ clock position. The movement that is running the watch operations is a Sellita SW 200 automatic which is pretty much on par with the ETA 2824 caliber from Swatch group. There is nothing fancy about this watch and it is designed with practical features expected from such a device. At a cost of around $ 1,500, you can have this watch in a variety of bracelet options. This would be a great buy for people who are looking for their very first dive watch.
What type of watches does Limes create? The watch maker can be grouped in to the entry level of mechanical watch makers like TAG Heuer, Oris, Alpina, Vostok, Victornix, Sinn etc. They do have a variety of manually wound and automatic watches in their stable. Most of their watches fall in the price range between $ 1,000 and $ 2,000, with the average hovering around $ 1,500. They do have a few really complicated watches that cost you more than $ 3,000 to purchase. The line of watches in their sport and diving watch collection is quite impressive. Limes Endurance Leviathan Dive Watch is one of the most impressive ones among them all.
The Leviathan can be purchased either in a rubberized leather strap or on a satin finished steel bracelet. The former costs € 995 or $ 1290 and the latter costs € 1195 or $ 1550. If you are looking for a watch in this price range, this would be a good choice for your needs. From what I have seen and felt about the watch, it looks like a quality creation from the watch maker and is going to serve you very well for many years to come.
