The Shumate dive watch was requested by, and designed for, the U.S. Special Forces Green Berets and one model for the Navy SEALs. The collection is named for Sergeant Major Walter L. Shumate, a legend in the Special Forces community and the man who was instrumental in the creation of the Special Forces Underwater Operations School.
The forged, surgical-grade stainless steel case is 500 meters/1500 feet water-resistant. We use 50 layers of SuperLuminova for outstanding viewing in darkness. The slightly domed sapphire crystal, sapphire exhibition caseback, hardened ceramic dive bezel, helium release valve, and world-class automatic movement (except for model 11113), the Shumate is a top-shelf watch that looks & feels fantastic in any setting and no matter what you’re wearing – a business suit or a wetsuit.
