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.We include a top of the line, custom dive bracelet AND an Italian leather strap (with tools to swap them).
The Shumate is a top-shelf, extremely refined yet rugged dive watch that looks & feels fantastic in any setting and no matter what you’re wearing – a business suit or a wetsuit. Check the specs below for all the awesome details.
