As you can see, the world of tough and tactical watches is overwhelming and come together with numerous brands available in the markets. In this crowded market I have just come across a fascinating new tactical watch (a brand actually) – a brand name called TWCO® Technical Watch!. Their newest line of watch – The Sea Rescue Diver Tactical with Black coated version really caught my eye with its stunning appearance.
For those who don’t know, TWCO® Technical Watch! is a Netherlands base watch company specializing in high quality professional watches and it was founded by Robbert Suurland. TWCO specialized in the manufacturing of rugged and exceptional watches that combine a great design with high quality materials. All its products are mostly intended for professionals who require accuracy and reliability in a wristwatch.
Actually, I’m familiar with the TWCO watch when they introduced the first model of their “Orange” Sea Rescue Diver back in 2012 and has been featured in Watchuseek forum and they have own official forum there. TWCO watches seem to be popular and well-received in the watch community.
The “Black Stealth” TWCO Sea Rescue Diver Tactical Watch
This year, the TWCO Sea Rescue Diver Tactical is going stealthy. I’m not a diver myself, but I really love a “tactical” diver watch with stealty design. In my opinion, The Sea Rescue Diver ‘Tactical model’ with DLC coated is an awesome divers watch. For spec, it’s the same as the first generation Sea Rescue Diver, only difference is off course the DLC coating.
Just looking at the meticulous attention to detail in the pictures is the icing on the cake right?.
Made from surgical 316L Stainless Steel, Sapphire crystal, double anti-reflective coating on the inside, high quality mechanical movement and overall finish to a high standard. Specifications also include water-resistant to 600m deep (60ATM), the hands and dial markers are with Super-LumiNova® and the watch is powered by a Japanese made Miyota 9015 automatic movement. See here for complete specification.
The Sea Rescue Diver range has the so-called “3 minute radio silence markers” as often seen in a Sea Search and Rescue environment. This explain the red and green stripes on the dial, this is graphical reminders of 3 minute radio silence that is observed every 15 minutes, in order to help with those search and rescue duties. see here for deep explanation.
Each Sea Rescue Diver Tactical series will be supplied with :
- Full solid SS bracelet, DLC coated, with diver’s extension.
- Additional silicon strap included (Black) with a DLC coated SS heavy duty TWCO buckle.
- Extra/spare pair of SS pushpins.
- Screwdrivers for adjusting the bracelet.
- Spring bar tool for putting on the silicon strap.

For those who are interested, just visit their official site.
Would I buy one for myself based on what I’ve seen? – you’ll bet I will!. Although I’m an obvious fan of tactical watches as well as a small collection of Military type watches , but after seen these watch, I’m immediately
fall in love it, as stealthed-out watches style are my favorite color palette.
Then again, if you see the price tag ($855 USD), it sometimes seems like there are few things to consider before I’m actually buy it. There are several other comparable brands out there which are much less expensive and serve precisely the same purpose. To be honest, I’m personally cannot afford it (yet) right now – BUT! in the near future .. definitely!. However, if you are sure you want great quality, durability, craftsmanship, accuracy, and outstanding design that stands out, you can’t go wrong with TWCO Sea Rescue Diver Tactical Watch. Very recommended.
