September's brand of the month.
Launched at the Swiss Watch Fair in 1963, this model was specially designed for travellers, businessmen and tourists. It allowed two different time zones to be read simultaneously and combined two movements: on the left, a self-winding movement with a calendar to keep track of the time and date at home or in the office, and on the right, a movement for reading the local time.
The two-timer model was also sold in Islamic countries under the name "Wisdom", depicting the time of prayer in Mecca.
The "Denis Diver Universel", an automatic calendar watch with a stylish steel case, was a diver's watch launched at the Basel Watch Fair in 1966. Waterproof to a pressure of 20 atmospheres (a depth of over 600 feet), the watch was fitted with a mobile ring that displayed the time in the world's major cities.
ARDATH's "Reefguard Line" watches became famous for their reliability at depths of up to 900 feet and are now highly sought after on the secondary market. It became a signature watch, known as the diver's watch, with the diver on the dial and case back ("scuba dude").

Bonhams, Sotheby's, Christies's or invaluable to name but a few of the many auction houses that have been selling the watch creations of founder Edmond Dreyfuss for decades. The Geneva-based brand was a regular exhibitor at the former Basel watch fairs and at the watch museum in La Chaux-de-Fonds. ARDATH watches were successfully introduced to the world markets and the brand has left a lasting impression worldwide to this day.
Today, ARDATH is one of the most sought-after vintage brands among collectors. This strong presence and brand reputation, combined with a unique range of models, paves the way for a perfect new start.
Some watch brands have a great past with diving watches, others were known for chronographs. Some brands made watches that looked very similar at first glance, but served completely different customer segments and therefore had very different pasts.
