Purchased two, a blue and a charcoal. Figured upon arrival I would decide the one keep and the one to give. Opened the charcoal first and was suitably impressed,(leaning toward that one for me). Opened the blue and was blown away. Guess which one I am keeping! Order them both with the oyster bracelet for additional wear choices. Recommend it and looks good, but cannot believe how comfortable and awesome the silicon band actually is. This is a really well thought out watch that's simplicity adds to the charm and appeal. It is a really easy piece to read the time with or without your glasses. Great detail and finishes. THE LUME IS GOING TO EXCEED YOUR EXPECTATIONS! INCREDIBLE! As a Texan, the Texas connection is an added bonus. Steven is a great guy to work with. He will under promise and over deliver. As a collector I recognize a watch built by a collector for collectors, Wrist check: "my new daily wear piece". Final thought: You will not be disappointed!
Barton Springs 656 Diver
Inspired Men’s Dive Watch - New Release!
The Barton Springs 656 isn’t just another diver watch. This men’s diver watch is designed to be your everyday watch. The brushed stainless steel finish and finely polished chamfers and accents give the Barton Springs 656 a sturdy yet elegant feel. Featuring a Swiss automatic mechanical movement, it’s powered by the movement of your arm, and has a long lasting reserve time of 38 hours. A few vintage characteristics, like the drilled lugs and no crown guards, give this diver watch an extra element of distinction.
This dive watch isn’t just about the looks though. It’s practical for everyday life, but it’s also ready to take the plunge on your next SCUBA dive. A double-sealed screw-down crown keeps this watch watertight and resistant to water damage. As its name implies, the Barton Springs 656 diver watch can go to a depth of 656 feet and has a uni-directional rotating bezel for measuring the remaining air in your tank. Swiss C3 SuperLumiNova pigment on the watch hands and oversized markers make for easy readability, day or night, even under water.
Personalize your Barton Springs 656 by choosing between two sunburst dial options, charcoal and deep blue. The sunburst dial adds depth and character to the watch with stunning light reflections. Both dials have an optional date window at the 3:00 position. In addition to the included tri-colored nylon NATO-styled strap, an exclusive Barton Watch Bands silicone strap — available in Black, Navy Blue, or Black and Orange- is also included. Additional options of either Oyster or Mesh 316L stainless steel bracelet may be selected ($39.95).
Not only is this a functional diving watch, it’s truly practical for everyday life. The domed sapphire crystal protects it from scratches and nicks. Anti-reflective coating eliminates glare from surrounding lights. The rotating bezel can be used daily as a cooking timer, or to track a game/movie. Multifaceted, this watch is made to endure all of the experiences life has to offer, and always keep you on time.

I have the black dial, no date. I'm wearing it with the black and orange strap. Killer looks and very comfortable feel. I am very pleased with the watch. Great to have a watch made in Texas in my collection.
I love my Barton Springs no-date. I grew up in N Austin and still live nearby. I'm glad to be able to support a great, local company. Watch is a great size and has a beautiful, clean dial. The Sellita movement is smooth and it's been keeping good time for the week or so I've had it! I have a couple of dozen good US made or assembled watches and I see this one becoming one of my favorites. Oh also, the Barton silicone strap is awesome!!
Honestly, this was the first dive watch I’ve owned, and I really don’t care to own another! (Unless it’s another DuFrane!) Love everything about the watch and it pairs great with different Nato straps. Probably going to be back to buy it in blue soon! My 12 year old is now begging for one for his birthday. Also, called the number on the site and got Steve, the owner, directly. Great help and nice guy.
This watch IS the Dog's bollocks ..... https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php term=Dog%27s%20Bollocks
I've had the blue face with date since June and it's become my go-to watch. The case has great polishing contrast and the dial just pops - the Lume at the hands and each hour are stronger than that of my Swiss and Japanese divers. The NATO strap is very high quality and the automatic movement doesn't disappoint. All the details tell me this piece will age quite nicely.
I could not like this watch more. I have a collection of about 15 high quality watches and wear them all. I have a pool and already owned a high quality Swiss diver. This summer my other diver has been left in the box quite a bit. This watch with the blue face may be my new favorite.
Where do I start. Purchased this watch to add a diver to my collection. I purchased the barton springs 656 with black date dial. The watch is utterly beautiful, from the dial design to the drilled lugs, the detail and quality on this piece means that instead of putting this watch into rotation in my collection, I haven't been able to take it off since it arrived. The Swiss movement inside has proven so far too be incredibly accurate as well, in fact more so than some of my much more expensive pieces. The watch was supplied with two straps! A very attractive nato strap and a slim comfortable silicone strap. I can't decide which one I prefer yet but I've had the silicone on more often so far. On a final note, the customer service I've received has been like nothing I've experienced from any other company, Steven (The Ceo) Was in constant contact about my order and accommodated my change of order with enthusiasm. I could not recommend this watch and also this fantastic company any higher. Many many thanks. Marcus.
This is a big beautiful piece of functional art. I absolutely love it. Wear it with joy and confidence.
I did not immediately fall in love with Dufrane Watches initial Bergstrom pilot watch. However, after seeing their 2nd release with the Barton Springs 656 Diver in person, I knew I had to give it a try. The stunning blue dial drew me in and the nice proportions, high legibility and strong lume put it over the top. A solid Sellitta swiss movement at a very reasonable price. A nice bonus was the extra silicon strap from Barton watch straps..... even has quick release spring bars to make changing very easy.
