Introducing the Knut Gadd Cult Diver Watch – Artcic Circle Edition
ForScubaDivers.com was invited to share this unique kickstarter exclusive offer with you. Its an amazing time-piece with a unique story behind it. It is described as an adventurous watch, not an adventure watch.
In fact each and every cult diver watch is “baptized” in one of the coldest places in the northern hemisphere. Covered in a five-foot layer of ice for most of the year, Troll Lake or Rissajaure, is the clearest and purest lake in Sweden. This is where your cult diver watch is submerged for 72 hours in water that is 0 degrees at a depth of 100 feet.
Introducing the Arctic Circle Cult Diver Watch –
“The world’s most adventurous watch.H/T Knut Gadd
Its been places most watches haven’t.
Like at the bottom of an Arctic Lake”

ARCTIC CIRCLE EDITION – ONLY ON KICKSTARTER
IN HONOR OF THE GREAT NORTH, EACH ARCTIC CIRCLE EDITION IS PUT TO THE TEST AT THE BOTTOM OF AN ARCTIC LAKE, JUST TO MAKE SURE IT CAN HANDLE THE ADVENTURE.
TROLL LAKE, SWEDEN, ARCTIC CIRCLE: 68°23’N 18°20’E
FIFTY MILES NORTH OF THE ARCTIC CIRCLE IS ONE OF THE COLDEST PLACES IN THE NORTHERN HEMISPHERE. THIS IS WHERE EACH AND EVERY CULT DIVER IS BAPTIZED.
COVERED IN A FIVE-FOOT LAYER OF ICE FOR THE BETTER PART OF THE YEAR, TROLL LAKE, OR RISSAJAURE, IS THE CLEAREST AND PUREST LAKE IN SWEDEN. ALSO ONE OF THE HARSHEST PLACES YOU CAN IMAGINE. THIS IS WHERE WE SUBMERGE YOUR CULT DIVER IN ZERO DEGREES WATER FOR 72 HOURS, AT A DEPTH OF 100 FEET.
BECAUSE WHILE SOME COMPANIES MAKE ADVENTURE WATCHES, WE’VE MADE AN ADVENTUROUS WATCH.
DESIGNED IN SWEDEN
IN AN ESTEEMED STOCKHOLM DESIGN STUDIO FROM THE 17TH CENTURY, PERCHED NEXT TO THE ROYAL CASTLE, THE KNUT GADD CULT DIVER WAS FIRST SKETCHED TO LIFE IN THE BLISTERING WINTER OF 2018, HONORING THE SIMPLICITY, MINIMALISM, AND FUNCTIONALITY OF SCANDINAVIAN DESIGN.
TESTED IN THE ELEMENTS
MAKING THE BEST DIVER WATCH DOESN’T JUST MEAN DESIGNING AND MANUFACTURING IT. IT ALSO NEEDS TO PROVE ITS CHOPS.
THROUGH FIRE AND ICE, BLOOD, SWEAT, AND TEARS, THE KNUT GADD CULT DIVER IS, AS THEY SAY, ELEMENTAL.
APART FROM OUR DRIVE TO MAKE A DAMN GOOD WATCH WITH A SENSE OF ADVENTURE, WE ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT HELPING TO PRESERVE THE ARCTIC.
THE ARCTIC IS A DELICATE ECOSYSTEM WHERE THINGS ARE CHANGING QUICKLY. THAT’S WHY WE DONATE 10% OF OUR PROFITS TO A FEW HANDPICKED NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS THAT ARE SUCCESSFUL IN THEIR WORK TO PRESERVE THE ARCTIC, PROTECTING POLAR BEARS, PERFORMING ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH AND LOBBYING FOR NATURE.
WE GO TO THE ARCTIC BECAUSE TESTING A WATCH IN THE FACTORY IS DIFFERENT FROM TOUGH TESTING IT IN THE HARSHEST ENVIRONMENT POSSIBLE. EACH WATCH HAS TO GO TO HELL AND BACK BEFORE WE DELIVER IT TO YOU.
TO ENSURE WE LEAVE NO TRACE RESIDUES BEHIND, OUR WATCHES ARE 100% CLINICALLY WASHED BEFORE BEING SUBMERGED, AND WE STRIVE FOR OUR EXPEDITION TO MEET A ZERO LEVEL CARBON FOOTPRINT.
