Helson Watches will be releasing their new Skindiver watch this month. A bit about Helson Watches. The company is the brainchild of a couple of enthusiastic divers and sports fanatics from Europe and Asia. The aim of the company is to create reasonably priced and reliable diver watches. The company has its production facilities in Hong Kong and they use quality products sourced from Europe and Asia.
