First Look at the Second Coming of the Nodus Sector Deep

New dials, a fully DLC option, and a refined bracelet

“Hold my beer.”

This seems to be the phrase used by the entire Nodus team after each successful release. The Sector Deep is a unique watch for one good reason: it embodies what makes the humans behind the brand exceptional. While other watch brands exist to make a profit and play it safe, the founders of Nodus continuously push limits whenever and wherever they can.


When it comes to the industry and wanting to see certain changes, they implement the necessary changes instead of complaining.

Are existing watch trade shows a little cumbersome for brands? Create your own trade show, Intersect, with a focus on accommodating all participants.


Not happy with the colors on offer throughout the industry? Work closely with manufacturers abroad to bring to life the vivid and gorgeous ceramic bezel inserts seen in their Unity lineup.


Not content with micro-adjust holes on a bracelet and existing adjustable clasp designs from manufacturers? Employ the brilliance of the engineer named Ethan Anderson to design your in-house clasp.


So, when it came to the ridiculous arms race between luxury brands regarding grotesquely large dive watches with depth ratings that are only suitable for unmanned submersibles, Nodus said, you guessed it:

“Hold my beer.”

With that, the first Nodus Sector Deep was born. I wrote first because the newest iteration of the Deep has arrived, and though its changes are minimal, you should be excited, nonetheless. I put the Sector Deep through its paces through an entire dive season, and it proved to be the perfect companion on a dive site in a working capacity. You can read my long-term review here. However, besides the new dial colors and the fully DLC offering, you will most appreciate the advancements made to the bracelet.


The 20mm bracelet of the Nodus Sector Deep has been enhanced for comfort, tapering down to 16mm instead of 18mm. The NodeX proprietary clasp has also been further refined. This secure, slim clasp ensures the watch remains comfortable, even in demanding conditions. Here, you can read about the newest NodeX iteration in my Contrail GMT review.

The new dial colors are white, yellow, and a striking minty blue that recalls vintage dive watches. I am most excited about the white dial due to the added contrast with the darkened hands and indices. I do not usually dive with watches with white dials, but this is a promising option.


We at the Watch Clicker are always excited when brands such as Nodus, Hamilton, and others continually make minor improvements to their timepieces. These mechanical watches have some very bright minds behind them, and to see what changes they make over time is a reason to pay attention. With the added colors and more comfortable bracelet, the Sector Deep looks to continue being one of the best dive watches you can buy for under $5000. At $599, there is no reason to look elsewhere if you are looking to purchase a capable dive watch that is also very handsome.
