Circula Introduces a GMT into their AquaSport Diver Collection

The formula for Circula’s AquaSport dive watch is fairly simple. It’s a proper 40mm diver that keeps dial furniture to a minimum and blends in a mix of color to keep their watches looking lively, and less mundane like your traditional black dial dive watch. It’s just enough to keep the AquaSport fun and refreshing, without straying too far away from Circula’s main mission – to produce high-quality, German made (Pforzheim to be exact) watches that harken back to past designs. Circula also takes pride in listening to their customers and the entire watch community as a whole, taking suggestions and then applying them accordingly to future projects. Whether there was an increasing demand for a GMT model from the community, or it was Circula’s intention to turn their AquaSport diver into an exceptional travel companion, we’ve got a brand new AquaSport GMT in two different flavors.

The Circula AquaSport comes in two different dial variations: Anthracite and Blue. The AquaSport GMT Blue stays in line with what we’ve seen within the AquaSport collection. The dial has a cyan tone amplified by a sunburst effect paired with orange accented hour markers, seconds hand, and trim around the crown. A sky blue AM bezel display offsets the color matched PM display. The AquaSport GMT Anthracite keeps things a bit more reserved. The bezel remains a uniform matte gray color. Like the sunburst effect on the anthracite gray dial, the faded yellow and light blue accents on the dial and bezel are subtly executed.


An inner 24-hour ring separates the center and outer portion of the dial. Working in tandem with this mini 24-hour display is a stout GMT hand with a broad arrow. Another 24-hour display is provided on the sapphire bezel which rotates bidirectionally via a ball-bearing system and completes its revolution around the dial in 48 clicks. Circula maximizes legibility by using two different types of lume – the dial markers get the Super-Luminova CX X1 green glow while the bezel numerals are illuminated in the BGW9 blue.

The Circula AquaSport GMT is powered by the Sellita SW 330-2. With the Swiss-made movement, you can expect a power reserve up to 56 hours, an upgrade from the SW 330-1’s 42 hour reserve, date function located at six o’clock and an independently adjustable GMT hand. Encasing the movement is a similar stainless steel cushion-style case that’s seen within the AquaSport range capable of withstanding external water pressure at 200 meters of depth.

Circula offers up the AquaSport GMT either on a tropic strap which will run you 1,091 € or on a stainless steel beads of rice bracelet which tacks on a bit more to your final cost at 1,176 €. The AquaSport GMT is currently available directly through Circula’s online platform. Circula
