Dievas watches are admired for their high-quality crafts and tactical-looking timepieces. With a unique indigenous design, these timeless and dynamic watches have gained a massive following because of their enduring Teutonic manufacturing. The company has also forged an astute reputation amongst collectors and enthusiasts who appreciate full form-follows-function tool watches. There’s one particular collection that simply sums it all up, and that’s the Dievas Maya lineup.
Following the design philosophy of the highly successful Dievas Maya Mk I and Mk II, comes the all-new third generation. This facelift made improvements to an already very well-built and good-looking professional dive watch. Instead of the large sizings that once grace the watch hype (yes 44mm and above was the “in” thing), the MK III Maya now comes in at 40.5mm wide, 13.8mm thick, and 49.0mm lug to lug. These dimensions are perfect for today’s market - where both men and women can enjoy this Teutonic tool watch - without compromising its look and build. All that said, the Maya Mk III is more than meets the eye.

The dial and hands design is carried over from the previous generation, featuring a premium design with a white hour index and "ghost" minute markers that only appear when they catch the light. This effect tidies up the dial giving it a sense of space resulting in a visually bigger watch as compared to the original. On top of that, the hands are also redesigned. The new minute and second hands are outlined in red for precise timekeeping.
Another craftsmanship worth highlighting is the Maya bestows a multi-layered dial design - a combination of both sandwich dial work and the embossing process. For the first time, Dievas incorporated different techniques for the dial markers. For instance, the “explorer” numerals alongside the 12 o’clock triangle marker are embossed and painted with SuperLuminova. On the opposite, the remaining hour plots are cut out of the dial, using the negative space to read off them. And on the underside, luminous are being filled on the second lower layer. Overall, a refreshing dial design that is both unique and utilitarian. A fine exemplar of classic German watchmaking.

On the exterior, the case has been re-engineered for a slimmer profile. This allows the watch to sit flatter on the wrist. Up to 36% more contact now on the wrist as compared to the original. The slimmer profile together with the curved lugs allows the watch to flow and wraps around the wrist. This results in a better and more comfortable fit. Last but not least, the crown is redesigned for a smoother crown operation and engraved with the Dievas logo for more identity.
Ticking away in the heart of the Maya Mk III is the ever-so-reliable and proven Swiss Made SW200-1, modded to Dievas specifications. Each watch is adjusted to its maximum efficiency for accuracy.

Made entirely in Germany, the all-new Maya’s multi-pieced watch case is firstly CNC in Germany using the best modern equipment and then finish and polish by an experienced hand on site. This is shown through its well-defined lines, finished edges, and beaming luster. Holding any professional Dievas watch case, one can immediately feel its quality and its cut above the rest. This entire process is fabricated entirely utilizing modern advanced technology. The most "Teutonic" unsurpassed superlative quality is portrayed by the well-defined, clean lines and perfectly finished edges throughout the case.
The watch case gets a full matte look thanks to its bead-blasted finishing (before the DLC coat), accentuating a professional rugged tool watch look. Complying with the designation of a robust utility watch, the all-new Maya comes with a sturdy, precise, and upgraded 120-click ceramic timing bezel with 30 sized-grooves for easy manipulation. The clear-cut proportions show both the strength and power of the case is an expression of. One more thing to highlight on the bezel is that one can simply remove its bezel from the screws on its side, allowing for a bezel colorway swap to customize its look. Yes, this all-new collection now comes with several bezel options, with vivid colors in both single and bi-tones, for users to enjoy and changed up without any compromises on its quality.

Such a high-caliber case is an essential ingredient in fabricating a strong foundation before undergoing advanced metallurgy treatment. Dievas implemented a sturdy hardening DLC treatment to the manufacturing process. The steel itself undergoes high-tech coating procedures that will amplify the hardness of the watchcase, approximately three to four times the hardness of 316L stainless steel. This special coating greatly improves scratch proofing as well as extra corrosion resistance. This meticulous process is executed to every part including the crown and case back.
Overbuilt is further extended to its water-resistant capability. With a thick extra clear Swiss sapphire crystal on top and a robust gasket case back. The watch is water resistant and individually tested to at least 1000m/3000feet, with an additional automatic Helium Release Valve (HEV) on the crown side - the watch allows any serious divers to bring it down with them or her during their saturation diving.

Another significant attribute of the Maya Mk III is its additional metal bracelet. The Dievas Maya now comes with a sporty black rubber strap that comes with a special tang buckle. The matching matte buckle not only comes signed with the brand's logo, and also been shaped angularly that harmonised with the watch case. Strapping it on, the Maya wears like a perfect daily beater with its aesthetics on top of its 40.5mm unisex sizing. The quick-release spring-bar design not only can be easily removed, allowing you to throw a different types of straps on it. Those who have worn a Maya before would know that this strap monster can be a beauty on a wide array of straps.
The Dievas Maya Mk III l is a timepiece with plenty to give. From her German CNC milled case, hand-finished polishing, scratch-resistant watch hardening, bezel customization ability, Dievas modified Swiss SW200-1 automatic movement, 1000m water resistance, unitarian dial design, SuperLuminova luminous, Teutonic metal bracelet, and many more. Experience the Maya like never before in its perfect 40.5mm size. A technology-packed timepiece befitting the gallant heritage her name carries.
