Created by Bill Stephens in Princeton, New Jersey, in 1975, Princeton Tec innovated how divers calculate their bottom time with the launch of the first Bottom Timer. A waterproof stopwatch that allowed scuba divers to track their time underwater. This all happened after the avid diver, Stephens, quit his day job to focus on his passion - scuba diving.
An engineer by day and entrepreneur at night, Stephens knew the diving industry had a lot to grow. After digital watches became a thing in the early 80's, Princeton Tec invested in lights. The company produced the first affordable underwater lights, Bottom Lights, and the course of the company took a bright, new direction. Nowadays, Princeton Tec offers the best lights for a variety of industries.
