I've gone and done it just bought my holiday watch . Ticked nearly all of my boxes .It's 44mil wanted to try something that size .It's solar with a good power reserves .non tapering bracelet. It's blue with a splash of other colour. Only bad bid it has a Cyclops and what looked like not so good end links .

This was meant to be a duty free thing .it was cheaper on Amazon. Let's me size the bracelet before I go instead of puttng a pin pusher in my wife's make up bag.

Also I'm a member of a watch forum if I don't like I can sell it .only two weeks mostly sunlounger use lovely and hot diving into pool might be the chilled one.This will happen probly ten times a day so not to heavy on the thermal shocks. Not to sure how many times it will visit the saun or steam room .good point the Cyclops may have fallen off.Screenshot_20180529-221358.png.13885916d890de02a60ef7af99f24059.png

My mate got his one this morning, and is delighted with it too. The second hand is bang on the markers, even the Cyclops doesn't look too bad. 

Nice.  I have one arriving in the next day or so too.  I love the look of these, even though history tells me repeatedly that modern watches are too large for me, too heavy, too...modern.

It'll be a fun few hours wearing it before I switch to something older!

@A2orry and @scottswatches would you recommend one ? Friend is looking for a quartz/solar diver, sub £300. This looks like it would fit the bill.

The bracelet is also a link short for me too.  I have had to use the divers extension to make it fit

Is that the standard bracelet size ? 

Thank you. :thumbsup:

I’ve seen those at Costco for < $300 and been tempted, a very attractive watch. I’m surprised that Scott said the bracelet was small, I’ve never had that problem. My issue is misplacing Seiko bracelet links after removal (or losing the collars for the pins).

I'm expecting to get it tomorrow I'l give you my opinion soon as. Truth be told I think it would look better with matching hands.

I think it looks fine. I also like the "red" ridge on the crown, making it a lot easier to pull out and set. Also when you get it, does the second hand hit the markers ?

Thanks. :thumbsup:

I suspect they make one or similar without the red highlights and minute hand .. I think that’s a high visibility (out of water) touch for PADI. I’d bet even the highlight on the crown aligns with the crown guards so at a glance you see that it’s screwed down. :notworthy:

It's an attractive thing, no doubt, and well built.  Just too big for me.

And the bracelet is too small because someone removed some links and lost them :aggressive:

Legend - I will give you some money for one, or donate to a charity of your choosing.  One would be plenty I think.

Mine does.  And the Lume is up to Seiko's high standards

http://www.argos.co.uk/product/9157318 - Ridiculously good for the price. Eco drive, decent bracelet with ratchet dive extension, 200m with ISO cert, great lume, easy read, positive quality feeling 60 click bezel with a lovely easy to grip rim and no play, screw crown. £130! Not as glamorous as the PADI but effective nonetheless.

Got it I've had it on for about 5 hours now .I'm over the moon with it picture's video do it no justice .bracelet was a pleasure to size pins and a split colet in the centre link. in my mind a perfect amount of pressure with a simple hand held small pusher .It's a very neet 44mm Cyclops is very small and perfectly placed as far as I can tell. Bezel is spot on and as far as glow in the dark this glows in the day.20180607_221027-1200x2133.jpg.12260c653547fb8fd0cc6818a7770333.jpg
