Any Good Diver watch for Recommendation?

Recommended Posts

Recently i'm checking to purchase a new diving watch.

I prefer to have a rubber band, and i saw one of this. but not yet decided yet. Any good recommendation?

Appreciated.

Blimey, what a question. How much do you want to spend, is it actually for diving, and are there any specifics such as sapphire window, or quartz, etc etc. I wouldn't let the rubber strap sway you, as this can be purchased separately if necessary. I think the Invicta pro diver range with the NH35A movement are brilliant, as are all the Seiko divers.If you want something a bit quirky have a look at the Vostok range. Spend a bit more and you could be looking at Christopher Ward, and they are a terrific watch. You can of course spend a fortune on a Rolex submariner, but I wouldn't bother. Really, the world is your oyster. Here are mine

Most Seiko divers are up to the job, but if on a tight budget, as already mentioned, search out Apeks, Divex, Aqualung, Tauchmeister, et al. All look similar and use basically the same quartz (or auto) movement, and are great bang for buck. You should find one for around the £100-120 pound mark. Some are even rated at 1000m and with a HE valve.

San Martin by the looks of it.

There may well be nothing wrong with the San Martin watches. I see they appear to come with Seiko, Seagull and "Swiss" movements. A 62MAS homage with a  NH 35 movement sells for around $220, if you like that sort of thing.

Scurfa are worth a look.

That’s a pretty good shout to be fair. They are great watches and have a rubber strap.
