Thank you for the advice, anon. That's the exact one I wanted, that blue is incredible I think. Was looking at a Sub but decided on a Cousteau.

>> No.12018902

No probs. Just be aware that although Subs are more expensive and more popular, the only real thing it might hold over the Cousteau is it's re-sellability.

You can sell a Rolex any day of the week, especially a Submariner. But IWC will be harder to move. Shouldn't bother you if it's a graduation gift and you intend on keeping it forever I wouldn't worry about it. Better bang for buck.

You could try some vintage Tissot, Raketa or even Zenith if you search Ebay some. Worth a squiz.

Vintage? As good as any other. If you are going for more of a field watch than I wouldn't buy vintage; gaskets and water resistance (If it even had any to begin with) is likely compromised.

New Tissot like the popular Visodate is also excellent. I prefer Seiko, I think below 3k they can't be beaten for quality.

The SARB013 is probably closer to that original image but harder to find. Heres a pic

Detail is unsurpassed in minimalist watches for a price ~200 USD. My second hand movement seems to be loose as it can be about 1/4th of a tick off sometimes, however it doesn't affect the accuracy or consistency at all. One of the comfiest bands I've ever worn by far.

Can /fa/ suggest another good brand to look at for diving watches?

I've got 3 watches now and I'm looking for another one and I'd like to branch out from Deep Blue.

The reason I'm such a fan boy is because of the quality/money. The white one I got for $220 new and shipped and it's got ceramic bezel, sapphire crystal and dive depth of 500 meters. The orange was about $170 new and shipped with a sapphire crystal and 1000 meter dive depth.

I'm nosing around in the $400-$500 range this time around.

I need it to be a dive watch (I dive 4-5, up to 10 times a year as the occasional supplementary income) and I really am not interested in anything without a sapphire crystal. I'm not picky on movement, but as a watch I would wear on the reg I would prefer an auto or quartz (leaning towards quartz, the screw down crown gets tedious after a while). I'd also rather a watch that can go WAY deeper than I would ever want to go rather than something that I could edge up on it's limits (I don't fuck with anything past 170 down, it's lost at that point). A metal dive band would be a plus.

>> No.12028120

Also forgot those two have Super luminova. That's also something I would really prefer in my next watch.

This was the one I was looking at, but again, I'm kind of looking to branch out to another brand.

Look into Junkers watches. Both the JU 52 and Horizon are inspired by old German airplane dials.

Just find your lug measurements and get a metal bracelet that will fit.

the hadley roma 18mm bead blasted bracelet is an almost perfect match. the curved end links even fit.

it sucks. well, at least the dial and all that looks interesting but it's just too much convoluted bullshit for an everyday beater.

>> No.12031017


you are being way too fucking childish and picky for someone who doesn't even have $2,500 to spend on a watch.

the dial's the same style. whether that's good enough for you or not, it's definitely time for you to get silent about it.

I was looking around for several kinds of black watches. THen i found this new brand offering really cool design and a quality as high as watches with a 10 X cost. I have not found any other watch shop where I can get a high-quality watch under $200 offering. Do you guys know any? I found all on this site with black watch for men https://www.larsenwatches.com/mens-watches/mens-black.html with life warranty :-) And I Just ordered this clean and exclusive black and gold watch from here https://www.larsenwatches.com/lw43-mens-watch-all-black-leather-strap.html
