My understanding is that the older ones were fully canvassed, but the newer ones are half-canvassed. I haven't handled one of the newer ones though--that's just hearsay from the forum. I do have one that I think is from a season or two ago that is fully-canvassed, and seems to be decent quality overall.

Seriously, listen to us and leave your expensive watches at home. Unless you just have unlimited money to drop that is. But then again, why stop at the Sub/Speedy Pro and go with a JLC? I think you guys are nuts. Why a buy a diving watch if you are never going to get it wet? ...

I'm guessing if you're asking this kind of question it's probably good enough for what you do .... most scuba diving is done in the 100 to 130 feet range. If you're going deeper than 167 feet I suggest the Omega Seamaster (e.g., Planet Ocean good up to depths of 2,000 feet or Ploprof up to 4,000 feet) or the Submariner which is good to depths of 1,000...
Quote: Originally Posted by urymoto also saw the speedy pro is only good for 50meters. is that enough for occasional diving? No. That's watch-speak for "it can get rained on without ruining it." If you are actually going to get in the water, you want something rated for at least 100m.
Quote: Originally Posted by urymoto i am shocked that so many of you wont take your dive watches diving!!loool wtf? A g-shock for diving or a timex? no im looking for something that can survive anything i put it trough...including -40C, diving at 30 meters for 30-40 minutes, sleeping, spearfishing, sneaking around "assassins creed" style... I you want to get a watch for diving, get a diving watch--not a Speedmaster. As mentioned...

Got some Paul Stuart shoes from forex. Great seller, fast shipping, etc.
