[quote=robinsongreen68;4103871]From the Omega website: "Italian mountaineer Reinhold Messner, the first to have climbed all fourteen “eight-thousanders” (peaks over 8,000 metres above sea level) and the first to have climbed Everest solo without supplemental oxygen, wore a Speedmaster on his 1989 expedition to the Geographic South Pole, crossing Antarctica on skis." . im a macchiato man.

Would you compare a Ferrari to a Rally ready car, they are intended for different purposes. Finally, if you're gonna use a submariner...

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...
Ok guys, i know this has been discussed and i did read the threads. but i need help I like the look of the Speedmaster from Omega and Submariner. BUT, for the omega it says i cant scuba with it (im not talking 100 meters...more like 10, 20,30) and it says dont expose to temps below 0C!!! are you kidding! in Canada it gets -30... Basically i need something sturdy: temperature proof, waterproof, rugged. Is the omega not suited?
