Thanks. I really want it to become my daily wear watch, but I'm hesitant I'll ruin it.

Negative ghostrider.

I think Rolex doesn't put AR coating on their crystal. I think it doesn't glare as much due to the thickness of the crystal and smaller diameter that cuts into the glare on the SD.

Correct--I believe that Rolex's crystal on the Sea Dweller is ~3mm.

 

Compare the glare of the Rolex with this Bremont Supermarine, which has some crazy 9 AR coats:

From Toppers its actually ~$4300, which does make it a good deal. The accoutrements of the Bremont are out of this world--the case, design, finishing, etc. The only thing really holding it back is the fact that it uses a modified ETA movement (I am not sure just how modified it is), whereas at this price point one starts to hope for in-house movements. Compare this to the Seiko Marinemaster 300m, for example, which clocks in at about $2400 or so:

The MM 300 is fully in house, and has wonderful finishing and design elements. It is often compared to the Submariner, and many comparative reviews even give it the edge [Ref: http://forums.watchuseek.com/f304/comparative-review-seiko-sbdx001-marinemaster-vs-rolex-16610lv-296162.html].

 

Currently I am in between a MM 300 and a Bremont perhaps. Although I adore the Bremont styling, and really think it is the most aesthetically pleasing dive watch to my eye, I may have to hold off on the purchase for now.

i dont think i'd mind non-in-house...
if you look at it... the IWC portuguese chrono is not in house but its more accurate than the portuguese auto which has the IWC in house movement lol...
ETA work horse units are legit, just people want that much exclusivity.
i dont think even ferraris use all ferrari made parts... the new double clutch trans is outsourced
