In fact, if you were a serious diver you would not wear a dive watch while actually diving. While I appreciate the history and aesthetic of dive watches, I never wear one diving. Wrist mounted computers / digital depth and bottom timers are what are worn nowadays.

If only I have a Biformeter that goes with it, voila ready for modern day diving!

An interesting, and potentially useful, device but I won't be discarding my Suunto and UWATEC computers any time soon!

Just a man with either a lot of bad luck or good luck, depending on how you look at it. After escaping Vietnam, he got stuck in Cambodia. After escaping that, he ended up in Iran and worked in Chinese restaurants for a while. Then the Iranian Revolution hit and he had to run to a different country. He settled on some place that was sure not to have civil strife - Canada.

I never liked "busy" watches myself, but I must say that thats a damn good looking watch.

I do - I like the idea of redudancy (and wearing a nice watch over the suit).

The problem with diving is that it's an environment very rich in stainless steel & sharp corners. I scratched a sapphire crystal on a dive boat.

Fair enough but what about the fact a dive watch only shows elapsed time, not depth? I wear a computer on my wrist and carry a back up in my dry suit pocket.

Anyhow, will stop posting off topic. Post your dive watches!

A classic... I still have a soft spot for this watch.

I picked this up from the post office on my way to work this morning. Oh, Rolex is such a slippery slope
