What is everyone's opinion on Citizen newest Series 8 diver which looks like an AP offshore? As someone who'll never be able to afford an AP, I really like the aesthetic of this watch but I'm not too familiar with Citizen's value. This one is not particularly cheap but seems much more affordable for europeans than americans, I don't know why ~1000€ vs $1500.

I like them, but would prefer simpler dials instead of the highly structured ones.

I have this one, a good value in my opinion.

Maybe they're really impressive and interesting when you see them in real life, but online, it seems like 95% of Tudor's offerings are some slight variation of the Black Baylagos- an ordinary looking dive watch with the most distinguishing feature being the snowflake hands. Which I dislike intensely, as it happens.
They're not. There is a shop near me that sells them. I tried on just about the entire range and was not impressed. They are nice, but nothing exceptional.

They always lack the ultimate refinement in design and finish. They're supposed to be the poor brothers of Rolex and also feel like that.

Not a fan of Tudor, as emerges from the previous posts, but the more I look at this, the more I like it, the pink tone is just perfect. It won't be an easy purchase though, as it will be available in small quantities.

Bulova Surveyors seem to be catching on with the YT watch dudes lately. My Accutron 2 Surveyor chrono was well bought for $120 a few years ago.

Lume is total garbage but other than that I really like these watches.
