    Yes, I know that dive watches on leather straps offend some people. And I understand why. But there it is.

    Borderline PMW but I did snag it for under 1K during a holiday sale.

    I've got a real soft spot for Oris lately. Just out of the PMW range usually, but definitely worth a look used or discounted.

    I like that B&M Hampton too; always have. They're still around with the big discount ETA versions. I kind of regret not having one yet.

    I love that Oris 65. I really like the "Heritage" version that came out in 2014 or 2015 as well. Those have both been on my short list for a while now.

    Wearing my Aquis today:

    Took another picture because I was surprised how dark it looked in the light for a blue watch. Next picture came out even darker:

    Digging that Oris 65 with the vintage inspired lume and indices instead of numerals. Anyone else doing that look under $500-600? The parnis-type manufacturers have been cloning some of the vintage reissue Tudors decently well now but they are all 5ATM WR, which is a no go for me (and Im generally averse to clones/homages, especially sub-type)

    In my opinion, vintage Seiko is one of the best values out there. This beauty dates from '71.
