I have owned my Rolex Sea Dweller for about 20 years, I've always owned and worn dive watches but I've also been diving since 1974, first as a sport diver and then in the commercial diving industry which required that I do a lot of chamber diving hence the Sea Dweller with the helium value. Never regret buying that watch, can wear it anywhere and for any occasion......

I have a Rolex Sea Dweller 166600 that I bought when my son was born, so 26 years ago....pretty much my daily, my wife has an Omega Planet Ocean with orange bezel, I'd actually like to add a Seiko Tuna Can vintage watch to the collection. These were very popular in the Commercial Diving industry back in the day.

I love them , they get better and better when they release new divers .We can see a convoluted evolution of the series from the very 1st model to the present one such a updated hand set , better luminous bezel and more refined case flanks
Christopher Ward Trident C60 GMT 1000 Blue is my favorite model for the brand .

Yeah i am very tempted by the Trident Elite. I think they just look so good! Reasonable price and made in the UK too (well at least a British brand)

A couple of "Bird Watches" Cheap...Cheap...Cheap. I don't like to bring anything too valuable on vacation. Beside, I never went below sixty feet.

I had a Longines Legend Diver no-date and should never have sold it.

I just bought a cheapie Spinnaker that is a Fifty Fathoms homage and I quite like it.

I've owned lots of Panerai watches, though none of the Submersible line, do those count as "dive" watches? The originals certainly were.

These Loreti watches are reasonably priced, heavy duty and not bad looking. This was my first diver. The company has SHITTY customer service though so if you look at them...keep that in mind.

I never heard of the brand but they look nice. I looked at their site and they seem to make affordable priced watches. I like the green Okeanos. A perfect watch to take on vacation and not worry about it getting lost or stolen.

That green one is what got me to look at them! But when I went to buy they only had the blue available. Since I have more clothes with blue in them than green it didn't bother me too much. They do have some really nice designs and very reasonable
