I don't think that I have ever owned a watch that made me say, "I would not change a thing on this watch".

I have a 7" flat wrist and have learned that 38-40mm is my sweet spot. The sizing on this model is just right for me:
  • 39mm case width
  • 10.3mm case thickness + 2.4mm dome crystal
  • 47mm case length / lug-to-lug
  • 20mm lug width tapers to 16mm at clasp
This feels like a dress diver to me. I tend to choose this over my dress watches sometimes because it is so elegant. If it sits for a while in the box, the big screw-down crown makes it a quick moment to set the time. Then I usually forget it is there because it sits so comfortably on the wrist. I forget about it until the light catches the bracelet as I rotate my wrist. The bracelet has a sort of mirror ball effect when the light hits it. This could be one of my all-time favorite bracelets.

The domed plexiglass crystal is gorgeous, and the bezel look and action is perfect. Not too stiff, but easy to grip and set when timing my meat on the grill. The movement is a 9039 (9015 with no date) and I have had many before and always find them to be quite accurate. This one seems to be doing okay, as well.

There are so many dive watches out there that are trying to be vintage, modern or an homage to something else. I believe that this watch stands on its own as a unique design and I personally believe that this is the best design in many years at the $500 and below price range. Yes, I just said that.
