Zero right now. I'll probably pick up a Glashutte Original diver once they start appearing at good used prices.

Until then, I don't really see the appeal. Rolex is incredibly overpriced for what you get. $12k for a used sub gets you an amazing piece of high horology from a brand like Breguet, Glashutte Original, etc...

Ive had 8 in my collection at one point. I’m clearing them out right now. I’ve gotten rid of 3 in the past 4 months, trying to get down to 3. I figure a PO, Aquaracer, and Turtle covers all my diver needs. The Samuari is the next to go. I’m starting to find divers to be a little big and clunky, and find myself drawn to more sport GADA type watches.

I could see myself at some point keeping just the PO.

How many dive watches do most enthusiasts have in their collection on average? And by how many brands?
A few actually, considering I live no where near water. LOL Rolex deep sea, Rolex Sub no date, Fifty Fantoms, Bremont and I guess there are a couple more that I can not remember.
I forgot about the half dozen Omega's and a Sinn

No, you can't have too many. I have only one that is not a dive watch and that's the one I am considering selling. Feel free to count them up via my signature.

High end dive watches? If a WG Rolex is considered high end, i think i only have one. Otherwise i have none.
One persons' Utilitarian is another persons's high end - I think your SLA's are high end divers, Pongster

Perhaps the SBGH255 qualifies as a high-end diver(?), I'm limiting it to just one in the collection, so if I get something like a YG Sub this will have to go.

It really depends on the person and how they like to dress at different occasions. I personally own two divers but have a total of 5 watches. I wouldn't wear a diver with a suit so resort to a dress watch. But if you were divers at the office, night out or a formal event, own as many as you like :p

Most of my watches are dive watches, a few are ‘dive-style’ in the sense that one is a micro brand that’s not spending to get them ISO compliant and another lacks a luminous second hand but is 300m water resistant, and its automatic cousin is ISO compliant. Between swimming, paddling, sailing and hitting the surf, plus stream and river crossings while hiking, I’m in the water a lot and appreciate that whatever watch I’m wearing won’t get destroyed. No right answer, it’s a matter of personal preference.

If i could find a speedmaster for a good price, i wouldn’t turn it down.....

I have about 20 divers - but most are low-mid level Citizen Promasters, Seiko Prospex, the odd Rlx Sub, SLA025, Longines 300m heritage chrono etc

These three knights of the Sea are not really High End - but they are top-drawer professional dive tools

Incredible lineup! Gosh they're so beautiful. My baby quartz thingy says hi! Wishing my Tuna had the iconic cathedral handset is what pushed me to get the GS diver. I'm currently on a search for a new strap for it. Love the look of Tunas on Isofrane, although the stock straps (I've been told silicone) are more comfortable for my wrist.
