The current candidates are the Stowa diver style, Nauticfish 500M (I hate the 1000M), Ocean7, any thing but a Seiko or Citizen.

I am going to get a nice big diver that I can keep forever.

What do you think I should get? I want quality and good non-Rolex looks.

Thoughts?

New2this,

Hello. How much less than 1000 were you thinking? Because if you are able to stretch a few hundred over a thousand you might come across a pre-owned Tag Heuer Aquagraph for around 1300 as well. Very solid watch with a chronograph that operates under water. I am not sure how much SARs are but I think they might be around 600 or so. A very big dive watch also built like a tank. I also think the lume on the SARs are tritium tubes that shine well at night.

Personally I would prefer a nauticfish to a Stowa. Just personal preference as far as aesthetics. Check out the "Black One" and "Black Two". Both substantial watches with PVD cases/ I think they might be hovering around 1200usd though.

The new Stowa Seatime or a used Stowa Prodiver would do just fine. Any Enzo would be a fine choice.

Yessir!!! Slip took the words right out of my mouth!! Also check out an Auto-Zilla. Yes it is a Citizen, but it is "THE" citizen diver to get!! I know it is not what your looking for, but it is worth giving it a shout IMO! It's a big honkin watch!! I would take an Auto-Zilla over an Ocean 7 anyday of the week:)

Yes, that is why I put my little disclaimer. And I highlighted it in Zilla green for ya:-d Relentless?!? Maybe;-)

Cut the BS and just get this. It has a blue anodized dial that is the best in the business, 1000m WR and under $800 new.

another vote for the stowa prodiver - best bang for the buck in that price range (look on the sales forum for a LNIB)

Well if you are looking for big and it can't be a Seiko or Citizen then besides the Enzo's this is what comes to my mind. If you really want to make a statement go for the yellow, but the black is really sweet too. Can be had around $900 lnib on the boards when they pop up...

I have to agree on the Orient. I know it is new $1150, however they rearly come up for sale second hand as most people realize what a great watch it is once they have it on the wrist. I have the yellow one, and am seriously thinking about adding the black one as I can't find a better deal in terms of quality, lume, and wrist presence.



Other than this, you can't go wrong with the Ocean7 watches in the < $1K range.

I LOVE the Stowa Seatime limited edition, but I do not care for the all black version. Why is the Limited Edition cheaper than the Standard version? $1125.00 versus $1479.00 The Prodiver isnt bad, but I think its a bit too plain also.

I also LOVE the Oris small second hand model. Price?

Whatever I get has to have a steel bracelet. (at the least)

I am not buying a $1000 Seiko or Citizen, I want something more "small-box".

Any others? I will not buy a Tag Heuer. Ever. The name makes my skin crawl (high school memories).
