If you're really going to dive, get the Eco-Zilla. Similarly if you'll spend a lot of time in the water. It is really too big to wear around the office. The real divers here will tell you how tough it is.

The Zodiac is a handsome mechanical (auto) watch that you can comfortably use on land or in the water. It is a new model, so not sure of the longterm reliability (though Zodiac has a long and good corporate history).

You might consider the Tissot T-Star 1000, NauticFish, Bernhardt Instruments Corsair, Archimede diver, Seiko Samurai, kinetic Seiko Boss, Pulsar Tech Gear Solar diver, or any of a stack of quartz divers.

Thanks for that list, Steven..but none of those really set my heart a flutter...i want either an eco Drive type of watch, or an automatic movement watch....just found another one....anyone have any feedback on this watch, or this company?? How does this brand compare to the Zodiac automatic watches?

The Zodiac is nice, personally I prefer the O&W you put up, it's an excellent brand as well.
I have a ss 'zilla and like Steven said, I think unless you're diving you look like you're wearing a doorknob.

Ti 'Zilla :-!
It's actually comfortable for the size, and you sure as heck will get comments! :-d

I do like the Zodiacs though, I wish they would get the Oceanaire at the local Fossil outlet!

Cheers,
Griff

For $425 I would pick up a Marathon SAR-D.......do a google search for Marathon SAR-D and it should be the first or second link.

They are both great, I have the yellow Zodiac and it is real easy to wear as a everyday watch but it is a big watch 45mm in dia. the ecozilla is the best if you want to dive, I have the Ti zilla also and it is a large watch and feels it when worn. Go the Zodiac, JMHO.

Personally I would have the Zilla in a heartbeat as that's trouble free wrist watch pretty much:-! The price for that Zilla is very high though $300+ ish is fair (NEW).
As to the size aspect, I figure from your two choices your not bothered about the bigger watches, the Ti Zilla is a comfortable watch to wear and as light as a feather too.

O&W are good watches but SMALL compared to the Zodi and Zilla.

I never thought I would say this, but for me the Zilla is to big, it feels huge, so I gave it to my son, who knows maybe I am getting old and cranky,:think: but it is still in the family so I can change my mind.:-d
One heck of a watch though!

Have not owned a zilla, but I do have the Oceanaire and it is a very comfortable watch on the wrist, despite the size and heft...
