    Aside from guns, I'm a "watch whore", usually more so dive watches than any thing else. :)


    I'm curious to see what dive watches everyone else wears / has?


    Here's mine, a Seiko SBDC001 "Sumo" -

    No divers at the moment. My next will be a Seiko Monster gen2. I just have to decide between orange or black.

    Yes about 10 years in but definitely weaker... Probably will have Saltzmens the authorized repair place re up...

    This watch is part of me... Never take it off... Many 100 foot dives, hours and hours of snorkeling, showers, skydiving and swimming for training...

    Love it.

    Used to burn thru Seikos and Citizens in about two years...

    I have a busted aqualand duplex I got in Thailand when I was an instructor. It measured in meters, I loved it, then it went TU. I can't get the internals replaced that measure in metric. :crying::crying::crying:

    Orient Manta Ray I think is the model, 42mm case, looks very similar to yours in layout of dial and bezel. Difference is they gave the day a separate control.

    Last week I replaced the silver bracelet with a NATO Bond Spectre nylon black and grey stripe strap. Comfortable and sharp looking, made by Shark on amazon.

    True dive watches, Omega Seamaster, Rolex Submariner. I have others with screw-down crowns and rated to 200 meters but they aren't marketed as dive watches.
    I almost forgot, Citizen Eco drive Diver.
