    Hey all.
    I’ve been looking at watches a bit lately and would like to get myself a Christmas gift. One watch I don’t have that ive always liked is a Diver or Chronograph in the PEPSI color scheme.

    Here is a PEPSI colored watch...

    Naturally I can’t afford a ROLEX, but you get the idea.
    I’d like to have a Diver or Chronograph in this type of color scheme. I would prefer it to be around 45mm or so.

    Any ideas?

    If you’ve got a PEPSI watch let us see and enjoy it too!

    thanks and have a good day.

    Seiko used to have something similar to that but have not looked lately. I've been mostly happy with my Garmin MK1 Dive watch computer. It's also a multifunction athletics tracker.

    I have one of these. Closer to 40mm in size. I didn’t like the strap so I put a different one on. E052B95E-6CB1-443C-BFD0-520151455B9B.jpeg I don’t use it much. Let me know if you’re interested. I’d sell it for a decent price.

    Good luck finding a Rolex sport watch. This is my favorite. Deep Sea Cameron. Good to over 12,000 feet underwater. I've actually tested it to around 48" :) rolex-deep-sea-dive-866x487.jpg

    Here's one of the latest Tags. I'm also a GMT watch fan, so... I don't have this one, but I do have an Aquaracer Calibre 5 And a couple others, and it's a favorite of mine. This one would be on the list if I didn't already have a few Tags and I hadn't recently purchased a Sinn U2 EZM.

    Edit: I just caught your size requirement. This one is a 43mm like the calibre 5, but it wears a little bigger.

    That Rolex brings back memories. I was 17, in high school and my GF and I were walking through the mall and browsing the jewelry stores (Imagine that) and I saw one of those and asked about it. The salesman was anxious to show it to me. He had all kinds of finance plans available. JUST $2500.00 and it could be mine. I had to pass. I barely had money for gas and a date back then.

    If you can't swing the Rolex, have a hard look at the Invicta. Personally, I think Rolex is way overrated. The price has been artificially inflated over the years because somehow it became a status symbol. It irritates the Rolex fanboys to no end that there is a robust automatic watch on the market that is just as durable and accurate as a Rolex for under $100.

    All men with an ounce of class and panache wear a watch.

    I wear a Seiko automatic diver daily. Super reliable and takes the beating that working around cars and being generally clumsy dishes out. They have lots of models with Pepsi bezels.

    Mine is 43mm with a thicker case and for the cost I couldn’t be happier.

    You are doing yourself a disservice if you don't look hard at a Seiko.
    As a snob, I thought I was slumming by wearing a Seiko but I could not have been more wrong. As the watch I choose as my beater, it has held up remarkable well and keeps very accurate time.

    Ditto. Except I'm probably more at ease without the regular reminders that having no dependents makes for a nice Swiss watch, Italian motorcycle, and battle rifle collection.

    Get a black dial and black bezel. Goes with anything. You will tire of the Pepsi bezel. (Unless it is a Rolex)

    I have a thing for Pepsi seikos. Ever since I was little. My dad has one he bought overseas when he was flying and it always appealed to me.
    This one is a good choice if your wanting a Pepsi chrono. Two versions of the same below. I wear the PADI. And it’s proven to be very accurate and durable. I have an automatic I like as well. But the solar is nice too.
