In Case You Missed It - Timefactors

Not sure why, but we almost never talk about the various Timefactors watches that Eddie Platts puts out. He seems to have gone in heavy on the idea that watch sizes have grown too large and has released several new models that are downsized versions of past popular watches. The demand for these has ...

Re: Jason Heaton’s Got a New Blog

Great read. The Keep It Simple, Stupid rule is a must for dive watches! I do think that ruggedness needs to be considered with divers too. How many times have you banged a watch on the ladder climbing back after a dive in choppy conditions, or accidentally hit something underwater in a current? Than...

“Why So Serious?”

A1C55AAF-24F8-4D3A-8913-F7CB747E940F.jpeg I take my watches seriously, as most of us do. But sometimes it’s worthwhile to just lighten things up a bit. With that in mind, I present my Rogue Warrior dive chrono: 1A9EA168-3D0E-4E49-94F6-714FB203338E.jpeg 32690CD3-F50D-4036-80AD-4982E95C4F10.jpeg It’s...

It is the first generation version, made when Zodiac was still an independent watchmaker. It features a modified ETA 2824-2 automatic movement that is a solid workhorse. The case is fi...

Tutima Commando?

Anyone know of a variant of the Tutima DI 300 called a Commando? (Not to be confused with the chronograph Commando II). tut1.jpg Its got the same titanium case as a regular DI300, but some distinct differences too: Destro (lefty) crown placement. Ordinal numbers on the dial. 60 minute numbers on the...

Re: Vintage Guys - Need An Opinion

You’ve convinced me that this one is a pass. If the bezel is wrong - but being presented as all original - then who knows what else is Frankenstein.

Kind of a shame - there are very few 36000 bph divers out there

Vintage Guys - Need An Opinion

This is a vintage Zodiac SSW 750M model. Its in rough shape, but it's a cool old timer dive model.

However, I've never seen a two layer bezel before - is this correct for this watch?

OK, I know that its just ebay, and sellers there are not to be taken seriously. But, this watch is described as "outstanding +" condition. Got a chuckle out of it, but I'd hate to see one of his beaters....

Re: Is the SKX007 still the best bang for buck Seiko diver?

The SKX used to be the title holder, but there's a new head wearing the crown.

About the same size, vastly superior 4R35 auto movement, still 200M WR, and date only (who needs day?). Price is close enough to make it worthy.
