Nice watch, but it didn't do enough for me.

Cozumel dive videos

Since we have YouTube capabilities here, I thought I'd put up the video compilations from my Cozumel trip of a couple weeks ago. The first one is a pretty bad video of the C-53 wreck dive. This is a 150ft. Navy minesweeper that was sunk off of the island a few years ago. Sits at about 70 feet. It's ...

Re: REVIEW: DIEVAS VORTEX

Very clean design. I think the pilot dial and hands work. Makes it less of a "diver" and more of a "do-anything" watch.

Re: Got a Ploprof

Thanks a lot, all.... I actually feel a little sheepish. After the champagne that the dealer rep was pouring for us wore off, my wife and I looked at each other and were like, "oh, shit, what have we done?" But ya know, we both love watches and it just means no one in the family gets Christmas gifts...

Got a Ploprof

Crazy day... my wife and I walked into an Omega AD here in town and walked out with two watches. My wife got the new Planet Ocean chrono and I got this: http://i494.photobucket.com/albums/rr308/watchnerd/PP_1.jpg I am still a little numb.

Re: What to do with a beater?

Something that includes incendiary devices. Or maybe something simpler like the 'penny is soda' thing. Let it sit for a few months in some Coke :thumbsup: Ah, a torture test.... not a bad idea. Or maybe it's a watch I just keep in my toolbox or travel shaving kit as a backup. It bugs me to see it s...

What to do with a beater?

So I've got this watch that I literally NEVER wear but it deserves to be by someone. This isn't a for sale post, just a rumination. I got this watch in my pre-WIS days at the Louis Pion store on the Champs d'Elysee in Paris while there on business. I liked the look of it. Anyway, it got worn for a y...

Re: Oris Regulateur "Der Meistertaucher" 2008 (Pics)

NICE photos! :love:

I'd love to wear a regulator, just to see the looks on people's faces when they ask you the time and you show them your watch. :mrgreen: Makes sense for diving though. No pesky hour hand to confuse your nitrogen-soaked brain when you're checking your bottom time.

Another photo from their Website. I think it's an earlier conception of the watch.

44mm diameter. You could pull it off. We've seen your massive inked guns. :lol:

New Magrette Moana Pacific Diver

I've always liked Magrette's designs and company vibe. They've got a new diver coming out next year. Looks great, I think. And 500m WR.

$39 for a winder? Is this any good?

I've never considered a winder since I only have two automatics. But for $39, this seems hard to pass up. Is this brand any good? Swiss Watch International? Regular price is over $300... Anything to watch out for?

Suunto Elementum Aqua goes diving

Took the Aqua on a few dives in Cozumel last week. Performed admirably. The dive functions are intuitive and clear. Here's one U/W shot at 46 feet. http://i494.photobucket.com/albums/rr308/watchnerd/Suunto_diving.jpg?t=1259770863 And a glamor shot back home: http://i494.photobucket.com/albums/rr308/...
