Hi all, just joined today so thought I'd introduce myself. I'm from Britain, 39yo and always accumulated watches. Until recently I didn't see myself as a watch collector; these things creep up on you.

I enjoy swimming and snorkelling, I've never scuba'd so I set my personal dive watch threshold lower than the accepted 20atm. Recently a big penny has dropped when I realised I just don't like "Dress watches"- tool watches all the way!

Here's the rundown of the ones from my collection that I see as "Divers", with the proviso that the Breil is a two pusher chrono so three holes to seal. I don't even wear it for washing up.

In descending order:

Breil Manta chronograph 10atm 8A054
Animal Zephyr 20atm WWSV06
Invicta Pro Diver 20atm 8926

Welcome! I'd say lefties are weird as well, but with my reputation it could be taken out of context.
