I've been sporting dive watches on my wrist for 25 years (jeeez, time passes by) so I should be able to make decisions for myself, but with your permission I'd like to think out loud and get your input about an upcoming acquisition. At first I was thinking of adding a Doxa as a fun Summer diver, but the Aquadive watches really appeals to me with the 60/70-ies case throwback design, the large bezel like from a Ploproof and the of the 100-series seems about right for my 7 1/4 " wrist (writing this with a DSSD on the wrist but that is as big as I ever want to go).
At first I the simple 100N appealed to me as I generally like printed dials, but reading up a bit more the regular 100SS with the applied dial just comes across as so crisp and appealing. Add the better tuned movement at a still affordable price and we have a winner. Then I found the Gear Patrol review with the black DLC version and I found that very compelling. And then there is the bronze with brown dial... I never owned either a DLC or bronze watch so either would be fun and nice change-up.
The 100SS is, of course, the classic and safe choice. The black is a bit "tacticool" or dare I say Stallone/Statham, but there is something compelling about having a black what in the rotation/line-up. The bronze is the most original and all-the-hype so the question is if one tires of it?
Help me out here with some input and inspiration! If you could only have one Aquadive which one would it be and why? A favorite photo to share?
