    International Watchman Marine Diver

    I've had this watch for about a month and I'm pretty happy with it. Any other IWI owners out there?

    For the price it's a nice watch. The only negative I find with mine is the crown guard. A little bit hard to open. Uses the asian manufactured ETA movement which is no big deal considering the price. Probably made by the same factory that produces some decent PAM reps. JMHO

    Just saw the real Panerai today ,that thing is nice.
    It was Arktos, very thick and heavy.
    Your watch is very nice too, how much was it if you don't mind me asking?

    It was just under $300 direct from the manufacturer. I think it's a great deal. Unfortunately, it has me wanting the real thing now.

    I wasn't aware ETA manucatured in Asia. My watch was a little fast out of the box. I had it regulated by a watchmaker and it's running about -1second per day since.

    As for the crown guard - mine's very easy to open. In fact I wish it had a tiny big more resitance when opening, but I'm happy with it.

    I think replacement crown guards are available from the manufacturer if you wanted to switch it out.
