    The Ultimate Dive Watch Used While Diving Photo Thread

    This is a thread devoted only to photos of any watch used while diving. Feel free to post your additions, but the only rules are:

    1) It must be a photo of any watch used when diving.
    2) Pre and post dive photos are also acceptable as long as the watch was used for diving that day.
    3) Comments on the awesomeness of the dive photos are also allowed.

    To begin, I've taken my Seiko Marinemaster 300 on about 15 dives now, the most recent to the Great Barrier Reef, Australia. I think it's a splendid piece of machinery if you want a mechanical watch to wear while diving.

    I'm about to submerge and am setting the bezel. It's not fully set yet as I stopped to take these photos between waves...

    The tilt of the watch gives a reflection where you can see the fins of my dive buddy above me...

    It's a sea turtle. Is it looking for food, a place to rest, or perhaps a Seiko Marinemaster?

    Between dives, the Marinemaster was taken off to remove my wetsuit and give it a bath along with the rest of the gear.

    Here the Marinemaster rests alongside a dive computer. I use the Marinemaster as an analog backup timer to a dive computer, or as the primary timing device if I'm not using a computer.

    Hanging on a buoyancy compensator (BC). I would actually hang this upside down for actual use so it could be read correctly when I'm wearing the BC and looking down on it.

    Most excellent (and awesome) pictures of real dive watches in action. Very nice.

    Anywhere from 35 to 50 minutes depending on depth. Depth was anywhere from 20m and shallower on the reef. Average probably 10-14m as that is where the best activity and light usually is.

    Thank you awesome photos, I cannot recall if it was in this forum or another where I showed my invicta mechanical dive watch and one forumer said that he does not consider it as a serious dive watch, I have used it in similar dive situation as yours. A dive watch that can be used for diving is a serious dive watch in my opinion. Great and excellent photos:)
