    Daily Desk Diver recommendation

    Hi all,

    A bit of advice please from anyone who has either watch.

    I have narrowed my search to either:
    - Tudor Black Bay Dark
    - Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Diver Blue

    Any experiences - good and/or bad with either as they are pretty much similar price. OR any others in that price ranger you would suggest?

    Many thanks.

    That Bell & Ross is hideous imo. I like Tudor Black bays but that one you mentioned is PVD plated so probably not the best choice for a desk diving since the color will wear off. I would go with a steel colored Tudor Black bay or an Omega Seamaster. You could go for a Tag Aquaracer as well.

    Be sure to check out the Breitling SOH II or the Oris Aquis/65.

    Get the Tudor simply because it will be an easier sell in the future if it ever comes to that.
    Flipping is an important part of this hobby, after all.

    Tudor is by far the better watch of your two choices, IMHO.

    Any reason it has to be a dive watch, especially if working at a desk?

    How about you consider a Tudor Black Bay 58 or any of the BB41 dive watches in red, blue and black?

    That BB Dark is only a passing fad and you’ll tire of it quickly when the coating comes off the edges and your watch looks old and dowdy.

    Just say no to bell & Ross. Of these two, the Tudor is a far superior choice. Why just these two watches?
