Just received my order from Deep Blue. 2 watches and a bracelet : MASTER 1000 AUTOMATIC BLK/BLU , SEA QUEST DIVER 1000M 42MM plus a bracelet for the Master 1000. Order was placed Sat 12/26 arrived today 12/30. (Excellent job on the shipping especially during the holidays) Pretty impressive. Also, when I placed my order I left comments about the possibility of installing the bracelet on the master 1000. I wasn't sure if that would happen as this is my first experience w/ Deep Blue and I wasn't sure if they would do this kind of thing. There has been much discussion here at WUS about aftermarket straps and bracelets w/ Deep Blue and I didn't want the hassle. And yes indeed the master 1000 came with the bracelet installed. And the case was sealed. Awesome!
First impression is wow. Both watches shipped in 1 well packaged box. Both watches came with lightweight travel type cases ( see pics ) The Blue/ Black Masters 1000 automatic is stunning. My first thought was "This looks like a 1,000-1,200 dollar watch".
The Sea Quest 1000M is really simple quartz watch and the luminous is like crazy radioactive good also the bezel is noticeably nice and tight. Everything lines up excellent. Same goes for the Masters 1000. Weird bezel alignment makes me insane and both these alignments are tip top. With the Sea Quest, I wasn't sure about the rubber strap when I ordered it, and this piece has curved pins so I was a bit troubled but upon arrival the rubber strap actually works really well and is actually really cool. I wore the Sea Quest all day while working and really liked it.
I wanted to post right away as I was quite impressed by the initial unboxing. This type of quality and service given the price point of these watches is truly remarkable. One will clearly be hard pressed to find a better product for the money (SEE PICS) Attachment 6489745Attachment 6489761Attachment 6489769Attachment 6489777Attachment 6489785
