I'm getting married in January and my future in-laws want to buy me a watch. i dont want them to have to spend a ton of money on it so i was looking at the 500-750ish price range. this will be my first watch aside from fashion watches (guess, armani, etc)
originally i wanted to get a vestal or nixon because i am a surfer from california, but after researching a bit i realized they are just fashion watches. i now want something a little more...."reputable" and something with higher quality and class.
ive been scouring the forums and looking for a "best bang for the buck" and just been reading up on different watches. i want to get a seiko ananta but they are a bit out of my price range. maybe someday.
i am pretty active outdoors and in the water so i'd like a durable waterproof watch and the divers seem to be a great fit.
i've narrowed it down to 2 watches:
Deep Blue Daynight T100-Diver with the tritium flat tubes
Christopher Ward C60 Trident
From the visual aspect, i like the Chris Ward but I like the tritium flat tubes of the Deep Blue.
Any thoughts or input would be appreciated!
