    I thought I loved divers until...

    ... I got this watch. I have a decent collection of divers. Breitling SO Steelfish, SO pro, seiko 007,009,monsters,etc. Love them all. Picked up this beauty and now I can't wear anything else. Has this ever happened to you before? I'm sure the honeymoon period will end but for now I'm not taking this thing off.

    Don't mind the bracelet. My daughter is in summer camp now and anyone with a kid in camp knows the drill.

    I had a Tag Aquaracer until I got an Oris BC4. I realized the Tag was never going to be on my wrist again and sold it.
    Doesn't mean I won't get a diver again, just not anytime soon.
    There's always room on top.

    Divers are great but I can only handle wearing so many watches with a rotating bezel based on the same theme. Variety is the spice!

    Personally I never understood the love of divers. Sure I get the appeal and had one before myself, but I never understood having 10-20 of the same looking watch, even if the innards were all different. Variety is important in life.

    Am I seeing the beginning of a pilot collection?

    I don't understand it either, but I know I have it. And even though there are a lot of them that are derivatives of the same design, there are plenty of others that bring something original to the table.

    The funnier part is that pilot watches all look pretty much the same, even more so than divers.
