Just stumbled across this forum, and thought it was amazing, so I decided to join and ask for some suggestions on buying a new watch in the 300 USD range.
Here is kind thing that I am looking for- First, it would be for every day wear. Second, since I am a regular diver (I work underwater during the summers) and I fly fish and sail a lot, so I would like something very waterproof and rugged. I have killed two Invictas - an 8926c and a 0467, both with stem issues. The 8926 screw down crown leaked, and the stem seal on the 0467 let go about 2 weeks ago. Lastly, although I love automatic watches, I am getting surgery on my shoulder in three weeks, and wont be able to move my arm freely for the next 5 months- so since I am impatient, automatic is not an option.
I have found the 300m EcoZilla, and love the look of it, but it seems huge, although my 0467 is similar in width its about 3mm thinner... its just intimidating.
Open to any and all ideas-
