Er...I think you've got most of them bud! I don't recognise half of them...
Begs the question: why do micro brands usually do divers?
I don't know the answer to that one. In any case I'm willing to bet there are dozens more from Europe and Asia. What about South America?
I think people have said legibility/simplicity, usefulness of bezel, ruggedness/toughness associated with them and general style.
Very masculine. Useful lume for nighttime legibility. Fits in with today's more casual lifestyles.

I'm thinking because there is a more addressable market that will buy their watches?

My preference for inexpensive dive watches reflects my work history and need for WR, robustness, durability, shock resistance, etc. $10K dive watches are too dear to me to risk the abuse.
I think the nature of a growing casual environment and lifestyles around the world supports it but that is speculation. Not everyone works in a low-hazard office environment.
Two reasons, the omega seamaster and the rolex submariner. Both have effected the idea of what a watch "should" be.
I think if a micro-brand came out with a unique affordable dress watch, it would be well received. It's harder to create a new dress watch design than a dive watch (where many look alike) IMO
