    Recommend a nice BIG DIVER FOR $1500 or less

    Im looking for a BIG Diver. Or a nice big watch which i can wear everyday. and do with everyday activities.
    Something with good wrist precense. Maybe 44mm and up. 42mm could be ok but it depends really (the helson 42mm is bigger compared to say a hamilton navy 42mm)

    Since its gonna be big and more of when I need a rough watch, probably looking more at Titanium but will consider other options.

    So far have been looking at the Oris Small Seconds:
    64376387454RS

    I don't know if this eBay seller is legit or good but that's what I've found. Other that that there is Jomashop which is also grey.

    Next up, I have considered the Helson Sharkdiver (Bronze or Titanium)

    I know there are some Germans out there too which are good? (Damasko/Dievas? etc. )

    Just looking for some recommendations :)

    Something that would be hardy, good and ready to take a good beating (if needed)

    I'd grab a Deivas Vortex. 44mm and a Ti fricker case with an ETA movement. WUS is letting my upload a pic of the one I sold but google came through:

    I think Alpina divers are priced around your budget.

    The Seiko Sumo is 45mm with longer lugs and about a third of your budget. It's a high quality watch. I mean, the bracelet is kind of crappy and the lug holes are a little too far from the case for straps, but it's a very strong offering.

    How did it get so late so soon?
