    Scurfa Bell Diver thoughts?

    Anyone have one of these? I see some see reviews but nothing super recent?

    The movement is kinda generic...not crazy about another basic movement...but it's a solid runner.
    And the bracelet? Is it actually pin and collar? This is actually a turnoff for me: they are ass to work with and even my watch guy gets irritated if I bring one in. I'd do the rubber only but it seems that not an option. Still the construction seems well above what you'd expect...

    Love to hear a thought or two...preferably from owners!

    If you head over to the Dive Watch forum and do a search there’s a Scurfa Bell Diver thread with lots of comments from owners.

    I have one and I love it. Mine has the rubber but wear it with my shiznit nato. It’s my second micro watch so I may not be the best to ask. I do like it more than my Helm watch. Appears to be very well made. What I love is the watch is made by and for a professional diver. It’s a solid tool watch for sure.

    I do not own a Scurfa. However, enough people swear by the brand that I would have no hesitation about buying one if the aesthetics appealed to me. Too many people absolutely love Scurfa for it to be a poor quality watch.

    As said above, do some digging in the dive watch forum and you'll sense an SKX-like enthusiasm for Scurfa.

    If they weren’t so enormous I would get one.

    I size my own bracelets and I've never had an issue with the pin and collar type. Those tiny screws used my Omega and Kobold have been a huge pain. Tudor uses a single screw/bar that screws into the bracelet link and it's awesome.

    Really? I struggled with a Seiko and it was just impossibly frustrating. I detest that design! And yeah the Tudor bracelets are nice. I know the bracelet seems like a little thing but it can have a big impact. On a watch this size, it'd also be nice to see a bit more taper in the bracelet but that has to be a price point issue

    My BD 1 lives on rubber as the bracelet is a fairly recent option that I can’t pass comment on but if the bracelet is anything like the watches Scurfa turn out you’re onto a winner.
