    Vintage styled diver

    I like classic/vintage inspired designs and need a sports/divers watch for my collection.

    in terms of aesthetics I like the Tudor Black bay, Breitling Heritage diver and the Helios Tropik (currently sold
    out)

    Simple question, are there any other similar watches I have not yet discovered which I should consider?

    My requirements are:
    -42mm or under and not too thick
    - ideally under £1,200 (although could stretch for something special)

    I think the Tropik pictured below (not my photograph) aesthetically is almost perfect.

    Re: Vintage styled diver

    Longines legend diver, Doxa, Certina or Eterna could fit the bill.

    the first two maybe is out of budget. I don't know if used it can be reached. The last one i think is on budget.
    I wish you all my best and please post photos when you will have the watch at your wrist
    Best regards

    Thanks for the suggestions, much appreciated, however I think that I have now found the watch. A Squale 50 Atmos.

    Check out Steinhart's offerings. The O1V and OVM are great watches.

    Re: Vintage styled diver

    The second I read the title a Longines Legends Diver came to mind......


    although I must admit that the Halios Tropik is very nice at a very nice price point.
