    You choose - Dive watch under $5k

    Hey all,

    I've been thinking about adding a dive watch to my lineup. I want to go new - grey market/AD is fine. 41mm max size. I've done tons of looking around and decided to start a thread to help! Looking for ideas I haven't thought of...

    I used to own a Tudor BBR and a Tag Heuer Aquaracer 300m. I sold the Tudor because I felt it was too "flashy", I sold the Tag because I couldn't connect with it. I recently tried on a Black Bay Black and really liked it, so that's a starting point.

    What do you have!

    I'm considering a Black Bay blue bezel with in house movement. My only hesitation is the case thickness on my 6 3/4" wrist.

    Pelagos? I know it's 44mm but it fits smaller and lighter than the in house BB

    I'd recommend JLC NS too,there are several NOS pieces I've seen,mostly in the US that goes slightly above your budget (usually around 5.5-6k depending on the strap/bracelet options) it's 42mm and wears small due to short downward lugs

    I'd get a titanium Sinn T2 (with its 2,000M WR) on the bracelet and call it day.

    I’ll throw this one into the mix, simply because it doesn’t come up much and I happen to be very happy with it. 40mm with a slightly different “vintage” vibe...
