I'm a huge Japanese watch fan. Love them. Have since I was about 8 years old with my first G-shock. These days I'm rocking an Ananta DR. And I (think) I've got a Citizen Grand Complication on the way. Suffice to say, I'm unbiased.
I don't like divers. I just don't. I've had an Omega PO, but just because it looks baller.
I don't hold it against diver collectors--different strokes for different folks. My roommate has like 50 divers.
But why is it that Japanese watch collectors, even more than brands that are notorious for making diver watches (Rolex, Omega), are far more obsessed with divers? I'd wager that greater than 85% of threads here are on divers.
I'm seriously not ranting, but I'd like to understand the connection.
