    BSF send a few pictures our way via Tapatalk when you get a chance.
    Never been on a cruise, but plenty of AI in Cancun and DR

Incredibly easy to change out bracelet with other bracelets and straps. The only comparison between a SKX and a Marinemaster is both are made by Seiko and nothing else. Like comparing a SARB033 with a Grand Seiko. Not comparable.
    I’m one who said that the MM and SKX were comparable, and that the MM is like the SKX but simply more and better.

    What I think the SKX007/009 has going for it is that it’s cheap enough to not worry about. That, along with a common movement, no applied dial furniture to fall off, simple bezel construction, an offset crown, smooth & comfortable case, and a shtiload of lume makes the SKX the best tool-diver-beater you can buy, IMO.

    But if I had to spend more, and not Rolex money, the MM would be my pick, absolutely. More comfortable than others and better specs than almost any other diver.
