    show your Engineer Master II Diver II!

    ...how come there aren't more pictures of this piece? Lots of reviews and photos of its predecessor, but the EMII Diver II seems like a much more cohesive, well thought-out piece.

    Have pictures? Show 'em!

    Re: show your Engineer Master II Diver II!

    If you really dig back the color and hand suggestion on this was in a post I wrote so I kind of felt responsible for the Ball green version of the Diver II. Most likely just coincidence. If you get this with both the bracelet and rubber with the Ball deployant it is a pretty nice set up. I did not post much since in the pictures on the bracelet I was in discussion with Ball back and forth since we could not get the bracelet to fit the newer thinner case for the II model. What we discovered is it is a completely different bracelet end link so starting with a strap model you need the Diver II bracelet and not the standard EMII bracelet that the previous model used. One thing I did not suggest was the move to the side-by-side day/date. I always prefer the split version that the previous model and the Skindiver have. Would be better with just a date over this setup. I know this is a mixed bag since I've seen some people list this(staggered day date) as a reason to not buy the Skindiver.

    Note I believe the lug width was 20mm so a whole host of straps fit perfect.

    This has such a great dial. I think I need to get a green one back. Besides it's kind of the Samanator Edition...At least that is what I keep telling myself!

    Hey Ball wouldn't the Skindiver look great with these hands also...Hint, hint.


    Great shot of some Ball divers (this has the wrong bracelet on it for the Diver II...I do not have photos with the correct one). See how big the Skindiver looks here even though it gives up 2-3 mm to the others.

    Wow, thanks for the pictures! Do you have a link to the full post? It's also a tough watch to find via google or the forum search too because it's named the same as the previous version, with only the SKU changing.

    I believe there are a few other Diver II posts with the white.

    I think the diver II has the same clasp if memory serves me right.

    Nice! Have a preference between the two? Which one tends to get more wrist time?

    I sold the diver II and like the older version better. I never loved the green.

    Interesting. Did they wear about the same? Lume profile on the older one seems more compelling, but the cleaner dial layout on the II is definitely appealing...
