    dimensions and differences for sportwatches

    Hi,
    Pardon me if this is readily available somewhere, but I've looked here, there and on Stowa's site and still can't find what I need.

    Does anyone know the dimensions and weight of the SeaTime vs the ProDiver.
    Also, are there any other differences between the two besides the case dimensions and the water resistance ?
    Lume the same, build quality the same etc... ?

    Thanks a lot !!

    btw, I am really intrigued by these watches and am considering one for my next purchase.
    Peace,
    Floyd

    Re: dimensions and differences for sportwatches

    I know what the Seatime weighs because I owned one until last Tuesday. The lume is very good, but not the best. The Seatime I had used a solid caseback, but that is no longer the case.

    I suspect the Prodiver lume is in the top ten, however - most everyone raves about it. The Prodiver weights in more because of the heavier gauge crystal and the solid casback.

    Most all of the below information is taken from the Stowa website.

    Seatime
    6.1 ounces with bracelet
    Very good lume
    42mm wide
    13.50mm thick
    3mm sapphire crystal
    See through caseback
    Waterresistant/300m

    Prodiver
    Exceptional lume
    1000m / 3300ft depth rating
    Swiss-made automatic helium valve
    3.70mm thick sapphire crystal glass
    Heavy-duty caseback
    Case diameter (mm): 42.0
    Case thickness (mm): 15.0

    Never have I read where someone described a failure of any type with these divers. They are as good, if not better, than any diver in their price category and even in price categories exceeding it.

    Both models are very highly respected and it's just a matter of what you like. They are heavy, very well crafted, very comfortable, and built to outlast the wrist on which it sits.

    Be sure to post images once you have one. We like to live vicariously through other happy Stowa diver owners.

    Thanks for that, Inlanding. Glowing reviews. That's the feeling I get from researching these tonka tuff watches.

    So both watches have the same case dimensions then right ? I guess if only the crystal and caseback are different then the weight of the watches should be close to the same ?

    If that's the case, and pro-diver has the better lume, then I guess I should go for that one.

    thanks again !!
    Peace,

    YOu know I just checked that out. That would make the pro-diver almost as heavy as the IWC Ingeniuer !!!!! That is a heavy beast.

    I have one of each...

    I have a rhodium dialed ProDiver and a black dialed SeaTime with the sapphire caseback. I bought them both on bracelets but I now wear the SeaTime on the rubber strap. My ProDiver weighs about 230 grams on the bracelet and the SeaTime is roughy 20 grams lighter. The big difference, however, is how they sit on my wrist. Because of the design of the PD caseback it sits higher and because of the extra weight it is definitely wears "bigger". IMO the PD has better lume on the hands and the ST has better lume on the dial. Personally if I had to choose between the two I'd go with the ST by a slim margin only because it's slightly lighter. I surf with it and it doesn't move around on my wrist as much when paddling out, etc.

    I switched from a Di-model "Chronissimo" to the rubber strap some time ago. No complaints so far with wearing the Seatime on rubber.

    I find the rubber strap very...

    comfortable. I also own a Girard Perregaux Sea Hawk II and a Jean Richard Diverscope, both of which are on very well made rubber straps. I think the Stowa rubber strap is almost as comfortable but I like it's micro-adjustable deployant clasp better than the others. It's also got a nice vanilla scent like most high end rubber straps have.

    Re: dimensions and differences for sportwatches

    This is great info. Anyone know if the Seatime caseback will fit on the PD? Just wondering how that might reduce the PD's ride height...
