    Dive watch recommendations (please help)

    I'm trying to find an everyday diver in my budget and after searching for days I'm hoping someone could help. Quartz or auto (Quartz preferable) stick indices, and at least 43mm. I have about $300-400. Here are some pics of my favorites but they're hard to find and over budget but I think they'll help the idea of what I'm looking for. Thanks so much for anyone who takes the time.

    Re: Dive watch recommendations (please help)

    A couple of years ago I bought a Deep Blue watch from my stepson; I think it was a Sun Diver. An auto, anyway. The finish was really good, the watch felt and looked like it could have cost much more than it actually did. It also wore rather small despite the - for me - large 45 or so diameter of the case. The watch definitely left a really positive impression on me.

    See the hot deal of the day in the "Head's Up!" thread on a Revue Thommen automatic diver with ETA 2824 movement. About $250 if you get the rebate, too, which is a stunning price.

    Quartz - Scurfa line-up. Can't think of a better value than those.

    If you are after a quartz then look into the Seiko offerings. In the auto camp I've not had my Deep Blue Master 1000 long and it's a lovely bit of kit.

    I would have recommended the Bernhardt 2 years ago when it was $200. It was the best $200 watch one could buy...

    The Corsair II I recommended wasn't available 2 years ago. This is an uprated model with a 9015, as opposed to the Diver's 8215. I recommended that model since the OP wanted stick indices. The Diver is still a solid option, otherwise, IMO. I love mine.
