Show me your Ali/GB/dh/eBay/whatever deals with 100m or more. We're all here to look at cool watches, so pics are a plus and bonus points if you also provide a link. Aaàaaaaaaand Go!

    200m WR. Sapphire window, ceramic bezel, 316L stainless case, and a Miyota auto movement. Bought this for £76, and it's fantastic.

    Re: High Water Resistance

    I recently picked up a heimdallr trident. Not totally inexpensive, but all in to Canada around $220 CAD. Rated at 300m.

    Not tested, but it has held up just fine to swimming, high pressure hose etc. Screw down crown, sapphire...it's burly, but everyone who has seen it (okay, I showed it to a lot of people) have been impressed with it.

    Mine is the black one. Unfortunately I cannot post a link, but if you search "heimdallr watch trident" it will pop up.

    I think this was mentioned elsewhere, but they offer flieger type A and B and a Damasco-esque crosshair dial.

    Heimdallr was mentioned. They also have a field-ish watch with 100m WR, an homage to the IWC Mark XII (alongside pilot dials).

    I can't fathom why Heimdallr couldn't get the hour hand length right on the Type B. Corgeut, San Martin, etc. did.
