    Certina DS Action Diver vs. Seiko Sumo - what would you choose?

    clearly some differences here - swiss vs. japanese movement (i think both are good options), the sumo looks larger on the wrist (but with an 8" wrist, either is fine), the sumo now has a ceramic bezel insert. But a lot of similarities. both ISO-standard dive watches, both have good, solid-looking bracelets, both brands have a nice reputation for turning out quality dive watches.

    just fishing for opinions.

    My vote goes to the DS Action Diver Powermatic 80 Special Edition.

    Based on looks alone I'd say the Sumo for sure. Don't think you can go wrong with either -the Certina will have sapphire xtal though.
