    Christopher Ward has really nice watches but I am not sure if they have their own factory or just outsourceing those.

    I like integrated braclets, straps or the ones that have very little gap in between. Probably that's just a personal preference.

    They have some of their own production facilities, including facilities where they produce their in-house movements (though at their lower price ranges they use outsourced movements from Sellita or ETA). They probably outsource some fabrication work as well, but many companies do this (Swatch group brands, TAG, etc).

    Has anyone mentioned Squale 50 atmos? Aren't they around $1K?
    Also, Seiko Shogun. Only problem is no ceramic bezel. Though I think you can get an aftermarket one for the Shogun. I think they tick all the other boxes.

    So it appears I tend to pay attention to the brand rank.
    And never heard about Squale. Does it stand with Longines?

    Maybe do some research as I was also thinking Squale for you. They are certainly known for dive watches and especially cases. I'm thinking you may be more of a used Tag Heuer person. Nothing wrong with that at all, it just seems you are looking more for brand name and less at heritage.

    Squale is a smaller brand. A bit younger than Longines, but they've still been around for over 70 years. They started as a case-maker and then moved into watches, specifically dive watches, in the early days of dive watches in the 1950s (originally marketed exclusively through dive supply shops for diving professionals). Their 500m rated cases have been used by the likes of Blancpain, Heuer, and Doxa. They also supplied watches to the Italian armed forces for a time.

    Like Doxa, Squale is something of a niche brand that only makes dive watches, and tool dive watches rather than dress dive watches. Hard to really rank it against Longines for a variety of reasons. If you're looking to "impress" people with a name brand, more people have probably heard of Longines than Squale. Longines is simply a bigger brand with more advertising and a larger presence in jewelry stores and boutiques. I'd probably give Longines the nod as a slightly nicer product (and is priced a bit higher than Squale). I'd say Squale is a peer to Certina or Mido.

    Your wrist is slightly bigger than mine I'm at 6.75 inches.

    This is a 40mm CW for reference. I also have a squale 50 atmos which wears a little bigger.

    Actually I more look for a brand with heritage, not only being famous.
    I have certina DS Action Precidrive and I don't know why I want a step up to a watch with automatic movement and higher rank.
