    Orange dial diver for less than £500 ($750)

    Any particularly good candidates? OM, Mako, Deep Blue....what's hot and the best quality?

    The OM is a good choice. If you don't like the monster case, you can always get Jake B. to mod a 007 for you with his dial and hands. The shade of orange on the dial that Jake uses is awesome. The cost should run you around $250.

    My vote is for the Orange Sumo. I have the Black Sumo (love it) and have considered getting the Orange, but I already have 3 with Orange dials.
    Have a good day!

    This is the only orange I have (pic borrowed, sorry).
    If you could find one, you will have a very original diver powered by a Seiko 7S26 for less than 220 U$D.
    Seen this pic make me think of having the bezel indexes lumed to get the watch up-to-date...

    Well, you could find an SKX011. It's not everyones cup of tea with the gold hands.

    I love my Moray 3. I saw a used one on the sales forum for around $550 recently.

    If I was going to buy another orange dial, I would go with the Tortuga (not my pic).

    Hello B/W..For whatever reason Orange seems to be falling off as a production color,though for the life of me I can't imagine why!Out of the currently produced Orange watches in your price range I think the Helson "Tortuga" is the best of the bunch with the Deep Blue's coming in second...The Mako is an EXTREMELY entry level watch at best,the Orange Monster VERY good in it's price range..As for having a Seiko modded I have no good comments,sooo...

    Not saying it is the very best, but I'm wearing this today and LOVING it:



    Obvuiously a Sumo is much more refined and pretty much impossible to beat as an all-round package. I'd also check out a Remora (Remora 1, brushed, arabics, would be my pick), or a Moray (brushed, arabics).

    Orange Tsunami- built like a tank with a 6R15 Seiko movement. Sapphire dome and you can personalize.
    If you are patient buy a new one- it's worth it!
    Here's my Tsunami Sub:
