    Thermocompensated Quartz Divers with Ceramic Bezel ?

    Just as the title reads, can anyone provide me with any brand out there that carries this ? I love the Certina DS Action Precidrive and the Grand Seiko SBGX117 but none those have Ceramic bezels, which is crazy from Seikos part considering that the watch cost over $3,500

    sinn UX has a steel bezel, no ceramic, but uses thermocompensated quartz.

    do other swatch group divers use a similar quartz movement to the precidrive?

    Longines Hydroconquest quartz might, but they don't offer that with a ceramic bezel. Hamilton, Tissot, Mido, and Rado don't have quartz divers.

    Hamilton will be releasing a quartz diver later this year. As for it having either PowerDrive or PreciDrive technology — more will probably be known on this subject matter when it is officially released.

    No date on that Hamilton!

    I think that gray dialed version on the nato is in my future. Price is a bit steep, though.

    Loved this watch until I saw 37mm. Maybe for my wife but way to small

    Dang I always thought the Seiko had a ceramic bezel. The more you know!

    Thatís a toughy.

    Breitlings donít, Longines doesnít, and I donít think the old Seamaster Quartz had ceramic, just aluminum.

    Iíll do some pondering.
