These divers don't look bad; however, the rest of the stuff they're selling looks like castoffs from the Florida Wartche Triangle. Balmer was one of the brands that John House used to flog on the old ShopAtHome and ShopNBC with Tim Temple. These other watches look like the crap House used to sell.

Have worn the Phoibos brand. For the money, likely a better bet than these.

Looking at the price difference now, the Loreo is far less expensive. Phoibos autos are now higher priced.

The Phoibos auto was a solid watch. Had no doubt it would do fine in water but never tried it out. For the price at the time, was well done and finished.

Well i ended up ordering the the green bezel with black dial and it came yesterday. In person its completely different from the picture. The green bezel was a black green color while the case had some type of black chrome finish to it. The bracelet looked to be two toned....all in all not what the picture showed and its going back. On the other hand it looked like a decently made watch for the $$ and even included a pin removal tool for the bracelet.
