I like the way it looks, but 895 bucks is more than twice too much for that Miyota. 1990 for an SW-200 version just has to be a fucking joke. The Longines HydroConquest auto with a ceramic bezel, with far superior finishing and specs, retails for $1600, and the L888 in these now features Silicium.
There’s far better stuff to be found for way less. In a similar aesthetic, and with a Miyota alright - the Baltic Aquascaphe. If you feel like playing the STP1-11 roulette - the Meraud Bonaire.
Oh, and within $2K, you probably can get the Rado Captain Cook, with a Nivachron-equipped Powermatic 80 C07.611 hidden underneath some of the most beautiful dials that I’ve ever seen in Rado, and generally in vintage-style dive watches.
So, as much as this watch looks nice, Bulova can go fuck themselves.
My manner of thinking, so you say, cannot be approved. Do you suppose I care? A poor fool indeed is he who adopts a manner of thinking for others!
