Ohh that’s hot. A bit tall but domed sapphire. Will see what they end up price-wise second hand.

Totally agree. The plastic dive helmet is cheesy, for that price they should have gone brass like Stan did, but it’s not a deal breaker. If these come down on the second hand market, I’m in.

Good enough looking watch but it is a $500 watch at best with those specs. LE or not.

I like it..very similar to many of my Steinys..the retail price is a bit high, though..
Ebels are a lot like women that lack a low cut dress that zips up the side...neither get the love that they deserve...

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.
