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.
It's easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.

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.
