I have owned my Rolex Sea Dweller for about 20 years, I've always owned and worn dive watches but I've also been diving since 1974, first as a sport diver and then in the commercial diving industry which required that I do a lot of chamber diving hence the Sea Dweller with the helium value. Never regret buying that watch, can wear it anywhere and for any occasion......

I have a Rolex Sea Dweller 166600 that I bought when my son was born, so 26 years ago....pretty much my daily, my wife has an Omega Planet Ocean with orange bezel, I'd actually like to add a Seiko Tuna Can vintage watch to the collection. These were very popular in the Commercial Diving industry back in the day.

I love them , they get better and better when they release new divers .We can see a convoluted evolution of the series from the very 1st model to the present one such a updated hand set , better luminous bezel and more refined case flanks
Christopher Ward Trident C60 GMT 1000 Blue is my favorite model for the brand .

Yeah i am very tempted by the Trident Elite. I think they just look so good! Reasonable price and made in the UK too (well at least a British brand)

A couple of "Bird Watches" Cheap...Cheap...Cheap. I don't like to bring anything too valuable on vacation. Beside, I never went below sixty feet.

I had a Longines Legend Diver no-date and should never have sold it.

I just bought a cheapie Spinnaker that is a Fifty Fathoms homage and I quite like it.

I've owned lots of Panerai watches, though none of the Submersible line, do those count as "dive" watches? The originals certainly were.
