Deep Blue Pro Aqua 1500. Slammer dive watch, highly refined Seiko hack/crown wind 24j day/date automatic with a 41 hour power reserve, N36 movement. Proving to be very accurate. Winding/setting is super smooth, Seiko has stepped it up a bit with this movement from the meat and potatoes 7s26 movement.
Miss my Orange Monster. I wore one for 5 years and sold it like a fool....but this is a nice different replacement. 5000ft/1500m waterproof rating and sapphire crystal, 120 click unidirectional bezel. Loving this piece and it's extraordinarily comfortable amd balanced for its size. Lume visuals on this is stellar.
Unfortunately, the words "Swiss-Made" at the bottom of the dial refer to the whole watch itself. Also, due to the cost involved, actual watch parts that are genuinely made in that nation go into upper-end luxury watches or High-End timepieces. The kind that cost as much as a nice house. Won't get into more details here since it would really derail the topic. PM me if you want to know more about parts availability regarding affordable brands such as Steinhart.
After about a month with the Seiko 5 I found I was still suffering from watch fever. So I rationalized the need for one I could trust in the water and had a temp. readout. Most were just too darn big for my skinny wrist, but I did find this Casio Forester that works. The Seiko's still the primary, but maybe this one will serve well for rough duty.
