Is this the best microbrand dive watch?

The Vanuatu is a standout for sure.馃槑馃寘

I'm partial to the Helm Miyako myself. And I had to pass it the chance when my turn on the waiting list came up.

But it's this Horizon Nautilus that really floats my boat.馃槑馃ぉ

I do like the bezel on that! Reminds me of the fiftyfathoms - I鈥檓 looking for another microbrand dive watch but 40mm or less

Love my Helms! Kept these two and gifted one to my local watch guy.

Helm is an awesome brand and it鈥檚 a shame they were not in the microbrand tournament. I own the Komodo and I love it. A bit chunky but still a great watch.

Is this the best microbrand wristwatch

Do you have massive wrists and don't mind thick and chunky divers?

Maybe MAYBE you can argue the best dive watch microbrand. You can't call them the best when they have a simple catalog with nothing but dive watches. Zelos, Baltic and the list goes on have more weight to their name.

Baltic offers a dress watch with a micro rotor under 600

Got mine on today too!

Up to and well above $500, factually unbeatable (assuming you can get one and have the wrist).

Especially with that ISO rating 馃

Availability is the problem but the watches in everyone else鈥檚 WRUW posts always draw attention to my eyes 馃憖

Not sure how best is defined, but for me, Baltic is my favorite for pure vintage inspired design, and Zelos is my favorite for just cool and interesting designs
