I love my Squale. I am sincerely interested if there is anything out there I would appreciate more in a blue dive watch. Stay under $2000! I think there are few contenders. I would love to hear what everyone comes up with.
Alpina Alpiner 4. I believe they recently released a 42mm model.
LONGINES Hydroconquest $1,200. 💁🏻♂️
Citizen ny0125-83e. $250ish.
Edit: oh blue my bad. Then this guy!
Thanks for these. What else you got? 😀
Seiko Samurai. Built like a tank yet elegant, much like a Planet Ocean. I have the black dial and love it, but this one winks at me often.
Scurfa Diver One
Scurfa Treasure Seeker
This is also my suggestion!
Under $2000. Basically any Seiko and Zodiac, plus Mido Ocean Star Tribute, Citizen Barnacle, all I could think of so far.
gosh , I have an Islander that is almost identical , I love it, which was 320 !!
I do very much like some of these ideas. The Scurfa and Zelos suggestions are so far my favorite although seem to be very limited available and rarely in stock. There is a Baltic and a Yema that may be contenders in this weight class as well
have the squale, love it! for under 2k? maybe a used Oris Aquis, but even then, the squale is awesome!
I have this Islander you are referring to as well and also love it. The Squale IMO is really worth the cost difference. Definitely keeping them both.
Plenty of Blue dials & good quality watches on Christopher Ward site, all well under 2k
Check them out:
To show just a few
I got this Citizen 300m diver, eco drive on rubber strap should have been £329 and in the sale for £129! It’s a beast
DOXA Sub 300t, I’ll desk dive hard this one
Helium release valve
BoR and clasp extension
Love the T600
Nothing is better!
Just bought it today it's very nice 😊
Thanks, I have been looking at these and they are on my list. 😎
That 60 Atmos is so beautiful, Such a nice colorway for summer. Looks great on white rubber or nato too! 👍
Any Tissot Seastar; they feel much more higher end than what I paid
Like the Scurfa watches but they are usually sold out
