Do you like Modern Divers?

See I’m an old skool vintage aesthetic , reissue kinda guy! I love watches that oooooze a by gone era yet still creating a character of its own. Certain aspects of a great homage can be picked out as to referencing old brand references but all of its parts put together …… it’s original. 
but a watch like Sinn U50 comes along and makes think…… I like a modern diver?! Do you have what you’d class as a modern diver say an Oris Aquis? Or are you a vintage diver lover and therefore anything new and different is just too jarring?

I prefer vintage divers I picked up the Seiko Padi Turtle in 2017 but it just didn't grow on me so I off loaded it

Both please....

Vintage... even I'm not diving..

I wear my Aquis almost everyday but my Divers 65 is the one that I just love to wear and I’m more attached to 

·

I love the old vintage style divers and the history they allude to. The exciting times of Jacques Cousteau, the race to the bottom of the ocean, the exploration of the depths and of course Jaws. 😁 

I'm also excited to see what the new NTH Todaro looks like on the wrist when it comes out. It says it's not vintage style, but 'neo-classic'.

I like the refinement and updates in technology you get from modern pieces, as well as the assurance you get from something freshly under warranty. That said, I think vintage will always just look cool. Example: my cheap fossil diver from when I was 12 years old 😅 nothing to write home about but it makes me smile every time I look at it

While I fall in the both category myself, I probably lean more towards vintage. I just found a great deal on a Devil Diver and ordered it yesterday. 😀

I have an Omega Seamaster Diver 300M from 2007 and a Sinn U50 from last year, and I enjoy both.  I like this U50's all black look and unique MOP dial, and the technologies going into it like the hardened surface resistant to scratches.  U50 is just a very well-built diver that looks good too.

I tend to lean vintage myself. The watches from the 60s and 70s had some thing special. Having said that I wouldn't say no to a Aquis or U50 :).

Funny how we feel more attached to the vintage looking ones!;)
