Would say an orient kamasu would be awesome. Its hardy and has 200m WR.

But if you're open to quartz, ita hard to beat a g-shock casioak. They look great, are durable, just an awesome choice.

For sure!

Hey, everyone, really appreciate all the support and suggestions. I'm going to try and summarize here. Bear with me!

Most importantly, my wife understood and didn't kill me (just yet, I'm sure she'll find a reason to, eventually!)

I have had it for about 18 months'ish. Thats my best guess, coz I didn' buy it, it was a gift from my wife because she saw me insessantly looking at dive watches all day.

Honestly, I have been happily going down the watch enthusiast rabbit hole ever since and kinda lost track. I bought a lot of watches since then (all under 500 usd, thats my budget right now), and have received a beautiful seiko gmt ssk001 from my wife just last month. Honestly, I shouldn't complain, I love the watch and I wont stop getting more, honestly.

But, that means I get to buy another dive watch!!!

I am so down the rabbit hole and loving it!!

Thanks for the support and suggestions! I will keep the actual watch forever for the memories but get a new diver! (Or two, maybe more.....)
