Sadly, Lorne, who made these watches, has now passed away so I do not think there are any more available.

That is totally kitsch and totally cool!

I bought a vintage DateJust. Timeless, classy and - in my opinion - just as iconic as the Submariner. At the time (2016) my 1977 watch cost about the same as a brand new Tudor. Now prices have gone up a bit, but it's still about the most affordable model from the brand.

Everyone needs a Seiko in their collection. Also check out some of the lower-end "quality brands" like Christopher Ward who make superb watches with almost the same specs as the big names for a fraction of the cost. It makes it more affordable to get an idea of what styles you enjoy.

The C65 is a superb dive watch. I almost wish I had kept mine, but the mismatch between the lume pips and the white text on the bezel just kept on setting me off! The bracelet is superb - I'd definitely recommend buying on a bracelet then adding an aftermarket strap to change up the look - the quick release pins make this simple.

You are a far braver man than I! I'd love to get rid of the cyclops on a lot of watches but I just know I'd end up with a shattered crystal if I attempted it.

wristwatchreviewuk commented on Oris Diver's Sixty-Five Review ·

I think this watch is really classy. I really fancy adding one to my collection - perhaps the Bronze Carl Brashear variant.
