I like watches the same way I like everything, I get into it. Just got a new bespoke automatic watch from Germany on Friday and sized the bracelet just now. Here it is, an H2O Kalmar 2. It's the smallest watch I own at 42mm but it does not wear small at all and fits right in with my 44-45mm collection. I've wanted an orange dive watch for a while, but Doxas just are not for me, so I finally bit the bullet and ordered this one. Very nice.

Damn , thats a lot of watches ! A friend gave me a cool dive watch a couple years ago but it " ate " batteries and didnt keep time well . I had a casio g shock and liked it but it freaked out one day and that was that .
The last watch I had that worked perfect was when Timex came out with that indiglo deal . Man , I liked that watch a lot ! I'm tempted to buy a cheapie casio " nerd watch " .... theyre easy to read , are very light weight and are water resistant to a point . They have a back light too

It is a tank and weighs 290 or 295 grams, can't remember which. Azimuth is Singapore based, but the watches are Swiss made. I don't know who is making these for them. It doesn't look like any Swiss diver I ever handled. The clasp is unique and super heavy duty. I've never seen a clasp like it on any diver. All in all it is the nicest watch I own and was a very pleasant surprise when I got it. They discontinued the Sea Hum series, but they're still out there. They were originally 2799, but I picked mine up new at 1500 and would do it again.

Kind of jealous of all the really gorgeous wrist wear being posted here. I can't wear a watch, or any metal jewelry. I break out in a really painful rash that only allows me to wear non alloys. My daily wear wedding band is silicone as are the tunnels in my ear lobes. I do have a tungsten wedding band with Koa inlay that I wear when I need to be fancy but any type of stainless etc gives me fits

I have a Tag knockoff that I bought in Shanghia 15 years ago for about 30 bucks. Best watch I've ever owned. Keeps perfect time and it's absolutely indestructible.

Bronze and copper really raise hell with my skin. Makes the rest of them look like a walk in the park
