Purchased a month ago,and worn almost every day since. I haven't worn a watch in 20 years before this purchase,but I'm really enjoying this one.
The dial is large enough for my aging eyes;the quality is very good,and according to the jeweler whom adjusted the band for me,maintenance will be minimal compared to the Rolex or Omega.

What is a dive watch?
A dive watch is a type of watch that’s built for divers to wear underwater. Dive watches come with high level of water resistance, so they can withstand the water pressure when deep underwater. A dive watch usually has a water resistance of up to 200m (660ft), but FeelNever dive watches can handle much higher levels of water pressure.
How does a dive watch work?
The main function of a dive watch is to withstand water pressure and keep the watch’s case free from water while on the wrist of a diver. The dive watch has many features that help keep water out, here are the 2 main features: Screw-down Crown: A dive watch will allow you to screw-down your crown tightly. This helps keep the case airtight and keeps water out. Screw-in Caseback: A dive watch is fitted with a screw-in caseback that’s sealed to ensure that water cannot get in through the back of the watch. Then the second function of a dive watch helps a diver track the time spent underwater. How a dive watch does this is with its rotating bezel. A dive watch’s rotating bezel can either be a: Uni-directional rotating bezel: It can only rotate in one direction Bi-directional rotating bezel: It can rotate in both directions A uni-directional rotating bezel is only used on modern dive watches today. As this is to prevent any mistakes from turning the bezel the wrong way underwater. Uni-directional bezels can only turn anti-clockwise.
How does the bezel work on a dive watch?
Every dive watch has a rotating bezel. This bezel is used by the diver to keep track of the time spent underwater. There are two ways that a dive watch can track the time spent underwater using the dive watch’s bezel. Count Up This is the easiest way. You just need to rotate the bezel to match up with the minute hand at the beginning of your dive. Then you can see how much time has elapsed since then within the hour. Count Down This method needs a bit of math before hand. However, this is the traditional and safest way to use a bezel as a timer on a dive. You will need to first decide how long you want to dive for. Then take that time and subtract it from 60 minutes. E.g. : 60 mins – 20 mins = 40 mins Then take that time (e.g. 40 mins), and line that time up with the minute hand. So for example line up the 40 marker on the bezel. Then the time will count down to the marker, for 20 minutes in this case.
