Love watches!

I thought I'd liven up this forum a little...

I'm MOSTLY a dive watch type person.. I have several....all price ranges. All types of bands but really prefer the nato-type bands since they are easy to change out.

A couple of years ago I stumbled up a British watch brand I really like....called SCURFA. I've bought three of them and shipping to the states is fast and problem free.... On of the best inexpensive watch brands I've ever owned. This is the latest purchase:



Whatcha THINK?

Hi Chuck,

There is a very similar thread running on here, but anyway I`m rocking my 1998 Dynamic today.

Nice watch! Kinda reminds me of a Sinn EZM.

I also like dive watches, but find most of them have cases that are too thick for my preferences. The one I wear the most is a titanium Omega Seamaster w/blue-wave dial. If I get time this weekend, I will try to post a pic or two.

I always liked divers. Black face, rotating bezel, stainless and water resistant. I put a few Seiko divers and a few Invicta divers through hell while surfcasting. Yeah, things get smashed into slippery rocks in the night. The Omega Seamaster 2254.50 was a favorite for eight years (worn to office only - no surfcasting), but then it needed about 1/3 of its original cost in maintenance. Bye-bye Seamaster. Went back to Seiko SKX175 with a replacement Oyster bracelet. Not as accurate, but a tough watch.

LOVE that watch! If I didn't have watches on every flat surface in the house, I get one too! You'll be really pleased!
