Happy Friday and it is time — Buying Time — for a look at some great pre-owned watches on offer. Today’s theme is dive watches, which I would surmise is the largest, most talked about, most popular “category” of watches out there. And for good reason — most of us just can’t resist a good looking watch that we can wear with us in the pool or the ocean, SCUBA diving or desk diving. Dive watches could be one of the most debated categories as well — just ask any ten aficionados what defines a dive watch (or Google it) and see the range of answers you get. Of course there are standards like the ISO 6425 (which is by no means compulsory) and then there are specs: helium escape valve, luminosity, underwater legibility, bezel design, depth/water resistance rating, strap style, and more.
Which of these details matters to you, well that’s for you to decide. I’m certainly not here today to get into the minutiae and history of dive watches (boooring) — I just want to share with you some awesome, water-loving watches that are looking for a good home. Let’s jump on in and check out this week’s lineup of pre-owned dive watches.
