I am having trouble finding the next watch I want I know the details of what I am looking for, but could use some recommendations please. The only other watch I have is a Steinhart Ocean GMT.

What I am looking for is this:

- automatic
- Stainless Steal
- not a stereotypical diver
- blue face, simple, clean face, no extra dials
- date, cyclops is ok
- sapphire
- 22mm lugs

- preferably a brown leather band

I am looking in the $300-$350 range. Any recommendations or tips would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Other than you not wanting a stereotypical diver, this watch meets most of your requirements. As for the strap, you can always get an aftermarket one. Price is under $200

Maybe something by Edouard Lauzieres?



By the way, that is an EL strap with a signed tang buckle!
Sorry I don't know the price of their autos- mine is a Ronda quartz.
But EL owner James Elsener is a WTF member and I'm sure would gladly answer your contact.

I am not sure you will be able to buy a blue dialled brown strap diver directly unless you go try used.

Bernhardt Sea Shark $239




Deep Blue Divemaster 500 with eta 2824 on sale at $399




Deep Blue Pro Sun Diver $281



And if you are prepared to stretch it you could try Boschett's Cave Dweller $440

not a stereotypic dive watch? does that mean no rotating bezel? a watch with a high WR rating but not bezel? the bernhardt seems to be the ticket as it has a lot of features for a very good price. a blue face orient snorkeler might be the ticket if you can find one.

I think he means not a sub knockoff
