The great folks at Discount Watch Store ran a 10hour special on these a day or so ago for a no brainier price of $69.00. Just couldn't help myself. Very nice watch and inexpensive considering the movement (NH35A). Only thing I wasn't thrilled with was a 40mm case but I can live with it at that price. Its a nice piece if it does as well as my other PD with the NH35A, I cant complain. The blue dial in this watch is just gorgeous. Stock pics dont do it justice at all. A great engine showing up in a lot of the Pro Divers and Grand Divers now. I'm sure we will see a lot more of it. It is definitely a great time keeper.

I saw the sale, and I was really tempted to jump all over one of these, but I didn't and now I really regret it, the entire package is a winner. The newely decorated rotor looks great and the whole watch is gorgeous. Congrats on the new addition, and wear it well!

I bought the same watch, for $69 bucks it is a no brainer. When it breaks you can just toss it, in the mean time you have a great looking watch to beat the tar out of. I will say I would have liked a coin edge bezel a lot more.

I agree a coin edge bezel and a 46mm case size would make these fly off the shelfs, but thats what I like, larger coin edge style bezlels, I don't mind 42 or 43mm but thats about as small as I like to go, I like the larger divers, but not the over complicated larger watches such as the SAN and Venom, a excursion is on my list though!

I could see this in a 42 to 44 as well. the 46 is a bit to big for me
