50 meters is pretty low wr for a "dive" watch. And the first one has a leather strap. I guess they're going for the look.
I woke up this morning to discover a photo of myself sleeping. I live alone.

That's my guess too.

I have no complaints about the ruggedness of Timex watches.

The above is one of my oldest watches - have had it for about 13 years, changed the battery 4 or 5 times and numerous strap changes. It has literally been tortured by watch wearing standards as well as exposure to swimming, hot tubs, showers and even being lost in my yard during the winter months of northeast Ohio (I live in the snow belt and average about 8-10 feet of snow per year).



Go for it, "It takes a licking and keeps on ticking."

Some Timex models have "Water Resistant" leather straps, which may explain the use in a diver.

I'm thinking more like Ashtabula.

DING DING DING - we have a winner!

vineman with his Geauga County answer.

Although jb182 will receive partial credit since that watch has spent time in Ashtabula County as well.
