Tool watches appeal to a lot of guys because they are meant to be little durable machines you can take around with you anywhere, and are actually useful on a daily basis. Divers are like little portable submarines. One thing that dive watches are designed to deliver well is legibility. Imagine trying to read a watch dial in murky water. A dive watch needs great lume, easy to see hands and relatively simple dials. Dive watches really evolved into what they are today in the 1950s and 1960s when diving itself evolved. Brands like Rolex and Omega fought one another to make dive watches with the most street cred. They each succeeded and many of today's most popular dive watches began life in those eras. That fact however is a double edged sword, because today's watches are still designed like their ancestors were half a century ago. Where are the modern divers that still feel classic?

It is a very well designed watch and like it ...only objection I have is the 3G's price tag, it seems expensive for a Sellitas, then again anything with a Maurice Lacroix name on it is golden these days.
