After seeing a couple of these posted at TZ (of all places) and taking advantage of a holiday weekend sale I ordered one of these bad boys. I never really understood the dislike for the brand , but we all have opinions. Some hate Smiths and I'm not a big Orient but that's what makes these places fun. I agree that Stan Boostacsh sold out and made some unsubstantiated claims about his product but there are some decent Deep Blues out there for OK prices. This one was 160 after the deal.


44 mm, WR 300 m., NH35 movement, Sapphire crystal, and a surprisingly supple silicon strap Plus it's freakin' GREEN. Makes for a fun summer bang around .

I am eyeballing a green Certina DS Action with HAQ. Wish it was that price.

Lovely green.

I'm indifferent to Deep Blue, and divers in general. I like that green though. I'd wear it.
Nice pickup.
I like the bezel to dial ratio.

Good deal. What is that other time-knob for - locking the bezel?

That is the very useful and helium release valve knob that keeps my watch from damage as a result of my many deep diving forays.

Nothing wrong with liking a Deep Blue watch or Deep Blue in general. It's always shades of "whatever works for you." More than anything else, I just find the majority of their divers far too large (last time I gave their website a hard looksy, I remember pretty much everything being 46mm except maybe one or two models).

Regardless, green dials are always cool! Enjoy man.

Not a bad looking watch. I do like the green dial. There are some tempting Deep Blue models, but I wish they ran a little smaller in case size. Congrats, now put another coat of stain on the deck.

Deep Blue isn't bad, I have a couple 1000m's that were some of the first ones on Shop and they are durable. I was rough on them, but they held up well and still work great.
