Well....truth be told, I tried one last year....standard black diver sub homage

Amazing? No, but if you compare it to lets say an Alpha homage, the cost is much less. Pretty sure it's a brass case, unknown movement, but the power reserve lasts a few days and it was fairly accurate.
Cons were a loose bezel and difficult to open screw down crown.....in addition to the goofy ass wording on the dial. I paid 24 buck with free shipping from the Bay.

Add another 24 bucks and get the Casio Duro diver.....quartz but the quality is superior

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way
