Your assignment, if you choose to accept it, is to pick 10 Iconic Dive watches. Then 10 Legendary ones. This has to be done out of the list above. You can chose the same watch for both lists. Than explain why you picked the watches for each list.

The second part of your assignment is to pick your top 10 list even if the watch is not in the original list and why.

Good luck Phelps.... and company.

Would I be amiss in saying the Seiko SKX007 should be on that list too?

It pains me to see what Zenith did to the Defy. Nice to see the Vulcain on that list :-)

The Citizen Promaster Aqualand gets a mention, deservedly so. During the 90's they had to be one of the most popular dive watches out there. G shock should be on there too.
