Battle of the Uber Military Diver’s Watches

Post by koimaster » January 30th 2021, 7:57pm

Introduction

Watch collecting has been popularised as a hobby for many years and this trend has prompted watchmakers to release a wide array of collections that saturate the watch industry. This calls for a thorough examination of the features that go into these timepieces. From unconventional designs to revolutionary themes, there is always something about each collection that caters to the preference of collectors from all walks of life, prompting them to satisfy their watch hunting instincts with an exquisite addition to their collection. Whilst surveying the various collections that watch enthusiasts gather, I came to an interesting revelation that there seems to be one universal dive watch with specific qualities and ethos that is included in almost every collection.

“A dive watch projects, in its broad-shouldered rejection of the unnecessary, the same trustworthy, here-to-get-work done vibe as rolled-up sleeves, a loosened tie, and a (navy blue) jacket thrown over the back of a conference room chair with a devil-may-care disregard of wrinkles.” - Jack Forster, Hodinkee 2019

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

Of all the watches the displayed in the blog, the guy/gal picks Squale & Steinhart as his/her "Uber". :lol:

In all fairness, at least the author isn't trying to sell these particular two brands..
