Save yourself the effort Lindsey. What was your favourite / default choice on your SKX?

That's your answer for the LBD.

I say splurge and get an Artem Sailcloth on deployant. Versatile and classy. 8)

@rkovars - that sounds like a good splurge to go for…. Though I notice that cheaper versions are available? :?

This. I think it meets the brief!? It’s a quartz which is no problem for me. So comfortable and it gives me three means of timing my pasta. 😂

Hardly a 'Little' watch, Des. :wink: :wink:

The buckle versions are good too. I went all in with the deployant. Another thing to consider especially given the cost of an Artem - is the C60 the 38 with 20mm lugs? Same as the AT right? The AT would look good on a sailcloth too :thumbup:

AT is 19mm :? Squishing down 20mm straps is definitely doable but maybe not with expensive ones :D

I’ve had a few black divers, my first posh watch was a black dial, black bezel Tag aquaracer.

I’ve since owned a couple of Zelos and a couple of Bremont all black diver watches but they’ve all gone. I therefore have no pictures to share of my little black dress, at least in the sense of dive watches and no one wants to see the other photos on a family friendly forum…….

An Artem would be really tight. If you are unsure go with the buckle version. They are really good too.

This, to my mind, is the ultimate little black CW. The C60 vintage PVD.
I came back for another look at this one Rich. On the black strap it just looks so cool! I almost think it takes it into a separate category of its own - Little Black/Black/Black Number. I certainly categorise it in my mind as more than ‘just’ a diver. This looks like the Special Ops version :lol:

The basic brief in my mind at least of a dive watch is one that can time your pasta without needing three subdials and a tachymeter scale to work it out :lol:

Easy work! You want to try getting al dente pasta on a Navitimer. 🤣

I was wondering if you set the bezel deliberately so that the minute markers are symmetrical across the bottom of the watch? One thing I like about my new LBD is the minute markers around the first fifteen minutes. I much prefer that little bit of asymmetry than the numbers all the way round on the 300s. :D
