I've been waiting for this for a long time. Now all I need is an Alfa Romeo and some dusty roads.

That Halios is easily the nicest dive watch at or about its price currently on the market. I've gone off divers lately but it ticks all the boxes for me. Lovely watch, Greg

That Heuer isn't bad either!

Edit - neither is the Sinn. I'm feeling like a pauper again :(

i think what's cool about the halios tropik is that, while it's a functional diver, it's a bit more elegant than most (and a lot more original than so much else that's out there).

I really do like this and a Sinn is currently at the top of my list. However I am worried that the U1 may be a bit too big for my skinny wrists. How does it wear ?

i suspect that since mine is rose gold, it won't see the briny depths, either.

Hi Andy,

my pics always make my watches look bigger than they are, but the U1 wears a lot smaller than you'd think for a 44mm watch. The lug to lug size is relatively small and the lugs are curved so it actually sits really comfortably.

I guess the only way to know is try one on – admittedly not easy with Sinn depending on where you live, but I think you'd be pleasantly surprised. If you're ever down London way we could arrange a meet to try it :thumbup:

Thanks for the info. and very kind offer. I generally only get down to 'that London' for the Rugby League - but much appreciated.
It's good to know that they wear smaller, I had been looking at the EZM 3 at 40mm but prefer yours. Further research has also led to the surprise that Jura's high street arm CW Sellors has a branch near me in Leeds and the website says it stocks Sinn. A rare trip into town will be on the cards - got to decide what to sell and start saving now.
