The Steelfish. 44mm, 2000m and a hunk of SS. Double AR so it looks like there is no crystal there at times. Brushed rather than polished as well so less bling.

And the lume is amazing

Decided to get some bling in my life :? :shock:
So, new to me, SeaPro, yellow dial on black PVD case and bracelet.
Miyota movement.
I understand downmarket version of Oceanaut.
Not sure if you'd class this as a 'named brand ' or just a fashion accessory.
If anyone can tell me more details it'd be welcome.

<edit>
Interwebnet tells me model is the 'Black Mamba' with Miyota 8215 movement 21 jewel.

If directed at me then I've never heard of it/him. I'm assuming some sort of shopping channel? :?

I can't see any problem with the movement and the finish of the watch is ok.
As an everyday watch it fits the job.
This is the non-CW of the Day section after all.

Am I the victim of watch snobbery?
If so didn't realise.
Should I only post pics of expensive watches or only 'Swiss Made' then?

I think Ian has some Seapro / Oceanut watches too (surprise, surprise!). Perfectly fine as entry level Swiss watches, I believe.

I do - 3 Oceanauts. Oceanauat is the main company and have some very good Swiss Made watches which I would rate slightly above CWL - especially the bracelets. And 3 Seapros. 1 is Swiss quartz but the other two are SX Divers which are straight Sub homages using Miyota movements. The Seapro range is a cheaper brand for the same company so they can do a cheaper Chinese made watch but with Japanese movements.

I would not class them as a fashion brand but they sometimes get a bit of stick as they are sold on TV by the Watch Commander. They watches themselves are well made and my SX Diver was my first auto and a few people complimented me on it and one person even mistook it for a Rolex. If I get around to it I might do a gallery shot with all of them.

Strela on new custom fitted bracelet, at least for a few hours. Very very comfortable to wear.
