I'm looking for a Decent Quartz diver for work

Post by DANforty »

Hi all can anyone recommend a decent Quartz divers watch for my work, needs to be fairly robust as I work in construction something along the lines of a Seiko sbcm023 or does anyone know where I can buy a new one of those?

Sorry for the OT post, Dan, but it WAS funny!

Just looked at the Elliot brown range, very nice indeed I've never heard of them before.

The Elliot Brown and Scurfa are two good suggestions - my Diver One has become my everyday work watch (construction also) and although I don't have a Bloxworth I would favour the Scurfa for your purposes for the following reasons:

- The Diver One is smaller at 40mm so less likely to get a knock
- Scurfa has sapphire glass and ceramic bezel
-Scurfa is only £125 new so no great disaster if it comes to grief
- Scurfa has 10 year battery

And finally, the Bloxworth is way too beautiful to risk on a construction site!

Buy both and Wear the Bloxworth down the pub :D

If you want a more expensive/upscale quartz diver, I can recommend the Seiko Tuna. For your situation though, Scurfa seems a great fit.

You can't go wrong with Seiko really can you. If you google you will find a few suppliers that carry a bigger range than the high street. Citizen too, as suggested have great value divers.

Bulova do a large range of quartz divers. The UHF movements are pretty special.

They tend to be larger case sizes though.
