Well, I do occasional diving with my Orient Mako, Seiko SKX009 and with a couple of Citizen recent acquisitions. While these might be mighty watches out of the water, they are useless to me when diving. I think that the reason is that I do not wear my glasses and even if they are good, to me it is as if they were in braille...

Seems to me if you can't see well underwater, then why bother? I dive with contact lenses and no problem. Sure, dive computers may have made the standard dive watch redundant but redundancy is often the name of the game when scuba diving. Presume you have no problem reading your depth & pressure gauges?

Well, this was a bit of a joke post but for real, sometimes I think the faces are too small and the indeces are to small too. Convex glasses are ok but not all have them and they shine back too much. Quite possibly, and I might get a lot of people angry, they just mignt not be too valuable for the true divers, for us casuals....well yes... but over Margaritas on the dock bar.
Man...as my HS girlfriends used to say... that is a big one!!!
You may have noticed that Invicta is not generally known for smaller watches. (Wonder if the founder was nearsighted. )

I'm blind as a bat without my glasses. The answer? Perscriptiom lens in your mask. They are not to pricy & make reading your watch doddle. I'm with Russ. I would never dive without a watch & the ones you list are perfect :-)
