Seiko Diver Deals
These watches are 23 jewel automatic movements. The crystals are “Hardlex” mineral which is harder than most other brands and Seiko uses a better than average luminous material on the hands and markings. The cases, bezels and safety clasp bracelets and screw-down backs (except SKZ281 which has rubber strap) are stainless.
These particularly excellent watches are posted because they are being offered online for exceptionally good prices. If you have been wondering what to stuff into that guy’s xmas stocking, take this tip – he’ll be happy with one of these!

Orient Diver Deal
Orient has developed a strong reputation over the years because of it’s high quality build, fit and finish and because, unlike a lot of the smaller watch companies, they manufacture their own movements.

Shown here, in blue/blue, is the CEM65005D which features mineral crystal, rubber strap, stainless case parts, screw-down crown, generous lume on hands and hour markings and a bi-directional rotating bezel.
It is water resistant to a depth of 660 feet. The movement is a 21 jewel automatic and includes both day and date in the movement. Interestingly, it has a separate pusher to advance the day. It is a lot of watch for under $100. The Mako series includes orange, yellow, black and two-tone colorways and is also available (for and extra $25) with stainless safety-clasp bracelets.
