As our own pages attest, dive watches are a ridiculously popular category of watches.  Sure, it is a matter of style preferences, but I think it also speaks to the fact that these watches are, by and large, very robust tools that can put up with a lot.  Our friends over at EveryDayCarry must see the same thing, because they just put together a guide for seven affordable dive watches, all under $200.

If for some reason there are folks who would not be up to speed on what makes up a dive watch, EveryDayCarry lists out the four criteria that set aside a dive watch – water resistance, the movement inside, build quality, and legibility.  Once they have the explanations down on those, they give you seven different options to consider, all under the $200 pricepoint, from $40 on up.

Even if you are familiar with the concept, roundups like these a good way to get an overview of a segment, and who knows – perhaps there’s an overlooked gem there you were not aware of and fits the bill for your next watch purchase.  You can check the full write up right here.
