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.
Oh, and while we’re talking EveryDayCarry? If you submit your own pocket dump, be sure to let us know – once we get a good handful of readers submitted over there, we can do a roundup, and you can show your fellow WWR readers what it is you’re carrying. everydaycarry.com
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
