Ocean 7 LM-8 Professional Deep Diver, Hands On

March 31, 2014 . by Matt Himmelstein

Ocean 7 was nice enough to ship out their LM-8 Professional Deep Diver watch for a review, and I was able to spend a few days with it. The first thing you notice when you take it out of the box is that this watch is substantial, which is to be expected for a watch rated to 2,000 meters. OK, it is more than substantial, it is heavy. And big. There is a possibility that I have held heavier wrist watches (I am sure there are some beasts out there that I have not seen as well), but if I have, it was not by much. The stainless bracelet that comes with the watch is also substantial, requiring the removal of three links to make it wearable for me. Thankfully, the bracelet uses screw in pins, not push pins, so removal is easily and safely done with a small screwdriver. I really appreciated this touch. Once on, the weight is not really that noticeable in every day wear, you know it is there, but it is not a big deal. Now, I wouldn’t take this out on the golf course, there I think the weight would mess up my swing (and it does not need to be messed up any more than it is), but it isn’t weighing down my arm down or causing any fatigue.

  If you’ve read my earlier reviews of the Ocean7 LM-5 models (here and here), you’re aware that I’m a fan of this particular line, due, in large part, to the lumed sapphire bezel that is installed.  This latest model, the LM-5CQ, introduces

It’s been awhile since we took a trip into the Ocean7 catalog (you can see our other reviews here), and today, we’re revisiting one of my favorite models that’s had a very nice update done to it.

REVIEW: AirNautic AN-24M 24-Hour Watch (Part 2)

August 15, 2012 . by Patrick Kansa

  Yesterday, we started to take a look at the AirNautic AN-24M (from Ocean7), covering some of the design inspiration for the watch, and why it’s split out from the main Ocean7 line (or, at least, my take on it).  Today, we’ll get into the details of this 24-hour watch.
