It”s been a year and a half since we reviewed the Vintage from the folks at Molarity Watch Group (seen here), which I concluded was a little bit of a mixed bag (dug the styling, but it had some faults). Well, in those intervening months, new models have been released, and today we”ll be…

These days, there is no shortage of dive watches being produced by smaller companies. As such, its become more difficult (at least, it seems to me it would be) for a brand to differentiate themselves, and their products. Today’s example from Armida definitely seems up to the task.
Today, we’ll have a look at a new diver from a fairly new brand out of Thailand, Maranez. It wasn’t until recently that I had even heard of the brand, and once I saw some information, I contacted them, and they were kind enough to send over this review sample.
For those who spend any amount of time on the various watch review sites or forums, the Cave Dweller will be a familiar sight. If you’ve somehow missed seeing this watch, read on to see what gives the watch such a great reputation.
Somehow or another, I didn’t become aware of the folks over at West Coast Time until just recently – but am I glad that I did. They’ve got quite an interesting diver on offer that we’ll be covering today.
