This month, we have your chance to win a watch from the most popular style of watches there seems to be – a dive watch. Something about that promise of rugged durability in the face of adventure, I suppose. Which also means that it will handle bumping into your desk and doorframe at the office, no?
As Jim’s review points out, this really is more of a desk diver than a true dive watch. While it does carry a rather nice WR rating (200m, which means you’re set for the pool this summer), the crystals are mineral (so not nearly as scratch resistant as you might hope) and the lume on the watch is, well, a bit less glowy than you and I might prefer.
Past that, Jim did find some issues with the 120-click unidirectional bezel, another cue that this is not for serious diving. As a more design-oriented piece, though – or a true “desk diver” – then the Spinnaker Spence SP-5039 really does seem to be up to the task, along with it’s Seiko movement trucking along inside the 42mm case.
To have a shot at winning your own Spinnaker Spence SP-5039, you’ve got a simple (and standard) two-step process:
- Comment below on what you think the ultimate “desk diver” watch would be, and why
- Head on over to the giveaway page
Our thanks to Spinnaker for sponsoring the giveaway; to our readers – good luck!
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.
