Divers watches for men, lets do some reviews!

Divers watches

If you are looking for a good quality and cool-looking diver watch, but you can’t afford a Rolex, what should you get? There are a few options out there, that you can get. I will review some of my favorite Divers Watches here. (All pictures are links, and all links will take you to Amazon.com)

What is a dive watch?

You can usually see what a dive watch is by the bezel. The Bezel, is a ring with minute markings on, that you can turn. It is usually marked 0-10-20etc in big number so its easier to see underwater. A diver watch should be waterproof, and have big numbers or minute marks, so it is easier to see underwater. Many dive watches today of the cheaper kind don’t really function like a dive watch, it just looks like one. It is one of the most popular styles of watches out there, so you don’t need to dive to use a dive watch.

Some of them can look very fancy, so fancy you can easily use them with a business suit, And some are much more casual looking, so you can find one that matches your personal style.

Seiko Men’s SKX175 Stainless Steel Automatic Dive Watch

Divers watches

This is a Seiko Swiss automatic dive watch. Seiko has gotten a great reputation for making quality watches.

I do love the color on this, it can be used with many different bands, if you would like to change that out. The crown is at the 4 o’clock mark so it does not dig into your wrist, this makes it feel more comfortable to wear. It is water-resistant to 200meters or 660feet. This watch feels solid and well put together, but the band, not so much, it feels very cheap. The bezel turns easy and clicks perfectly into place. And it is easy to see the day/date window. This watch is perfect for everyday use and can go with almost every level of formality.

I do like to look at comments from other people that bought this watch, And there are a few bad ones, and a lot more good ones, I believe the ones that left a bad comment was just unlucky, and one guy even got a model that was used and made in 1996. But that was the store’s fault, and they do give you a refund if you are not happy.

Watch Information

The case diameter is 41 millimeters and the case thickness is 13 millimeters, it is made from stainless steel. and it is a 2013 model.


NEYMAR 44mm Men’s 1000m Diver Japanese Automatic Sport Stainless Steel Watch

This is a Neymar Japanese automatic dive watch. And it is beautiful, and you can choose between 7 different colors.

1 Green face, black bezel, silver band.

2 Black face, black bezel, black band.

3 Black face, black bezel, silver band.

4 Black/gold face, black/gold bezel, silver/gold band.

5 Black/rose gold face, black/rose gold bezel, silver/rose gold band.

6 Blue/gold face, black/gold bezel, silver/gold band.

7 Blue face, black bezel, silver band. (this is the one in the picture)

Shenzhen Bo Lin watch company is a company in china and they have for many years manufactured watches for many different brands, in 1995 they decided to make their own brand, Neymar. And they have proven to be very good quality overall.

This was is a little big but it fits nicely on the wrist, and it is pretty heavy. It feels very well put together and has a water-resistance to 1000 meters or 3300 feet. It has a pretty good lume so you can see it in the dark.

Most comments from other costumers say it is a great buy for the price, and most of them are very happy with it. The few bad comments were about someone with bad luck, and if you try to contact the company to get it fixed or something, they are not very helpful. And a diver that used it a lot to dive said it started to take in water after 2 weeks, and we can not trust 1000 meters as advertised. If you don’t dive, then this is no problem. But if you are unlucky, Amazon has a 2-year warranty. Chances are that you will be just as happy as the majority of costumers.

Watch Information

The case diameter is 44 millimeter and the case thickness is 16,5 millimeters, it is made from stainless steel. it is a 2017 model.


Soooo…

That’s all for now, I really love these two watches, and I think you will love them too. As far as quality goes they are both high quality for this price range, the inside of the Neymar is actually from a Seiko, I would not go diving with any of them, but I would go for a swim with them. They are very good looking and much cheaper than a Rolex.

I have also made a review on 2 Dive watches you can actually dive with. Click Here if you want to see it.

I welcome criticism, that makes me better. I also love to hear from you if you are happy with the info I provided, so please leave a comment. Have a nice day! And thanks for reading.

  1. Hi. Thank you for the review; you made my decision easier. I will buy Neymar watch for my boyfriend. I am glad I found your post. Have a nice day. Katja

  2. Love the reviews you covered a lot of concerns a watch buyer might have. Seems like you were reviewing cheaper diving watches but ended up suggesting that diving with them wasn’t really an option. Maybe include a watch that could handle diving for the entire life of the watch and forget the price tag so people could feel comfortable buying a watch without worrying it wont function as advertised. Just a though, overall, great reviews i look forward to reading more of your posts!

  3. Hi, just looking at the mens dive watches – thanks for the detailed reviews above – I don’t need anything for extreme depth as my husband is more of a free diver these days but would appreciate reviews on some of the polymer cased dive watches – thankyou Chrissie

    1. Yes i realized my mistake here, both dive watches is not very good for diving πŸ˜› i will make another review with only fully functional dive watches next πŸ™‚

  4. These watches are amazing! I love men’s watches; they don’t look good on me, but they are sexy and snazzy on men. Those watches don’t look as tough as they are. Either of them would make a fantastic gift! Thank you for reviewing them. πŸ˜€

  5. Hi

    Thanks for the information.

    I didn’t really know what to look for in a dive watch, so you’ve saved me some time digging around in the internet.

    I had no idea that some dive watches are no good for actual diving!

    It’s good to know about Amazons guarantee – these watches are too much money to just waste if they are only going to last a few weeks!

  6. I had one diving watch, I think it was the Marina brand as I recall. It had Swiss design and inside parts while the outside was built from stainless steel and it was obviously highly waterproof.
    I will check the Seiko offer after reading your article.

    Thank you.

  7. Hello there, my boyfriend is a diver and he has a dive watch which hr complains about alot of how the watch isn’t good for diving and it makes me wonder how a dive watch can’t be good for diving. Finally I get a confirmation on how it can be possible. Lately he haven’t been going with his watch an I intend buying a good one for him. I’ll check these suggestions on amazon and try purchasing one. Thanks for sharing.

    1. if he will actually dive with it, I would recommend one of 2 I have linked in my Part 2 of dive watches, both of them are certified for diving. or a dive computer

  8. Hi Simon,

    I really like the look of the Neymar. It is not a brand that I am familiar with, but it looks great. I would wear this with a suit rather than a wetsuit, as I am not a diver, but I like the style of it. I take it that it just uses a standard watch battery and not a fancy kinetic movement?

  9. Hello Simon, I must say that this article is very helpful and informative. I am not a diver but I must get one of these watches, they look so powerful and I like its design. Seiko Men’s looks more attractive to me so I think I will opt for that one, it is not expensive at all compared to its features which is great.

  10. This a very interesting article and a very useful one too, it’s true that to get a very good quality diver watch at a cheap price is rather impossible because as we know in business that quality trades expensiveness. I really like your suggestions,they are beautiful and will be of great help to divers, I don’t dive but I have a couple of friends who do so I’ll share this article to them. Getting quality at a lesser prices is really nice, I like the specs of those watches, i might end up getting one fory friend for his birthday. Thanks for the help.

  11. Wow, you’ve really got nice watches here, I’ve been a  lover of watch for a long time now and it’s been a compulsory part of me so I like to get watches that suits different occasions and activities like hunting, hiking and so on. Just recently, I thought of going diving with some of my colleagues in my former office, so I guess a diving watch will do. I’ll see if I can get one and as well recommend it to some of them before the time. Thanks
