My Watch Collection Rules: How I Classify My Collection – Best Diver by Each Brand (Part 4)

In Part 1[1] of a series of articles regarding watch collection rules, I mentioned the importance of following your own set of rules for this hobby. The first that I follow is to categorize my collection to movement types. In Part 2[2], I mentioned about category types. In Part 3[3] I follow material types.

In this fourth installment of the series, I explained about acquiring the best diver watch each brand can produce.

Omega Seamaster PloProf 1200 M Omega Co-Axial 55 x 48 mm Steel on Rubber Strap Reference - Its true KPI is how well it continues ticking after being abused, A Review

A watch brand's ultimate professional diving watch. This is one sub-category of my collection philosophy that I have tried to keep with some degree of success.

Since my acquisition of the Rolex Deepsea Sea-Dweller, I have slowly assembled a collection of the best diving watches a brand could create by a few respective watch brands. As at today, I have in my collection the following brand/highest specification dive watch:
  1. Rolex/Deepsea Sea-Dweller
  2. Deep Blue/Depthmaster 
  3. Ocean7/LM-8
  4. Bell & Ross/BR02-92 
  5. Victorinox/Dive Master Black Ice
  6. Orient/Pro Saturation Diver 
  7. Citizen/Promaster Autozilla
  8. Seiko/Marinemaster Emperor Tuna
Before the close of 2014, I was able to add on to that list. This time, a 'grail' watch from Omega - The Seamaster PloProf. The story how I got the watch is interesting.
