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.

Since my acquisition of the Rolex Deepsea Sea-Dweller many moons ago, I have assembled a collection under this principle. As of today, I have the following under this category (Left to Right; Top to Bottom):
  1. Deep Blue/Depthmaster 
  2. Ocean7/LM-8
  3. Victorinox/Dive Master Black Ice
  4. Bell & Ross/BR02-92 
  5. Rado/Rado Original Diastar Diver
  6. Orient/Pro Saturation Diver
  7. Rolex/Deepsea Sea-Dweller
  8. Seiko/Marinemaster Emperor Tuna
  9. Citizen/Promaster Autozilla
  10. Omega/Seamaster PloProf 

Interesting facts to note about these watches.
  • Minimum depth rating is 300 meters. Maximum depth rating 3,900 meters;
  • Dive bezel - either external or internal;
  • Date window; 
  • Minimum face diameter 38.6 mm (without crown); 
  • Watches with clasp system comes with in-built divers' extension; and
  • Satisfies the international ISO6425 diving watch standard.
