  1. Dive Watch Myths.

    I often wondered seeing watches stating 300m (e.g. Orient Saturation Diver) would anyone ever use them at that depth? Apparently it appears not I think most of us land dwellers buy Divers because of their chunky looks, ease of reading and generally strong lume...

    Creationwatches are trustworthy and use DHL which is quick, As I said, you may get stung for customs charges. I bought mine on eBay for about £169 Dutyfreeisland was even cheaper at £124 but out of stock
  4. Orient Mako XL V2

    It's definitely very well made but it is a big watch to be sure. It was quite hard to find although CreationWatches sell it for £141 (although you may or may not get hit with import taxes)

  6. Orient Mako XL V2

    Orient Diver Sporty Automatic FAC09003B0 Men's Watch This arrived a few days ago and it's a very nice looking Divers watch. I particularily like the blend of Rose Gold for the Chapter ring, hands and lume buckets with polished Stainless steel case. The bezel is black with a glass coating giving it a polished look (I'm not sure how robust this will be though) It is a large watch measuring 46mm across the bezel with 24mm lug centres. Lume is good (not quite as good as Seiko's but retains it's glow well and is easily read in the early hours) The quality of the watch is excellent, it's solidly made and well finished. I would definately recommend this watch to others. Cost me £169 inc Features: Stainless Steel Case Silicon Strap Automatic Movement Caliber: F6724 Mineral Crystal Black Dial Luminous Hands And Markers Unidirectional Rotating Bezel Date Display Screw Down Crown Solid Case Back Buckle Clasp 200M Water Resistance Approximate Case Diameter: 46mm Approximate Case Thickness: 13mm

  15. Any opinions on the Tissot Powermatic 80 ?

    Shameless plug, but i do have for sale in the classifieds, a Powermatic 80 le locle bought from CreationWatches (only a few months ago). It certainly seems to run for 3+ days as stated due to modified main spring and bear rate
