I'm biased as I've got a Citizen, but have a look on the Citizen website. They have some stunning looking pro diver watches 200-300m WR. Some have depth gauges & most are ecodrive - so no battery changes. Once you spot one, hunt around as the prices on the website can usually be bettered without too many problems. Personal favourite is the one with blue markers, but naturally it's the most expensive at £400+ which is a bit rich for me at present even if I could find it a bit cheaper!

If you want an auto, Seiko have a lot more models to choose from. The cheaper models (SKX031/3 or SKX007/9) are excellent value for money, and will give years of reliable service. Nothing wrong with Citizen autos, but the choice of styles and price points is much smaller.
For quartz, I'd go with Citizen. Their eco-drive system is a more elegant solution to the battery-changing problem that Seiko's kinetic.
Neither company makes a bad watch, so go for the style you prefer.

My Kinetic diver spent every day on my wrist for ten years before I started collecting watches and put it into rotation with the others.
It has survived road accidents, the sea, international plane travel, baking California heat, and temperatures of minus twenty degrees Celsius in Poland ...all without any problems.

Less popular, less bidding wars on the evilbay if yer lookin' there, great watches at good prices
Either way you choose you'll be sure of a good watch, or just buy one of each

After that, Seiko FTW in automatic movements. Citizen for their quartz Eco-Drives like other people said (Zilas, Orcas, etc)
BTW, I think I'll be having a NY0054 black-dialled arriving in a few hours!!
I'll be p***ed if the postie is going to make me wait until Monday!!
