DEEP BLUE PRO SEA DIVER 1000M AUTOMATIC
My friend Stan over at Deep Blue always offers a lot of watch for the money , and this Pro Diver is another great example of Deep Blue ’ s value argument . Solid steel and sapphire surround a Seiko automatic day / date NH 36 movement within . This big boy measures out at a robust 45mm and places a manual helium release valve at the 2 o ’ clock position just above the triple-gasketed screw-down crown . A heavy coat of lume where needed makes it easy to read , and as the name implies the watch is rated to 100atm , or 1,000 meters . A wide 24mm aperture between the lugs brings a sense of balance to this robust size and a micro-adjustable bracelet makes it easy to find just the right fit . Retail price is $ 599 , but a recent check on the Deep Blue site shows that you can currently buy this at $ 499 . Tell Stan that AboutTime sent you for another $ 50 off the retail price . www . deepbluewatches . com
