The thing is an absolute beast and super comfortable. Keeping about +4-5 secs per day on my wrist. The lume still sucks but I am investigating some lume people in Canada.

Worn this one two days in a row. Amazing for me I replaced the black croc with a brown Teju lizard:

The Oceanaire never totally fit right for me. For whatever reason the Revue fits me perfectly and even though it is a tank it is super comfortable to wear.

During the day I love this watch. In the evening though I get ticked at this one (same for the Zodiac). Both divers have very poor lume. Jake is not coming back anytime soon but I e-mailed Noah to see if he is taking on any lume work.

The Revue was pushing +10-12 secs per day but post regulation from Archer it is running within C.O.S.C. specs.

I am deciding which divers will stay. I am evolving from a Seiko themed collection to a diver collection and then a complications collection (hence the Tourbillon, and triple retrograde Alpha).

I also want another dress watch or two. The Tudor handwind is so well made that I might like another Swiss dress watch to compliment the Grand Seiko.

I will say that the case, caseback, and crown on the Zodiac are really nicely done. If they made a $1500 Zodiac with the ETA 2892 I would be all over that!

is a normal progression from narrow focus to a wider appreciation of watches.
The Brazilian diver was the same, great watch but never really fit my wrist bone due to lug design- too flat and thus extended beyond the wristbone.
Like Poyman and others, I have slowly collected a few pieces from each watch category and like them for their differences but the diver look still lingers for me...hence the Omega Seamaster quartz versions I recently acquired...If push came to shove, I'd keep the diver styles! haa!
