Scurfa Watches Diver One Stainless

$185 (based on current exchange rate) BUY NOW

Scurfa likely isn’t a watch brand you’ve heard of unless you’re a particular shade of watch geek, but they are another brand that’s always on our radar. Paul Scurfa’s line of affordable dive watches use reliable Swiss quartz movements from Ronda, and boast premium features — including a domed sapphire crystal, a lumed bezel, and a well-tested 300-meter dive rating.

Designed much like the underwater kit for GoPro cameras, the Heavy-Duty Box is built to take any kind of thrashing that diving or other water-based adventure sports can inflict on any given day.

Deep Blue NATO Diver 300 Automatic

$299 BUY NOW

Powered by a bulletproof Seiko NH36 automatic movement, this Deep Blue automatic watch is a great no-frills diver that’s built like a tank. Its overall design is loosely based on the classic Seiko SKX007, though it boasts bonus features like a sapphire crystal, a 300-meter dive rating, and a much more pronounced 44-millimeter case size. If your wrists can take the bigger case, this is a solid pick that’s still quite the bargain.

helson watch

Helson Brass Shark Diver 42

$349 BUY NOW

Of the many microbrands in the watch industry, Helson is one of the few that appears to be standing the test of time. Loaded with insanely bright SuperLuminova and a 500-meter depth rating, the Shark Diver is the brand’s chunky and well-executed take on the classic dive watch. This brass variant is the most affordable variant of the pack that uses Seiko’s NH35 automatic movement rather than the usual Miyota seen in other models. Helson has been pushing the boundaries of what they can get away with for dial colors as of late, and the Shark Diver can now be acquired with semi-precious stone dials like mother-of-pearl and jade.
