The MDV106-1AV is handsome for a diver, and it’s absolutely as capable as its deep-water aesthetic suggests. I had to do a double-take on it, actually, as I’d have no idea this wasn’t a $200+ watch if I hadn’t bought it myself on Amazon and paid $45 for it.

The Audaz Scuba Master, a sub-$400 dive watch with a Seiko automatic inside, is a gigantic piece that’s built like a tank and rated to travel with you into the depths. This is a satisfying diver from an up and coming microbrand- check it out!Read More
