I think £390 for a quartz dive watch is a little steep for most people to vote hot on tbh. At this price, you could get a lovely Hamilton or Tissot automatic with a quality ETA movement that you wouldn't have to fork out every two years for a battery and have resealed & pressure tested. If you actually use it in water (which 90% won't) then installing the battery yourself on the cheap isn't possible.

If you really have to get a dive watch then I could recommend a Seiko or Orient at less than half this price. Either of these brands will both look better and perform better in water.

Not voted this cold BTW, since it is a nice-looking and no doubt quality watch & good saving from list price, but really no man should wear a dive watch from a brand that makes shoes & handbags!

He means that it's a fashion watch not a true diver's watch. You want a true diver's watch buy Seiko SKA371 with Prospex accreditation. It's rigid, elegant and even a watch snob will turn his head around when you wear it. Here, you pay for the Gucci brand, which is not a bad thing in my opinion but you don't get quality watch in this situation. For £400 you can get a vintage Omega off eBay or used a Tag Heuer. Mentioned by me Seiko can be bought new for £299 or even less on Amazon.

Good price for a nice watch! Heat added

Never a good thing when fashion brands place their name on a watch face. A good honest Seiko or Citizen makes more sense in this price range.

Personally I am the aforementioned 'watch snob', I wouldn't snigger at someone who purchased a Seiko or Citizen, or even a cheapie Sekonda or something - they are what they are and are priced correctly. This however is a £40 watch with £350 of branding printed onto it, it's a joke.

Similar can be found from Hugo Boss, Armani etc., even Ben Sherman have a dabble!

People are taking this whole 'diver' word a bit too seriously - there are millions of 'diver' watches out there, but you won't find 99% of them in a dive shop. The term 'diver' watch wise is more of a style than meaning it's an actual divers watch.
Maybe a watch a diver would wear when on land

​Vintage Omega for £400? You might want to take another look at that!

You'll get a Geneve for £200 and a cool Geneve Dynamic Bullseye from upwards of £400. Speed/sea masters can start from about £350.

^ this. Recently, there was Omega Geneve 1980 with certificates and box for £300. I'm not talking about used watches. I talk about vintage not-restorated watches that will always be classics. There are plenty of fake ones as well but it's easy to spot them if you know what are you looking for.

​With quartz movement, no box or certificate. Yeah, proper vintage.

True but then you can have an actual diver watch for less :P

For £200 I wouldn't expect either and they would be from '70s so quite old and only worth £200-400. Some Geneve might be quartz, but most from that era are manual or auto.

Unless you are buying one of the higher end Omegas or perhaps a Tudor or Rolex then most watches from this time won't have paperwork.

Most copies are usually so terrible they are immediately obvious and they are mostly sea masters and speed masters. There aren't many knock off versions of the lesser known (and IMO better looking) models like the Geneve Dynamic.

There are many reputable watch sellers on eBay who exclusively sell watches and their business is build on their rep. Just be adult about it and don't buy any frankenwatches from India or dodgy sellers.

​I only buy new watches. I think to put a Gucci watch in the same category as Armani, Hugo Boss and especially Ben Sherman is very naive.

It's not naive. You get a rubbish movement inside. Additionally, this Gucci is a quartz so you are bashing a vintage Omega for being a quartz but don't mind paying for a new Gucci quartz. Also, there ain't no difference between Gucci, Armani or Hugo Boss watches - only the name differs. This watch is just a waste.

Maybe or maybe not, your money your choice. I would rather buy a watch from a company that makes watches. I picked up a Seiko sportura gmt kinetic with sapphire crystal that was posted on here for £135, now that was a good deal

It is quite a heavy watch but I like this feeling. When something is a bit heftier it screams quality for me but it's probably only me haha. Are you a watch collector? I am just starting. Own a Casio G-shock for sport, got a Daniel Wellington for formal (I know that I have paid too much for what it is) and now got the Seiko.

​Not at all. Armarni, Hugo Boss ect are all basically fossil watches, made in the same factory. Gucci watches are italian and made by the brand themselves. They've been making watches for a long time.
