Ocean Crwler is a brand we just discovered at NWC mag and we have to say their line up of watches is impressive, there’s even an 18K gold bezel dive watch for $5000 in there. But regular dive watch fans know that what matters is the movement, the lume, the depth testing and the build quality of the watch.

Quartz movement helps keep costs … Continue reading La Touraine Divers: 200m Ability, Sharp Styling, Affordable Too

Here’s the … Continue reading Doxa Army Will Inspire a Legion of AliExpress Homages
