Summary: My primary consideration was to find an affordable watch that I could read in darkness, anywhere, without glasses, and never have to worry about "charging" luminous paint that quickly fades. Tritium tubes are really the only alternative. Luminox struck me as gimmicky. At the higher end, Ball Aviator Dual Time or Spacemaster Glow do an amazing job (small tubes at each minute mark), but they're very expensive and bulky.
Summary: I have owned and still have Rolex GMT Masters and Submariners, Oris TT1 Divers and an Omega Seamaster Pro, so I'm used to high end time pieces and therefore was a little skeptical about purchasing this watch, as it didn't have a saphire crystal or screw down crown. BUT...it is a really awesome piece for the price! I wanted a watch with Tritium but never really liked the Luminox style and didn't want to spend another 2K on a Ball level auto..
Summary: I recently bought this watch to use as a daily, tough, beat on, all around watch to throw into the mix with my Breitling Heritage SuperOcean 46mm. As I find myself occasionally knocking it into things when I'm on the job, and would prefer to beat on something not quite as nice of a timepiece. So far, I'm impressed with it overall. The build quality seems great, it's very light, appears extremely tough, and the tritium tube lume is clear and moderately bright.
Summary: I love this watch. I have a small wrist, so I was afraid it would look too large, but it doesn't. It's accurate, light-weight, and really looks great. Although the included watchband was fine, I teamed the watch with the Hadley-Roma Black and Red Silicone Diver WatchStrap (MSM944RQ-220 22mm), and the watch and the strap look really great together (and I trimmed the band down to fit my wrist) -- perfect combination.
Summary: I had a Tru-Glo watch that I bought online for $50.00, great price and exposed me to the Tritium type watch. I had it for less than a month and it started leaking when I took a shower (I now know that it's not very good for the watch to be worn in the shower or Jacuzzi) not just leaking but filled with water. I really liked the Tritium feature so I looked on line for an alternative.
Summary: I had purchased a Tru-Glo watch on line and after 1 month I had to send it back, it leaked really bad. I looked at every Tritium watch that I could find on line and for the money I think this is the best deal out there right now. I tend to think that this is a really good find right now, for $300.00 (or less) you can have a lightweight, Tritium, adjustable bezel, good looking watch that will probably go up in price as it becomes more well known.
Summary: This watch is well worth the money... Ive had this watch for a couple months now it keeps time very well and is very durable despite how light it is.. The lens isnt scratched yet which is impressive and with my job im always coming in contact with diesel gas oil and solvents etc and the watch is fine... Its a nice watch.
Summary: I bought this watch having reviewed it carefully against better know brands ( which I own) like Luminox and Traser and it beats them hands down on features and value in that narrow but overcrowded category - the four o clock positioned crown is a real-world good idea. I was disappointed with the fabric strap , but was delighted when the company contacted me, noticing my upset on Amazon and offered to replace the band with a leather or rubber alternative.
Summary: Really nice watch! I love the design and look. It is very light so it is not uncomfortable to wear for extended periods of time. The tritium is awesome. Not as bright as I expected it to be but in deep darkness it is very bright. Keeps time very well. It was less than 3 seconds off after 60 days. The band is the only thing I had any issue with. It was tough but had a thin feel to it. After it was broken in it was very flimsy but it seemed to be holding up well.
Summary: The O.E. Diver is a serious looking piece of hardware with the H3 tritium illumination system. This means that the watch stays legible even in complete darkness without having to "charge" the illumination. You can see that this isn't just a pretty desk diver, it's a tool meant to be used and abused. General observations: This is a BIG watch! With a diameter of 46mm, there's no denying the fact that it's bigger than most normal sized sport watches.
