True, but just arriving back from Switzerland, I can tell you the selection of 100% legit watches from authorized dealers there is nothing shy of impressive. The prices are definetly high there though. Been looking for a IWC Aquatimer Chrono and the prices are definetly much higher in Switzerland. But just seeing stuff like a Ulysse Nardin Tourbillon displayed in a shop window makes me weak in the knees.

What... you're not getting the Deep One or Deep Two??? Love the Aquatimer series; one of the best dive watches IMO. Love the Blancpain dive watches also.

The Bahnhofstrasse in Zurich is just mind blowing for the watch lover. So are the prices.

I wear my Fliegerchronograph in the water all the time. Has the same screw down crown as Aquatimer. No screw down pushers, but I don't like screw down pushers for the timers. Makes it a hassle to use and I use the timers several times a week.

I don't go diving, but I would be nervous I would loose it deep in the water. I did go in the lake with my Zenith Defy Xtreme, but that was 5 feet of water. If the band broke I could pick it up with my foot!!!

I have a Breitling Windrider Chrono and have taken it snorkeling many times, but usually will take it off if going in deeper waters.

And Moses, you're right. The Bahnhofstrasse in Zurich is simply mind blowing.

Never thought about deep water situations. I'll think twice the next time, thanks.

I like dive watches for their durable nature. I am not one to take the watch off when working on the car and there's nicks all over my watch, but it's mine and my nicks, lol.

Until you want to sell it. I'd love to trade my Flieger for an Overseas Chrono . If I see a LNIB Overseas it may mitigate the wear on my watch a bit.
