2.0 out of 5 stars Not really a true diver watch - but looks nice, December 3, 2013

This review is from: Vestal Men's ZR4003 ZR-4 Stainless Steel and Silicone Matte Black Diving Watch (Watch)
Overall a nice watch and does have some features which a "true" diver would appreciate. There is a screw down crown which (hopefully) makes it water tight. And it does have the heft of a divers watch. However, the downside is the band which barely manages to fit around my wrist. If I were wearing a wetsuit - this watch would not fit around my wrist and the silicone band could not take the physical abuse which is a part and parcel of scuba diving. The last bit is the dial mechanism - it's placed at the inner portion of the wrist vs. out. If you are moving your wrist a lot this part would be subject to more bumps. Recessing it would be better.

At the end of the day - bought it on Amazon's Black Friday deal and it was reasonably priced for a distinctive/heavy watch for just wearing about...on land.

p.s. after wearing this watch a month...it does have some drawbacks. The heaviness gets to you after a while. Sometimes the sheer weight makes me think it's made out of depleted Plutonium because it's really got mass to it. So much so that wrist was starting to get a funny twinge. And I am no lightweight guy as I lift weights. After I stopped wearing it for a week the twinge went away. Plus, the large form factor gets in the way when you are sifting through backpacks, briefcases, wearing a long-sleeve dress shirt. I think I will reserve this watch for those days where I need a costume watch. For everyday watches I will wear a Nixon, Sport Tag Heuer, Timex or other.
