Summer is in full swing and people are flocking to the seaside to swim, and dive, and have fun. And some are still not sure what kind of diving watch should they choose before going underwater. In this small overview we at WorldWatchReview.com try to find an ideal ‘real’ diving tool for our readers covering both the “affordable” and “premium” categories of mechanical divers.
With its 42.5mm case machined out of 316L low-carbon stainless steel and a Rolex-like unidirectional rotating bezel, this quartz-powered 2009 Certina DS Action Chrono is available both on a sexy black rubber strap (ref. C013.417.27.057.00, pictured) and a more practical stainless steel bracelet (ref. C013.417.11.057.00.) As affordable as it is, this one looks like a good choice for those not willing to spend tons of money to buy a ‘real’ Submariner, but still not willing to opt-in for an “homage” from smaller brands of dubious origin.
