Time and Tide have an office that is just around the corner from where I live, and last night they had an event to celebrate the launch of the Longines Legend Diver. So I went along.

"Longines Legend Diver"

The case is PVD steel and it comes on a rubber strap. Time and Tide (who're selling it) had it on one of their black NATOs, which was a good pairing. I think that the movement is a tweaked ETA.

It's a good looking watch. For people who read Hodinkee (and @Anesthetist ), there's a 36 mm version, but it's not available in black.

A few people had nice watches with them. Someone had an early 2000s Rolex GMT on a Jubilee bracelet.

"Rolex GMT"

A Glashutte with a spectacular green dial.

"Glashutte"

And one guy had a watch roll full of vintage pieces he'd sourced in Cuba.

"Vintage Collection"

Including this lovely Jaeger chronograph.

"Jaeger Chronograph"

I find it ironic that Glashutte would make an homage to a Timex

36mm would interest me indeed!

Those are the Four Seasons special ed GS: https://timelessluxwatches.com/reviews/new-grand-seiko-four-seasons-models/

This is the lovely Winter model:


And the Summer one:


Those are my favorite of the 4, but the other two are not bad either...

Hodinkee have a write up on the Blancpain Barakuda.

https://www.hodinkee.com/articles/blancpain-fifty-fathoms-barakuda-introducing

There are comments about it being sold out, but I heard the same thing about the Bathyscaphe Seventies, and there's one of those in a local jeweler's.

...but even if you do, if you log the GPS coordinates and scour the area, being at least the equal of a Submariner, it should be fine even after 14 months undersea.
Think it, be it.

@Finn666 looks like the waiting list wasn't too bad. I've got a suspicion that times quoted are exaggerated, except for the Daytona and GMT...

The Sea Dweller looks good. Doesn't seem too big for your wrist, and is a less obvious choice than the Submariner.
