Shield Dreyer Men's Diver Strap Watch

Shield Dreyer Men's Diver Strap Watch

Got one of these a while back. (For a couple bucks less, it seems to me.) Different color scheme: silver/black, not available this time round.

For what it is, I dig the watch. It is a bit heavy, which might turn some folks off. Just seems more “substantial” to me, and I do actually own heavier watches… but not many. It’s a quartz, and aficionados might turn up their noses on that basis. I do prefer mechanical myself. Sure, quartz watches are practical and more accurate. But there’s just something “soulless” about a watch that needs a battery. They aren’t bad. Just need to make up for that in some other way. I love a funky colored G-shock, for instance. That said, in a dive watch I can see it, and the weight of this one gives it a bit of character/gravitas.
