Seiko PADI Solar SNE499

A Seiko model under $250 is reminiscent of the most famed dive watch known as the Golden Tuna. And the reasons for it are as follows. The power reserve is around 10 months, which is already a good start for a watch of this price. The one-way rotating bezel is the next great thing that has happened to this watch. Then, the screw-down crown and case display the security needed for a diver who prefers going deep down the ocean. The bulkiness is absent – its rather sleek design tops it up with a feature no one can resist when looking for a lightweight dive watch that does not lack in the set of basic functionalities.

This special edition piece might just be your cup of tea if the aforementioned points are of interest to you.
