Speedbump,
I've had my Tag down to 125' while SCUBA diving with no problem.

I have a Breitling watch and I love it. I wear it all the time and have had it for about five years with no trouble. It's a beautiful looking watch but a little pricey, about $ 4,500.

Check out the Citizen Eco Drive models. Especially the dive watches. It charges the battery by light hitting the face.

Omega Seamaster. Very tough. Made for a marine environment. Good to 300 meters. Save the Rolex for land use...

Omega Seamaster Professional Chrono. Great tough watch. Just under $3K. If you don't get the chrono you can save a grand. 300 meters. I've had mine for 4 years and I love it.

Wow Thanks for the recommendations guys! I guess I'll go watch shopping this week (b-day is the 12th).

However, no offense...if I had $4,000 I'd get a couple of enhancements and not a watch

Thanks again! Off to shop...ugh not my favorite thing to do

Kirch and Seanclong...you know what's up!!..you'll pull the skin right off you arm before u bust the band or scratch the face. i don't like to have to remove my watch to wrench...can't tell ya how many good watches i've had...this by far is the plainest but most functional one i have owned. check out the locking system on it...

Get that free watch that comes with the Mag. Subscription

I would go with the Rolex or Tag. Rolex has the best crystal. If it ever gets scratched they will replace it free of charge
