Top 5 Micro Brand Dive Watches You Can Actually Buy Right Now
Over the past few months, I have been lucky enough to review four Helm dive watch models on my channel. While impressed with Helm watches, the downside is they are not immediately available for purchase and require joining a waiting list, some waitlists being massive. In light of this, I decided to look back through all the micro brand divers I’ve reviewed over the past few years, selecting my top five watches.
Number 5: Phoebus Eagle Ray
Unfortunately, this watch has sold out for European customers. However, this compressor-style dive watch is a reasonable value for money at $360 USD and has a 200-meter water resistance, sapphire crystal, double-domed blue AR coating, and an internal rotating bezel.
Number 4: Wize & Ope Hitman
The Wize & Ope Hitman is a fantastic all-round dive watch with a flat sapphire crystal, ceramic bezel insert, and blue bgw9. With a water resistance of 200 meters and a thickness of only 12.3 millimeters, it is one of the flattest watches featured in this article.
Number 3: RLG Odyssey Diver
The RLG Odyssey Diver is one of the more expensive watches on this list, featuring the Miyota 9039 automatic movement. This dive watch has a classy brushed and polished stainless steel bracelet, sapphire crystal bezel insert, and 200 meters of water resistance.
Number 2: Hootman Pilbara
The Hootman Pilbara, featuring the Miyota 9039 automatic movement, is an incredible dive watch with a frosted ceramic bezel insert and blue bgw9. With a water resistance of 200 meters and a thickness of 11.8 millimeters, it is a little bit heavier than the previous watch.
Number 1: Forestella Cambrian
At only $219 USD, the Forestella Cambrian is one of the very best value for money watches on this list. With a flat sapphire crystal, 300-meter water resistance, and powered by the NH35, this dive watch is close to perfect.
In conclusion, these five micro brand dive watches offer impressive features and designs, making them great options for any dive watch enthusiast.
