    I buy and sell watches as part of my estate jewelery business. I own Rolexes, Omegas, Pateks etc...

    I dive with a Citizen.

    I think to be DIR compliant, there should be only one stone at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock.

    This is probably the wisest piece of advice I've read in the thread. There's probably a number of us in the forum that deal / collect nice watches and I'm pretty sure we all take Citizens , Seikos and Shearwaters underwater.

    Most-Expensive-Dive-Watch-Ever award goes to a DSD (Discover Scuba Diving) Chinese gentleman who took the plunge (literally) this August in the Phils with a Gold Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar (legit one, I know watches). Guy was using rented, worn-down rented gear from the guys I dive with. His watch alone was probably worth more than all the gear of all the divers on the boat, plus the boat itself. Go figure. :)

    Pretty much a status symbol. Does nothing underwater than a Seiko SKX or Turtle doesn't do and one does not weep if their Seiko floods or somehow sinks to the briny depths.

    A wiseman once said, "don't take anything into the water that you are afraid to lose". I very much apply this concept to something as superfluous as a dive watch. I like diving with a dive watch as a back-up timer, but I leave my expensive watch at home, or in the room.

    If I followed that maxim, I wouldn't bring my Nautilus radio or Perdix computer on any dives. Adding superfluous to the maxim makes much more sense.

    EDIT: Maybe adding "unnecessarily expensive" would be good, too

    Yeah, there's a little hyperbole in that statement - if I were to follow it to the letter, I wouldn't go diving with my Perdix either, nor my wife for that matter.
