    Anyone have any experience with this watch? I'm just looking for a backup bottom timer for my computer that wears well when not in SCUBA duds. I currently have a basic Timex Ironman that I've taken to 104' without problems and its very easy to read but the buttons controling the chrono get accidentally depressed far too easily. It also looks kinda cheesy in my above water atire :wink: I'll probably ditch the rubber wristband for a black velcro band so I don't lose it as easily. It looks pretty snazzy for a price I won't have to dig too deeply for...

    Nothing? I figured someone would have some experience with these things, they are advertised in quite a few of the magazines and quite a few shops push them.


    Ah well... I guess I could be the guinney-pig.

    Just bought a Timex Helix Depth Meter Watch to use as a backup. It has Temp, Current and Max Depth, Dive Time and Handles Surface intervals as well. Has a Lock to keep in the mode you set. Not too bad looking and got it for a song through Campmor.com ($39 + shipping). Have yet to dive with it though

    Hope thats of some help.

    I have the St. Moritz Nereos 1 watch, which has been successfully taken to 175'. Looks good on the surface as well, doesn't look like a laptop on your wrist.

    I guess I should add that my only complaint about the watch is that I cannot read it in the dark. There is no backlighting of the display. Sure, the bezel has small glow in the dark dashes but it is very hard to discern the different marks.

    I have that watch, get the one with what they call a green dial, it glows like crazy. Real nice watch, quality product.
    Here's the one I have (as I said, the face will glow like mad once light hits it, way more so than any gauges I've seen).

    They are very good, I have used one for 5-6 years on many dives. They are assembled in Vancouver, BC from a mixture of Swiss and I believe Japanese parts. The M1 with the velcro band is a very good deal. No problems with battery changes, I would stick out my neck and say for a fraction of the price they as good as a Seiko dive watch.
