Ok, here's a net photo of my recent order.

Its a Riendenschild Dark Sea Diver Pro / Hand assembled German Automatic.

There was a Black IP case/band that I drooled over about a day longer than I should have apparently as it was sold and I could not find a comparable replacement at the price I was willing to pay.

The Limited Edition has stainless everything which alleviates the wear I was willing to accept on the black version.

Anyone have any practical experience with this particular company or product?<table *********="" #ffffff="" width="100%" border="3" cellspacing="1" height="229"><tbody><tr><td *********="" #ffffff="" width="23%" height="20"> Model:</td> <td *********="" #ffffff="" width="77%" height="20"> Riedenschild Watch (http://www.discountwatchstore.com/riedenschild-watches) - Riedenschild (http://www.discountwatchstore.com/riedenschild-watches) Limited Edition DarkSeaDiver Pro Automatic Diver 1112/03-01</td> </tr> <tr> <td *********="" #ffffff="" width="23%" height="21"> Case material:</td> <td *********="" #ffffff="" width="77%" height="21"> Solid stainless steel case with screw down case back</td> </tr> <tr> <td *********="" #ffffff="" width="23%" height="21"> Case dimensions:</td> <td *********="" #ffffff="" width="77%" height="21"> 45mm (1 3/4") in diameter not including the crown; 14.5mm (9/16") in thickness</td> </tr> <tr> <td *********="" #ffffff="" width="23%" height="21"> Weight:</td> <td *********="" #ffffff="" width="77%" height="21"> 8.5 oz with metal bracelet, 4.23 oz with rubber band (http://www.discountwatchstore.com/store-search-watch-bands%7C98.html)</td> </tr> <tr> <td *********="" #ffffff="" width="23%" height="21"> Movement:</td> <td *********="" #ffffff="" width="77%" height="21"> 21 jewel Miyota automatic movement; 32 hour power reserve</td> </tr> <tr> <td *********="" #ffffff="" width="23%" height="21"> Crystal type:</td> <td *********="" #ffffff="" width="77%" height="21"> Highly scratch resistant sapphire crystal</td> </tr> <tr> <td *********="" #ffffff="" width="23%" height="19"> Crown: </td> <td *********="" #ffffff="" width="77%" height="19"> Push and pull crown with screw in crown protector</td> </tr> <tr> <td *********="" #ffffff="" width="23%" height="21"> Water resistant:</td> <td *********="" #ffffff="" width="77%" height="21"> 200 meters</td> </tr> <tr> <td *********="" #ffffff="" width="23%" height="21"> Face color:</td> <td *********="" #ffffff="" width="77%" height="21"> Black and red dial</td> </tr> <tr> <td *********="" #ffffff="" width="23%" height="22"> Band type:</td> <td *********="" #ffffff="" width="77%" height="22"> Two watch bands (http://www.discountwatchstore.com/store-search-watch-bands%7C98.html): stainless steel band with fold over safety clasp with push button and black rubber strap; band changing tool included</td> </tr> <tr> <td *********="" #ffffff="" width="23%" height="24"> Lug size:</td> <td *********="" #ffffff="" width="77%" height="24"> 22mm</td> </tr> <tr> <td *********="" #ffffff="" width="23%" height="21"> Band length:</td> <td *********="" #ffffff="" width="77%" height="21"> Will fit 5 3/4 - 8 1/2" wrist</td> </tr> <tr> <td *********="" #ffffff="" width="23%" height="21"> Additional features:</td> <td *********="" #ffffff="" width="77%" height="21"> Internal rotating bezel; Date display; Luminous hands and markers</td> </tr> <tr> <td *********="" #ffffff="" width="23%" height="21"> Warranty:</td> <td *********="" #ffffff="" width="77%" height="21"> 2 year warranty on all Riedenschild watches (http://www.discountwatchstore.com/riedenschild-watches)</td> </tr> <tr> <td *********="" #ffffff="" width="23%" height="21"> Items included:</td> <td *********="" #ffffff="" width="77%" height="21"> Original Riedenschild (http://www.discountwatchstore.com/riedenschild-watches) packaging with owner's manual warranty material</td> </tr> </tbody></table><!-- store_display/smarty/templates/promotions_horizontal.tpl --> Free Bonus With Your Purchase!

I'm on the hunt for a black metal band but for the time being I'm going with a Zulu strap aiming for this look..

Any thoughts?

I was pretty sure this forum was dead.

It's my first automatic and now unfortunately not my last :)

I'm looking at the Marathon line and searching for suggestions in regards to multiple complications that won't break the bank.

Invicta has quite a few dive watches I'm interested in as well.

Marathons are awesome tool watches. If you can find one, the CSAR seems to be a favorite of many, but they are over 2 grand.

For the GT of watches, take a look at Watchuseek.com, and be prepared to be amazed.

Watchuseek was one of the first forums I signed into.

I'm not big on flash as far as the watches go but I really like the mechanisms and movements of mechanical watches so tool grade is right where I want to be for now.

I have the same user name over there, but don't post much. I can't afford to. :rofl:

I like the utilitarian look of the Marathon's, but think I'd rather have the TSAR or JSAR. I love auto's, but for some reason prefer to have the quartz Marathon. No idea why, though.
