While the Stowa is a schweet watch, I would have to choose the Doxa. They've been doing orange dive watches since 1967, plus it has a dive table on the bezel.

Well, if you are not concerned about the actual diving capabilities then just get the one you like the best.

I decided the prodiver is too big. I decided against the Doxa because of the bezel. I do not think I can read the elapsed time without reading glasses as it is too small. Also, in case you want to rmove the bezel, it requires a proprietary tool. I do not like that idea,

I am thinking about hot rodding an SXX007 or monster instead, with an orange MKII SAT dial, AR sapphire and finding someone that can put an 6r15 in it. That may quench my desire for am orange watch.

Howeverm I'll keep my mind open to other suggestions.
