Oris Divers Sixty-Five

For much less money, the latest TAG Heuer Aquaracers arrive in similar colours and sizes (41mm), 300M water resistance, ceramic bezel, plus a sporty, modern design appearing in the exact same era as theOmega Seamaster 300m 42mm Replica Seamaster Diver 300M. It sure is interesting to see how there’s a $2,000 delta here, both above and under the $4k cost of the Seamaster, even though none can represent a perfect analog.The Tissot Seastar 1000 Powermatic 80 gives you an identical set of specs, modern vibe (notice the skeletonized hands), and a great deal of value for considerably less cash at US$995 on a steel bracelet (or $20 less on a ring). Its Powermatic 80 is an ETA CO7.111 movement, which in turn is an ETA 2824, we believe, modified to provide 80 hours of power book with a 3Hz frequency.Finally, there is, of course, that the Rolex Oyster Perpetual (hands-on article here, and you can find the URL to the Cost of Entry article above) that is Rolex’s entry-level piece at $5,700 for your 39mm version. While this Cost of Entry series may also be useful for aspirational consumers mainly interested in the prestige of a name, I believe that a great deal of insight about a watch brand could be obtained by inspecting its basic or affordable product. This exercise really concretely establishes a numeric baseline for your brand’s price range and just what you buy for that cost – and how I see it, which sets a context for the entire brand. Any brand’s entry-level piece ought to at least reflect the manufacturer’s values and quality standards, or even also its representative design DNA. In Omega’s case, their entry-level offerings score very high in all those respects.
