    I was going to go with the Casio Sea Analog but it's getting more and more popular, and I'm not sure I want a watch that everyone can identify on sight =P

    I'm looking for a good analog(or combo) watch around the 60USD range, but I can flex. I like the look of dive watches with orange or black dial.

    Any recommendations or brands I should check out?
    Thank you very much

    That Casio is a great choice. A lot of watch for the money. You can't really expect much in the way of exclusivity in this price range, but if a watch suits you in function and on looks, who cares? I am not a big fan of resin bands. I find them generally uncomfortable and inflexible.

    You might consider an Invicta 8932. I really like this watch and wear it regularly. 200m, decent stainless bracelet and basic black diver looks. In your price range and also a lot of watch for the money.

    There are a few Seiko and Citizen watches in your price range. There is one in particular that I am thinking of, but I can't remember exactly what the model was... I think it was a Citizen, and it was kind of known for its good illumination. Somewhere around the $70 mark. It was a dive styled watch and I think it was quartz, but it might have been an auto (sorry I'm sketchy on the details). There are also some "field watch" styles from both manufacturers around your price range.

    However, I would also highly recommend casio. They are superb watches for the money.

    Take a look at the Orient Mako Dive Watch. After you sign up on for the newsletter you get a 50% off code to use on your first order.

    These have somewhat of a cult following on the watch forums. I just ordered the orange face with black strap. It has shipped and should be here in the sandbox by this time next week. 80 bucks shipped!!!

    What complications does the Orient Mako have?
    I couldn't find any info about that button on their site.
    An alarm perhaps?

    The pusher at 2 o'clock is only for setting the day of week. Unlike Seiko which sets both day and date from the main stem. O.K., but another area for possible failure and water intrusion.
