Are you looking for the best solar dive watch around? Well, it’s actually a tougher mission than you might have thought! Not only have I scoured the internet for the best solar dive watches, I’ve actually physically handled and used every watch on the list! I’ll give further details, but let’s get right to it.
Today we’re looking at the G-Shock DW-5600E. It’s a very nostalgic watch, about the closest thing you can get to the original DW-5000C, which was the very first G-Shock. It’s also one of the simplest and most budget-friendly entries into the extensive G-Shock line, which has ballooned to span hundreds of different models.
It’s a more common internet question than you would think: “what are the most durable wrist watches?” I guess there are a lot of folks out there with broken watches in their kitchen drawer…because that’s where mine go. I have torn through many watches over the years and I am always looking for the most rugged and dependable wrist watches around.
As far as dive watches go, there are dive watches and then there are dive watches! The latter being robust timepieces that will handle chasing Sea Monsters almost to the bottom of Loch Ness. Most watch manufacturers usually have one beast of a watch within their catalog, and today, I am talking about a deep diver from Orient Watches.
It’s always refreshing, and a little exciting, to see a watch that’s original, and I was extremely pleased with the originality of the Tidewater. It’s not just another micro-brand diver with Seiko guts (the Tidewater has a Sellita SW200 inside, more on that later), it’s actually a watch with an original look and a timepiece that seems to have been thought out ahead of production.
