The number of good mechanical dive watches available at reasonable price points continues to grow, small/niche brands seem to be popping out of the woodwork every month. It’s a great situation for dive watch lovers. And following up to last month’s post about getting 1000m water resistance for $399, how about 3000m for only $699!

Book Giveaway – Patek Philippe in America

Hodinkee mentions another giveaway in a recent review. Seems to be a common occurrence these days, which is great!

This review and giveaway is not for a timepiece this time, but for a reference book on one of the more expensive watch brands out there, Patek Philippe. A great coffee table book for the majority of watch collectors :-) but also a great reference piece it looks like for those who actually collect this brand.
