Why: For $600ish new from Helson, this watch sure delivers a LOT of bang for the buck. It has all the features of dive watches costing much much more with 1000m rating, HEV, fantastic lume, winding and hacking movement...but it also comes from Helson with 2 bezels and 3 strap options that can transform this piece into very different styles. The look is a huge nod to vintage pieces which I liked and the size really seems to be "just" right. It's a big watch, but with the case design and hooded lugs it's easily wearable on a 6.75 wrist. I notice swapping out just the bezel can completely transform the look and feel of the watch. All the little bits are there including signed crown and buckles on all three straps. The lume was surprisingly bright, and to my surprise the black bezel markings were fully lumed as well.
