Depth Meters & Dive Computers (Cool Bathtime Toys)



By TLex: I'm on the hunt for a new toy for the bathtub! The rubber duck's going into retirement. Number one on my list is the 1990 Seiko Scubamaster M726, actually there's a gold version the M725 that I would love to get hold of, but they are quite hard to come by especially ones in mint condition, which is what I'm after.

In my search I also came across the M705 and the M796, although in my opinion not as good looking as the M725 both are just a well equipped.


I have always been an admirer of the Citizen Aqualand especially JP2000-08E and its sibling the JP2004-07E both circa 1990. I have often considered an Eco-Drive 20th Anniversary Aqualand JV0030-01E or JV0055-51E the yellow titanium version.

I don't know too much about the Cyber Aqualand, or the Casio Sea Pathfinder, but they look cool. And I love the look of the Casio MD-703 which I'm also on the hunt for.

I am throwing a St.Moritz Nereos into the hat as I have heard great things about them and they are very similar to the Aqualand in spec and look.

By the way I have a lot more info on pricing and specs for each model that I will add to this post in the coming days.
