I always have a steadfast love for diver and adventurous watches. I like their rugged design, their handy functionality and unsurpassed reliability. These are really for wear and tear. A daily use outdoor watch.... a watch meant to be abused.
I always love the 6309 diver for its robustness and simplicity in design. It is also cheap and can be used in all occasion. I don't think I would look ridicule if wearing this on my wrist with a tuxedo.
I have blogged my slim cased 6309 diver HERE and HERE before, and this is my spare one. Initially I want to have this modified but it has been years and I have done nothing yet......
