I vote the Nataf era Zenith Defy Xtreme series....
Big, bold, not really photogenic and downright unsellable! Sorry no pic 'cos it hurts my eyes. Haha.

Most Extreme Dive Watches
9 of the most over-engineered Dive Watches I can think of at the moment. Please help me add more suggestions. I'm writing this post because the lockdown made life so dull, and I want to reminisce the good old days under the sea. The Hublot Oceanographic 4...
JLC Master Compressor Diving GMT or the chronograph model at 1000m ?
Yes both very worthy models
Quite sad they don’t make them anymore. I think the brand lost the macho masculine flavour along the years. Now even most masculine piece in the catalogue, the Polaris Mariner looks more gentlemanly in design. I used to like JLC. They are sleeping I guess...
Hold on to this piece
It may become a classic in due time. It is really functional and the titanium shows a blue sheen under water. I had the navy seals alarm.
Here it is!
Credit: Fratellowatches I'd rate the design a 10/10 for the watch case. The only weakness to this watch is the strap which is proprietary - notice the lugs will not allow aftermarket straps easily. There is another version (credit to fellow member Crown C...
I like it Brauner. Always great to hear from you.
Despite SINN UX is a quartz movement..
It is still the ultimate diver’s watch.. 7 years battery power Unlimited water depth Anti reflection under the water “Almost” scratch resistance casing Amazing wearability due to very slim case Very affordable pricing Minimal maintenance cost Amazing clar...
Almost perfect. Beautiful second hand wobble and an unreal viewing angle due to virtually no refraction. (I wanted this so much. But I currently live very far from a Sinn AD, and the battery change is a challenge. If I am back in Singapore, it is so easy ...
The ultimate dive watch in my mind. It takes #1 to me.
Going extreme is fun. Keep on doing this Cookies, to see how it went wrong. Why watch brands make the mistake to loose grip on esthetics. Omega with it’s ploprof is unique, it is only made the way that design is there for it’s function for professionals. ...
I totally forgot about this range. They were so chunky and some designs were so illegible. I wonder what they did with the excess stock?
Seiko “Tuna” models 50mm and above
Yes, there are smaller models but they aren’t as excessively over-engineered as you requested. The original 1975, 51mm watch aka Grandfather Tuna Newer PADI version “only” 50mm The 48mm hybrid Arnie Tuna Cazalea ...
Yes the Tuna's have terrific design
I think they've got the design spot-on. I like the strap which can be easily wrapped around a thick neoprene suit. Excellent response there.=D
I am very surprised now... LOLLLLL
Can confirm that the Hublot 4000m Oceanographic is badass!!!
Wow first encounter
I like the design. It is very legible, especially the thick hour hand. Gonna read more about these marvels now.
