If a diver’s watch is on your shopping list, there are a plethora of options available at a broad range of price points, but many expect to fork out four or five figures for something with a great build quality. Thanks to Vague Watch Co., you can get your hands on a classic style for a bargain price.
For the last thirty years, Vague Watch Co. has been creating watches that pay tribute to the rarest of timepieces, and doing so at more affordable prices. Their Black Sub watch has been inspired by the classic Rolex Submariner in terms of aesthetics, and it’s a pretty decent option given the price.
The Black Sub features the same classic dive watch style, and is powered by a Japanese quartz movement. The case is made of stainless steel, which has been darkened and given a brushed finish. You can choose between a leather or nylon strap, both of which are included with the watch. The bezel rotates and the crown is screw-down. It also has a domed crystal made of hardened mineral glass. The dial is black with luminous indices and sword hands.
Like any dive watch, the Black Sub is water resistant up to 100 meters, which traditional thinking generally suggest is all you’ll ever really need.
