    It looks a bit odd when looking at it but looks so damn good on the wrist. Very nice! I like the fact that the screws match.

    Well, it depends. In some cases professional is just a marketing gimmick.

    In others it probably has to do with various certifications that the watch receives. Military standards, diving standards,...
