    I was going to ask the same! Looks exactly like a marinemaster 300 Tuna until I clocked the longer logo!

    What's the panarai look-alike? Is that a diver as well?

    The PAM-alike is a bit of an enigma. I don't know its origin but it runs a very accurate Unitas close, probably a Seagull, and the quality is exceptional.

    OP you may have or soon will have a watch box full of watches worth a whole Rolex or Omega etc.

    Id choose the Rolex, but nice collection and each to their own.

    It would be some size watch box😁

    Those Steeldive watches look excellent for the price, nice collection.

    Well that would be a joyless result for a watch collector.

    Thanks. Ive owned three Omega; 2254 for ten years, Bond Blue Seamastet and a Speedmaster reduced. All very nice watches.

    At some point I will buy a Rolex OP but strangely, being a lover of dive watches, not a Sub. I do enjoy having a bit of choice which having one expensive piece doesnt enable. Youre absolutely right though, each to their own.

    How heavy is the Steeldive? I've always been worried about getting a Tuna style watch in stainless.

    I wouldn't wear on the bracelet, and id be worried about top-heaviness and wobble.

    It’s around 200g, but the Tuna is quite a low profile piece which hugs the wrist and its hidden lugs mean that the strap/bracelet keeps it close and flat. There isn’t much wobble or top heavy topple. It’ll wear surprisingly well even on a smaller wrist.

    The weight of the bracelet balances it out even more, and the case shape is quite smooth too.

    The Steeldive SD1975 is the perfect ‘try out’ piece if you’re considering a Tuna as it’s near-identical to the original. Only 179 from a couple of sellers on eBay.

    Thanks. I will continue to be tempted...
