    What (dive)watch do you use as a daily beater?

    This is my go-to watch: a SKX007 upgraded with sapphire, black day/date wheel and a solid oyster bracelet.



    What is your daily beater?

    I love the Omega, IMHO the best Omega-design ever!

    On the wrist more than any other. Never wanted to call it a beater, but now that I think about it maybe it is...

    Love it. I'm looking to do same mods, but i want to put 6R15 in it as well. When done it will be a poor man Sumo with sapphire upgrade.

    My Helson Blackbeard is very much my day to day beater.

    I guess it'd be my Doxa 1000T. The Black Bay gets a lot of wear, but I take care of it a bit more - because of it's provenance as my 'wedding watch'.

    Well, I have a boring desk job so I don't wear my beaters everyday to the office. But on weekends, when working around the house or doing sports, this is what I currently wear:

    Seiko, solar, chrono, timing bezel, comfortable size = perfect.



    Built like a tank



    I used to own this one, but this week I bought another one. No timing bezel but it does have a screw down crown and is WR 200m.
