Summary: Overall this is a decent dive watch for this price point.
1) 200M water resistance
2) Smooth 120 click bezel
3) Very good readability
1) No safety clasp
2) Only one micro adjustment in the clasp
3) Less than average luminosity
I have owned several divers in this price range and I think the average watch enthusiast will always make the comparison to the Seiko Monster when you are talking about $250 dive watches. The Monster is an automatic and has the some of the best luminosity in the business. This Ballast watch offers some very good qualities in a larger case size. But if you are looking for something different and don’t want a ‘me too’ watch like the Seiko Monster this is a reasonable alternative.
