    If all else fails, drop me a line when I'm free. We often have people up for fun dives and failing that, I'm about! Would need to be a Sunday for me though.

    IMHO... diving watches are either cheap or good. You cannot have both. If the latter, then they are expensively pointless, as opposed to cheaply pointless. You do not need to tell the time...
