This diver watch is equipped with an operating indicators can quickly tell if the chronograph is working, that is, if its really measuring set time intervals, if its ready to be activated. And be assured that correct time was displayed on the various counters. Its employs JLC Calibre 758 which has up to 65 hours of power reserve.

Rolex Submariner
Needless to say this is by so far likely the most popular divers choice for both armature users  and professionals, and watch collector as of it name in the waters for the past 50 years.
If you are diver, that is the basic tool you may have already

In terms of Value and durability, I choose Rolex Submariner, In terms of technology and function, that is Blancpain, In terms of cost performance, that is Tudor and JLC, in terms of Style and probably of its exquisite shape, I think Omega and IWC, In terms of history in the name of Marine watch and Clock, and the Small number on Earth that we can have, that is Nardin Give no excuse not to buy all but one.without consideration of the money in my pocket, I am sure I take the Blancpain! Because it was an Iconic watch since 1953!

Hi Marcel
I think Ref, 16610LV has higher potential of being a collectible item. As this is 50th anniversary watch,
