I believe that the Diver is supposed to be a tool watch that is fit for purpose...

...and with the water resistance, it certainly is on it's way there. I think the Wempe was unique in as much as it had a smaller "waffle" dial and more elegant indices. To fully capture the market it's targeting, I do think a Destro version along with dial colour options should be available for the new Diver. Some form of protection (or harder material) for the bezel would be a good idea as well for owners who are more than desk divers.

My only regret is the Wempe had that gorgeous engraving on the back. Shame the new Diver doesn't have something like that. But still, it's a fantastic piece and will hopefully entice a new range of customer base to the brand.
