Agree with my old mate above. I have the captain Willard and it is a cracking piece. Steeldive put out some great stuff. Nice pick up.

There are a few brands that seem to be manufactured in the same place: Steeldive, Addies, Sharkey, San Martin. The quality of the watches is very good. Usually Seiko homages and better quality than some Seikos I’ve had. Love that Blacpain homage - seriously nice watch there.

The say it’s a NH35 seiko movement... not sure it’s a seiko but it has a great reserve time and after a week on my wrist I  synchronize it with my legit Tudor black bay with an eta.  Wore them both for a week there was 15 seconds difference between the two

The NH35 is the "unbranded" movement that Seiko outsource to other makers/brands.

The same movement is called the 4R35 when branded and used in a Seiko watch.

 

They seem to be a reliable workhorse. Based on the 7S26.

 

Watch looks great by the way!

This is pretty impressive out of the box

I just got a Steeldive 1954 last week, been wearing it for six days and it's gained eighteen seconds, really impressive and the lume is as good as my Seiko solar diver,

different colour though.

I  just got my PloProf, literally arrived this morning, amazing watch for the money with absolutely fantastic lume. Had to wait about a week as the UK seller was out of stock, he did have one but it had an issue that made him unwilling to ship it to me and asked I wait until his new stock arrived.

I also have a 1952T, more of a dress watch for me as I have big wrists, I have the Serie with slightly different dial, watch runs a bit slow, about 20s a day, the PloProf is looking a bit better for accuracy. Will give them a couple of months, then have the local watchmaker regulate them both.

Good opportunity to share a photo.

The steeldive ploppy keeps coming back into my list.

Without a relevant pic on hand, I have owned a few Steeldives (SD1954, 1940S), and while their fitment has not been the most refined, they have elected thus far to not move "up market" in the same manner as San Martin, Octopus/Baltany and Hruodland (among others) have over the past two years, and offer incredible value should one want to try out a new flavor.
