The bracelet is well constructed. It is thick, heavy, and uses one sided screws to hold the links, making sizing a breeze. Ocean 7 uses the best clasp for a dive watch in my opinion; the ratcheting extension clasp, making micro adjusting or putting the LM-8 over a wetsuit as easy as the push of a button. My only gripe with the bracelet is that it’s all brushed on the front and back, but polished on the sides. I just wished they left the sides of the links brushed, as it would eliminate noticeable scratches from accidental screwdriver slips.

The screw down case back is deeply engraved with the Ocean7 logo. The screw down crown is also engraved with the Ocean 7 logo, and operates flawlessly with no wiggle or stiffness when setting the time or winding.

The lume is very adequate, but far from the strongest lume I have seen. The lume should last a good 3 hours or so before fading completely. I somewhat wish that the ceramic bezel was lumed as well, but of course that is not a necessity.

I have a 7.5 inch wrist and the Ocean7 LM-8 is really my limit, especially with the lug to lug length. You can see it goes end to end on my wrist and sits quite high as well at 17mm.

I've been an avid watch lover since the age of 7. Watches are not only my hobby but a passion. My favorite style used to be dive watches, but field or non bezel watches have been growing on me. When I'm not reviewing watches I am either cooking or with family and friends.

  1. I love the ocean 7 watch. Yes it is bulky but that means it will be seen. I disagree about the engraving I think it gives the Ocean 7 alot of character.
