Overall, I do think Ocean7 did an excellent job with this new LM-8 model. It’s not a watch for everybody with its size, but if you like thick, well-made, chunky stainless steel dive watches, the Ocean7 LM-8 may be for you.
The best part is the LM-8 is currently selling on Ocean7’s website for $699. Under $700 for a Swiss Made diver of these proportions and housing an ETA 2824 is a bargain these days. For $199 more you can upgrade to a COSC movement, which makes it a COSC certified watch for under $1000 USD. It all ends up being a great value.
