I'll tell you why I am a fanatic about these particular divers, [u]the value[/u]....

I cannot believe the value for the price, it's unbelievable! These Knights feel so incredible on the wrist; they are heavy, but Seiko found a way to proportionally balance the case and bracelet.

The White Knight has a cold/steely beauty to it. The Black Knight has a classic diver look to it. The Orange Knight has a charasmatic appeal to it---an unbelievable amount of stares on the subway I have received, along with that question, "Where did you get that?"

All in all, I have had 8 Knights (3 White/3 Black/2 Orange). I now own 5 (2 BKs, 1WK, & 2 OKs), and have given 3 away as gifts to people I love.

[i]All my best, thanks for letting me rant & rave....[/i]
