Steeldive produce a range of high quality “tribute” or “homage” watches. Take the hassle out of buying a Steeldive watch and buy it from a trusted UK seller. It is possible to buy these watches direct from China and save a couple of £’s. However, the shipping and duty charges can be a little “random” and there’s little comeback if it arrives faulty. We would recommend sourcing your watch from the official Steeldive UK dealer VJS Trading. All these watches are held in UK stock and arrive with NO duty or additional shipping charges. All purchases are covered by the comprehensive eBay Money Back Guarantee

Steeldive Great Wave of Kanagawa

This is one of Steeldive’s most popular watches. Here we have a lovely STEELDIVE SD1953J SUBMARINER “GREAT WAVE” dive watch with a FREE strap. This is a ‘go anywhere, do anything’ watch. We think it looks just as good in the boardroom as it does on the beach. This is the “Great Wave Kanagawa” version inspired by the 1953 Rolex Submariner. The whole watch dial is luminous so this watch looks almost as good in the dark as it does in daylight

Is a Steeldive watch just a fake Seiko dive watch?

No – Steeldive watches are generally designed as a tribute to some of the best and most famous dive watches. They are often, but not always influenced by iconic Seiko dive watches and other Swiss dive watches. Importantly, they are NOT fake watches as they do not make any claim to be the original watch. These watches do NOT bear any of the original branded livery (logos etc).

Example 2 – Steeldive 1952T “Fifty Fathoms” dive watch tribute

Here we have a drop dead gorgeous STEELDIVE SD1952T “Fifty Fathoms” tribute – a high quality automatic 300m WR diver’s watch. The SD1952 pays tribute to the vintage Blancpain Fifty Fathoms developed for the elite French Combat Diving School. It was one of the first modern diver watches, pre-dating the Rolex Submariner. It was also the first to have a rotating bezel. With a case size of 41mm – the same as the original – it’s a lot more wearable than the 45mm modern interpretations.

Dilema – a modern reliable homage watch or an unknown origin refurbished one

In our opinion it makes sense buying one of these watches over a 20 year old watch of unknown origin. Steeldive make a lovely homage to the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms. They also produce tribute watches to many of the most popular Seiko diver’s watches. This includes homages to the Seiko SKX, Tuna, Turtle and a very nice Seiko Captain Willard homage. That one reproducing the looks of the classic 1970’s 6105 Seiko Turtle. Other best sellers are the Steeldive SD1970 (Captain Willard), the SD1975J Kanagawa Wave (Seiko Tuna homage) and the Steeldive SD1952 MilSpec (Blancpain Fifty Fathoms tribute)

Big brand alternatives – Orient & Invicta Diver’s watches

There are two other brands that may appeal to customer’s looking at these Steeldive watches – Invicta and Orient. They are massively popular brands in Asia – known for their own quality and innovation, not simply “tribute” watches.

Invicta Pro Diver and the 300m Grand Diver

The Invicta range of dive watches include the hugely popular Invicta Pro Diver and the 300m water resistant Invicta Grand Diver (both pictured below). Invicta Dive watches feature very good quality Japanese movements like the Miyota 8215 (Citizen owned) and the Seiko produced NH35 (automatic / hacking).

Orient Mako, Kamasu and M-Force

Orient watches are a wholly owned subsidiary company of Seiko Epson. All Orient dive watches use movements Made in Japan – in other words – great quality at a sensible price. The most popular from this brand are often referred to as the Orient Mako – a Rolex Submariner styled divers watch – and the Orient Kamasu. However, Orient themselves do NOT refer to these watches by those nicknames.
