How much did this go for?
Does anyone know where this watch is manufactured??? I'm very interested in what country the 'automatic movement' is made in...thnx!!!
I have the Sea Ram II Quartz watch from Deep Blue and it's a decent watch but not overly impress as well. I thought the lume would be excellent but just above average and not even close to my Seiko Sumo. I'll most likely sell mine later on since it's not getting much wrist time.
I, too, have the smaller version (Sea Quest Auto 1500M in Orange). It's an outstanding watch for the money. The lume is amazing and while I'm not a big Miyota guy, the 9015 is a solid movement (it's proved to be much better than my Miyota 8215). A few things to note on this one though. First, I paid less than half the price of this one for mine, granted it's smaller (a definite advantage in my case) and half the depth rating (which is still far deeper than most can ever expect to take it), but it also is a little lighter (but still really heavy) and has most of the same features (same movement, sapphire bezel/crystal, helium purge valve, and expandable solid link SS bracelet). Secondly, this thing is massive (49mm)...and very heavy to boot (mine is really heavy at over 8oz. or more than half a pound, this one is a ridiculous 10.5oz or about 2/3lb!). Finally, I was somewhat disappointed in the orange face with mine...it's not hard to see and the finish is fine, but it just isn't as bright and vivid as the photos depict. If I had to do it over again, I'd get the white lumed face instead (this one isn't fully illuminated like that one though), or maybe even the blue.
There are some good points though. The depth rating is amazing, the helium purge valve is a neat feature (even if you'll never use it), the crystal and bezel are sapphire...really, really thick sapphire (which it needs to withstand that crazy depth...two metric tons of pressure per square inch!; yeah you read that right 4400PSI). It has a really nice solid link expandable bracelet with a safety catch which is really nice if you actually plan to dive with it (though a simple and cheap NATO arguably works even better because of the inherent springbar redundancy). The build quality is nice (though there were some sharp-ish edges on the underside of my case, it's not going to cut you and isn't visible), which is clearly evident when you rotate the bezel. It has a good movement and if mine was any indication it comes well regulated (I have a couple of Swiss watches that keep inferior time by comparison).
Long story short, it's a really nice watch...just know what you're getting into before you pull the trigger. If you haven't any plans to dive, this might not be the best watch for daily wear...there are plenty of others that will give you the style without the unnecessary weight and features this one comes equipped with and some of those cost a lot less (like the ever-popular Orient Ray or Mako).
I know absolutely nothing about this brand, but I do like this watch's aestheti and the movement is certainly serviceable enough. Do any of y'all know about this watch or watch company?

I own two (Daynight Tritium Polycarbonate and an Alpha Marine 500 T100) that were produced in the last couple years and love them. They have good customer service and I have even had direct correspondence with the owner, Stan Betesh. My Alpha Marine had a screw fall out of the band and when I emailed to ask to purchase a replacement, they asked for my address and mailed me one for free. amie Doughe!���d�&

That's great to hear! Smaller companies can live or die on their customer service. Good to know you've had good experiences. Enjoy your watches!
A really serious watch. I own 3 of them. The only thing not mentioned is the band has an expansion mechanism to facilitate wearing with a wet suit without lots of manual adjustment. If you are looking for a dive watch, they deserve consideration.
I've got 2 Deep Blue watches (and an Air Blue), amazing value for the money. I've been planning on getting this one, I just can't swing it right now. That sapphire bezel though....
I have a smaller Deep Blue watch---build quality, fit and finish are exceptional. This one, however is way too big for me.

Where are they made? Japan?

I have 2 Deep Blue Alpha Marine 500 Swiss Automatics, (that's the name of watch as stated on the dial), and "Swiss Made" also appears at the bottom of the dial. Swiss made is also on the back of the case. From a look at their web site my guess is the Depthmaster is made in Japan, they have segregated their Swiss made models in a separate section.
This is a real divers watch, not like invicta hence the reason it's so big and overbuilt. I've owned a number of Deep Blue watches and they are fantastic watches. I admit this thing is a monster and very much overkill, but at least you are getting quality with this and not "bling" like an invicta of equal size.
I'll take 2 for equal ballast.
Too small, needs to be 55 and up. Refer to Invicta for help
Nice size, can I land my chopper on it?

I think, in addition to the chopper landing pad, you can order an optional howitzer as well. 😊
Impressive water resistance but too much of a hockey puck for me
