Steeldive watches hails from Guangzhou, China and were founded in 2008. So, they are a relatively young watchmaker, like many of their Chinese brethren in the industry.
But, don’t let the fact that they are Chinese fool you into thinking they produce junk. Sure, there are a lot of budget watchmakers on the market like Skmei, Peugot and Burei, but these guys are out to make quality dive watches.
They actually focus on homages, like many low-priced watch companies. And that is not a bad thing. After all, why not produce something that is popular, only cheaper? There is a market for it.
But Steeldive seems to focus on not only the high-end models like the Submariner but also more popular dive watches like the Seiko Tuna and Turtle, amongst others.
It surprised me to see a Tuna Homage in their range. But then again, no one else makes them!
