    Prefer one with hands and not digital.

    Specifically which features are you interested in?

    Some people don't distinguish between a dive watch and a dive computer.

    Is a display of NDLs important?
    What about current depth reading?
    Nitrox-capable?

    You may want to check ebay for a Sector watch. They are sport watches and some are water resistant to 200 meters.

    Any Seiko Diver's 200m watch will be perfect for this. They make watches that are well-respected by the watch-obsessed, and they're not expensive despite being quite innovative technologically. One particular model was a classic among GIs in Vietnam, and its descendant is still in production today for a little over $100.

    My Momentum is great.
    I also have 6 Casios. Love them. All have been great and used for years. I get them here for almost nothing.

    I enjoy my citizen. It's Eco-Drive, so you don't have to change batteries and it is 300m... if you ever need it.

    Ditto the previous Momentum comments. The M1 is a great watch for the price.

    Citizen aqualand is good for that range for depth.
