Isn't the moon phase/tide info the whole point of his watch.. so how is yours the same?

@waricle Pretty neat watch

A little late to the party but I just got a classic Casio digital 50m "fashion watch". Specifically says "no windsurfing...". For real. Hahaha. Then looked at the one I've been learning while wearing- so spending most of my time IN the water, and it's only a 50m too. Seems fine after 6 months of surfing, showers, heated pools and beginner windsurfing. Does that mean that the new retro Cassio would be fine too? Figured I'd just ask some real water-people. Cheers!

Tag is a Arab company which purchased Heuer watch company in the mid 80s. Tag never made any watches.

Yes and maybe, yes Heuer made all the watches but I think Tag although owned by an Arab is actually a Luxembourg company. Lvmh owns tag Heuer now.

If you can think of it, it exists:

watchaware.com/watch-apps/1016528618

That's the PRO app, though. I think you have to be a PROfessional or some marketing... seriously why do they do that? Add "PRO" to the names of things? "Playstation PRO". Are there really professional playstation players, that require a pro model? Really?

Anyway, I like to derive the tide by the moon phase, more so if I can actually see the moon.

Or, the tide is simply the opposite of last weekend, minus 1 hour.

I don't own a watch, but some of the above look very, very nice. Thanks for posting. I might even get one.

Looks like the same movement though I prefer your colour as it is easier to read the tide dials.

Rip Curl watches have always lasted pretty well for me and are priced quite reasonably. I'm surprised how many watersports watches have glass that sits proud of the bezel... I've always ended up smashing those in a wipeout.
