Still a nice watch though, stainless band, textured black face, looks pretty similar to the Rolex Oyster Submariner Date. Keeps time well, and is very durable (it once sat under 2 feet of snow for about 3 days, and survived). Can't say the same for the band though, it's broken once, and is loosening again.
Personally, I'd love a Breitling Navitimer (I'd take any model), but I don't have the funds to drop $3000 on a timepeice right now.

Funny thing is I bought it brand new from the dealer in Sweden for $2800 and sold it a year later on ebay for $3150...go figure
