That's a legendary watch, similar to Rolex Submariner.

Just picked this up.  A new-to-me 2013 Maratac Large pilot.

 

 

on my 7-7/8" wrist.

I just traded in a Rolex oyster and a Omega seamaster quartz for this.

 

 

I have had it for a week and it is keeping great time. Well within Omega's claimed 1-2 sec per day.

Where do they claim 1-2 seconds per day? My understanding is that they only claim the COSC spec of +6/-4 seconds per day, but in actuality they make them more accurate. In any case, kudos to them for trying to best the antiquated COSC rating, and congrats on the great watch!

3 of my current favourites.  Casio G-Shock Tough-Solar Pilot, Suunto Core and original Maratac Large Automatic Pilot.  Love them all!!

What do you people think of Christopher Ward?

 

I'm looking for a new dress watch. Something very simple and understated, relatively inexpensive. The only thing holding me back is the 39mm size but then again it is a dress watch.

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

Work in progress..
 

post #7332 of 7934

There we go! Just modded and installed a Maratac Elite onto my G-7800B.
 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), default quality

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), default quality

 

Without a doubt I can say, much better.

Nice, looks kind of Pro-trek-y now.

I've been in the market for a new dress watch myself.  There are a few of their models I like, mainly this one has caught my eye though:

 

I also really like this one from Stowa:

 

 

Any thoughts/experience with either anyone?

post #7335 of 7934

I do prefer the CW C9 over the C5 but the C9 is just too big for me. They now have a showroom in London if you want to see the watches in person first.

 

With Stowa I almost ended up with a Antea but got the Ikarus instead (Or got the Ikarus first take your pick :P) .

If you like the style of the Antea it is a Bauhaus style watch which  Max Bill does but cannot remember if they are cheaper  than the Stowa. 

An alternative for deeper pockets would be a Nomos, but your doubling the price range to get one.

 

Stowa and Christopher Ward both seem great companies and do not think you could wrong with either.

Personally I would go with the Stowa as I like the style more and they do a 36.5 mm one.
