Very true, and I think some of the Omega Seamasters will interest you as well (plus cheaper).  BTW folks, I have a Hyetis Crossbow coming, don't know when yet, but will difinitely post pics here when I get it.  Here is the official CG render.

I would never need an anti-magnetic watch, but I really do like the look of the Milgauss. I think the green tinge in the glass is a stroke of genius and gives a very unique look.

 

I've never really like Omega... They have always seemed like a lesser shade of Rolex to me. But if I had to get one, it would be the Speedmaster Professional.

Well, I'd say you hit it right on the money!

Same here, I wasn't a fan of Omega until I ran into, and got, the Seamaster ETNZ, which is a great value (very solid plus two bands.)  Too bad the team lost the America's Cup...

From one end of the scale to the other.

 

I was looking for a daily drive to save some wear and tear on my Seiko 5.

 

This caught my eye a vintage (60-70's) military issue HMT Jawan Para-Shock ,17 jewels hand winder in mint condition .  It came serviced with a new strap and new acrylic domed glass which is has a interesting look. Its been keeping very good time and is a little different all for under $20 delivered!

 

My not very good phone pic (taking a good pic is a lot harder than I thought)

Cheers, I like the history with it and owning a real retro winder is neat, they can be found on ebay easy enough. Finding one with the red seconds hand took a little longer. Going hunting for a inexpensive nato style strap for it next.

But in beefing it up like they did, they took away the subtle charm that the Submariner once had. The new lugs look goofy and unbalanced, and the shininess of the bezel could blind someone.

 

So I went with the SeaDweller, which is pretty much an old Submariner, but with a thicker case and no cyclops. It is also less common than a Sub.

 

How do you like your Milgauss? Are you perhaps a scientist?

The clasp of the new Submariner is also different and much nicer than the old version. I guess is a matter of personal taste. I personally like the new version much better but I can not trade mine for anew one because it was my wedding gift from my wife.

 

I guess I will have to go for the new Deep Sea :wink:
