Love the vintage mil watches. Your Elgin is fantastic!
Spend time on MWR as a result. Smile

I like the strap NATO colors. Looks great on the Duro!

Anyone wearing any red white & blue today?

My mildly modded Orient Mako USA II is getting some wrist time today. Happy Independence Day everyone!

A question please to all you watch gurus.
My son gave me a Citizen Military a few years ago and the canvas strap is getting worn.
Who makes some replacement straps (sailcloth, silicone??).
I saw Barton’s, but then saw mixed reviews on the quick change feature (and I really don’t need to quick change the straps once I pick when I want).
Thx!

r0gue, I'm curious if you've ever owned, or possibly still do, a Rolex Kermit?

Yep. Bought one brand new from my AD over a decade ago. Sold it quickly after (at a loss... can you imagine??). Not a good move on my part. Mine was literally as-new in box. It'd be worth a King's ransom now.

Gorgeous, thank you for sharing! Probably my favorite of the stainless steel Rolex lineup.

I hope it lives up to the hype and was worth the wait.


It will. Prepare to be amazed.

Certainly not a guru, but I was considering a BluShark NATO band for an old watch.

Thought I'd give a shot in better lighting,.. but still just with an iPhone. My wife has an amazing Nikon, I really need to pull it out and try for some optimized movement shots on this.

Seven days of power reserve!? Dang. I like that they hid the power reserve indicator on the back rather than clutter up the dial.

Is that a power reserve indicator or a means to regulate the watch?

Well it came in...rduckwor you were correct. The Helm Vanuatu has indeed had a spectacular first impression on me today. I preordered this watch back in early November of last year. It was originally expected to be completed in May but due to things it was delayed a bit. It was worth the wait!

I wasn’t expecting to see a certification of water resistance or a hand written thank you card. Very cool. The fit and finish, case shape, bezel action and even the way it fits on my wrist are all superb. For they money this Helm Vanuatu just might be the best dive watch on the market. At just over $300 this watch punches WAAAY above its weight class. This thing is just shockingly good for what I paid!

It even came with a NATO strap sporting KTM’s colors. Big Grin The bracelet it also came with is superb but until it cools off a bit it’s staying on the NATO.

The writing next to the indicator says "SEVEN (7) DAYS POWER RESERVE," so it's unlikely to be a rate adjustment.

Yep, the man knows what he is doing when it comes to dive watches. Enjoy it and be well.

It’s the Power Reserve / gas gauge.
