That is nice Mars. I've always liked the clarity of that dial/hands combo.

Why do I always make it to the bottom of the page?

They stopped making the saw tooth bezel. This one is a 2010 model and it came with its extra links, box, cards and papers. The Black bezel hasn't been available for some time. It even has a dive extension like my Tag Heuer has.

It's a honkin 42mm plus the over sized bezel. It wears much larger than it seems. You don't need a weight belt with it, that's for sure.

I've been cruising Macy's site for watches after that Seiko sale. I noticed that their Luminox watches are listed as Suunto Luminox watch when you open it up to look at details. I've never heard of any merger.

Other than Mondaine buying 50% of Luminox in 2006, I haven't heard of one, either. Either Macy's knows something I don't, or their ad writers messed up.

You think the bezel is nice, get a load of the coin back.

Nothing fancy like what you guys have. But I splurged (from my perspective) on a watch that looks decent with features important to me: atomic, solar, easy to read / high contrast face, water resistant. And also has dual time (although 24 hour clock so I thought it was wrong at first).

Thanks to David, course!!!!

The 007 is a 42mm watch. The Skx013 is the 38mm version. Same movement. Nice watch. I’m a big fan of seiko automatics Perfect watch for somebody with smaller wrists who wants to wear a diver.

I have a new favorite watch to take along to the pool or lake. This mini turtle is a great little watch that loves to get wet. I like the Omega SMP style wave dial. It doesn’t catch the light quite like a Seamaster but it looks great in the sun.

Naw! The "never touch" screw on the back exposes the crown release for the movement.

All dive watches have helium release valves, the screw down crown. Unscrew it!

Just got some new custom made leather for my Tag along with a couple of other matching fine leather products from Greg Stevens Design. A 40th birthday present from the wife.

Man, this is some good looking stuff. I absolutely love 'em.
