Keeps ok time, usually about a minute or two fast after 24hrs, which is perfectly acceptable to me. NATO is from Crown & Buckle, and is much better than the "genuine leather" stock strap. Total investment is right around $30, which works even for a broke undergrad such as myself.

I'm just getting into watches myself, so I don't know too much- check out the Affordables sub-forum at That's actually where I heard about HMT, and I blame them for the damage done to my wallet!
Very cool. Has definite early-model Seamaster vibe going on.

I'm also guilty of using study materials as a backdrop for watch photos!
