The alarm is plenty loud and has a great be-beep warning about 5 seconds before it goes off. That's usually enough to wake me up

Watchmann.com has them all...:

That's a good looking watch too, another ADV color theme match
Very similar to the IWC Aquatimer
but about $5k cheaper

Seems to keep pretty accurate time. I never set it unless it has lost power. If i wear it 3-4 days in a row it stays dead on.

Wow. Love the Strela, love the strap, love the pics. I didn't know they had glass casebacks now. I'm still looking for an old CCCP made one.

I bought the vintage ammo strap watch band and really enjoy it. Nothing weird about this site either.

I agree.

I have been quiet here lately, but just before the 4th I went back to the pawn shop and bought the Grand Diver. After wearing my new digital compass watch for a few days the 47mm Grand Diver didn't seem so huge anymore. I wore it over the weekend and off and on last week. Initially I liked having the new piece of bling on my wrist. Once the novelty wore off I found I was bothered by the mass of the thing. Plus I kept mumbling to myself, "It's not the Hamilton, It's not the Hamilton".

So on Friday I brought it back. The guy at the pawn shop had given me 1 week to try it out. If I didn't like it I could bring it back for a full refund. So now I am still looking for sweet deals on the Hamilton. Plus I want to buy a Winchester rifle for deer hunting and a snow plow for my Ford Ranger so I can plow the driveway back to our new house this winter.

Money, money, money.
