Took it with me new celly just now.

Only 10 ATM water resistance on that? Do you have any wrist shots? I am interested to see what a watch that size looks like on.

Thanks for the wrist shot Sniper. I really like it. Too big for me, but it looks good.

Go to timezone.com and look in the sales corner- lots of good, decent sellers there.

One here - the seller has been around too. Not a fan of the aftermarket bezel.

I personally prefer the black face - not quite as common and the hour markers really do pop out in person.

This one's a little rough but they're always popping up for sale there. Just be patient and watch for a few weeks to learn the market and the sellers if you aren't already.

Good luck - it's nice to see that prices have gone up since I purchased mine.

He's a steady-Eddie. Smooth and consistent, fast but keeps his head and doesn't wreck shit. A good guy to have in your car.

Doesn't like using a cool suit and the drink bottle went kaput in Jersey two years ago. Ran the car in 100degree heat, 80% humidity. After 60 mins we pulled him outta the car and he got an IV on pit road.

That is the point to that watch, it is supposed to mirror the looks of a vintage aircraft instrument like the Bell & Ross BR01 series.

I really like the vintage aircraft instrument look on watches, too! These are so much nicer in person than the photo shows. The next time I see one, my wallet is toast.

I've often wondered if one could get good watch deals at flea markets. Do you know how good his deal was?
