It's in a shop over the road from the Scandic Simonkentta Hotel. No price but one sold via Christies for about $1000 recently-ish.

I like the looks of that. I wish it had standard lugs for easier band replacement.

Thanks! That one came from an Amazon vendor and it's too short. I normally buy Maratacs from countycomm.com.

I love that Glashutte Senator Sixties! They make it in 42mm with panoramic date too, and at some point I'm going to get one with the white dial.

It's a stock SNZH57. I love the kinda vintage look. They're commonly modded, though, into Fifty Fathoms homages, and those look great, too.
