    Dug granddad's Sicura out of the safe this week and bought a NATO for it. Lookin good, and ticking away all day, and more importantly, all night on my table. Not bad considering it's spent 99.9% of the last 15-20 years just sitting, unwound.

    Thanks, it's unique, for sure. I've already been asked about it twice today (from fellow geek engineers). It's only 10:30 :lol3

    Takes a little to get used to reading it quickly, and thank goodness I still have good vision since it's not a very big watch.

    Very, very cool. I can imagine it's quite the conversation piece.

    Treat yourself to a camera that can take a good macro shot.

    Nice watch. I like the style.

    Got the Seiko eventually, they shipped it from Japan. I didn't like the height of the case at first but it has grown on me. It's a keeper.

    I'll change the strap to a brown leather one at some point.

    Oh, the pink background? My wifes laptop lid :lol3

    This came in the mail from Russia yesterday. Added the NATO strap today. It's really cool.

    They're certainly assembled in the USA. As you know they use Japanese movements. I don't know where Fred gets the cases and bracelets but their quality is remarkable for the price.

    I have a Sea Shark, too.

    Thanks for pointing that out for the community. Regrettably, I'm a bit anti-quartz, so I had forgotten.

    Alright, my birthday is on the horizon so a watch is a definite possibility. Which of the following would you recommend: Hamilton Khaki Field Automatic 42mm or Smiths Everest? They are roughly the same price, both autos, both look good on leather (even though the Smiths comes on a bracelet). As an outlier I am also considering something like a Casio Pathfinder PRW2500-1 for a hunting/outdoors watch. Any thoughts, opinions, personal experience with any of these would be greatly appreciated.
