Sure, you had a sneak peek at this one a few days ago. I decided I could do better than that "stock" photo, though, so here goes! Smile

The silver 'sunbust brushed' dial is quite well done.. check the Mega photo! Wink

Sorry about all the specks and lint.. I totally forgot to dust this one off before I shot the photos. Oops!

Base metal bezel with a SS back, it's a big ol' rascal at 45.7mm X 54.2mm X 13mm, with 22mm lugs. The crystal is mineral of a low-dome design, making it a bit challenging to photograph.

Pity about that reflection.. and a Booby Prize to anyone that can 'guess' the brand name of me tripod! Rolling on the floor laughing my a.. off

I didn't open it up, but dollars to donuts the engine is either a PC21 or a Miyota 2000-series.

I confess that I could do without the tachy bezel, and the hands are a wee bit short. But this watch has a lot going for it!.The fit & finish is A-OK, the strap is decent.. and it certainly has a commanding presence on the wrist! And, hey! Not every day do you see a compass embedded directly in the dial.. Wink

Big Thumbs up! from me! WIS Honeymoon

Cheers!

"Mechanical watches are so brilliantly unnecessary. Any Swatch or Casio keeps better time, and high-end contemporary Swiss watches are priced like small cars. But mechanical watches partake of what my friend John Clute calls the Tamagotchi Gesture. They're pointless in a peculiarly needful way; they're comforting precisely because they require tending." - William Gibson

Cool dial, and I really dig the slight dome on the crystal, devil as they are to photograph. Thumbs Up

DJM207May 22, 2011 02:08AM

That compass is cool. And a lot simpler that the compass bezel Seiko uses on the Landmonster smile (n/t)

Ed Brandwein188May 22, 2011 01:03AM

Thank you! Bro. Ed! Judging by my..

Then it works better than the Landmonster too. Probably for a fraction of the price smile (n/t)

To be clear: I'd hate to trust me life to it. Eek!
