    Don't usually go for plongeur hands but they work well here.

    Is that a GMT or second time zone hand I see...??
    I have found that some people just like to hear themselves typing.

    Just posted a few photos above. So Seriously beat me to it but there is a great page with specs on the watch. This watch has a lot of the basic characteristics that I tend to like. It's a diver, check. 42-43mm in size, check. Comes on a bracelet, check. Has a lot of lines on the dial and a complication or two gracefully worked in, check. Has history, a story, and is unique, check, check and check.

    So far I am very happy with this one. It wears very comfortably, the bracelet is pretty close to perfect, and it checks the GMT complication box on my list. I've wanted a GMT watch ever since I sold my Michelsen Arctic Explorer last year.

    Anyway, that is all, thanks for the love, hope you guys enjoy the photos!
