    I got my Great White

    Cosmetically it's perfect, I think it has already been brush finished by a jeweler, how else could a 7 year old watch look perfect. Mechanically it seems fine also, smooth turning crown, precise hand movement. If it runs as nice as it looks I'll be a very happy camper.

    I'm fortunate to have found a good one, and so quickly. It already has a half link in the bracelet, I removed a full link from each side and it fits perfectly. It is running very well too, well within COSC both resting and on the wrist, +2-+6. I can't stand a slow watch so this is a joy.

    Would you say this is the least seen of the discontinued modern Seamasters?

    Congratulations...almost a month late. I used to own one and I thought it looked fantastic on rubber.

    I miss the texture on these dials. These look so much more high end then any of the current PO.
    Cheers,

    Michael

    Tell everyone you saw it on IWL!
