i bought one of these, little xmas gift for the family:
Panasonic - TH-42PH9UK
need to get a table stand for it though. i don't like the curved one - looking for the (discontinued) rectangular one to show up on ebay.
reto, of the pmwf.com website, has a pretty big selection of mechanical and automatic seikos available, at what look to me like reasonable prices.
check out the Seiko 5's; some of them look good to me. There are even a couple models that approximate the look of a Grand Seiko.

Before I vote, I need further information regarding what kind of refreshment would be available to me in space.
i too am wondering about what comparisons might be made between the 'amenities' offered here on earth versus the 'refreshments' out there.
'cuz, you know, there are amenities, and then there are amenities.

lucas is a big poser who never even went to outer space. sloppy research, is what it is.

that fact alone turned me off of the archie comics for good.
i find it ironically amusing yet almost yawn-inducingly predictable that archie comics should be filled with (unintentional? latent? freudian?) sexual innuendo. give a 'naive' repressed evangelical a brush and he'll paint you a lurid picture of his...
