I got a pair of Rancourt-made eastland beefroll pennies (eastbrook model). fit a little snug but should stretch out over time.

Here is my contribution. 1) Squale 50 atmos A watch with great looks, and an even greater history, the 50 atmos is one of the most attractive and well-made non-homage dive watches under 1K. The caseis excellent (not to mention iconic), and the dial/hands are a nod to some of the best dive watches of the past. 2) CWC GS NAVIGATOR WATCH W/DATE A no-frills, no-nonsense quartz field watch. It's decently built (in Switzerland, if that...
