The Galways are just stunning.
^^^^ Awesome man.   Saints on a train:      
Same as MM is my best guess. It certainly LOOKS ceramic, though.
 Yeah, I've had my eyes open for a while and checked Watchrecon periodically - which is where I stumbled across this one used, but in good shape.  If you find one brand new at $1k that is about as good as it will get.  You can do a bit better used.  Either way it's a hefty jump over a regular Sumo.  But the way I rationalize it is it looks just as good as the more-than-twice-as-costly Marine Master.

 Cheers. Wristy from this morning. Don't recommend pairing a dive watch with a jacket and tie, but it's new and I'll be wearing the heck out of it regardless.

Bravo.
