I have a very old Seiko, not of any value other than sentimental, as my father gave it to me 24 years ago.   The battery stops every now and then and I take it to the repair centre and get them to check it out. on its return I am told not to get it wet as something inside is not creating a good seal.    I told them I'd be happy to pay for a new seal / etc. to which they said they don't have parts for this watch any more and that all Seiko watches have spare parts for...

LOL. He is consistent. i had asked about the new Omega GMT and he steered me away form it which I thank him for. Now I've just looked at the new Rolex  SD4000 in a shop last night and ... it's very nice. It's a toss up for me between the the new SD4000 and JLC master Calendar... Decisions...

It's rare to see positive comments in this thread - so it's good to see a general consensus ok this jacket. Nice!
