I take RNguy and your point about the short hands. Even if it's part of the aesthetic, if you don't like that is that. I will be staying the course with the 2 or 3 hander. It's been long enough now that it seems a shame to get distracted.Funny re: dress vs sports watches. Even though I work in a casual work place and don't dress very formally, I've found my interest in watches going the opposite direction to yours. I've been increasingly interested in more classically...
Great price for a fantastic watch. If I was in the market for a high end diver this would be on my hit list. If you have the funds, I would snap this up!

I know what you're saying, but it does seem a common feature of world timer dials with an outer ring for time zones. For example, the Patek 5130:Or even the sporty IWC Pilot Worldtimer:
I fully understand the quandary. I've been holding out for a top-tier 2 or 3 hander (as has been discussed) and carefully squirrelling away my pennies...But have almost been lured several times of the straight and narrow by other temptations; for example, I very much like the JLC moon phase watches, either the JLC MUT Moon or the new derivation of the Master Calendar. The GP wwtc/Traveller wwtc has also proved tempting:I travel internationally frequently, and have...
Nice; is that the version with an enamel dial?
