Nice watch.

It is the Thom Browne version, does it come with a short strap?

Actually they are ordering me a new shorter strap.

The Thom Browne watch is the Glashutte Senator 60s. However, I opted for a vintage Longines instead.

if it is the sea dweller it does not include the magnifier glass. Well they look the same only difference i can remember is that the sea dweller can go down to 1220 m.

Man, sarcasm is wasted on you guys. Of course it's a Sea Dweller.

I just got a vintage '40s 18kt gold chronometer-grade Omega which I think looks nice.

I knew what it was, I was trying to be nice about breaking the news to the other poster.

Sounds like a nice watch. Can you post pics or are you awaiting arrival?

Yes, I am waiting for it to arrive.

I tried finding a stock photo somewhere but was unsuccessful.

If you think you waste a lot of time in discussion fora now, just wait until you try photographing watches. Setup, lighting, downloading, editing, deleting all and starting over... There are a lot of hours I wish I had back. Nice watch though.

It's a shame your view is spoiled by that smoke stack.

The Marina Militaire is an exact copy of the original Italian Navy divers watches from world war two. The original watch has been reproduced here to almost exact specifications of the original which was given to Italian Navy divers fifty five years ago. The case is large and substantial designed to be water proof and strong for military use – the water resistance is not tested on this watch and there is no marks on the case back to indicate water resistance. It has got a large canteen style crown clamp to secure the crown into place for water resistance. The strap is held into place, not by usual spring bars, but by screw bars for additional security. The case back is screwed on and is a plain steel back. The case is made from stainless steel. The dial is referred to as a sandwich dial where the numbers and batons are cut out of the dial and become visible as the dial is sitting on top of a base plate. The hands are gilt hands as the originals were. The hands, numbers and batons are luminous. The strap is a 26 mm wide tan leather strap with enormous pin buckle which is about identical in size to the original from 1945. The movement is a hand wound Russian made Molnia pocket watch movement. These movements are pretty durable and reliable. This is a large and heavy watch. The dimensions are as follows: width is 46 mm excluding crown and 54 mm including crown guard, Lug to lug is 57 mm, Thickness is 15 mm. Ref. NWW 442. Price is £195 or US $385 Is it legit? IS it cheap because the movement is Russian? (I should have prefaced this by admitting that I know nothing about watches - have just dipped by toe in the water with a Nomos Tetra for wearing with a suit and now looking for a sports watch). Many thanks, W.
i would be careful with this. russian movement? i believe the swiss movements are the best. there are vendors selling panerai look alike with the actual Unitas Eta movement and it's the same as the one on Panerai. the problem is, ebayer says its Unitas Eta movement but actually knock offs from china so not worth it.

I have an internet stalker who repost the link to this on another forum I'm part of saying I got "owned" (as in put in my place or something) in this thread/forum. Not sure how that happened.
