Stopped by a jeweler today to look at some vintage subs. The salesman pronounced the name of the watch in the same way you would say Seattle Mariners. I always say it in the Hunt for Red October sense.
So, just figured out how to use a macro lens with my camera. Kind of embarrassing, but I am not much of a photog. Figured I would snap off some pictures for you guys! Never shot any good ones when I got my baby.

great pics! i wish i could take pics like that. really nice the way you captured the skeleton caseback, and texture of the dial.

that stock pic is terrible, i am sure IRL it looks fantastic, even with such a busy face. although i dont mind a busy watch face anyways.
Too much going on for me...the two complications at the top that look like eyes put it over the top for me.
I agree, I wish they put the power reserve somewhere else. Getting rid of the two top subs would bring the aesthetic more in-line w/one of my favorite Patek perpetuals. Probably easier said than done, however.
Nah I had to sell it, as much I wanted to keep it. It was just a tad too thick for me, it wasn't comfortable. I'm pretty fickle on how I wear my watch. I tend to wear it tight or loose at any given time. The glidelock was a godsend for me.
