 Very nice photo of the TF.  Hopefully, the professor is a Cartier fan, and not a Rolex fan. wink.gif

 Looks fantastic!  Congrats!  I like how it looks far more on the bracelet than on the rubber strap.  Great choice and I hope you enjoy it.

Nice!! I have an Arktis.  Not that I'm a cold water diver. But I did live in upper MI at the time.

I've never been into the case of that AP, but the overall feeling is..."sir, you are hardcore"

 Very cool vintage Seiko chrono.  I generally think of Seikos being digital quartz watches (like my Dad had) in the late 70s.  So its interesting to see some of their other vintage offerings.

In any case blue lume just tops off the horrible styling of today's Rolex. Almost every high end watch marque has been coming out with tribute styles, some better than others, and Rolex' response was to turn their entire line into a horror show. Everything has to be bigger and have more word salad on the dial. More power to you if you like that sort of thing. 

I don't care what any aircraft cockpit looks like. I just don't mind a nice blue lume sarcasm.gif

And I drive a BMW.

This is a fantastic watch!

 

It reminds me of 2 watches I love but don't own... yet...

 

Tag Heuer Monaco and the Tudor Heritage.

I regret not getting the Arktis. The blue dial is stunning and I have enough black dial watches as it is.
