So, thanks in advance!

 

Hah, mimo, you are such an enabler!  That's a compliment, by the way. I guess that goes for a bunch of other SFers, especially the ones posting in this thread.

 

But for now, ssssh... I'm hunting.  Don't want to scare away the prey.  If I don't post as often over the next week or so, well, it's because I'm hunting.   marchal.gif   <-- (Attempt at "Batman")

Red Sub on NATO is about as cool a "one watch" as I can imagine. Nice one sir!

Very nice. I really like Subs on NATOs.

Something a little different, but IMO worth getting behind:

Help Fund A New Three Book Series On American Wristwatches In The Deco Period


The boys over at Worn & Wound turned us onto what appears to be a very noble project out of LA - the production of a three book series on American wristwatches during the deco design period. The first book, centered completely on the Hamilton Watch company, has already been produced and is ready to ship. Mr. Ty Alibert Rulli has turned to Kickstarter for the funding of the next two books, and the promotion of the entire series. His goal is to reach $75,000. Read more about it right here and pledge away!

The series head's kickstarter video is somewhat... unpolished (but sincere), and the (cute) publisher girl who appears later on kind of threw me with her accent (she is Romanian), but at the end of the day it's $150 for a watch book that appears to be not only lavishly illustrated and very well made, but one that covers a genuinely interesting topic which is quite badly neglected except for in a few sub-specialist fora. $150 is not bad for a specialist watch coffee table book anyway, and at the end of the day it's just 1 drink less at 15 or so subsequent bar visits anyhow.

Everyone knows about the Reverso (and rightly so), but there are so many other interesting art deco watches out there. The man who kickstarted (haha) me off on my watch obsession had (among other things) a Hamilton Piping Rock, and that was a really interesting watch that ticked all the important boxes - manufacture, design, heritage.

I saw that today Apropos. Very cool. The Hamilton one is pretty interesting as well.

Also, great Red Sub DD. One of my favorites, easily. It looks at home on a NATO (or ZULU) for sure. But then, I love NATOs and ZULUs. I bet you have a ton of fun wearing that piece!

Actually this particular strap is a Zulu.

I think I prefer Zulu's to NATO's to be honest. My NATO's always seem to become undone.

Regardless, that is a superb sub.
