Also, I'm assuming (correct me if wrong) that those are OEM straps. Can you point me in the direction of a good maker? I would like to get a deployant for the 3717 I'm soon to purchase, but not willing to fork out the hundreds $$ for it!

I believe the datewheel design is in homage to the altimeter found in many a cockpit of fighter jets? I like it because it is differents.

Strap from HKTann. As to deployant......check TZ SC. There are good (and reasonable) sellers of dep. there.

I picked this up from Shnoop.com for only $150! It has a sapphire crystal and an ETA 2892 movement.





Here is the black version. It is not mine.

Sweet - evidently there's only the two of us here who think Accutron's are a good value.

Beautiful! My favourite Omega and one of the few watches I could see join my very modest collection (no-date sub & PAM 177).

Looks like it's floating.

In space.

One of mine as well. What is a good price on the Speedy new from an AD these days? I am looking possibly in the next few months to add to my Seamaster.

Don't have my camera with me, but this is what's on my wrist today. My wedding present for my lovely wife.
