post #8071 of 35945
Just tossing up a pick of my favorite watch and cigar.

post #8072 of 35945
Well, I was about to get my heart set on the Hamilton Jazzmaster below, but the Rose Gold color really doesn't work too well with my gold wedding ring. Alas. Anyone have any suggestions for a $1K and under automatic watch in yellow gold in that kind of style? I'm fine with gold plated or something not too fancy. Any info is appreciated. Thanks guys!

So complete newbie question: Is it okay to put a leather strap on a diving watch?

what do you think?

you answered your own question with that example.

so long as you dont plan on actually diving with the leather strap youre fine.

Not quite true -several strap makers have a leather diving strap.

It isn't actually a divers watch- that's an old GMT- a pilots watch.
I think in this case it just gets away with the leather strap but not too many rolexes do!

If I'm going diving I would not wear a $5000+ watch.

Again, pardon my ignorance in the subject -- what would a pilot need a rotating bevel for?

There is a third hand which revolves on a 24 hour basis which tells the time against a second time zone while the normal hands keep home time (or vice versa) the second time zone can vary from country to country hence the need for rotation.

Also: On Rolex GMT-Master IIs (both modern and vintage), the 24 hour hand is independent from the hour hand, so that you can track 3 timezones at once. 1st: the hour hand. 2nd: the 24hour hand against the dial. 3rd: the 24 hour hand against the bezel. On this vintage GMT-Master (note, no II), the 24 hour hand is not independent from the hour hand. So it really only tracks day/night. But with the rotating bezel, you can keep track of the second timezone.
