    Interesting. I always thought they were more popular in Asia. Thanks correcting that misperception. There are definitely other brands I'd choose over a GS, but that's just me.
    Congrats! Thats a beauty. I like it far more than the skeletonized version of the 15300 (the 15305). Enjoy it!

    LOL at the idea of Comic Sans on a watch dial. It's probably been done though, cause that $hit is ubiquitous. How it ever jumped from the colored superhero pages, I'll never understand.

    Back from servicing. The JLC service center gave me a bit of a scare at first, but in the end they took care of it so I'm a happy camper again

    Glad to hear everything worked out. What was the problem and what was the scare that you mentioned?

    It might be good enough for Navy Seals, but when it comes down to it, could it really handle my desk diving? :embar:

    Please do not explain what desk diving is, or why you need a watch for it.

    Sorry....couldn't resist...far more mundane than it sounds....

    This definition comes from Urban Dictionary:

    1. desk diving

    A term used in the watch collecting community to refer to scuffs, scratches, and wear to a watches bracelet received while sitting at an office desk. These marks are considered normal wear and tear and are usually received while typing as the bracelet rubs the desk. The term comes from the popularity of diving watches that are worn not for diving purposes, but for aesthetic ones in the office.

    "This watch looks brand new except for some desk diving marks on the bracelet."

    Good work. Unless you're using one of those "special measuring instruments" that register 5 inches as 8 inches, this looks spot on.
