    I would but I can't afford to at the moment (I won't be buying a Submariner). I bought this one because I was curious about the new Seiko movement and I wanted a little project to do. I have lots of years left and two timepieces to target. More important things are taking up the larger fund pools at the moment. I have time.

    Well done!

    Btw, which Invicta is that? They have like a bazillion different watches. I didn't know that some of their watches use Seiko movements.

    Are you sure it's not a Miyota (Citizen) movement?

    Good stuff. I'd rather have the Seiko movement as well. I have an old Invicta diver that has seen hard use as a beater watch for gotta be 8 years plus now. Can't seem to hurt it.

    Looks like a nice dinner. Although, I'd suggest the IWC is more like a 3rd cousin [​IMG]. This last generation of the Ingenieur, its actually quite different from the watch Genta designed. The original Genta watch, the Ingenieur Jumbo SL has a softer more rounded case and bracelet and there are no "shoulders" around the crown protector. Later generations became more angular and had sharper lines. Still a very beautiful watch, and with its relatively reasonable price, it was a fantastic alternative to a Rolex DJ.

    Today, I'm wearing my other Genta designed watch, the 38mm Cartier Pasha.

    Looks like fun and that's a couple of nice watches there. Hope you had a wonderful time.

    I have to say that most of my watch friends are "virtual" LOL.





    Nice one, Dino.

    Do the pushers and crown have the blue cabochon (sp?)

    I recall seeing your Tank of course, but must have forgotten you had this one as well.

    Beautiful texture on that dial.

    Oftentimes, virtual friends are superior to in the flesh versions.
