    - one of the most underrated watches..
    I'm really glad I managed to find a NOS one - it's a keeper.

    Mk XV
    We've seen this shot before, yes? Still great.

    Using today's exchange rates, I believe mine was about $3.8k. Used Mk XV's can be had for a good deal less, IIRC. For comparrison, a new Mk XVI is about $4.4k here.

    Just got this today, my first non-military watch, still peasant status. Vintage Hamilton automatic on a teju lizard grain band on my tiny wrist.

    $3.8K? Wow, I'm pretty certain the Mark XV sold for less than that new in the US. Used, they (non-Spitfire dial, nicer imo) are around $4K now in shops, and $2,600-$3,000 used with papers, etc. on forums/eBay.

    Here, the Mark XVI is around $3K new.

    The Mark XV is a far more beautiful watch imo. I should never have sold mine. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Picked this out of the box today: SM300 on braided perlon Nato. Seamasters never looked better. [​IMG]

    I am in fact wearing the same model today - a 165.024 from 1967 on a "MoD grey" NATO. But this one bears more scars, aging and patina than yours... [​IMG]

    New build?

    Nonserviam, you have an enviable collection.

    I've never seen a NATO strap like that before -- looks cool.
