    ^^ You'll need huge wrist to properly wear it as well , for they were designed to be worn over WWII pilots' aviator jackets. . The case diameter is, IIRC, 50mm. And that is without the crown [​IMG]

    Some are around 55 if I remember correctly. And I have girly-man wrists [​IMG]

    There have also been a few Seiko's added and also a Ocean7 LM-1 LE. There are a few others I have my eyes on but I think I have been put on hold for a little bit by my better half[​IMG]

    Both the Stowa and the Fortis are nice wathes.
    I love blued "pointers" on crisp white dials.

    Are your Seikos japanese market auto's?
    I find mine a 23j to be amazing value, and very low key.
    Am even considdering a GrandSeiko, as opposed to a submariner.

    Speed

    Thanks the Stowa is 40mm

    Older version Marine Automatic without date, and COSC specs, with upgraded decorative movement,(blued screws etc..)

    That Fortis Chrono looks pretty cool!

    Thanks it is one of my favorite pieces, it is a lot more impressive in person IMHO[​IMG]

    Do you have anny pictures of the rear? I asume as the movement is uppgraded it is visible ... in fact if anny of these are glass bottom, pictures would be most appreciated. I find the tunas to be quite unique, but not my "cup of tea". Speed

    After getting a carbon fiber strap for my PVD Marina Militare clone, I realized that the goddamn thing was sewn in. So, with the help of an array of tools and craftmanship, here's my watch on its new strap. Thoughts? [​IMG] [​IMG]
