    That's a well spent $85, Mustapha. I mistook it for a Universal Polerouter Sub. I can only make out AutoOrient. What is it?

    Hi and thanks bcate3 On the dial it says: 'Full Auto Orient King Diver'. Orient watch company is still in business today. There is a vintage-y design on the back: [​IMG] Orient website here [Warning; the designs might not be up to the taste of some of the 'classicists' here]:[​IMG] http://orient-watch.com/global/index.html -Moose

    Cold day. Not made warmer by the fact that it's worsted. [​IMG]

    Mark,

    Thx. Me too. My daily wearer lately. I tend to go in cycles. This one has my eye lately.

    Great buy, Esutace. I'm still kicking myself for passing over the same model last year from my AD.

    Mark from Plano, That is a nice Omega. I too wear a vintage (1949) 18kt gold Omega as a daily watch though it's a hand-wind on an elephant strap. [​IMG]
