    Hi Hayward,

    I like how Sinns look, but the ETA movements bother me. As for the money saved by not using a "finer movement" or developing an in House movement and the fundss going into, case, dial and bracelet design, couldn't that be said of most companies buying & using ETA movements?
    Not being able to pull the trigger on nice watches that use ETAs as a base may be a flaw with me ; ) I came close to buying a Cartier Santos Galbee XL and on another occasion an IWC pilot watch", but I couldn't get over the ETA movements.

    I think Seiko makes some greatc watches. An acquaintance of mine has a really nice one. Although I tend to favor Swiss watches over Japanese or German brands (actually the only German watch I'd really like to own some day is a Lange One). But maybe someday I'll add a Japanese and German watch to my collection.

    Picked up the PAM177 today...so I guess I officially have a "collection" now...of two watches.

    Apologies in advance for the bad pic. Also assumed nobody wants to see my very pale, hairy wrists.

    Thanks for this guys. Unfortunately like I said, the earliest I can address this is in about 10 days time, unless I cut short my holiday, which I don't really want to (seeing as its my honeymoon and all.. the new mrs might not be too happy) but have opened the crown and let it sit indoors in sunlight, and am pleased to report that the condensation cleared up shortly after. First thing on my to do list when I get home is to make a beeline for the service centre though,

    If it's your honeymoon, don't be stupid - at the end of the day it's just a watch, and an old Yachtmaster at that.

    Your honeymoon takes precedence over this. Enjoy the rest of it!

    If you cut short your honeymoon for a watch, your new wife will cut short your marriage.

    Perhaps the answer would be to simply order collection by Fedex/DHL/UPS from your hotel (even Afghanistan has DHL), and courier the watch to your local/favourite authorised dealer back home.

    Mimo>Bingo. Less corrosion hazard, and you impress the new wife with your efficiency.
