I'm not very fond of those orange hands. They make a quality watch look like a Canal Street special - cheap.

Well Bos, i'm not a huge fan of orange hands either, but considering the rarity of the watch, and its condition i couldnt pass it up

Well how about that...nice movement and microrotor...I'm surprised that sort of movement was put in a diver style watch.

VERY nice!

@bon: I wasn't dissing your watch.
It's a very interesting piece and I'd be happy to have it in my stash. UG is high quality stuff.

Very nice watch. It will be great if a good watchmaker could restore this one - relume and some touch up. The movement is beautiful.

some pieces are like that.. takes a while to get into you. especially vintage watches i find. at first glance it is not very nice, after a while, suddenly it just 'speaks' to you and you know you just have to have it.

But I thought this watch is really a nice catch too. I suppose it's not transparent caseback?

I know you weren't dissing it bos I was kind of agreeing with you. The orange was and still is a bit of a turnoff for me. The good thing is that it has enough pluses to make me overlook that or like it more and more.
