[**sorry** thought i was in the vintage pw forum-not dive f. Mod can move this if he sees fit and I can't. Didnt mean to post about a 'dive bombers' watch instead.]
After lusting after a black(maybe even brownish) dial w/SS Sky Chief around 2005 (after seeing the 'B' hollywood teen thriller : Hot Rod Rumble or Hollywood Rumble where the watch featured prominently on Gene Vincents wrist) I finally got over it when I found Omega and the SpMs. But now I have an opportunity to pick one up at a fair-but not cheap-price and cant decide if its still worth all the fuss. Seller is sending me info on what other skyCs DID sell for a 2yrs ago
. but now is now
So-my question is other than style and panache and the connection to fighter planes-how does the Sky Chief stack up against other comparable chronographs from the same period from some of the finer names in chronographs like Lemania, Omega, Heuer, Valj. etc? Is the sky chief just okay with a lot of show? Or is it a substantial piece of watchmaking history? I have over a week to figure it out so I'm not sweatin' bullets.
