Tonight(your timezone may vary) and at this moment, this:
OK it's not strictly mechanical, but it has a lot of mechanical parts. And it's cybernetic for pity's sake. Cybernetic. Yea baby! :)

I'm wearing a little, aptly named divers' chronograph today:
Roi des Eaux Chronograph, cal. Valjoux 7734
'Roi des Eaux' - "Waterking" - was a brand of Geneva's R. Muller SA. I guess it was manufactured for the French market where the counter-clockwise bezel was quite common with divers' watches.

My little pride and joy. Workhorse 1225 movement with very little to go wrong. Just back from getting a squeaky clean new crystal fitted.
With the meaty leather Steve-O strap and the black dial it has a little bit of a 'baby Panerai' feel to it - although I'd take the charm of the Oysterdate over a Panerai any day!
