Used some of that windfall money to pick up a 2009 contract Marathon JSAR! It's unworn, so I think it falls under the "NOS" category.
Wow, even on rubber, this is one heavy piece of metal. It's easily as heavy as my Chase-Durer, possibly even heavier. It's not nearly as big as the 46.6mm width would lead you to believe. It's definitely wider than most of my 44mm watches, but it's about on par with my Hamilton Sunset. It is the thickest watch I own though, easily. It looks great, feels great on the wrist (I can feel my left bicep getting bigger). It'd not going to make my 44mm watches feel small, which is nice, and was a worry.
Now the only thing to think about is if I should do an ETA 2824-2 conversion or not.
So, now that's out of the way, here's what you're all waiting for. Crappy iPhone pics!
(Lume got charged up a little from the flash)
And of course the wrist shot:
The rubber is excellent, though the vanilla scent can wreak havoc on your appetite. I got hungry every time I got a whiff of it. I figured I was going to get something with 22mm lugs and I needed some NATOs for my Sunset anyway, so I have straps in the mail already from a couple of days ago.
Thanks for checking in. Special thanks to por44 for sending it my way.
