    Please help me id this watch!!!!

    I was watching the most recent episode of Real Time with Bill Maher and I was really impressed with the timepiece Jay-Z had on. So, in trying to identify it, I noticed a few characteristics:
    • the two metal buttons on the leather bracelet
    • the contrasting white stitching along the edge of the leather band.
    • Although the name is not clear, it seems to be one long word like "Panerai" or "Chopard” (it is not either of those brands I already checked!).
    • the knobs on the side of the watch are very distinctive, in trying to help me correctly identify this watch please pay close attention to this detail.
    • only the 12, 3, 6, and 9 hours appear in large letters on the face of the watch.
    • there seems to be some sort of two lined sub-text below the brand of the watch
    Other than that I am fairly stumped so any help is much appreciated!!

    i inserted a few links so you can check it out.

    Thanks

    Good call on the TW:



    If it's not that (I'm not sure he'd be wearing something so affordable), it could be a U-BOAT Flightdeck, one of the new Nixons, or some sort of Russian Diver.

    If you notice the date window I am pretty sure it is a TW22 ... the font on the hour markers also matches. I don't think U-Boat does one that looks quite like that. That it is really a fashion line sorta matches up with the person wearing it.

    WOW! thats a really good call. also i noticed that the the lines below the the name match up on this model too. one thing is, i dont see the two dots on the face of the watch on any of the angles i have, but it may just be because they are covered.

    . . . and yea, who would think Jay-Z of all people would wear such an "accessible" watch?! probably got if free and just wore it!!!

    thanks for the help though!! will definatly be spending a lot more time on this site, just discovered it!!

    Cheers
