    Would it be fair to say that O & W and SA are similar?

    E.g. Swiss Army ground force has a display back, and a 2824 movement, and sapphire, but O & W has similar movements, mineral crystal, but more panache?

    Im comparing a ground force auto (SA) and O & W Ocean Vintage as possible future purchases.....

    If you look around among Ollech & Wajs models you will find many with sapphire crystal as well, and still at a very affordable price. Yes, I think O&W has more panache, but that is of course a personal opinion.

    They have a 'military' 2824 that Ive eyed in the past with sapphire, but this particular one doesn't. Its got a hand wind 17 jewel movement, and a really clean vint font script, but the SA is a Titanium ground force, and its got sapphire, titanium, and an auto eta. Both are awesome for different reasons-im just trying to justify one over the other for myself since I can't get both.

    Westcoast Time is a sponsor of the Pilot's & Military Watches Forum they carry a good selection of O & W. I believe that Freda Strap also carries some models both can be linked to in their forums.
