    Bro 59 speaks the truth.

    Unfortunately the ability to disengage from total jerks only comes with age for most people. Younger men have a tendency to behave like cavemen (primal instincts) and they only mellow after 55 or something.

    That GSD strap looks very nice. I've really enjoyed recently getting into the whole leather strap thing....added a nice new dimension to the hobby for me.

    Good move. IMO the regular SM300 is my favorite of all the Omega divers. The only personal negative I could find was mild difficulty using the crown due to location of the bezel.

    People say this comment a lot and I don't understand it. Is it some lucky charm kind of thing, virtue signaling, or what?
    Absolutely not. It’s not about you you Sporty. Not this time mate. I say this because someone close to me is battling terminal cancer. I deal with it everyday. Puts things into perspective especially with these trinkets that I collect.

    Graham 1695 Chronofighter (on the block)

    + a number of beaters....

    While I may purchase another Rolex (16570 or 216570), I like the variety of my collection....
    We have somewhat similar tastes.

    I have also had that pleasure and agree with your statement.

    I also organized corporate 24 hr Navy SEAL training with Don Mann (ex SEAL Team 6) back in 2003.
