    Ive ordered the Alligator!!

    Hi everyone.

    A big 'Thank you so very much' for all your information and opinions. Each and every one of you has been so helpful over this. I have researched like mad both the Titanium and Alligator but you can't beat the experience of other owners (hard to find when there are only 1,000). It was so good to hear so many positive comments about the weight and 'feel' of the watch from members who had one. Thanks guys. I'm glad it is heavy as I don't have any other really 'heavyweight' watch. It is one of only 1000 as well which is pretty special. Interestingly I thought the same about the day / date configuration which I too think is better on the Alligator.

    I like them big and heavy (Ive got a Big Bang and Corum Bubble Skeleton too!) I like the Ball build, detail and whole brand. I have ORDERED the 'GATOR!! It was $2,799 but I will have to pay VAT and import duty on that . I will post photos when I receive it!

    Thanks again everyone from a Brit who has fallen in love with his.... no I can't say it!!!

    Wow congrats! I think it'll be a great watch to own, and it's got such cool extra features, like the 1000m depth rating the the HE valve (I know a lot of people feel it's superfluous and that it'll almost never be used, and that's true, but I still think it's a really cool feature anyway! )
    Regards,
    - TY -

    If you'd like to read some history about the USS Alligator, try Mark K. Ragan's "Submarine Warfare in the Civil War".
    Also, an excellent DVD from Science (Discovery) Channel: "Hunt for the USS Alligator".
    Congradulations on your excellent new watch.

    Congrats on your purchase. I have seen one in person before, nice and solid build but I ended up buying the 'mad cow', because the 'alligator' wasn't a black dial.
