Aloha fellow Ball Enthusiasts,
I have had a Fireman Racer (blue on white) for around a year now, and while there is so much about this watch that i like, I find myself missing the "diver's bezel". This has lead me towards the Master Engineer II Diver for an Every Day Wear. I am also kind of leaning towards the darker finishes, but mostly i want one in Ti.
So, here are a couple questions to kick off a discussion:
What models are there out there that are Ti? I have only been able to find a limited edition with a thermometer-
now, I like this one a lot, but the thermometer, while it looks ok , is something i just don't get- most watch thermometer only seem to register one's wrist temp, and how often do i look down to see what the temp is? in fact, I don't get it so bad that it is kind of a deterrent.
The other model which recently caught my eye was the GMT:
I like one a lot as well. The GMT function is actually somewhat useful to my line of work and i like the clean lines, but i am kind of looking for something in Titanium. Has anyone seen one of these in Ti? and what other Ti versions of the MEII Diver are out there? are there any COSC? (also something i am looking for)
feel free to post pics as well as opinions! (am I crazy for being Ti-crazy?)
