    New Hydrocarbon Diver on the way!!!!

    I decided to get the hydrocarbon diver from Preppyboy. I looked at a lot of other things and thought this one offered the most for the money. I already love the tritium vials on my master II diver and these extra wide vials seem way cool and have that traditional diver look as well. I will post when it arrives.

    Congrats! Great choice. This is one of the nicest looking Hydrocarbons in my opinion. The wide tubes are excellent. I had them on my GMT II (sold it). You will be very happy. If they made it in 42mm it would be my perfect dream Ball.

    Congrats! I really like their divers a lot. I have the Mad Cow, which at 42mm is a little more robust for my larger wrists, but I don't think you can go wrong with a Ball at all! You'll be impressed at the quality of detailing on the watch -- IMHO, my Mad Cow beats a Rolex any day!

    Hmm. My uncle owns a Submariner. Maybe I can convince him to let me do an experiment???
