    An original Magnate owner stopped by the store today, and the owner was nice enough to let us photograph it along to the new Magnate GMT C.O.S.C. for the board. Thank You Dave!

    I also have a white dial Engineering Hydrocarbon Magnate GMT COSC so I really enjoyed the thread, the comparisons, info and pic's ... thanks to Rob and the other members it was really cool. Not sure if the pic's showing the removed cyclops does anything for me, so use to having it. Maybe if the date numbers were larger the cyclops could be skipped.

    The little magnifying part of the crystal to make the date look bigger. It ypicially is higher than the rest of the crystal and prone to scratches.

    Thank you, TC. I compared pictures earlier and could not figure out the difference for anything. Now I see it.
