    I see room for a new MKII - and it doesn't need to be an automatic!

    I stumbled upon the Lip Nautic-Ski. A super-compressor case with an electronic movement. The watch is from the 50s, 60s and was quite 'big' in Europe. Lip was a fine French manufacturer btw.

    A little larger perhaps, 40, 41mm. 20mm lugs and perhaps a quartz movement or something along the Citizen solar-powered route would be great as well. I even have a name for it: Utah. As far as I know, the only place where you can ski and dive during the same holiday! (Correct me when I'm wrong

    That's a nice "hommage" to the IWC Aquatimer, but still different enough, unlike the Debert DT7919...

    Splendid!

    A long time ago I mentioned the same Aquatimer as a 'next' watch, like you do. (Great minds think alike!!) What I like about the Aquatimer/Nautic-Ski is the Supercompressor case with the internal bezel and in case of the Nautic-Ski the once-new technology. That's why I suggested the watch to have solar-powered movement. It would leap-frog MKII into the lead: a homage with a state of the art movement!
