Thanks everyone for your feedback on this model. Once again I lucked out and while I lost out at the auction(it actually was closed out by Ebay)I lucked into a great deal and it is on its way as we speak. Thanks Brian as once again I get a "hand me down" from you and once again it is a great watch and a decent deal.
Now all I have to do is wait!
ps: my thanks also to DOXA who offered me a very fair price but this was a deal I could not pass up.
pps: thanks Brian for the temp use of your pic.
