If I regaled all with this tale, bear with me. I bought the watch a year and a half to two years or so ago and loved it. Best orange in the world. Most comfortable. Then had some issue, subsequently taken care of with professionaism all around. And I love the watch. It's size and its beads of rice bracelet make it about my most comfortable watch I own.
But as is the case so many times, I traded it for a new love of my life and life was still good. But over time I missed the watch. It had gotten me to get Dr Pete's book, for which he still owes me a beer but i will get u\p there one day, and I wanted it back. Not any, mine! Luck was with me and a fellow forumer, thanks Caesarmascetti, who had the watch wanted to reverse the trade. DONE DEED. Both are happy campers. This time it is a keeper. but I finally took the beads bracelet off to protect it and was suprized that the end link was not solid. Maybe to be historically accurate but not a deal breakerr for me.
So I wanted a different look. This was a reissue of a classic diver so on went a NATO. Damn looks good.
So sorry if this is old news but the NATO is new news and I love it.
