    Looking especially pretty on a mesh bracelet, I think...

    I like Milanse mesh a lot. This is my friend Emanuela's A-13A with an Omaga Seamaster bracelet

    I love the layering of the dial, and the double coated sapphire looks great.. I’m jumping in on this post way late but I’m sure that this timepiece has improved by quite a bit since the initial post.

    Before retiring I was assigned to one of the 4 USAF units that are tasked to support the US Forest Service's aerial firefighting mission with MAFFS II (Modular Airborne FireFighting System) equipped Hercules aircraft. Each unit (3 Air National Guard and 1 AF Reserve) dedicates two airframes during each fire season. Our two aircraft were always designated MAFFS 2 and MAFFS 5 (AKA Firebird 2 and Firebird 5) and identified by the large day-glo orange numbers temporarily affixed to their forward fuselage and vertical stabs. I think specially adorned A-13A's would be popular with this community.

    A few years ago we lost MAFFS 7 and four crew members to a microburst over a South Dakota fire. I would be up for a memorial piece honoring our fallen friends.
