Agreed. Makes you wonder if the owners wore them only as diving tools. Because the sure would have stood out wearing one of those to dinner, or walking down the street.
Neat watches and info, Mark.

I agree Duff. They're both nice but I am a fan of black dials myself.

I have one orange dial and one blue dial watch. The remainders are either black, silver or white. I personally can't see the fascination with colored dials, but that's just me.

I have an orange, blue, and a red at present. I have several Creme dials (Midos) that remind me of 1940s era watches. A few white but most are black.

I like colourzz, colourzz is purty.
