    I think the Marathon SAR series are a great value in a tool watch.

    I like that 856s. Wouldn't begin to know where to find one though.

    Nice Omegas. I had a GMT identical to yours, I loved it very much. But it never ran right, kept stopping, sent it to the factory and they couldn't get it running. So I traded it for the blue Seamaster like your other one. It runs great.

    Rob,

    Try WatchBuys at www.watchbuys.com. They are the sole authorized dealer for Sinn watches in the US. I bought my EZM3 from the 2 months ago & love it.

    BTW, Sinn announced a price increase for September 1 so move quickly.

    Rob,

    Save your money and get a MONSTER!

    Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear.

    This thread has been responsible for a bit of a paradigm shift for me. I'm not a watch guy, never really have been. But the more I think about it, the more I appreciate the work that goes into a fine automatic watch. To use a similie that was espoused by our illustrious Admin, they're like a good 1911, while a good quartz plastic watch (aka, a G-Shock) is like a Glock. Both have good points and bad points. All I've ever had are various plastic watches. They could do a lot, but all I really want to be able to do is tell time. Hence, I abandoned the watch for a few years to the clock in my cell phone.

    Having read a few things here and there, I have set myself on a path to pick up a few things. My baseline is a Rolex Submariner. Great style, but I doubt I will ever be able to rationalize spending that much on a watch. I'm after a classic face, stainless bracelet (leather, rubber or nylon just don't cut it for me), and a reliable movement so I won't have to take it in for service all the damn time.

    For now:
    - Steinhart Ocean 1 blue/blue 42mm.
    - Sandoz (Hong Kong) Sub black/black

    Soon:
    - Sandoz Sub (Singapore) white/satin
    - Seiko diver with sword hands on a super oyster bracelet

    Down the road:
    - Omega Seamaster of some flavor
    - a MkII customized Seiko of some flavor
    - a chrono of some sort

Not sure what exactly they do to the stock movement besides the red rotor and some polishing, but it looks pretty enough through the case window.

    Watches are a funny thing... you have the super accurate, cheap, durable quartz movements that get the job done better than almost any automatic, but yet they just don't have the "personality" of a mechanical watch. Sort of a Glock/1911 thing

    I like their TT1 diver.

    www.friendsoforis.com is an Australian mail order supplier with great prices and service.

    I really like the omega seamaster, but for work I have been considering the Chase Durer UDT.
