Picked this up mainly due to the original features, probably not everyone's liking but there are plenty of details to dazzle my some what simple brain :lol: Anyways, not a big fan of divers and this one does a good enough job to impress my wallet.

Thank you for viewing!

Very nice Aifo. Not sure about the plastic and metal bracelet, it would depend on the feel. What are the 5 minute markers on the bezel? Hard to tell if they are lume pips, or some sort of jewel insert. I certainly like the tool watch look.

Thanks JAG, I actually thought u would like it too when I was checking it out :lol: it's about trident price ~GBP 300. Let me know if u are tempted :lol:

Lavaine, agree on the strap issue, if it does't kind of matching the stamp dial I would have pass on this. The little dots on the bezel 5 min markers are screws/steel inserts with no lum except the 12 o'clock one.
