The design of those hands and markers on the Pontiac remind me of a vintage Zenith, this isn’t my photo (I’ve borrowed it from a quick google search) but it shows what I mean.

I love this every time it makes an appearance. That curve looks like it was made to measure :D

Thanks. The past 2 years, I've had little opportunity to wear it, and I'm glad it's now back on the roster.

And the curve definitely follows my wrist:

Great Pontiac.

IIRC they had diver pressure tested up to 200 m sans screw down crown. Only intricate crown Design and gaskets. Hydraulica I think.

Loving these TV dial Omegas. I’ve come close in the past to buying one, this run isn’t helping. :lol: So far I think my favorite is the green dialed Constellation. :thumbup:
Time and money? I’ve spent most of mine on booze and women. The rest I just wasted…
