    Really? Hmmmm do you have a TSAR or SAR?

    Mine is solid to the end of where it winds out to, but once i pop it all the way out as if I'm gonna set the time, there is a bit of play...

    Seriously, it really has that tough as nails look. I am glad that yours has a bit of wiggle too. I was a bit paranoid. The whole thing, the crowns texture.. LOVE IT!


    I assume I should take the band in the get links taken out? Or is something where I just turn the screws?

    Does yours have the little bubble over the date? If so it's a SAR...automatic...

    Sorry. I get confused.. cause on the site I ordered from it just says "SAR". Not sure what the "T" changes.

    The "T" signifies Tritium for it's lume....the two watches are actually quite different in all aspects....

    You can go to countycomm to see all the Marathon models - they have some excellent pics...
    I wish I could afford one of each....SAR, TSAR, GSAR, CSAR.....oh well....

    Thanks LZ! I will check out the difference. For me, I am really happy with the watch I chose. I liked it the most aesthetically, and thats all that really mattered for me to be honest. I can't see wanting the full line of Marathon watches.

    GSAR.. same but automatic?

    And the little hazard symbol by 3 o'clock.. cause the tritium?
