    You have very nice gear and I really appreciate your unusual items such as the screw driver and charger.
    I also love getting to see the original manuals you have included. Nice!

    HF’s Davosa Argonautic GMT • SHORT REVIEW, EXPERIENCE & THOUGHTS …
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    INTRO & BRIEF
    I’ve had and used my Davosa - Argonautic Dual Time PVD - Reference: 161.512.80 since Jan 2014. It was purchased new from the USA Distributor /Authorized Dealer at the time.
    Davosa’s website - [https://www.davosa.com/] - German & English

    It is rated at 300m / 1,000ft water resistance and as the following vid shows should be OK in space.
    In short, it has been reliable, the parent company and US distributor (in 2014) have both been great to deal with, see following and it can easily accomodate my requirements above and below sea level.


    PROS
    Keeps good time for a mechanical watch.
    Bezel alignment and action are excellent. Has 120 calibrated position so accommodates use for second timezone and general time keeping. This is not the case with my Rolex GMT Master II Batman which has a 24 position bezel.
    The bezel is my most used and favourite horological complication and this one is easy to use in and out of the water or with gloves.
    Can handle up to three timezones (Via hour hand, GMT hand and bezel). I’ve used this often when in airport transit.
    Has a well known ETA movement (ETA 2893-2) with quickset date and GMT.
    Black PVD finish has been very durable. There is also a plain SS finish version but I’ve no experience with it.
    The metal bracelet is comfortable and very well finished. The clasp works well and securely.
    Lume performance is excellent. Here’s an old pic of mine …

    CONS
    From what I can see it’s not as easy as other watches to purchase through conventional channels.

    EXPERIENCE & THOUGHTS
    Since purchase it has had more than one extended summer at the beach and been regularly and extensively used for swimming and non scuba snorkel diving.
    It gets used with original PVD bracelet and Davosa Argonautic nylon Nato strap black grey white and also a black leather band - Colareb Venezia. There are numerous pics of the watch with those different bands elsewhere in this thread (just search Davosa).
    US Dealer was hassle free and provided specific time trace and adjusted band before sending the watch to me.
    The watch has been back to davosa in Vlotho Germany. I had clouted the ceramic bezel and only scratched the main 12 marker. Davosa fixed it for free. I just paid initial postage.
    It is not a dainty light watch. Although comfortable, it has some substance. This can be a pro or con depending on one’s POV.

    HF's EDC Storage 150619
    I needed some volume so mostly use a couple of these no colour jobs and have been doing so now for quite some years.

    Here’s an example of one top drawer stuffed with making edges sharp gear …

    I’ve also made some work tops and effectively use them as a light bench.
