    I think I may just have fallen in love. Could you share the model? Can't seem to find it online.

    Ben: It's a Rotary, model GS00100/04/BRN(13685) Aquaspeed.
    It's not easy to find on market. In fact, I bought the watch during a flight (duty free on board sale). The brand's (Rotary) headquarters are in London if I am not wrong. Good luck. I loved the watch, hopefully you will find it.

    Seems quite common now actually albeit a more updated model with black inner dials. Not expensive either. It looks like the Breitling I've always wanted but could never afford. :D

    That's true. It looks like the Breiting. Mine has a slide rule has worked perfectly fine and should cost between $150 - $200. Rotary announces different series of beautiful watches on their website. Good luck with your search.

    They're selling this replacement for about $70 on the web, doesn't have as nice a strap though. Not that this is a big deal.

    The annoying thing is that I have a really nice titanium Seiko chrnongraph (SND419) that I like a lot but the chronograph stopped working after I had a nasty fall in the snow (shards of glass got into the mechanism) and the repair with new glass is about the same as a new watch. At least comparing new prices on amazon to UK repair. I assume US repair is cheaper. Should check it out. Might make more sense.

    My one and only Chrono;

    Citizen Eco Drive AT0200-05E

    I'd Really LOVE an automatic/self winding mechanical Chrono, but thats a movement complication that looks like it always puts them in the 4 digit price range instead of 3 digits... can't do it in the foreseeable future. :(

    Not quite my only chrono (I've a vintage valjoux) by close. Doesn't get near enough wrist time. Sorry the pic isn't more head on, it was taken to show off a detail in the strap (a custom of real gator to replace the fake gator the watch shipped with -- Jeanna @ Stone Creek Straps does INCREDIBLE work).

    The watch is a Hamilton Pan Europ 1971 LE

    Traser gets the most wrist time, easiest to read day or night for my 54-year-old eyes.
