    Rolex Millgauss. It’s main feature is that it’s not affected by magnetic fields, which can royally screw with mechanical watch movements. Something about making the mainspring bind against itself. The lightning bolt is kinda a signature feature in this line.

    IIRC they used to be rare as the model was not extremely popular and got discontinued, then it got popular post-mortem so Rolex brought it back.

    I don't get it. The Orient Mako was tooling along roughly perfect. Yesterday up to 10 seconds fast and this morning 15 seconds. My one working Seiko 5 is almost the same. Meanwhile this Timex is easy to read and maybe -3 seconds in a month. [​IMG]

    Yes indeed. I think I'm far too pedantic to ever be truly happy with an automatic watch. I wanted a Seiko Solar Orange Diver in the worst way. At one time $150 would have gotten me one. Latest price since discontinued $255.
