    I wear this watch by a French company called MAT Watches. Stands for Mer Air Terre..... which of course means sea air land. They are hand made, mechanical drive timepieces with a price point in the middle for a quality unit you can wear all day.

    They specialize in custom runs and the Naval Aviator version I wear was designed by a good friend of mine. They have made runs for all kinds of special forces such as French Foreign Legion, US Secret Service, several first responder outfits worldwide, and even an Ed Force One version for Iron Maiden.

    Here’s a pic at dinner in Paris with the owner Fabrice (right), my buddy who designed the Naval version (second from left), and Bruce Dickinson (second from right), who detests cowbell IRL. Fabrice is kind enough to partly sponsor my race car in Baja.

          For sure! If we win, it will definitely be "beer(singular) on me!" ..and a tap beer at that... and domestic... like the cheapest one!

            The YouTube reviews in foreign languages are always the most helpful. :thumbup:

            That is a beautiful watch with nice specs. Very sleek. But no Seamaster. NV has you beat! :lol:

            Here is my "collection", such as it is:

            Breitling Avenger Seawolf Titanium Yellow

            [​IMG]



            Seiko Sportura Solar Chronograph Black Dial Stainless Steel

            [​IMG]



            G-Shock Rangeman GW-9400

            [​IMG]



            I find myself weakening and perhaps planning a relatively inexpensive addition before the Seamaster. I am hoping I come to my senses, because I really should NOT be spending any money.

            They are, in no particular order:

            Oris Aquis Date Automatic Green Dial

            Sinn 104 I St Sa B on Fine Link Bracelet

            Sinn U1 on Bracelet or U1 B (Blue)
