While not the style I was looking for it has all the features I was looking for and looks nice.

Thanks, just ordered one. $475 OTD




If anybody wants my Steinhart Ocean 1 GMT "Pepsi" before it goes on ebay please contact me ($500 including PP and shipping). Watch was bought new in November directly from Steinhart includes box and everything. I don't have enough posts here to do a for sale thread. That little white spot by the "S" is just dust.

Darn, I'm late jumping into this one. Sounds like you're set: that Orient looks fantastic!

But just to throw in my two cents after the fact, Hamilton makes some cool GMTs, although you would've had to stretch a bit farther above your price range, but not to an outrageous degree. Here's my fav:

Orient Star Seeker GMT came today. I think I like it. It's a little dressier than I was looking for but I think it will work. Kinda cool winding it and watching the power indicator go up.

Like that. Looks good on your wrist. Very nice pair (haven't said that out loud without getting slapped, before).

Priapism (or whattever)
Wish my issues could be condensed down to reading comprehension.
Nuns at my elem school used a dowel rod on my hands to solve that
issue. They gotta way with Corporal Punishment big time. My paw sez
"it's ok to beat the crap outta him, he probably needed it".

GMT. Never needed one. I'm only interest in the time where I'm at. Go
figure.

This Seiko Kinetic Tuna GMT has your problem solved, even if there is none.

The GMT function on this one is a True GMT function, the hour hand can jump forward or backwards to adjust to a different time zone you are traveling to without having to hack the minute and seconds hands.

The actual GMT hand stays fixed at your home time zone, not the other way around with most GMT watches.

You make like this GMT jump hand is all that and a bag of chips. The Invicta I posted earlier in this thread has it. For about $400 bucks less than that Tuna.

Since your "Invicta" costs $150 as you stated, and my Kinetic Tuna costs $363 on Amazon, I don't know where you get this "$400 less" from?

When it comes down to a choice between an Invicta or a Seiko, Seiko wins hands down every time in my book!
