There is so much to like about it when you think about it too Contra !

You have a timeless design overall that you can never get tired of. An
easy to read, and almost vintage looking dial. Bold, yet still traditional
looking bezel, along with nice bracelet. Followed by automatic movement
as the cherry on top. ..It's the perfect first automatic !

Hope it gets a lot of wrist time, and you keep on enjoying !!!

Put it on a Bond Nato, looks nicer and wears infinitely more comfortable. The Seiko NH35 movement in it is outstanding, mine runs from +2 to +4 seconds fast a day, as good as my Rolex ever ran.

The bezel on this watch (I own the same model) is a scalloped bezel, which is more like what you would see on an Omega Seamaster, it takes enough of the Sub Clone look out of it to make it more interesting to me.

Bracelet man myself. I think NATO's suck. I think he's old enough to make his own decisions.

Thanks very very much for the information, as well as lesson sir.

Think it really does change up the look, and help separate it from so
many other watches. Love how even though it seems like such a small
detail to change, it ends up making a big difference actually Chaz.

Really does grab your eye, and make it more interesting like you said !

Right off the truck Contra. Pro Diver Paracord w/NH35A and no Invicta chiseled into the side. Loving it already.

Not keen on the paracord but that is a good looking diver, always a bonus not to have anything etched on the side.

Nice looking watch that one, very un-Invicta looking.

But seriously, you don't like Nato straps but like Bungie cords around your wrist

C'mon Chaz... The paracord is at least 4x thicker than your average NATO strap. Yes, it is more comfortable.
