We buy what we like and what we can afford. I'd rock one of these if I had the coin.
Nice looking watch, Chaz, congrats on the acquisition.
"Poor Man's Aquaterra" to me is a fair term, it looks almost as nice and similar to the Omega Aquaterra, but at 1/6th of the price!

The one I have, the Chronometer Quartz, is $298 at Jomashop right now!

As soon as that happens, the Blue dial will be on the way to my house!
