I know Omega fans already probably know about these. Am still learning about watches like these though.

Just stumbled on this neat article over at Wound for Life today about the 145.023 Seamasters from the 1970's nicknamed the Anakin Skywalker, and Darth Vader. Evidently the cases with their polished silver, and tungsten finishes, along with their beautiful dials help give the watches their nicknames. The large size, along with caliber 861 seem ultra cool as well.

Here is the article for you guys...

Those two look amazing. The polished silver version reminds me of a Rado Diastar dive version, which is pretty cool looking. Thanks for sharing, Tom!

Cool read!! Imagine how large these watches must have looked at 44 mm back when 40mm was a big watch
