Nice!!

Hehe, it looks like someone took a Vostok Amphibia "ministry case" (710) and joined it to a morphed Steinhart watch face.

A rather handsome watch :)

It's an almost 1 to 1 copy of the vintage (oh, how I hate that word :)) original. 2 mm bigger case (from 36 mm) and (thankfully) no cyclops on the sapphire crystal that wasn't there in 1970 of course. So it's propably the other way around ;). Resco Instruments also did their version of the 'Hooper' watch (and the called it the 'Hooper') but it's even bigger and with more moders materials. And 30% more expensive.

Certainly there is not a thing "hideous" about that one. Absolutely killer. Nice pick up Frans.

Very cool. Have you experimented with oh, let's say a tropic strap?
Not yet (I'm too infatuated with that bracelet right now :). And that while I'm more of a strap guy). But I'll slap it on a Tropic strap soon. Not a genuine Tropic strap because they are horribly expensive ($100 or so) but I think I have a clone that fits.

Bracelet:



Or strap?

That funky bracelet has a certain bow-chicka-wowwow that rocks, but the strap's tight, I'd go strapped.
It's great you can mix it up.

It'll be 80% bracelet, 20% strap. As mentioned before I'm a strap guy but somehow this bracelet just fits the watch like a glove. I borrowed the strap from another watch and ordered another one. Thanks for you comments!

Strap makes it look nice to my eye, pops better off the wrist, makes it look visually lighter as well.
