    Great watch that Smiths Military, everyday practicality, military cred and simple understated elegance. Minus the product placement guff, I could imagine itís the sort of watch James Bond would wear.

    I love my vintage GMT-Master as it's a great design and beautifully made. I wouldn't buy a new Rolex though as I personally don't like the diamond encrusted follies they produce because to me it...

    The only watch of mine that gets commented upon by the general public is my GMT-Master, and that's only by petrol station cashiers and used-car salesman. i guess because of the aspirational nature of...

    Famous brand, simple & elegant design, rarity, a film connection, historic and a section of society with large amounts of disposable income. That's how I'd explain it.

    Like most of us I also do plenty of watch spotting. I don't comment though unless it's an interesting vintage or military watch. I once spoke to a guy on the tube who was wearing his great-grandad's...

    Apeks also do a nice diver with a Seiko movement, though at 41mm might be a shade too big:

    Just a thought, you could get a civvy Seiko Gen 2 or Pulsar Gen 1 if you like the military chrono look as well as a CWC Quartz RN Diver for the money. Best of both worlds?

    My parents bought me a 2000 just like yours Mitch as a graduation present in '93, except mine is the automatic version with an ETA movement I wore it for years, nice watches. I think it's in the...

    A classic, I love the matte dialled Rolexes, so much nicer than the shiny modern ones I think.

    I have a cuff style strap for my FAA Omega, it's surprising how much it seems to bulk it up. I got the idea watching "The Dambusters" as many of the aircrew actors had these cuff straps on their...

    My vintage watches are pretty reliable Rusty but I wouldn't wear them when cycling, fishing etc. as I just don't want them damaged. I guess that's when the homage wins out as I wouldn't mind if it...

    I think Longines has nailed it with their 6B/159 homage. No date window and it's simple uncluttered dial and correct looking crown look great. The only problem is you could get the real McCoy for the...

    Amazing watches, all the character of a vintage military watch but you take it anywhere without worry. It's my daily wearer for swimming, cycling etc.

    CWC seem to have gone from an offshoot of Silvermans to an independent watch company and moving up-market in their pricing. I like their watches, my G10 is still going strong after 10 years but I...

    Thanks for the photos and information gents.
    I think the Moeris is what I'll go for, but if a Reconvillier with those cathedral hands came up, I would be tempted!

    Hi folks,
    I'm thinking of getting an ATP next. At the moment, I like the look of the Moeris because it's size is relatively large and I like the Shockproof text on the dial that some of them have.

    Part of the character of the original is the Anti-Magnetique script on the dial. I'd rather have that than a date window, but I guess that's what the public demand.

    I wonder when they will do a...

    Thanks for your suggestions all.
    I'm thinking of an ATP to add to my collection as I want to follow the WW2 theme.
    An ADANAC Navigator or PRS-5 look tempting though!
