These British Designed timepieces feature Sapphire Crystal on face and back. The design of the dial has been taken from the Thomas Ore clocks of the past, using roman numerals and similar hand designs to the original. All watches are stainless steel with stainless steel bracelets and are water resistant to 200 meters. Internals are Swiss Made Sellita Automatic Movements.

Does anyone else have interest in the Hamilton Khaki Field “Murph” from Interstellar. Seems like a great watch, but a little tough to swallow at nearly double the price of a regular khaki field.
I'm just not ready to admit that this watch is too big for me.
A quick bit of rough prototyping. That suede is soo warm and soft (my winter watch? haha), but I don't know how it'll hold up if I break a sweat.
A hybrid nato strap, if you will. If I want to stick with this concept, I'll have to lengthen the middle portion so that the rest of the strap conforms to my wrist (the lugs hold the pins pretty high) and then sew up most of the two cuts so it all keeps shape. Otherwise I could figure out a way to hold the watch down without such cuts.
Closer to what I'm getting at (I folded the side bits). Still need to come up with a simple closure.
Don't hold your breath, folks; I haven't lost my job, and my motivation for personal projects is ever an ebb and flow kind of thing.
p.s. Why does it take five clicks to upload a stinkin' picture?
Interesting article in Fratellow this morning discussing the Seiko SKX779 first generation Monster. Evidently it's become a collectable classic since Seiko killed it after a nearly twelve-year run. Most of you know by now it's certainly my favorite diver--I own a couple:
If memory serves, there's at least one guy around here with a really nice Orange first gen too, (the Orange dial is model SKX781). According to the article, the Orange version was the most popular of the two.
There are a couple of good links in the article; one discussing Seiko's most recently axed popular watches, and other that covers the entire range of Seiko Monsters from beginning to present. Spoiler alert: the most recent Monster looks suspiciously like the first one--go figure!
