    Thanks Baron83!

    It’s been my only daily for the last decade. Used to be my late father-in-laws’. Went back to Omega for a spa treatment at first. Cost a fair bit of dough $$$ to have it put right, and I have it tuned every couple of years, but worth it. Close to chronometer accurate.

    I love that it’s an automatic.

    Received the same watch for Christmas, but with the blue leather strap instead of the bracelet. It’s a fantastic looking watch.

    Here it is. Been on my wrist for a few days. It’s actually one of three I received as gifts, this Promaster, an Original Grain Brewmaster, and a kit to build my own. Wife also received a nice Tissot.


    Blue dial shows up much better in your pic...

    This is a thread for posting photographs, since even (for example) my amateur photos are better than manufacturers' stock photos and eBay sellers' photos. So I try not to get chatty here, but in case someone doesn't know, I'm adding a note about this watch's extra hand.

    This is a poor man's GMT or traveler's watch, designed to show the time in two time zones at a glance. The hand with the pointed white tip is a half-speed hour hand making one rotation in 24 hours. The 24 hour bezel under the crystal is rotated by the crown at 8 o'clock. I'm using this to show the time in Guangzhou, where my step-son works. Under daylight saving time, Guangzhou is 14 hours ahead of Chicago, where I live: so I rotated the bezel until 14 was at the top of the dial. The photo was taken January 7th at 8:22 PM, and the white-pointed GMT hand shows the time in Guangzhou as 10:22 AM, January 8.

    Nice! Always liked the clean face and lines of many of the Sinn pieces!

    Typical Russian leather strap. What do you expect on a $40 mechanical watch?

    The dial graphic is a Cosmonaut flight badge from the old Soviet Space Program. The diamond at the bottom showed the number of missions flown, so this represents a novice's wings.

    I picked up the Protrek PRW 50 recently and love it. It has all the same features as my mudmaster but is a lot slimmer on the wrist. I found this one after really falling for "field watches" and this has that look with the extra protrek features.
