    I've been all-in on my Seiko Turtle (SRPC91) since it arrived. I can't believe how comfortable the cushion case + factory silicone strap make it to wear. :)

    Vostok SE 670454S "Albatross"

    Albatross was a 1980s Vostok anti-magnetic watch designed for but not adopted by the Soviet Navy (the Soviet Union having gone out of business). The original watch and this reissue have two casebacks; the inner one, made of soft iron, turns the case into a Faraday Cage. Albatross was intended for use around radar and other equipment generating strong electromagnetic fields.

    Rolex Milgauss, IWC Ingenieur, Eberhard Scientigraf, and Omega Railmaster are anti-magnetic watches better known to collectors. The Railmaster was a civilian market version of Omega Reference 2777-1, an anti-magnetic watch issued by the RAF. Like Albatross, it had a soft iron inner caseback. You can read about the RAF watch and see photographs here:
