This is the first Hamilton I've liked immediately in a long time. The Ltd Ed aspect is a great whole package concept. Why do I like it? I'll take a cue from Ariel when he is gushing about Hublot and can't explain his affection: "it's cool, it's very cool" ;-)

I'm really disappointed that it's cork ! At first I thought it was a patina of rust, that would be very nice... a rusty Sea Dweller, very appropriate. Rust would be clearcoat sealed of course.... I'd buy it.

Orient makes a nice product that is not too generic but does have a broadbase appeal. Though "dress" watch has become a bit passe, as a description since a suit and tie or even a tuxedo has been worn with almost any watch of late.

the extra leather under the watch strap is for protecting the watch while working where the watch may get damaged by dirt or debris... as the leather breaks in (gets wet) it becomes more supple and the protector can be rotated with one hand to cover the face. I have a few watches that have this original type leather fixing; mostly a feature from WW1 and early motorcycling. Triumph even offers a watch now with this feature and it does save your watch especially if you like moderately off road trails like I do. It is ok for a "faked" vintage STYLE but it is still a large target and way to pricey....

In the Websters dictionary, right next to "Generic Dive Watch" definition theres a picture of a Titoni...Seascoper. Exactly what is a Seascoper? price is about $600USD too high.

@emenezes @CG  hmmm did I mention F1? Nope.... "actually" F1 did use belts until rpm started to push above 12.5K then failures started but since belts are used on 99.99999% of mass produced cars it is absolutely a viable technology. That said; comparing F1/Indy Car technology to even mainstream car industry is apples to oranges... reading the F1 tech rules will show you that immediately. Back to the watch! Belt use in this watch, given the right materials, as I stated, should never be a problem.

in most mechanical operations belts have supplanted chains across the board; starting with a fiber reinforced matrix in the early days. Now you have all types of belts utilizing some very high tech materials and manufacturing processes. I don't see this watch as having high stress problems from heat, chemicals and high rpm so a belt made of proper materials should last a lifetime. The watch does suffer from it's blackness making it almost useless... maybe some tasteful color anodizing of background surfaces would help.... say maybe the old Gulf Racing Team colors.

Orange color accents? Where? Orange should be bold and bright; orange imparts a serious technical ethos... but not on this watch, maybe it's the photo but it seems very muted. Price and style are definite winners.

Not "stickers" but usually an enameled and or engraved glued on metal plaque, very typical of Tissot. Don't forget Tissot is also Official Timer of MotoGp. They make very comprehensive ltd editions for MotoGp that are very well executed with racing motifs, rider linked, track linked, and a great display box; a half size helmet! They know their market well. And make good dependable watches in both quartz and auto in their ltd edition range.

Really too bad the pricing takes it well out of the realm of affordability for many historic aviation buffs. Worthwhile cause behind it's sale though....  if any of you are ever in Dayton, OH and love aviation the US Air Force National Museum is really something to see along with all the Wright Brothers history.... It takes a good three days to see it all correctly! I go every year since exhibits constantly change or expand.  "Gentlemen" flyers seems to be the elitist market for this, there should be a version sans fabric that could sell at a higher volume and bring in a lot more cash for the cause.

The Art of the Jeweler combined with the Art of the Watchmaker... some of the great names in jewelry making have always incorporated great watchmakers. A time honored tradition and to appeal to the lovely feminine form. Extravagant ...yes. Bet you've never seen a Harry Winston diamond broche/watch. The fine jewelers use only the best diamonds that you can see across the room! Their art is truly unique and quite beautiful. And the "feminine form" can also be quite beautiful... can't forget the complimentary nature of the two!

@MarkCarson  hmmmm something on your mind there Mark? Didn't see till you told me! Damn you....  now I'll see stuff all day! Bought the Kinetic when it first came out years ago . Well out of warranty the capacitor bit the dust and Seiko replaced it for free... nice of them! Kinetics were really noisy in the beginning. This Seiko looks quite good and since most serious divers travel thru different time zones to dive, the watch is dual use..... and women may buy it more than men and not know why!

Oris has always made mostly conservative pleasing watches...  almost non-descript some of them. `This one is almost there, what saves it for me is the subtle blending of watch with METAL band ..... looks very simple yet modern. The coin edge I suppose is an homage to the original Big Crown stylistically... the face looks much wider that 44mm making it very readable at a glance... great clarity in the numbers and markers.... is it an illusion that the depth in the case to the watch face is shallower than average? Makes it seem wider that way.... pricey for an Oris, though they did almost double pricing on some versions last year or so.... A nice classic Oris always cost between 1.5K and 2.5K and pricing varied wildly from dealer to dealer.... Oris was even being sold by Macy's but they pulled out for whatever reason.
