I have always liked the icy blue dial on rolexes. The Brown totally pops it, if only it was a Steel model that I could afford...

@JjCruz The stroke is to a 3.2. You use the driveshaft from a early 80's diesel Maxima. Personally I would stick with the dual SU's as with the right needles work just fine. If you want to change it, go with a FI ITB setup, as it is not much more then going with Mikuni's.

Welcome to Diving...
But alas Nitrox aka Oxygen enhanced diving or what you refer to as Oxygen/Nitrogen mixtures are purely for shallow water diving due to Oxygen toxicity. They allow for less Nitrogen loading while diving making shallow diving safer, and or extending bottom time in dives typically less then 80 feet.Deep Sat diving generally uses Tri-Mix, or Helium, oxygen, and nitrogen. The deeper you go the less oxygen and nitrogen you want to prevent Nitrogen Narcosis or Oxygen toxicity. The funny think about Helium escape valves is they are no longer needed. Back in the day Deep Sat divers filled their dry suits with Helium, and that Helium under pressure would work into the watch, and if not released would spring out the glass on the watch. This was due to Helium leaking in slowly as it is a smaller molecule then Water. Today deep sat divers generally use Argon as the drysuit filler as it is much much cheaper, and does not have the nasty side effect of quickly removing heat from the body. Helium conducts heat 6 times more efficiently then air, and argon 2 x less efficiently then air... Which brings up the point that Helium escape valves are not needed.
Now why would you need an He escape valve... For the few deep sat divers that would be entering a diving bell at depth with a Tri-Mix atmosphere, as otherwise the watch is on the outside of the suit anyway and would only be exposed to water.
Again welcome to diving it is a great and fun sport, and remember to always be learning, it will keep you safe, and make diving that much more fun!
I've been doing it for 12 years, and worked up into the DM program.

Good call on the porterfields... I assume r4s pads. I am in love with them on my street/track e46m3

@Kris C @CG @PhilMaurer Your doing hardcore decompression, tri-mix, with staged safety divers, diving at depths less then 200 people in the world do, and you have never dove at night?

@Kris C @PhilMaurer
Considering the Max depth for a technical diver is 330ft(100M.) No I am not.... Are you confusing feet for meters? Notice this watch has a marking at 30 meters the max safe for rec diving? 100M is the max, but if you where diving that deep you would be on another watch anyway.
@Kris C How did you dive over 500 feet and live to tell the tale?
@hanablemooreUnder that reasoning the AMG SLS is not German and is in fact American... Since the car is basically what the 2nd gen viper was supposed to be (chassis/gearbox/suspension,) just with an AMG motor. MB took it with them after the MB/Dodge split.
3 months, 3 weeks ago on POLL: VIPER VS. VETTE
Probst said that about the old Viper...
On the other hand the Vipers that race against the c6r are cars and engines as they left the factory with some modifications. The C6R only shares the roof panel and has an engine loosely based on the LS but fully custom cast....
So which makes a better race car?
Mix of online, and B&M. High end I hit the B&M so I can see it, lower end via the internet.

Nice car E. Michael Maximilien with e9X M3 with a Fox Red interior? My orange Planet Ocean Chrono matches my Cinnamon e46 M3...I actually like your shots, the watch looks much better in the real world, then staged shots.

Pretty watches, but why oh why are they Quartz movements in $1000 plus watches? Eta movements are around $300-400 bucks retail for a chrono movement. Bulk would be even cheaper... I would seriously pay 400 more for this if it was an automatic.

Generally I prefer a watch from a known brand, the exception is Rolex, which to me is just way to common. If your going to pay for a nice watch I kinda prefer that even non watch people have at least a small awareness of a brand. Most people in the US cannot spot a well made watch from a unknown brand vs a cheap quartz watch.I do really like the look of this watch though.

DK I think someone got it for him, as it said Nixon on it. Not myfav of theirs, and I own 4 of them, alas almost all are retired, and getlots of compliments on them. The Don/The Banks/Big Rig/The Duke. Wellmade and the The Banks is a very nice watch if you need dual timezone... Big but not huge, esp with 3 movements in it! The brushed,plus polished SS on teh bracelet really pops the watch in person. http://www.nixon.com/mens/watches/the-banks-a060.html?sku=A060510-00As for the first debate, I think he was wearing a POW/MIA bracelet

Bell and Ross make a speedmaster! Seriously it is just the old Speedmaster movement minus the co-axial part, updated to 2 subdials.The Question on this watch is, would you buy this or the Speedmaster? I personally prefer the 3 subdials on Omega watches hence my recent purchase of the "older" Planet Ocean Chrono with 3 subs, not the newer 2 subdial watch(which is also alot thicker! and rides way to high on my wrist)I do however respect both Sinn and B&R for the cleaner looking watch faces. I do surprisingly like this watch, I just wish it had a rotating 24 hour GMT bezel. Of all the 126 watches the Bezel really pops this watch. I would seriously consider this watch if it had a rotating 24 hour gmt bezel...So the question is... Get the older 3 subdial Speedy? Get the newer 2 subdial speedy with a co-axial movement, or get this watch, which while beautiful is slightly hampered by the lack of a rotating bezel, which I feel is a must in a tool type watch.

The Atalanta crash clearly shows the 911 driver at fault. He went wide put 2 wheels into the grass and over corrected outside of his normal line. The Delta wing clearly had the ability and speed to pass on the inside there and the 911 made the mistake, there is no issue about visibility of the delta wing in this case. The 911 was clearly at fault.The Le Mans crash was a different story, the LMP cars have bad vis to begin with and the black paint plus odd proportions obviously contributed to that crash.I think they should remove the black paint to something brighter, and there will be few issues. In a mixed class race other drivers will be aware of passing traffic more and should notice the DW comming up.

Awseome review!! Love the Marvin cushion, I still debate picking on up, I just want to see it on my arm before I buy, and there are no local dealers.
I am looking to mod a skx007 also do you have any resources for that?
