    FWIW, I work in the same building as a lot of current and former Navy pilots. They all seem to wear the Casio G-Shock digitals. I've never spotted a single IWC.

    all I ever saw at Ft. Bragg was G-shocks and the odd Timex dive watch

    Historically, for sure. I know the WW2 era fleigers were something like 55mm. I wonder how many modern-era pilots rely on a wristwatch now. I'm assuming that it's all in the plane now, and watches are well down the list of back-ups.

    Bob Wingate is great to deal with, I sold him a collection of watches and he was very fair.

    I have a thing for Sinn. Not something you will see at the mall jewelry store. Most offerings have the rugged functionality I admire and covet but will never require. Not part of the Swatch conglomerate (Tissot, Longines, Glashütte, Breguet, Blancpain, Omega, Tiffany and perhaps a dozen others)

    The Sinn Arktis is speaking to me right now.
