I like it ... it seems strangely familiar ... maybe put it on an undersized NATO?

I looked at the link. So this watch has a different, not ugly second hand, the bi-directional bezel, and some sort of gun thing on one of the strap holders, and nothing else? If so, this is easily the best bond watch they've ever released. I'm glad someone realized those horrible older models weren't doing anyone any good.

The stupid 21mm lug width all but ensures that at least a few of these will see time on a too-small nato.

He's also a gun hating pacifist who doesn't know how to drive a stick.

Omega experts, did Omega ever have a second hand like this? Or is this a rip off of the original submariner configuration?
Note the second hand on my 6205.

The late 50's speedmasters had what was considered the "lollipop" seconds hand also.

That makes me like this watch even more. Anyone know the price? This seems like the version to get if you don't want the (not very attractive) bracelet.

I read somewhere that it was going to be around $6400, but I don't think the price has been officially released yet.

That seems expensive without the bracelet, but it's probably a $4,000 watch slightly used, which is a lot of watch for the money.
