Welcome to the forum. The SAR and U1 are both great watches and pretty rare to see in the wild.

Yup, that was me. Thanks Terry. I’ll be hitting you up for a 20mm Shiznit soon. I’ve got a couple in 22 for the U1, well deserving of their namesake.

Just a heads up on that Marathon. They changed some things on the case on the later models after 06'. So they said parts will not interchange on the older ones and they do not carry them.

Tony Luke is one of the best but since I’m working in West Philly near U Penn, Abner’s is the go-to when i need a fix.

I’ve had better elsewhere too, but between Pat’s & Geno’s, it’s always Geno’s. They openly support law enforcement too, making the sandwich taste all the better.

If you're in Rittenhouse, Clevers has a good cheesesteak. Otherwise, I'm a Gino's and Tony Luke kinda person. Working in Center City has perks :grin:

Oh and if you want real water ice, Pop's on Oregon Ave in South Philly is the only place to go :drool:
