I've been pretty pleased with the Certina I picked up a few months ago (GMT model). It's proven to be very accurate despite the lowered beat rate used to achieve the 80 hour power reserve.

I've not had an orange faced diver before, so while this looks a lot like my SPB053, I might give it a go when it is released.

Liking the look of this so far, but need to see a side profile - the original was a hefty thing.

I like it a lot with the orange dial. I may need to grab one though it’d compete with the Doxa

If I bought one, this would have to go; not sure it's worth doing - Sammy's wear great.

Certina makes some nice watches. Too bad they don't have any US dealers.

Can it get any cooler Paul?!! 8-) ..Seriously, the watch all by itself is
beautiful. ..Just that inner angled part of the bezel is the best, and
then you add in the orange dial?!! ..Too cool !! :headbang: :)

Thanks a lot for the look !

Is the GMT the same size as the PH500M? The PH500M looks like it's long lug-to-lug.

Looks good- I would like an orange dial at some stage. Pricing doesn't seem too outrageous either

Shame, I really like the look of the watch.

I actually scrolled up to see if it's the same watch. Very cool.

Where are you seeing that? When I use the store locator on Certina's web site 'United States' doesn't show up in the country selector.

These a button (at least on iPad) that says "my region".

It also referenced a service center in Culver City CA. I check what the name was.
