Great write up Matt, and nice pics too.

Love the watch, although the only thing that put me off a bit was the non crown side shot. Not sure why...maybe seemed a bit Oris looking from that angle.

The overall design and specs are a grand slam though. :cheers:

You're on a roll Wu, both with the watches and with the reviews. That is a sweet time keeper for sure.

Me too, initially at the AD with the NSA. From a distance, it's a little boring from the "you" side of the watch on the wrist. But upon closer inspection, you begin to notice the contrast between polished bevels and edges and brushed sides, and you're re-assured it isn't just a plain, extruded case.

Kinda similar to the new IWC Aquatimer for me - in pictures I was unimpressed. In person, it's much more respectable.

As I asked my wife to bring 5 packages to the post office for me on Monday she asked "so what is going to replace these?". I told her nothing yet but that my next purchase might have to wait as it could be big and be another JLC.
I know a guy who can do a good deal. You can have another big, Ti watch as a California cousin to your SEAL. :shifty:

Too much leg (and pink shorts), not enough crotch in there, Todd. :roll:

Seriously though, I'd love to try out one of these articulated rubber bracelets sometime. The Ti bracelet is really nice though.

Super bad ass watch and write up, Matt. Love the side profile shots of the watch... had no idea how substantial it was from the side. I really dig the matt.wu mark on the bezel at the 35 minute zone as well. Nice touch! ;)

Bro, you have indeed been picking up some heavy hitters lately. You are the official west coast super baller! :headbang:

I have to say... although the rubber coated bracelets are super nice... that thing looks incredible on the Ti bracelet. I love the look and the way it all works together. :cheers:

That has to be one of the coolest dive watches/watches period... available today.

:thumbsup:

Not sure why we are bumping old posts, but this one was worth the read. Although I'd never wear anything with a huge Trident engraved on it, this watch is 100% bad ass...

I assume any bumped thread around here older than 6 months old means the OP no longer has the watch. I'm not falling for them.

My thoughts still stand on this one, and it's far more affordable these days.

I'd love to find another...

Sorry, guys. It got bumped by a spammer and I didn't want to delete positive comments from Wayne and Chris.
