The smallish dial is making me lean towards a Searambler if I order one, the silver dial with the case could give it better balance.. I really liked the two 'Ramblers that I had (750T and 1200T)

I think it will work, just as it does with the vintage models.

I'm glad it's true to the original.
So many "re issues" being ruined by bigger proportions and tall shiny sides.

The deposit 500 bucks any one going to take the bait and get one ? Looking pretty close to the original in every way mite not be a bad watch..

....Yes I ordered one (orange)...probably will be two (sharky)....maybe even three (searambler).

1:1 reproduction had me sold immediately. This isn't too small;

The new one won't be either, in my opinion.

I'm going to have to get a Searambler. I've been getting emails, opening the preorder page on my phone every other day and visiting this thread. It's gonna happen.

The good news is if the Mrs. finds out and gets pissed off, you can have your unit reattached. Apparently they've been able to successfully do that surgery.

Yeah, I know! :excited: this time I'll definitely opt for the larger model.

Um, yes, maybe. :oops: fucker. :bird: But I have every intention of making good on said dibs, but none have been posted for sale here in recent memory. Half the watches is a bit much. Maybe a 1/16. I'll grant you that much.

Well the way things have been going lately, that is entirely possible. And it has nothing to do with watches or any other purchase.
