Great job on the article and, again, great job on the watch. I'll get into some belt-fed weapon systems in the next week or so but as far as above ground "work" goes with this thing: it's badass and not missing a beat.

I've had more compliments and questions about this watch than any I've ever owned before. I love it.

That's what I like to hear. I wanted this to be a watch you looked forward to putting on every day and didn't want to take off just because you were at work.

Great article. I love the fact that you can tell what time it is in all of these photos. Such a legible watch.

I'm curious, does the U2's case have any differences other than the domed crystal, to give it it's 2,000m WR?

The problem is there should be a special hoodwink-only price in the five figures. Then they'd sell out in seconds.

^^^ Just about the dumbest comment I've ever heard. Nothing about the U1-P suggests Bathyscaphe. :banghead:

Maybe he is talking about the hand shape, which were on the U1 since 2005.

It's Hodinkee. I'm sure it's ironic.

Cool right up for a cool watch, regardless of Flapmaster's comment.
