Picked this up a while ago. Classic vintage diver. Love the name. Please excuse the crappy pics.

Big fan of those 60s-70s contract case pieces. Love that.

How soon you forget. You coined the term “doggy-Dick” for these hands, ‘member? :lol:

You are correct, T. That terminology was coined for the referenced Marathon.

The Mondaine's minute hand is a better example of a doggy dick. The Marathon JSAR has corndog hands.

Once upon a time long long ago I laughed while eating corn dogs. Laughed that stuff into my sinuses. Blew my nose and corn dog came out. Was a serious wtf moment.

Maybe as well, but you definitively described my Super Seawolf hands and “doggy Dick” :)

For some reason that reminds me of the old SNL skit - "It's a floor wax and a dessert topping."

Watch model is called "lobster". How does this relate to the diver lady in a bikini on the case-back?

Not sure. Mondaine also produced dive models named Marlin, Herring, and Gold Salmon among others. Life aquatic.
