Prospector ~ That Was Great!
They keep GREAT time.
The only thing I didn't about the one that I had was that I scratched the face up too easily. But it was an accurate watch.
Seiko Divers: Japanese Rolex
I've worn the same Seiko Diver's Model since 1981. Bought it at the PX then for $110. It's been dropped out of helicopters, quarter-tons and tanks. It's taken me thru the jungles of Panama and I'm wearing it right now. I have to change the rubber wrist band ever year or so as they get sun damaged and crack. Runs just fine. I have a Rolex I inherited from my dad. He bought it in 1955 I think. It's plain-Jane looks like a steel cased timex. THAT baby took me thru the rigors of the Infantry Officers Basic Course at Fort Benning, GA in 1980, before I got the Seiko. Hated to take an heirloom to the woods. My Seiko is an old "self winder" winds by the movement of the body. I remember once, cutting a cord of wood with a chainsaw and wondering if I was winding the dang thing for the next century! LOL
