    Another "I stumbled onto this, while looking for something else." I really like the "GMT" model. Now if they could only do a diver bezel, the rest of the package looks very sharp and at 39.5mm should be a good break from monster divers.

    The GMT is fun.

      There's a GMT model? I only saw a pair of 3-handers with date.

        "GMT" the simple version with 1-12 around the bezel.

            It wouldn't be my first thought either when thinking of a GMT

              Kevin, I still wouldn't call it a GMT. In fact, I'm a bit disappointed. I've had several O&W watches and these don't give me the vibe of quality those did. I'm afraid that, to me, these are just three handers with different cosmetic treatments.

                I agree. The soul of the old O&Ws isn't readily apparent in these.

                  Do you guys think it is the more precise tolerances from CNC machining etc that gives these newer models no the same feel? I've only ever seen NOS or vintage O&W watches. They usually have a "less crisp" look to them, be it from intention or from use. I think even the NOS stock one's I've seen don't look as sharp (sharp as in cutting, like you could cut a tomato with).

                    This one sold for $350 recently on eBay.
                    It has the vintage vibe I dig.
