    Great looking watch, and hooded lugs are the ONLY way to go in my opinion for a mesh style bracelet.

    Looks great, nice thick mesh bracelet and enough contrast from color and dial design with the SHOM to make it really nice.

The only problem is the keeper doesn't stay put. So, it moves and the bracelet end flops around. That drove me nuts, so I used a piece of velcro with a sticky backing. I used the loop side of the velcro, not the hook side. I cut a tiny sliver of it to stick it to the inside of the keeper. That keeps it from moving and solved the problem. Now, I am happier.

    Spinnaker makes some cool pieces - the watches are usually named for pioneers in diving (which I find cool) and they are well made. I've owned this one, also, the Bradner with the rice bead bracelet and internal bezel. That one has an issue with a non-screw down crown for the internal bezel. The problem is the crown is not tight and sometimes the bezel gets misaligned through contact with sleeves or anything. I still love the watch, but it's annoying. A screw down crown would totally solve the problem.

    This watch, the Dumas, which is inspired by the Omega SHOM, really is nice. Now that I've remedied the bracelet keeper issue, I like it a lot more. It's a lot of watch for the discounted sale price of $300 shipped. It has a sapphire crystal and a mineral crystal covered, lumed bezel.

    So far, it's a keeper!






    Looks great on that bracelet!
