Well, I already posted my latest arrival, it's this one:

polyarnie031.jpg

Latest acquisition was today at 6AM with many, many Bushmills in my head but it went ok for a change :P : Wasn't a bargain but it came close to that...

85717358.jpg

I still hadn't this dial nor a Ministry case, so... I was hesitating about getting these with white or green numbers but figured the white digits clash less with the golden markers... It's an incoming, will see how that turns out...

Well, the one I got isn't the one in the pic, actually mine is coming on a black nylon strap. :thumbup:

But I agree with you completely, a bracelet changes the look on the watch, particularly the shape of the case because of fixed end pieces (only my opinion). That's part of the reason I don't favour them much, especially on cushions cases like these ones are...

My most recent and therefore current favourite is this octagonal case black bezel 'antimagnetic' Amphibia. I'm particularly keen on the dial with triangular markers - don't see these that often. The dial's not in great nick, though ...and the antimag shield's missing! So, far from perfect, but nevertheless, I really like this combination.

It's great, makes me think of old Omega models, maybe I'm thinking along the line of the Railmasters mixed with Seamasters...

What's the antimagnetic shield? That cover between the movement and the case-back?

Cheers Matinzx :) I was wondering about the colour of the dial. The seller described it as black but, as you say, it does appear gray/green in the pics. I suppose it may be the lighting or fading over time - soon see anyway :wink:

Exactly - a loose disk - with a lip that makes it kind of like a small dish with vertical walls of about 2mm. Easy to find. Or avoid big magnets :D

Yeah, I've seen those... never thought about what they might be, guessed it was some kind of regular cover... :bag:

It`s been sometime since I added to my Russian collection but I`m hoping (finances allowing) in the not too distant future to obtain a recently serviced white dialed Sekonda 3017 which is obviously far to small for it`s present owner :wink2: :P
