Another Analogue Mechanical Watch, #5...

Bought another mechanical watch, sort of Canadian military thing called Maratac GPT-1, has a Miyota 9015 movement. This makes 5 mechanical watches, another obsession, maybe.

    It never ends Herbert. Have you seen Sinns? Sinn and Stowa make probably my favorite pilot and diver watches.

    @clickiemcpete This is one of those things that turn up on they are getting more expensive, but still relatively cheap for what you get, but no real guarantee, just gov't or corporate surplus from contract deliveries and returns. They are a big commissionaire, and put surplus crap on their web page for sale. Watches sell out quick, they have a few, so look now!! They have lady pilots!!

    BTW... @clickiemcpete I've looked at Stova and Sinn, and they are wonderful, but rather beyond my budget. If the VA increases my pension award, I might have another look.
