Thanks, RussP.  I am waiting to receive an order of a 12mm open-ended strap for this WWI-era watch.

Very nice color of your Hamilton Khaki. The crown guard looks so cool!

Not the new 2018 one mate, this is a 2012 quartz model that I bought from my mate who bought the 2018 version!  Got a stonking deal on it and it's a very desirable model - I've always wanted a "Bond" Seamaster so I'm chuffed to bits with this. :)

@Del Great choice, wear it in good health! I hope to get my hands on one of these in the future. I actually prefer these in quartz..heretic I am..

It looks almost like new! These are difficult to find in good condition, at least in my country. I went to check out 3 different watches that were sold online over here and they looked like garbage compared to yours..The worst one was the one I had to drive 140km to see ( one direction ) and the seller said it was like new on the phone..I should have torn his balls off, lying SOB..I gave up on these and started looking for Tudor Rangers, but now I see that there's still hope :)

Ah, that's a pity.  I don't normally buy watches that are not new or nearly new and this is 6 years old (one of the last quartz Seamasters) so to my eyes it's not really "almost like new". However, being objective about it, there are no major dings on the case or the bezel, the bezel insert is in very good condition and although the bracelet is a bit "smooth"looking it's in good condition. The only thing that has any significant signs of wear is the clasp, which I'll try to lightly brush out with a finishing pad. It also came with the full box set (in as-new condition!) with manual, warranty card and pictogram card (and all original links) so it's a superb package to keep as a collectors item. :)

If you compared yours to the ones I went to see, you'd think that yours was bought last week!

On the other hand - you're known for your stellar pics and you could make a turd look like a muffin, so maybe yours looks like crap in real life and it's just your magic.. ;)

Anyway, if you realize that you can't live with those horrible desk dives and that the ticking hand is driving you insane, shoot me a PM and I'll come to the rescue :D

:lol:    No turds here, I can assure you!  And, I'll keep you in mind if I ever want to move it on, although be warned......I'll be brushing out the desk dive marks and I really don't mind ticking...! :D
