    Not a big cyclops fan, and I dont dig Mercedes hands. In pictures I am not to keen.

    But in the flesh these really are very nice.

    Voted cool as I am saving my ubercool votes for those that really sing to me, but its certainly a cracker.

    Says it all - one of the coolest men ever to walk this planet...



    Wasn't this unofficial (?) standard issue for Pan-Am pilots back in the day?

    Uber for me, but then I'm probably a little biased....

    For me, cool but no more than that. Sorry gents (and I am conscious that there are a few about).

    In its time, probably uber.

    But no, after making N million of them, all so perfectly faithfully designed after the original, the mystique has gone.

    I mean, issued to Pan Am pilots the world over. Is that Uber-cool?

    I think I am getting a bit pickier, but uber needs to something special, not seen all that often, and probably not cheapened by rolling the production on for the last 40 years or whatever it is.

    Just my opinion of course. And jusfging by prices, I am clearly in the minority here, so what do I know.

    If it's Lemania-powered, I'm interested. Tool Chrono - interested. Dive Chrono - interested. Interesting - interested

    Yep, those guys were Gods to the mere mortals like the rest of us - trolley dollies falling at their feet etc - "Catch me if you can?". Maybe of its time but I still live in the past.

    I voted cool but the cyclops and mercedes hands somehow stop it going any further along the scale for me.
