    Welcome Petrus

    Good to have you here. You certainly have a very varied range of interests / hobbies.

    Re the anti-shock, I think that might be a step too far - even for Bremont!

    My website(s) about that is (are) www.homocaballus.eu and www.huertecilla.net.

    I like watches and wéar them, use them. The Yema and Seiko are véry useable trekking tools; leave your Garmin at home, learn to use a watch!
    Since I work and ride rugged, it sometimes can be called testing I have managed to crush a Traser P5903 whilst wearing it p.e.
    I also stick magnets onto watches that boast to be non- or anti-magnetic.
    ´Shock resistant´ is another challenge http://www.mijnalbum.nl/Foto-UWKATVBU.jpg

    I have:

    Your bleeding-edge Now is always someone else’s past. Someone else’s ’70s bellbottoms. Grasp that and start to attain atemporality.

    I will do a write up on it. It was one of the watches presented to coast guard captains for evaluation.
    It came to me with the original letter from Mühle, test sheets and a CD with action shots.
    With me it serves mounted SAR:

    From the Ostsee to the mountains of Andalucia; it has gót to be a versatile watch

    Riding I go either without a watch or with a trekking tool.

    Default G'day from downunder

    I'm Dave & I live in Melbourne, married with a couple of kids, a shiftworker driving trams. Started down the slippery slope of watch-foolery in 1974 when I bought myself a nice new Speedmaster MkII at the age of 16. Not sure how I found this place, but immediately recognised a couple of pals from other forums so signed up. Have a weakness for 70-80's chrono's with a particular fondness for Omega (pre-Swatch) and Seiko.
    Looking forward to participating and learning!

    Cheers

    Dave
