This is a great watch for unshowered people working in the yard.

And once cleaned up, this watch will do.

It’s like the 928 of Speedmasters…. Because this Mark II was going to replace the original Speedmaster much like the 1970s 928 would eventually replace the aging 911.

Except the people didn’t want the new shit. They just wanted a ‘better’ version of the original shit they liked to begin with!

That is great looking watch Ron! I love the muted look of media blasting - hands of perfect length - and easily contrasted legibility.

The complete opposite of a 24hr dial, or one hander where it takes a minute to figure out what the hell I’m looking at,“Looks like… about… fooour… tweeeenty… five?”

Thanks. I agree, and even more than I would have when I first got it. Wearing it at work today and I was struck myself how extremely easy it is to read.
