I like the Prometheus too. Internal bezel put me off as most of them are limited to 50m-75m when operating the crown.
Meritocracy: the privilege, wealth and advancement of those who chose their parents wisely.
Capitalism: a cult that promised to do good for the worst reasons.
Nationalism: a profound longing to go back to a past that never existed.

All good here. I'm also pleased to see Jason has discovered Milus, one of the most overlooked brands around; like Edox, you can score some killer gray deals on 'em even now. Have at 'em.
Actually TB as far as I know you can't get Milus watches on the grey market. Not the current models, anyway. You have to buy them new from the company, or used. Not great for tightarses like me but presumably will be good for residuals. And the older models, such as can be found at Joma, are not built to the same standard and constructed from the same quality components as the current range. No 904L, SW200 instead of 2892, for example.

And for Jason... nice selections but for me the "tool" look of the case on the Ocean Diver is what had me love at first sight.
Yeah, fair enough. Not sure of any other super compressor style watches with brushed or blasted finish. Ocean 7 rings a bell from back in the day but from memory they are huge.

That's really great Lum-Tec is still around. I always liked them although never owned one. Liked that they assemble in USA, liked their transparency. They're was a great post showing their assembly facility in detail, really impressive.

What about the Vortex?

Got the internal bezel. It's even solar powered, which is pretty sweet.
