Marathon TSAR

Post by biglove » August 22nd 2020, 4:12pm

Time to get back to the basics. Solid, well made watches that will outlast their owner. Damn it, I have a plan and am sticking to it...again.

Two watches on order, one a LE from Switzerland that won’t be here until Nov-Dec; the other a German(my first) that should be here next month.

Back in 2015 I donated my GSAR for one of our charity auctions and have missed Marathon as a beater ever since. Nothing else has come close. Marc at Island Watch had a sale and I picked up a TSAR “medium size” quartz on OEM bracelet.

Specs:

ISO 6425 Certified
Case: Brushed Steel
Movement: High-Torque ETA F06 Quartz
Dial: Black
Lume: Tritium Tubes
Crystal: Sapphire
Water Res.: 300m
Dimensions: 36mm width x 43.5mm lug-lug
Thickness: 12.5mm
Lug Width: 18mm
Crown: 5.5 x 3.8 mm
Weight: 70g (on rubber)

Those are great. How is the size?
36mm is considerably smaller than the GSAR was at either 38mm or 41mm, can’t recall which version I had.

Surprisingly it feels great though. Very comfortable and lighter, easy to forget it is there despite the thickness.

My wrist is 7.50”, thanks to some pandemic pounds added, and I would not wish to go any smaller but to go up to 41mm would be too much. The wife is the fashion guru and she says it looks great on the wrist.

I love it!

Those watches are just classic, what a dive watch should look like IMHO.

Great choice.
