Thanks! Where's the picture? I have an Omega Seamaster...dress watch. I hardly wear it but I really like it!

Went back to Seiko SKX175 with a replacement Oyster bracelet. Not as accurate, but a tough watch.
The Seiko's ARE hard to beat.. You reminded me I needed to post a picture...2nd generation Orange Monster I wore birding...looks like June 24th!
