    Great summary Jed, thanks.

    As I said on the VRF earlier, it's been a real pleasure finding so many milsubs (and issued Omega divers!) over the last 15-20 years, and gradually piecing together what we now know along with fellow enthusiasts from around the world.

    Best wishes,
    Martyn.

    I find it an absolute nightmare.
    Unfortunately I'm an Apple guy so that app above will not work.

    yeah thats the only way I've used it in the last couple of years , its only when doing a big post and having to go in and use multi photos that i had to go to the desktop and its a nightmare ( not helped admittedly by my useless internet connection) ....it freezes, locks, jumps back to the login page , diverts off to advertisers pages then wont come off.......soul destroying.

    Awesome info. It's getting way too risky to buy these old models unless you can get them with papers...

    Thanks Jed, I'll give it a second read this weekend, too much info to sink in first time around.

    Great read, thanks. Nice to think the evolution of the Rolex sub, was largely due to feedback from British servicemen.
