Hello gents, happy april fool day. I am curious, I now some of you have one of these and I was wondering how you like them. They seem like a great everyday kind "beater" watch that wont make you shead a tear if it gets a scratch on it. I love wearing a nice issued mil watch, but the paranoia of dinging it or putting a scratch across the crystal sometimes give my nightmares. Anyway, they do have a nice military look, take care....Trevor

The company that produces this watch isn't always
a favourite on this board (for reasons buried by history),
but if you want a mil-style WWW homage you can't wrong.
I wear my manual wind PRS-53 as a knock-about and I
don't care about what it goes through; meanwhile my
real WWWs / 6Bs / W-10s are safely tucked away. There's an exhaustive review here:

That's what I'm kinda looking for, something I'm not scared to wear. I wear my Smiths W10 and some of my WWW's all the time and, I'm partial to my smiths though, I love it.

Oh, by the way....I want your Hamilton 6b sooooooo bad, why can't I find one in great condition like that.

Neil at chronomaster.uk sold this one and I wish and I wish and I wish it was mine....
