      Classy Friday gents. I've gone for a diver that hasn't had much wrist time. Love it though.

        From the size of the markers, I'm guessing GG-W-113 issued in the 1970s?

          Bingo! 1973. Looks like someone tried to open the one piece case from the back.

            Also a work from home day... so have a nice big chunky chronograph on. Tried to get the OEM Ti bracelet for it... 3000 dollars quoted... Could not believe it... I think it will be staying on the BC rubber for a while to come...

              I can imagine this Speedmaster on a quality generic shark mesh, either SS or black PVD/DLC coated.

              Yes - did give that a thought - case is Ti, so I really would love to pair it with a Ti mesh bracelet but pretty sure they are not made in titanium and really not a market in any case. I suspect I will have a custom 22/20 canvas strap made that will allow me to also use the original Ti buckle. I'm thinking sand canvas would set it off - but still mulling over that...

                Very nice. This is an earlier Hamilton GG-W-113 with monocoque case—later ones had screw-in case backs. Yeah, a little unfortunate with the tool marks, but that’s the consequence of some manufacturers in the late-1960s, for some reason that escapes me, designed their one-piece case to appear as if it had a case back. We see this in your recent acquisition, and of this identical-spec Benrus GG-W-113 from GSA Contract 1975...






                Also in this early-70s Benrus Automatic Diver





                Note the helpful "Open Thru Crystal" ... I can think also of a few vintage IWC monocoque-case gents watch of the 70s. On the other hand, Omega and Seiko one-piece case designs of the period didn’t exhibit such press-in case back look.


                A watch journey that also serves the betterment of others is one worth taking.

                trying out the GS on a bonetto rubber, with go fast carbon fibre effect
                wearing it as tight as I can to get the bugger to shape! very thick for a bonetto.

                I like the rubber, bit of a sporty look. I have 2 Steveo straps inbound and the leather is for the GS...

                Beautiful GS Spring Diver GMT, deerworrier! ...If the SD GMT SBGE201 is the "ultimate evolution" of the late-1960s Seiko Navigator-Timer 6117-8000...






                ...then this watch is might be viewed as the Navigator-Timer 6117-8000 "resurrectedback to life"—4th GMT-hand calibrated to the hour hand, domed acrylic crystal, tension-wire-fitted bezel, late-60s watchmaking technology, and all...
