    Man, it's getting tougher to resist the call of those WatchCo SM300's. Great watch! :thumbsup:

    I did know if I would like the mesh or not, but it is very comfortable.

    I just have to keep it away from my uncle. He had one like this that he bought while he was in Vietnam. He then lost it while sailing. Only use NATOS while sailing.

    The movement is also very beautiful to look at and only gains 2 seconds per day. Not bad for an old watch.

    I wanted to giive my observations on the lume. When the hands have been in the dark for awhile, they are white like the dial. After just alittle light exposure, they will have a slight green tint to them while the dial is still white. At night, the hands, dial and bezel glow really well. They are brighter than my tritium Marathon SAR at first. After 8 hours they are still glowing well enough to see with ease. The tritium is a little brighter after 8 hours.

    Nice - love this watch in general, both the originals and the Watchco models. I have seriously considered getting either one at some point in time.

    On the lume on the hands and dial - one thing that bothers me on the Watchco models is the slight tint (yellow-green tint) to the lume on the hands, where the dal has white lume. I had a client bring me one of these for servicing, and he asked if I could get new hands for it that matched the dial - however when the new hands arrived from Omega, they were tinted lume just like what are on the watch.

    I stripped out the lume and relumed with white SuperLumiNova, and they matched great after that - client was very pleased. Something you might want to consider.

    Here's a shot with the hour/minute hand relumed, so they are white to match the dial:

    And here is a quick lume shot I did - the glow matches now as well:

    Cheers, Al

    My dial and hands are actually brand new ones from Omega. I have 2 other sets of hands. All three alittle green as soon as the light hits them. They were white out of the tube. I just came in from ouside. The dial is whie, but th hands are green from the glow.

    I have some C1 superluminova, but will leave them original. I kinda like watching the hands turn colors and I love they glow. They are my mood ring. When I have been out in the sun, they are green and happy. After being in the dark for awhile, white and sad.

    Bee You Tee Full! I have something similar without the date from 1970. It's going up to Archer to be cleaned and pressed when I get around to it. The original bracelet is comfy but I'll bet the mesh is just wonderful!

    I looked at the dial this morning. The glow on the hands is stronger than the dial. The slight green color is the price you pay for a stonger lume.

    Sounds as if you have a great watch too. I was thinking about a no date. Maybe some day.

    Thank you. Your 5513 is beautiful too. I bet it turns its share of people green. Do you have the big bubble on?

    The movement is even better than I thought. I tweaked the timing and over the last 48 hours it has not changed any. Zero error over 48 hours. Wow. I am happy.
