    Thanks! The enamel dial is a big draw for me personally, that and I do like The Armoury too.
    In person, it's very much a subtle difference compared to regular (painted?) dials. I don't have another watch with a white dial but looking at the enamel, its specular highlights on the surface are a bit softer. The finish of the enamel on mine also isn't 100% glass-like smooth. I never looked at a Breguet enamel dial this close so I can't really say if it's like this across the board.
    Overall though, it's hard (for me) to tell enamel apart from regular old dials from more than 3ft away.

    I'm dressed like a grown-up today, with a proper hand-wound watch.

    I know that I sound like a broken record, but how are you guys posting these seeded images? I can't load an attachment, and when I try to attach the imgur link it says "not a proper image file." There doesn't appear to be a URL image button anywhere?

    Looking at the post above, this code looks like some button or script made it, but where can I find that?

    I had been looking at the Zenith pilot watches with big onion crowns. It convinced me to take this little number for a test drive. Times Midget reissue from the Japanese market.

    it came on a bind strap but that’s not for me. Fixed lugs so here it’s on a leather NATO.

    hmm lost the image button again.

    Thanks - and because this particular model is brass, it is even less expensive than most bronzo divers. It's fun watching the patina develop unique character over time, and there are several methods of speeding up the process if it arrives too shiny for your taste
