    Love it!! I had the 1st version back in my watch flipping days. Great value, but also just a plain great looking watch!

        Always liked the white and orange on that Bernhardt. Kind of an Explorer and Milgauss in one. I think he was always sold out of that color combo back when I did most of my watch shopping in that price range or I'd probably have bought one.

          Had to go into the office for a meeting today so I broke out one of my "pretty" watches.

            What watch I wore today

            Thanks for the feedback guys. A big part of collecting for me is the story/history of the watch. I had been aware of the brand and Fred Amos for a little while but never really knew his story. Turns out that not only did I live down the street from there 9 or so years ago, I even went to the very school that helped birth the company.

            I'm really liking the watch so far. For its price it's tough to beat, thinking about doing a little mod work with it. Mainly a re-lume and swapping in some sword hands.

              Yeah, my wife is from a little town near there so I plan on getting her one of the lady divers eventually. The stories can be cool.

                  Went with the new Bremont today. Decided to put it on the velcro strap which I've since found to be one of the most comfortable straps I've ever used.

                    I know I really need to mix it up, but I've been wearing this watch pretty much non-stop since picking it up. 1991 Explorer II.

                        Thanks. It is a natural brown nato I picked up from CheapestNatoStraps a couple of years ago. It has worn in nicely and darkened up.

                        Does "what watch I wanted to wear today" count? I put on this straight end jubilee I picked up for dirt cheap today. Just wanted to see how I liked the style on this watch before dropping more coin on the nicer StrapCode offerings. I removed all of the removable links and it still doesnt fit. Oh well.

                          Still running with the Explorer II.

                            Seeing so many Explorers lately. The idea to sell off most of my collection for a second big purchase is getting pretty tempting lately...
