I could swear it is the same as the day I got it. This is one tough timepiece. This is the "oldest" watch I have and I certainly don't baby it. Take it in to the AD for some polishing every couple of years and I am good to go.

It is definitely a keeper.

how about when you hold the case sideways does it droop much. mines new but was told thats how you tell wear sort of on the band.

No droop at all. This watch has been pretty much bulletproof

Why are people posting photos of guns in a watch thread in a car forum? I own several guns but don't see the relevance?

Also, mods please delete the china spammer.

I'm guessing because it is a "James Bond" style of picture with the watch, car keys, and gun.

Hey man, they invented the GMT for Pan Am 707 pilots to beat jetlag... that's almost as cool as Sean Connery wearing a Subbie in a Bond flick.

Lol, ya, my wtf makes no sense now!

I have the gmt master II. Love the watch, and definitely researched it a bit. The 'traveler's watch' (or the 'pilot's watch'). Going to school back east, and always on the go, I actually use the gmt features!

Hi guys,

Used to own Rolex SD, Omega PO chrono, Montblanc TW chrono, Tag Carrera chrono, Hamilton khaki Xwind. All are gone, but I only miss the Rolex. It's on another level.

Got this Pam 305 atm, looking to add a Rolex soon.

Driving gloves by Autodromo.

There's only so much hair that looks ok on a wrist shot and I've already exceeded that amount, so just covering up what I can with the gloves.
