The Almirante Navegante arrived last week so been wearing a lot.
Here are some specifics:

Screw down crown
Bidirectional inner bezel
Sold screw bars
Domed sapphire crystal
NH 38 engine
200m WR
Nice Tool Kit
22mm lugs
53mm lug to lug
42.5mm
BGW9 lume

17164
17165
17166
17167
17168
17169
17170
17171
17172
Over all I'm pleased with this. I like the vertical detailing on the case. For me
this is more dress-up design. The case size works well but the 53mm from lug
to lug is not in proportion to the case size. I knew this before. Two belt choices
and leather is a bit stiff and tapers so I'm on the hunt for blue leather belt.
The hands are blue as are the dial numbers and the inner bezel markings too.

If any think of sites I should visit then please chime in here. I found a beaut
at SNPR but looking at 16-20 weeks wait. May be an exotic material?

Lee posted a sale at Strapsco in the straps and accesories section for 20% off good until 12am using VET20. Lot's of varieties of blue straps. Vintage leather, nato leather and many other blue choices. May be worth a look. Congrats on the good looking pick-up. Very clean dial and nice case. Looks like it will be fun to mod as it looks very versatile as dress and sport.

I remember this one! We both liked the side detail. Congrats!

For straps, my go to guy is SteveO. For $60ish you can get whatever you want and it usually will be here in 2 weeks.

Thanks CG as I just checked out the site. Lots to go through. I did find one distressed blue.
A lot of blue designs sold out and can't use quick pins!

I absolutely LOVE that style and shape of the case, especially with the pattern along the sides; it also has a very definite presence to it, meaning that it feels very good on the wrist without making you feel like you're wearing a weighted manacle, or some such thing. The rest of the watch is pure, understated class in ALL respects, from the elegant white dial and its simple, straightforward hour markers, to the leather strap that adds a nice touch of dressiness without going too far and sliding into prissiness. In short: I loves me some watch flesh here!! Congratulations on a superb addition to the old 'collezioni!' Wear it in good health and enjoy the H-E-Double-Hockey-Sticks out of it!! :)


P.S. - That storage case is a real butt-kicker of an accessory, too!! :eyes:
