I don't have a quartz, just saying from a gadget point of view.

But how do you really really know what time it is without a Casio eek.gif

I have just had another look at the Ventura's heart.gif Rich'a Alpha model and strap combination is IMO the best looker on the site, the diamond model lose the purity of design.

How are the straps attached?. Surely not in a conventional fashion huh.gif

I want one sad.gif

That is exactly why I sold my Tag and SMP to buy one.

Hells Bells Roy - you must rate it then, I can't imagine ever selling an SMP to get one. eek.gif

Unless it was a quartz SMP ph34r.gif

I only know two people with a Ventura, everyone has a SMP.

It get more looks and comments than any other watch I have ever had.

If it had cost more then a Rolex or Breitling then I would still have bought one, worth every penny.

People just love it , except leighton. laugh.gif

Almost agree. There has been one other watch I owned in the past that really draw a hell of attention. Never experienced this again with any other watch. And - JEHOVA! - it was a quartz, too... biggrin.gif:D

... and I thought I'd make it easy for you by posting a picture where the watch lays on the manual... biggrin.gif

Of course it's not a fuse. It's an antenna. This baby was the world's first three zone radio controlled watch which worked with our german DCF77 atomic time sender as well as the senders that are used in Japan and UK. The watch was introduced in 1992, the price was around EUR 500 AFAIR. There were two other versions, one silver/gold bicoloured and a gold coloured version.

I was a poor student in that time and couldn't afford it. When I searched for one years later (it wasn't available in stores anymore by then) I had to learn that you had to pay almost the original list price for a piece in mind condition. Nowadays it's almost impossible to get one anymore.

My preferred answert to the question about that thing in the middle was "I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you"... biggrin.gif
