    I challenge anyone to out-seventies this. (The gauntlet is thrown!) I'm quite seriously considering getting one of these for its sheer mullety gorgeousness.

    Grooooovy. Though, as for that, these also exist...

    (Not mine, to be clear.)

    Tried to find the watch on their website but they have about 400,000 different models, most of them horrendous. Gave up.

    I agree---I'm giving it a bit of hard time here, but I'm also having great difficulty getting it off my mind. I'm not into tennis, but it's very cool that the subdials and pushers are specifically designed to keep score in a match (or matches, I presume).

    Ah I wondered what they were for. Not into Tennis? Who cares! I'd give my right arm(well, maybe the left one, or a non-index finger at least) for a Omega Soccer Timer and I have zero interest in football.

    Exactly! How many people here actually know how to use a Tachymetre?!?

    :) Why do I feel like you and I are about to engage in a very passive game of watch-buying chicken?

    Let’s see who can not buy this watch for the longest period of time.

    I know it originally came out in 1967, but my Dynamic (mine's from 1970) is the most quintessentially '70s design I can imagine.

    I dig the Dynamics. I keep telling myself to wait and save up for a high-end birth year watch, like a Speedmaster, but I feel the pull of those 70s futurism-looking wrist-tanks.
