    As proposed in thread earlier, I am inviting OF respectable and non respectable members to enlighten me with their knowledge about all those abbreviations used extensively on the forum. It could be useful for non native English speakers like me, beginners and all those who suffer from memory problems.
    Here are some I wrote down over the weekend, but I am sure there are many more.
    Thank you for your time and happy watch hunting.

    Also hulk vs Kermit.

    Both are Submariners with green bezels. the Kermit has a black dial with maxi (larger) hour indicators and was the limited edition anniversary sub. The Hulk has a green dial and is a "limited edition" that was made for a few years if not still in production.
