    One for Jack Frost, and one for Santa.

    I have to say - Jack Frost's is infinitely more wearable.

    Warm tidings of the season to you all!

    Ah! Thanks for the link. How big are these dimension wise?

    The case is 36mm square. As you might expect, per the rules of geometry, these wear a lot bigger than a round 36mm watch. I'll post some comparison photos later for scale.

    Here is the silver Respirator A769x sammiched between two of its lobster-braceleted brethren - the A781 and the Astronic - for scale. The A781 and the Astronic both measure 38mm across by 43mm lug-to-lug. The Respirator holds its own on that big old shackle.

    And here is the A 769x again (right) with the P 7693 (left), now fully Rössler-ized (i.e. pimped out with the correct NSA bracelet, as seen on p.148).

    Is the Astronic a 17 jewel movement as it's a Movado?

    Yes, 17J. They seem to have de-jeweled the chronograph mechanism - I don't know if it's as simple as that, but that's how I understand it.
