    That looks like it was taken from a cockpit. I usually don't find that much stuff on the dial appealing but that is sharp.

    Thanks! It's got nice wrist presence as well and the 302 movement's not too shabby either. :)

    Manages to still hold its own against more illustrious competition ;)

    Correct me if I am wrong but does the term "gilt" not refer to gold?

    Dibs noted, but the list is quite long for this one though :)

    So, the exact definition gilt is the past tense of gild and describes a specific technique of applying gold foil or leaf to certain surfaces like painted wood or metal.

    With regard to watches, the term is a little more broad and is used to describe the application of any precious metal (usually gold or silver) to watch dials.

    Perhaps a watchmaker could better explain but I think I've got it :)

    In recognition of Remembrance Day in the Commonwealth and Veterans Day in the US, I went with the Marathon MSAR. Respect to all those that have served.
