    What a crisp example. Judging by that bezel, civilian? You have inspired me to pull out my funky Airain. Still looking for the chrono sweep seconds hand as it was replaced sometime during its life.

    It's an issued piece, with a rare, but correct bezel varient. There are at least five bezel types on the issued Dodanes, some say six.

    Superb! Am I right to say this is a very late issued watch? These rarely come up as they are probably still in the hands of their original owners.

    Thank you, it has the uncommon "winged" case design, too.

    This Ed White is from 1967. The little puppy is 6 months. Both are a treat :). Both are easily wound up each day.

    ScubaPro Sunday! Probably one of my favorite watches, as it was purchased directly from its original owner, a retired Master Diver in Hawaii. ScubaPro awarded this to him after winning a free dive competition. He wore it "every day for almost 25 years in the strong Hawaiian sun" and advised me to get a "newer bezel". A true tool watch that's lived a life it was made for. I wouldn't change a thing. :cool:
