    Mrs. Lou P and I are on a short Panama Canal get-away.

    Pan ws 2 IMG_1116.jpg

    Here, the deepest part of the canal's "cut" at the continental divide, with the Pan-American Highway bridge beyond.

    Ummm..."locked" and loaded , looking down at sea level Pacific side beyond.

    The tour guide said that, although gates get removed for servicing, these are the original 100 year old riveted steel gates. Titanic era stuff...still in 24/7 mission critical operation. Pretty amazing...

    Ugly tanker at our backs fills the lock to within inches. Note the cars called "mules" at the sides that guide the ship precisely through.

    ,
    We saw the openings to new channels going to wider locks, ready to start operation next April for a much needed canal upgrade, but the continental dive cut will remain a bottle neck allowing only one way traffic for the biggest ships.

    Ahh...blue Pacific water, to match a worry free watch I enjoy for a trip like this.

    Seamaster 300 with a difference :D

    I had a 565 movement and Seamaster dial and hands which I had planned to make into a Seamaster 300 but I was too late to buy a case before Omega practically doubled their price. So while looking for a suitable replacement for the last few months, I came across a 166.073 case in very good condition (often called Seamaster 120 Deep Blue). I've always found the dial of this model a bit fussy but it has a nice big case which fits the 565 movement. The result is what you see here, the bezel is actually dark blue as is the strap :thumbsup:

    It should make a nice change from my 552 Seamaster 300
