$139.00 + $15 s&h. Ships at the end of February.
Reading through the ad is painful, english is not a second language and I’m still not sure about some stuff. It is 38mm though and it’s a style that Fortis put out 40-50 years ago that costs a pretty penny now, if you can find one that hasn’t been frankened or redialed.
Here is a picture of the Fortis, 1975. Here is how a decompression watch works.

I’m sure The Merkur works like this in theory, but I don’t think I’ll be trusting it in the water. If Mido doesn’t recommend you rely on their watch for decompression times, how the hell could you trust the Merkur?
Here is the very pretty Mido version I like. It’s 40.5mm and I just want it smaller. Plus if you didn’t get these right away, you will pay above retail for one now.
So I got a cheapie for looks and gadgetry. I was bored so I went shopping.
