Hey, that's a nice looking watch.  It almost looks like it has tritium
hands.  Can't really tell from the low res photo.  Does it?  Hmmm, bet
I could get a watchsmith to transfer some vials from an old tritium
watch I have.

Is the LCD only for date?  I don't see any buttons.  Perfect for me.
I've never needed any of the chrono stuff and the buttons on my watch
are more of an irritation than anything.
