And what grail would that be?
I'm guessing some Tuna or MM300? Or did you go orange?

It aint Black??? :eek:
Guys the suspense to tell you is killing me.......

Ok Ok.ive bought the obvious choice for most of us...Yep its a Marinemaster 8L35.
Just hope i wont be dissapointed.I have seen one in the flesh so i know what im letting myself in for.
The reason i did not go for the Darth Tuna is i was too concerned with it sitting on my wrist comfortably as my Last 1000m Golden Tuna just never felt right and i flipped it hence my MM300 decision.

Thanks Guys i cant wait for it to land.

Good one bro...mm300 is definitely the best choice.... I just finished winding my MM300 just a minute ago.That should last for some time.

Enjoy your watch! :))

Congrats, Neil! With a MM you sure can't go wrong. It's a classic, nevertheless.

But if you allow me to say so myself, I wouldn't rule out the Darth Tuna for good, just yet. Please, find a way to give it a try from some other WIS fellow in your area, maybe. There's something about the OEM new strap the Darths (both SBBN011 and the newer SBBN013) come mounted on that will keep the watch snugged on your wrist much better than in the SSBS018 case, which carries a completely different strap, by the way. You should look into it. Also, the material of this Darth strap is somewhat different from your regular Z-22 straight vent strap. It feels like silicone, though I doubt it really is. All silicone straps are known for keeping watches snugged in place on the wrist. I can tell you my Darth sits different than the SSBS018, and the reason why is the strap, I think.

Anyways, congratulations for the acquisition, my friend! You deserve it! Wear that in good health.
Now that's another choice you'll have for 2011's vacation diving trip!

Regards,
CHRIS
