Too bad I sold my silver version of the FlightMaster, the SNAB67 (see below). I sold it during my oversized fashion era when I thought my 44mm FlightMaster was too small. It was very toolish with strong lume. I also like the black one featured here. These FlightMasters can be purchased for about $225.
The Amazon site says the FlightMaster has sapphire, but this is an error. It uses Hardlex crystal.

One of my students asked me to recommend a watch for her father, a surgeon in Japan. She wanted to spend no more than 600 dollars, so I recommended the Seiko Sumo. She kindly called me a "watch otaku," an obsessive. I am also a radio otaku.
Here's the interesting thing: Otaku is a Japanese term for an obsessive, geekish person. My favorite watches, upscale Seikos and Orients, are made in Japan. My favorite radios, Panasonics and Sony's from the 1960s and 1970s, are made in Japan.
I should add, as Angelo reminds me, I drive a Nissan Maxima and my next car would have to be an Infiniti, Lexus, Nissan, or Honda.
