The GMT Italian

This one absolutely sings to me.  While most readers are acquainted with Bamford's collaborations with luxury brands and a certain lume savant, they also have their own line, and I stumbled upon this one the other day.

To be fair, there are plenty of GMT dive inspired watches out there, but this one's sorta' fun! Rather than the traditional black red and blue options, Bamford went another way with green.  I'm digging it!

This one's been out for awhile, but it's still one of my favorites.  

The case is of stainless steel and measures 42 mm in diameter.  The movement is the 6497 from Unitas (i.e. ETA, i.e. SWATCH). 

Time is short - have fun with it!

For as long as Tempus Fugit has been going, Filip Blazevic has been quietly building high quality watches on America's North Coast. Many of Northern Ohio's watch cognoscenti have at least 1 Filip & Co. timekeeper in their collection, and the Diver 55 is his latest offering.

Water resistant to 200 meters (that's 660 feet in America), this is a true diver ready to handle going deep in the Caribbean, or swimming in Put In Bay -
