Good to -45*C, but also made to work up to +80*C.

Might have an equally difficult time that way.

I have been kicking myself for missing out on the 203 Arktis for the better part of 20 years, so I'm not getting any younger, might as well.

It was the same story for the Marine Master. 20 years of wishing I could get one.

For me it's retail therapy. My mom is 90 and just came down with dementia. I am organizing her care and the day to day. I take solace in a watch, those that do get it, those that don't... don't.
So, end of May I will get a notification they are in the U.S. and I will have one.

I'm also getting it with the fine mesh bracelet. I think it looks best with it.

The 206 looks like it has the H link bracelet, not the fine link right? My 556ib has the fine link bracelet and is awesome, wear it all the time.

Yes, it comes with the H link. I am additionally getting the fine mesh.

It's 22mm, so harder to find the right end link, might as well get both.

I believe but am not certain, that they ship it with a rubber bracelet as well. Again, not sure about that part.

Got my Yacht-Master back from service today. She shore do look purdy! RSC SF (now Independent Watch Service) did the work. Even refinished the platinum bezel. When I bought it in '03, nobody knew how to do that part, now they do. Delighted!

So pretty and for all intent a new watch, I'm going to put it on ice, continue to wear the Alpinist and tomorrow when the Marine Master gets back, wear that as the daily.

In reality how far down do you need to go to need a helium valve?

You actually don't really need one. it's just a feature to sell.

My dad has always worn Omegas. He got a Constellation when he and Mom got married, then mom got him a moon watch for their 20th anniversary.

I can tell you a lot of the Seamaster Chronographs are huuuuuge chunks of metal. If you like big watches it's a good watch.
