The Komandeirski has neither CCCP or Made in Russia on it so I assume it's from right after the fall of the wall when they were trying to figure things out. I also have a cheap chinese made automatic pocket watch that I've had for going on 12 years and it still keeps good time when I am able to wear it.
    But, I'm also addicted to my G-shocks. I have three right now but will hopefully getting rid of one soon to pick up either a pathfiner/protrek or another ABC watch. I'm currently thinking maybe Riseman or Gulfman although HighGear is now an NSP sponsor so I may give one of their watches a whirl.

    Oh, and Birnardo, that Paneri is gorgeous. I've been oggling them for a while but I'll have to wait until all the kids are in school and I'm not paying for child care before I can purchase one. Curse these expensive hobbies. And pesky children. On the upside, If I'm nice to the kids now maybe they'll make sure I'm in a good nursing home when I'm old and decrepit.
    Those Russian watches you mentioned are pretty good and well made. You can still get the watches made for the old KGB and submarine, and Spetznaz. Junkkers and Zeppelins are awesome watches.

    I would like to note, that as a geology student I appreciate rugged watches. My Casio G-Shock has been going 10 years without any damage from my MANY outdoor excursions. I also had a large piece of bar-stock steel fall on it in a machine shop (I luckily has taken it off)... I was sure of it's destruction. To the surprise of everyone in the room it came out unscathed! They aren't the best to look at, but for pure functionality, use, and features it can't be beat!

    I don't really have a preference on mechanical vs quartz, though loud automatics do bother me. I like something in the 44-46mm range, especially if it has a bezel, because I like larger, clearly visible numbers on the face. For those reasons, I really love the tool like look of some watches, like the Marathon SAR's and my DB Day/Night. Tritium is awesome, too.

    I'd really like to get a type B face Nav-B watch... if I ever get another watch.

    Damn. What happens when you combine absolutely novice level photographic skills, poor equipment w/o decent macro lense, lack of daylight, lack of decent edit program and objects difficult to shoot. Pics like this.
    Anyways. Here's the watches i have. Watch and suffer.

    Longines Hydroconquest:
