Feels Great ! ! ! Measurements to be Added


The "feel" of this one is great!! Tonight, I will do the measurements, but it actually feels relatively flat against my wrist. The classic circular watch is the right shape for rotating hands; the lugs then make a normal circular watch into a rectangle . . . this Monster just starts as the rectangle, and drops the two LCD displays into the mix.

I bought from original owner, who received as teenager circa 1977, and seems to have worn a fair amount. In my view, the "New Old Stock, with Box and Papers" is a separate market, with an entirely different price scale. I paid in the customary price range for well-worn Chronosplit.
