And, I figuered if I ever come across a beat up one, I can use the Nautilus for parts.

It’s a hefty piece, rated to 500m, helium protected (without a release valve). It even uses a screw down crown with external threads, just like the before mentioned two. And you just got to love that crown protector!

Lume is good too, and as it’s a quartz, an ideal beater watch with nice crisp printing and very legible dial.
