I had a luminox. Not bad, extremely light, visibility at night was good, had problems with it though (condensation) so got rid of it, that was some years ago so maybe they don't have that issue anymore. Seiko do nice military ones as do gshock.

Thanks Giz, want a model that was actually used by the military, not just military style.
How much did you pay for your Luminox? And which model did you get? Might try and avoid that one!

What's the approx cost for servicing a Sub and how often to they need doing, or only worth doing if needed or wanting to sell on?

about £380 to £450 for a full service, includes a case polish. More if you have the crystal or bezel replaced. I think mine cost £380 from St James Square.

i got my sub at 18…never had any problems in the following 9 years, if anything people compliment.

Wow, your pockets must be fat! Eye-wink

Deleted them. Didn't notice for a while as all the spammed threads were ones which get bumped often, so seeing them being bumped in the active threads bit on the left, I didn't bat an eyelid. It's usually ancient threads that get spammed, so they get noticed quicker
