    Hey all, for my birthday last year I was lucky enough to be able to pick a watch! The F1 chronograph was my choice and I'm super happy with it. Anyone got any clue on what movement these things run? My other watches I have are an omega Seamaster cosmic 2000 (1974), a pulsar chronograph and citizen ecodrive. The tag is going to be my all occasions, flashy do it all watch. It is a gorgeous time piece in my eyes, and takes the work load off the old omega so I can wear that to special occasions.

    Here's a pic of the day I got it. Love the blue dial in the sun.

    Yeah quartz, I have heard the same thing. How are these movements for reliability?

    Btw looking at getting some nato straps for it, what width do I need?

    I think quartz movement are generally reliable. To be completely honest though, i never own a quartz movement, so this is just based on opinion not experience.

    Hope it will runs great for you.

    Cheers

    Thanks a tonne!

    Im finding the bezel is easily scratched. It is a machined bezel (brushed around the whole way), any way to correct this marring on the bezel? Or let it be and enjoy it?

    By the way, what width is the band on this watch? I'd like to get a nato strap as I'd like to swap between the metal bracelet and nato strap.
