    History aside, I think they should come out with another line.  Croc band, polished bezel, and 120m resistance are nice features but they do not scream “Seamaster” in my opinion.  Seamaster, to me, means it would look good on my wrist while I’m standing on a fishing boat or dive boat; however, if I had this on, I would probably have to wear long black socks with my sandals for it to match.
