Very impressive. BTW, Zeno is selling a very similiar looking watch,and I read somewhere that they simply buy them in Italy. Either way, nice watch.

But it is a sweet big diver, I like it.

Easy to imitate, not so easy to innovate.

Zeno version on various websites which has the bizarre name "Airplane Diver" ! Both are great looking big bang for buck watches. The Zeno retails here in the UK at just £230. 24mm lugs too. Very nice.

The MMT500, http://www.mmt500.com, i. e. the official watch used by the Commandos of the Italian Navy, was ready for the tests in the september 2005 and the following december 2nd, the watchmaker, Umberto Panzeri in Viareggio-Tuscany, signed the official agreement with the Navy for the delivery of the first 150 -military- units for the 2006, followed by the -civilian- units ready the end of the summer of the same year.
The Mondia and the Zeno Watch Basel, introduced on the market AFTER the -born- of the MMT500, are very similar to the MMT500, but are not supplied like official equipment of the Italian Navy Commandos and Scuba Diver Units and, i think, other brands will be introduced with the same layout.

You can see the rubber strap signed "Mondia" and the Mondia logo on the dial over "Marina Militare"

It's true. The logo on the dial is the same as it of the Mondia, only because the supplier of same parts of the watch is the same as Mondia, Zeno W. B. and the same MMT500.
I remember that the -military- version of the MMT500 has born before both the Mondia and both the Zeno W. B.
