Got this watch for Christmas, and was finally able to get some pictures of it over this weekend.
It has a look similar to the Zeno Airplane Diver which I really like. Had actually been looking at
the orange dialed version with orange cloth strap for a couple of years, but it is now evidently
sold out. Fortunately I stumbled across this amazing Mondia Wave 500 Automatic Diver with
it's dark green, and orange bezel. Really can't say enough how nice it is. The build quality is just
terrific, and the overall look, and feel is very impressive. Somehow, even though there are a
ton of watches on my list to get out there. This one became a spontaneous grail.

By the way, found this watch at..
http://www.timequestwatches.com/

Had never ordered from them before, but they were really great! Nice people, and fantastic
customer service from the very beginning. Would highly recommend them.

Now here are some specs, along with pictures...

The Mondia Wave 500 Automatic uses the ETA 2824-2 movement. It's the first ETA Automatic
for me. It also has a 45mm brushed stainless steel case, along with bracelet. ..The bezel is uni-
directional rotating with green, and orange. While both the case-back, along with crown are screw
down with a water resistance of 500 meters. With the lume, it uses C3 SuperLuminova, as well
as a lume dial. The watch also comes in this extremely cool deluxe double box with a tool, leather,
rubber, and velcro straps.

Here are some pics...

Nice one Tom. I like the marker design over the Zeno and the lighter dial color, kind of a Sci-Fi GUI look. Also like the big lume pip/dial (gotta have at least 1 lume dial), and the bold bezel font weight and colors. Congrats on your first ETA auto, hope it's not your last.

Thanks so much Steve ! Smile Had actually seen some of Mondia's vintage watches at different websites,
and also at ebay before. Then saw this Wave 500, and REALLY liked the look of it. Found out they have
been around since 1935 by the way, and are based in Milan.
