Well at the end there was a picture of the Governator wearing a watch that I could not identify. Well, a reader did and thumbs up to Art Top for the info and link.
Here is the watch in question (or a variation of the watch).

The Governator with the watch in what I guess is the M47 tank. That is one huge watch.

Evidently the watch is based on the instrument on the M47 tank that the Governator use to drive when he was in the military service in Austria in the 60s. The watch retails for about USD 1,000 and the proceeds goes to a charity knows as the After School All Stars. Cool.
I saw this Seiko watch on-line and was interested in the watch. So off I went to my local watch shop to see if he had one or could find one. The watch I was looking for is the Seiko SNM037.

I like the fact that it has the compass rose and is a diver watch. It is called or rather known as the Land Monster. Nice. There is a black dial version, reference SNM035. Sadly he did not have one, but will look out for one and check with Seiko if they have it.
Since I was there, my friendly watch guy tempted me with these...
This was an interesting option. It is known as the Seiko FF. This version, reference SNZH59 has a gray gun metal coating. And that includes the metal bracelet. Something to think about....
