Should Bulova bring back the Snorkel Model?

Should Bulova bring back this watch? If yes in an auto or their UHF movement?

I say yes and why not they've already did for the moon watch so why not this one?

They did a couple years ago as part of the Accutron ll line. Referred to as the Lobster by some. I auctioned one off last month and another esteemed member has a black PVD version.

I'd like to see a re-issue of that watch. Only it should have a tuning fork, not an automatic movement. In terms of automatic movements, Bulova has little- if not completely nothing - to offer. It's one of these rare cases, where I'd actually prefer a watch not consistent with the original, rather than a boring one.

The Accutron II "Lobster" was one of the nicest watches made by Bulova in the last few years.

OK I remember now but what are your thought on the Original Snorkel Oceanographer pictured?
