Does this watch have the SS bracelet included? The pics on your site depict the watch with the bracelet, but the description sounds as if the watch includes two rubber straps.

Goddamn it, you're right, H-F! It doesn't even have a helium-release time knob!

More time knobs does not always mean a better watch. You have to take other things into account.

Things like size of the time knob, does the time knob screw down, is the time knob easy to grip, is the time knob plain or does it have a cool logo on it?

These are the things that must be considered when determining the value of a watch.

Hmmm.... more importantly, why hasn't the most feared watch company in the universe come out with an interchangeable time knob system? You know that's what everyone wants! Gold time knobs, stainless time knobs, ceramic time knobs, mother of pearl time knobs, carbon fibre time knobs, crystal... err, "gem"-studded time knobs, anchovie-flavored time knobs...

MY GAWD, THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS!!!!

Would think the "Mad Cow" would come with a nice calfskin strap, or would that be too creepy

Is it true that if this watch breaks the service department just places a burlap bag over it and hits it with a sledgehammer ?

I'm awaiting a mid-sized version--perhaps the "Veal."
