  1. It’s a truly beautiful watch – thanks for the opportunity to win it!

    • I really like the MKII watch, especial the blue lume is fantastic!
      In addition to that the watch is not to high and not to big to overshaddow a small wrist.

  30. Tomasz says:

    Homage or not – I don’t care. This watch is great! πŸ™‚
    Thank You for this giveaway.

  31. Mikael says:

    A truly beautiful timepiece.

  32. Martin says:

    I had never heard of MKII up until I met a guy a year ago who said he stopped being interested in other watches, now he always wore his MKII on a mesh and never deviated. He cancelled his accounts at WUS and other places, but he did convince me to start reading Worn and Wound, because that was one thing he still did. Thanks for a great blog and “hi to Micke”, since you probably read this, this might be my chance of selling my current collection without ever looking back.

  33. Rudo says:

    Super quality version of this classic watch model. Would love to own one and wear it with pride.

    Great watch. You guys consistently hit the mark with the watches you select to review.

  58. Brian says:

    Wow, another great review. Its amazing how many awesome giveaways you guys do! keep up the good work!

  59. CPB says:

    I love the obtainable watches that are always reviewed here. The fact that some are given away is just a plus. Any chance of bringing a lady in from time to time for women’s watches?

  60. I have been wanting to add a new sub to the collection, hopefully this is my lucky day.

  61. I was going to order this watch, but I’ll just take it here instead :0)

  62. Daryl says:

    Classy looking watch. Loving the reviews and videos you put out!

  64. ash says:

    Awesome site guys, have been following for a while! Great watch too πŸ˜‰

  65. Fabian says:

    I hope I will be lucky this time! Great website!

  66. Jaan says:

    Amazing giveaway, this is definitely one of the best sub homages I’ve seen (the lack of a crown guard really makes it stand out). By the way, you forgot to add the link to the terms and conditions.

  67. Albert says:

    Cheers to you guys for running such a great website and Instagram feed. I’ve already learned so much from the site and have made a few purchases based on your reviews and articles! Keep up the fantastic work!

  68. A magnificent piece! In this day and age, I am much more drawn to the classic style diver watches than I am to the monstrous and overly adorned watches that seem to be prevalent in today’s fashion. Kudos to MKII in paying homage to one of the most classic timepieces of all time, while still retaining their own unique stamp and staying true to their product line.

  69. Olaf says:

    The name alone makes this watch desirable. Always wanted to go to Nassau!

  70. Very classy W&W, and the watch is nice too!

  71. I’d love to get my hands on the Nassau, not only because it is a great homage watch, but also because there’s a wait list for it.

  72. Jay Yoder says:

    The proportions of this watch are perfect.

  73. Jeremy says:

    Excellent looking watch! Would love to own one.

  74. Tin Nguyen says:

    I hope I will be lucky this time! Great website!

  75. Andy says:

    Nice review. How does it compare to the Raven that you reviewed a few months back?

  76. Mike says:

    Excellent execution and beautiful.

  77. Awesome watch… true classic styling combined with excellent quality… surprisingly hard to find these days.

    Thanks for the review and the giveaway!

  78. Eric says:

    Nice looking homage. It’s really great to get a chance to own a watch that’s actually assembled in North America instead of in Europe or China. Thanks!!!

  79. Ari says:

    Here’s hoping!

  80. Really nice and I would be a fool not to leave a comment πŸ˜‰


  81. Ben says:

    Ended up finding w&w after a search for a review of the Seiko 803. The reviews and photography are excellent. Thanks for offering up the giveaway and keep up the good work!

  93. well made dive watch from a striving entrepreneurship
    bravo, Bill!

  94. Rob says:

    Is this competition open to non US residents? Good looking watch and would look awesome on a NATO. Love the site too. Opened my eyes to a lot of smaller brands making nice pieces at competitive prices. Takes the snobbery out of watch collecting/lusting/general geekery. Bravo.

  95. Pat T says:

    What a beauty……it would be an honor to own one!!!

  96. jbb says:

    Beautiful watch–it would make a great first “real” watch for me. Thanks!

    Um, yes, please. Great watch to win.

    Very nice watch! I’m choosing now between them, steinhart and chward

  114. Matt BH says:

    This watch looks great, but it’d look even better on my left wrist!

  115. Stephen says:

    I know this might seem lame to do this in this article, but I just wanted to let you guys know that I love the site and I really do think it’s the best watch site available (not even just in the terms of “actually affordable” watch sites).

  156. bruno says:

    Great looking watch!

  157. Dave N. says:

    Just wanted to say how much I appreciate your site. I think you guys write the highest quality reviews of any watch site, and it’s nice that you focus on good values (plenty of sites focus on very expensive watches). Your site led me to discover the Christopher Ward C60 Trident GMT, which I received a few days ago and I am loving. How about you add a classic diver to my collection? πŸ™‚

  158. Beautiful watch!

  159. Steve J. says:

    Excellent watch and thanks W&W for such an awesome opportunity.

  160. Very cool watch. Nice to see another high quality Sub homage hit the market. Hope I win!!

  162. rv says:

    dear wornandwound,

    please help my lonely wrist find a new friend. if you could only see the joy and excitement my wrist expressed upon seeing this fine time piece. it would bring tears to your eyes… and wrist. the pride that would be exuded every day wearing this distinguished watch is beyond description. please choose me as the first owner of this MKII NASSAU!

    your loyal follower,


  163. Nathaniel says:

    Loved the review of this watch, especially finding out that they are based here in Pennsylvania. Thanks for the opportunity.

  164. Rob says:

    Fantastic looking homage watch. I’ve been looking for a good quality diver styled watch for some time now, this looks perfect.

  165. Jeff says:

    Classic styling. What’s not to love. Hope I win.

  166. Thanks for the giveaway, guys! I love Worn & Wound–you guys do my favorite timepiece reviews, hitting all the right points plus beautiful photography.

    I would love to own an MKII… my only diver watch is an Orient Mako (yellow dial, which I generally wear in the summer on a nato band) and I have nothing bad to say about it, but there is just something about the classic diver watch on a steel bracelet that speaks “dry martini and black tie” to me.


  167. Jobin says:

    Nice to see MKII making this watch their own by implementing such a high level of build and finishing quality, without all the overhead of the middlemen

  168. My wrist feels naked without this watch!

  169. veron lim says:

    Whenever, Whatever watches!
    Look no farther Worn & Wound.

  170. Ed says:

    Beautiful watch. Wanted one of these for awhile now!

  171. Josh says:

    Great watch and great review, many thanks! Your review has really made me consider this watch as you speak so highly of the build quality of this watch, much more than any other watches you have reviewed! Keep up the good work!

  172. Matt Chia says:

    Definitely a worthy homage watch. I have to admit, I wouldn’t have even thought of the difference between homage/replica/counterfeit without reading your other article a few days ago.

    Best of luck to everyone!

  173. Jim says:

    Thanks for the chance at winning this watch!

  178. AR says:

    Another quality MKII watch!

  179. 1stGenRex says:

    They do the Homage thing rather well here. It’s not a COMPLETE rip off, but you can tell where their inspiration came from.

  180. Joel says:

    Keep up the good work!

  181. Dave says:

    I would be really excited to win this watch. It would make a lovely addition to my collection.

    A well done submariner homage. I like it!

  192. Joe Chase says:

    That is a great watch- thanks for the chance to win something that well regarded- It’d be perfect on my wrist…

  193. Woah. That’s quite the list of commenters! I’ll add my two cents in! That one looks quite good on the NATO you posted on Instagram!

  194. Adam Hahne says:

    Love the retro-flirt with the red bezel-triangle.
    Would love to see a few of these make it to Norway so I can see and feel the much praised build quality in the flesh πŸ™‚

  195. Bjorn says:

    Great blog and exciting give away! I’ve heard good things about the MKIIs πŸ™‚

  228. Mike M says:

    If there was ever a giveaway that I wanted to win, it would be this one!

  229. This would be an awesome watch to win! Thanks for the opp!

  230. David says:

    Great looking watch!

  231. Great review, and a watch that is an instant classic!

  232. Jeff C says:

    Great review, great looking watch!

  233. Tad says:

    Kudos to Bill Yao (owner of MKII) for trying lots of new things here. The new business model took a lot of guts and Bill took a lot of flak from people due to uncertainty. In the end, he figured out a cool new business model and we have access to what some people argue is a homage (let’s not get into that today) but is really a masterful timepiece. If you haven’t had the chance to see one (or it’s Kingston LE cousin), beg borrow or steal some time with one.

    MKII’s attention to detail would make the folks at Rolex cry. It’s like the Ferrari 365 that was over-restored far beyond the quality that the workers at Maranello ever imagined. It may lose points at Pebble Beach, but it is an absolute stunner.

    If you don’t win this watch, buy one…

  234. Chris says:

    Extremely handsome watch which, I assure you, would be going to an excellent home. (fingers crossed!)

  235. Matt says:

    In it to win it. ::drool::

  236. Eric Henao says:

  247. Scott says:

    Cheerful contest entry.

  248. John says:

    Very nice! I decided I had to have one of these right around the time the put ordering on hold. Vexing! πŸ™‚

  249. Rafael T says:

    I thought the Kingston was a beautiful watch, but I like the look of this one even better!

    Well done, Bill Yao, and thanks for the opportunity, the chance to win this watch!

  250. Mary says:

    Beautiful watch πŸ™‚

  251. Thanks for the opportunity to win a Nassau.

  252. Matt R says:

  253. Ethan says:

    I always like stopping here at the end of the day to see what’s hot. Thanks for the opportunity and generosity.

  255. James D says:

    Today is my birthday, just saying!

    Great review as always W&W!

  256. Awesome review! Very nice watch!!!

  257. Bruno says:

    Great watch, pity about the price…but if I win it them I guess the “price” would be perfect hehe

  258. LJ Lee says:

    Very nice review! Now I want a Nassau! (and it’s sold out!)

  259. Great review. Awesome watch.

  260. Johannes says:

    I have for a long time seen the great work of Bill, and it would be wonderfull to have on of his watches on my wrist!

  261. Looks great, these are almost impossible to find.

  262. I have been a fan of Bill Yao’s work for a long time. It’s a shame I was never able to get a modded seiko diver from him before he started manufacturing his own independent pieces. Regardless I love the opportunity to own such a fine time piece. Bill Yao’s work is truly second to none, and something I hope to aspire to one day when I start my own watch company. Bill is truly an inspiration.

    Worn and Wound, you always and continue to have wonderful watch reviews. You are my first stop for up and coming news in the watch world. I really appreciate all you guys do! Thanks for such a great review once again and keep up the good work!

  263. Jonas says:

    Love the Mk II watches, love the sub – this homage watch rocks!

    Please send this baby to Sweden πŸ™‚ (me!)

  264. Howard L says:

    Must have this watch but can’t afford it. It has more character than the sub in my opinion.

  265. It’s a very beautiful watch, thanks to Bill for a fantastic work!

  266. This would save me from buying a new watch.


  267. Daryl H says:

    Beautiful watch. Thanks to Worn and Wound and to Bill for provding the opportunity to us to maybe win one!

  268. Fantastic watch and review. Thanks!

  269. erik says:

    Great looking watch; solid design.

  271. Jake says:

    Beautiful watch!

  272. Josh says:

    This would be great to wear!

  273. Anthony says:

    Thanks for the review!

  274. Jonathan says:

    The watch looks great! Hope I win!

    ps: It would be a nice tweak to the site to have the comment dialogue box at the top rather than the bottom. That way you can still see the page content when commenting! Love the site, keep the good stuff coming!

  275. F L says:

    Definitely one of the best sub homage ever

  276. Plamen V. says:

    One word: GRAIL!

  277. Robert says:

    Love the classic sub homage look.

  278. Kathryn says:

    Awesome watch! πŸ™‚

  279. This is truly a beautiful watch. For them to produce such a high quality watch with this level of craftsmanship, it is almost unreal that they only charge you under $900.

  280. OMG!!!! i need to represent this in canada, on my wrist!

  281. Aaron says:

    What a watch, looks amazing.

  282. Andy Black says:

    Great looking watch! The blue lume is cool. Hope I win!

    I hope I win. It is a very nice watch!

  286. Alain says:

    Really beautifal Watch! Great review

  287. I would love to win a MKII Timepiece!

    (fingers crossed)

  288. Mitch says:

    What I always appreciate about W&W reviews is that they are always very detailed, meticulous, and masterfully executed. Much like the fine watches I regularly come here to read about. This watch and your fine review of it are just another such example. Would I like to own the MKII? In a heartbeat !!

  289. Catalin says:

    Love the watch and the brand. Bill puts a lot of work into these and it shows. I hope he will do a date model using this case.

  290. Michael says:

    wow! what a great giveaway – thanks w&w!

  291. Michael says:

    wow! what a great giveaway – thanks w&w!

  292. David says:

    Dreaming of this watch for a long time. MKII rules!!!

  293. Dietmar says:

    Excellent watch.
    Good luck 4 all!

  294. Dan says:

    I really appreciated the honesty of the review, and the details about why this is a well made watch. Thanks for the review and opportunity to win this watch!

  295. Nick T says:

    I like the homage style, but looking like a Rolex. Makes feel like you should get a Rolex, but for the price you can’t complain.

  296. Dave says:

    It really brings back the classic 50’s sub with modern usability – fingers crossed

  297. Great reviews! MKII Nassau is a really beautiful watch!

    Thanks for the opportunity! WOW, incredible giveaway!


  298. David says:

    Beautiful looking watch. Learned about the MKII collection on WatchUSeek forums and have always admired the craftsmanship behind them. Unfortunately Ive never had the chance to own one myself due to my budget on watches. Would make a nice addition to my humble collection.

  299. Inkoo says:

    Awesome watch, great giveaway.

  300. Kyle says:

    Thank you!

  301. Cracking watch, cracking review. If you’re going to make an homage, than one which is so well executed is to be applauded.

  302. Chris says:

    Very nice timepiece!

  303. Robb says:

    I don’t want this, I NEED this timepiece. Love all the MKII’s!!

  304. SimonRain says:

    Such a nice submariner ! I really love the details on this one

  305. Patrick says:

    What a beautiful watch. I’ve been admiring MKII since finding them on WUS.

  306. Kevin H says:

    MKII makes the highest quality Rolex tributes around, and they probably will remain the best for a long time; if not forever. I really enjoyed the review, it covered all of the main points of the Nassau and its fine attention to detail and outstanding quality!

  307. Liam says:

    Even though it’s small, MKII is one of the more interesting watch companies around. They’ve got some seriously dedicated fans for a reason.

  308. Ooh! Pick me! Pick me!

    Btw, W&W, thank you for such an awesome site! So glad I stumbled on to you! Keep up the good work!

  309. KeithJM says:

    Nice review. Beautiful watch.

  310. Larry L says:

    Oh, I would love to own that watch!

  311. MKII is doing great things as a brand. I was about to pull the trigger on a nassau, but waited one extra day and they were sold out! I truly am thankful that Worn & Wound and MKII are doing this givaway. It gives me a second chance to hopefully obtain this beauty.

  312. Joost says:

    I’m looking for a submariner style watch for a while now, just discovered W&W – and the excellent reviews and pictures!

    Thank you for doing this giveaway!, I’ll leave it to Lady Fortuna from here…

  313. Michael D. says:

    Great review, and nice watch. Thanks for running the giveaway!

  314. This is the best giveaway yet; I always get excited at even the possibility of winning a great watch from this blog, but this watch didn’t seem like one that would make it to a giveaway. Awesome!

    I used to have Kingston from MKII, but i sold it. I would love get this one if i have a chance.

  325. brooke says:

    having handled other mkii’s this is one of the watches I lust for. It’s near perfection by my definition:

    “perfection is achieved not when nothing more can be added, but when nothing else can be taken away”

  326. Jonas says:

    Looks very well built!

  327. Torben says:

    Very nice watch!

  331. Tom Davey says:

    Very nice watch for the Give-a-way. thanks for the chance to win.

  332. Chris says:

    i do really hope to win this watch [^_^]y
    thanks for your generosity of giving it away.

    best regards

  365. CKH says:

    Years ago, I learned of Bill Yao from WatchUSeek and knew of Bill’s perfectionist approach from his days of making mod parts and custom watches through the growth of MKII. From the Quad10 to the Kingston, every watch he makes is done with passion and precision. The Nassau is another timepiece worth collecting!

  366. Joe C. says:

    That’s a sharp looking watch – I’m a big fan of the styling and size.

  367. Bloomzen says:

    Great review and gorgeous watch!

  403. Matt P says:

    Beautiful watch!

    Love the site.

  404. Mark S says:

    I like the red accent. It’s very distinctive!

  405. S Curet says:

    What a beautiful watch! Bill Yao is the real deal.

  406. Ben says:

    “Even a stopped clock gives the right time twice a day…”

    Wow, this has to be the best giveaway so far. I’d be proud to wear whatever Bill Yao produces. It makes a difference when someone puts so much care into what they do.

  414. Ilya says:

    Honestly, you’re reviews are some of my favorite. I can really get a feel for the watch. This review made the nassau an incredibly appealing option.

  415. Burhan says:

    Would be great to win this! Fingers crossed…

  416. Pete says:

    Thank you for having provided us with this awesome opportunity. The MKII Nassau is a great-looking piece – it and the ‘Ocean 1 Vintage Red’ are on my ‘must have’ dive watch list!

    I love this watch, I need this watch, please!? πŸ™‚

    Great review and awesome watch! Thanks.

  421. Abhay P says:

    Beautiful watch. Thanks for the giveaway.

  422. Jason N says:

    Oh, how I’ve lusted after the MKII Nassau and Kingston! Yet I never seem to have the spare cash around when it’s time to put down a deposit… Great watches, and I can’t wait to own one at some point.

  423. Alex S. says:

    Omg omg, a diver watch contest exactly when I plan to buy a Seiko Monster. Must be my lucky day…. πŸ™‚

  424. Seth G says:

    I watched the development and deliver of this watch and it’s predecessor, the Kingston. I’ve been amazed by how genuinely giddy the watch recipients have been. I had been hesitant about the “homage” watch category, but MKII does it exactly the way I would want and I have gone so far as to get myself on the list for one of their other, upcoming projects. Keep up the good work!

  425. I have a MKII Kingston and have sold off all my other watches because it never leaves my wrist! Mr. Yao makes an amazing product, and I’m sure the Nassau lives up to and exceeds expectations.

  426. John says:

    Could be the only way to get one of these, looks like they stopped taking orders temporarily on their site.

    It looks great.

  427. Mel says:

    Awesome homeage. Top quality watch.

  428. Beer says:

    I personally think that the white second hand makes the watch. Here’s hoping I win the giveaway!

  429. Tim says:

    Would love to win this watch…

  430. Mike says:

    Have been following MKII since they started, would love one.

  431. Chris says:

    I love your website and reviews and this watch looks like a sweet one to own. Good luck to everyone πŸ™‚

  432. Pat O'S says:

    American made, beautiful watch! Love the red.

  433. carla says:

    My husband would like two of these, please.

  434. K Gordon says:

    Classic! What’s not to like!

  435. James says:

    Love the fact that this watch is assembled in the US!

  436. That’s a watch that would look good on the boat or at the opera. Classic styling.

  437. johny says:

    Coolest style of watch, timeless design! Thanks for the review w&w!

  438. Gustavo says:

    great site, i open it every day to check if there are new reviews!
    great watch also, well built, classic awesome design, impossible not to like!

  439. Alvin says:

    What a great-looking watch!

  440. Christian says:

    Just bookmarked your rss feed and saw this… nice one, fingers crossed.

  441. As always a great review. Bill Yao is an outstanding watchmaker.

  442. Jim says:

    Now if Aston Martin could make a homage to the DB5 as good as MKII did to the watch, well…..

  443. Wow, what a fabulous opportunity, the MKII is absolutely spectacular.

    I have never been much of a fan of sub homage watches, except of course for the Rolex Submariner, it’s just a classic. But I read the review yesterday and something about this watch really spoke to me although it is out of my reach at the moment. Or so I thought!
    Really, ever since I found Worn and Wound last year I have never been so poor. I am slowly acquiring the watches that you review and I g
    roan every time there is on over my, at the moment, $500 limit.
    These giveaways give me hope and I look forward to each one, I never would have dreamed that you would give away an MKII.

    Please let it be to me.

  444. gidsu says:

    need one!!!

  445. Robert says:

    This is hands down the best Sub homage that I’ve seen. Thanks for another great giveaway chance!

  446. Robin says:

    Amazing watch!

  447. Joe Reid says:

    Nice looking watch!

  448. Drew says:

  526. David S says:

    Thank you for a really thoughtful review of the Nassau, and MKII.

  527. A high quality wearable watch for the price of a leather strap for one of the “high end” brands

  528. Wow…. I thought I was straight out of luck and I was going to miss out on this watch. I had this on my wishlist when it was announced, and I was on their email list. Then when orders were being taken I was informed that I was losing my job so I couldn’t justify spending the money. My saving grace was that I was able to audition with another group at my company and luckily I got a gig with the new group that I love.

    Unluckily for me, is that by the time I had the certainty of a secure job, new orders were stopped being taken. So I missed my opportunity to get this wonderful watch, which I was hoping to be my “promotion watch” before the job turmoil.

    I’m hoping that I can win it, especially since the day after the entry period ends is my birthday. This would make me extremely happy. (Cheesy moment here) Something to remember the hard work I had to do get a new gig when it was extremely unlikely that I would get a gig with the new group because the proposed hire was at the exact end of their busy season.

    Sorry for the pity story.

    • David S. says:

      Don’t worry, “I would cherish this watch,” the Nassau isn’t a closed edition. There will be more Nassaus, perhaps in a date version. πŸ˜‰

  529. So clean!! Nice without the date magnification. Love the red detail on the bezel

  546. sinner77 says:

    sure is wonderfull watch! closest to Bond you can get, all you have to do is to put it on bond nato, slip into smoking and order martini, sjhaken, not stirred. And wait for the beautifull spy to come along…

  547. Jeff says:

    Lovely watch. I would not mind adding it to my collection.

  548. John says:

    Ineffably well executed review of a beautiful timepiece. The refined attention to detail is a perfect companion to any watch collection no matter how fledgling to the obsession.

  561. Michael M says:

    Absolutely stunning watch from MkII…

  562. What a fine looking piece! A must for any collection.

  581. Very classic wrist watch

  582. Looks great. Thanks for the contest.

  583. SVM says:

    Fabulous watch!!!! Fingers crossed!

  584. pdubz says:

    A very thorough and considered Nassau review. Thanks.

    The Kingston is a respectful and superbly executed homage to the ‘Bond’ 6538 but I am beginning to feel that I like the Nassau more.

    If Bill Yao ever proposes a ‘Live and Let Die’ watch homage, I’ll certainly be voting for the Submariner again over the Pulsar Bond is wearing at the start of the movie… (BOND WATCH FACT: When Bond looks at his Pulsar it reads “5:48”. When we get a close up of his new Rolex 4 minutes later, the time reads “5:52”. Big respect to Continuity and in particular to the Editor).

  585. Roger Yang says:

    Finally, a decent sized submariner.

  586. Rob L says:

    The MKII Nassau is an excellent watch that would be a very nice addition to my collection. Thanks to MKII and W&W for the giveaway.

  587. Rick says:

    Me likey likey

  589. Erik says:

    Timeless design on a great website. Would like to have it. Thanks

  590. Bradford says:

    would love a chance to add that to my collection, would put it straight onto a bond NATO for summer wear

  591. Evan says:

    That would look awesome in my watch box! And even better on my wrist.

  592. mvg says:

    great review and great giveway

  593. LK Tam says:

    A salute to classic beautifully made. Thanks for the chance to win this wonderful watch.

  594. Stu1 says:

    Starting to get seriously obsessed with mkii watches, a really good and well balanced review,


  595. Dan says:

    The double domed sapphire crystal looks absolutely amazing on any dive watch, and a great lume like BG W9 is awesome, the combination of both in this watch makes it completely irresistible.

  596. Daniel says:

    Great watch! Great site!

  597. do want so much

  598. Ben Hough says:

  606. Marc says:

    What a great watch and what a great opportunity this is! Good luck to all participants!

  607. Scott says:

    I have a Kingston and love the Nassau. Bill is a brilliant professional.

  624. Great review! keep up the good work.

  625. Charles says:

    The review for this watch was my first time on the site. It was a great read and I had fun looking through the other reviews.

  656. Matt says:

    I would wear this with pride. Beautiful watch.

  657. J.Y. says:

  658. stepper says:

    Such a beautiful watch! I have been longing for an MKII for quite a while now. But with a new born baby it looks like this may be my only chance to get one (cue the violins)

    If you guys do decide to choose the winner on meritoriousness, I hope you could consider my story…

    On St. Patrick’s Day 2013 I stumbled upon a beautiful MKII LRRP for a better than awesome price. It was only when I took the watch home and started to research more info on the watch that I realized that it was a one of a kind, custom made LRRP; and it was stolen!!!

    Long story short, I contacted Mr. Yao for confirmation and within a few days had the hot watch back in the hands of its rightful owner, Pete.

    It felt good doing the right thing and it was nice to know that I was able to reunite Pete with his favorite watch in his collection…

    But alas here I am… I had it but I let it go…
    And violins play whenever I think of the MKII that I let slip away.
    (cue the emo sunset)

    ** this is a true story, discussion thread on WUS/MKII Official Forum

  659. erik says:

    great watch and great site, keep up the good work

  660. Erich Choi says:

    Absolutely a stunning vintage submariner homage.

  661. Charlie says:

    Would love to see that on my wrist!

  662. Sean Walsh says:

    It would be worn with pride !

  663. Sulak says:

    MKIi is very well made watch.

  664. I’d love to win a MKII watch, I’ve heard great things about them

  665. Alan S. says:

    I’ve always liked your columns and reviews; keep up the great work W&W!

  666. Ingens says:

    Thanks for offering up the giveaway! Stunning quality hommage from the MKII.

  667. M.B. says:

    everything on this watch
    is just right

    from some reason
    I was always successful
    in these kind of competitions

    I guess I’m just lucky!

  668. Jay says:

    Would love to win this!

  669. Nate M. says:

    I think a premium Submariner homage such as the MKII Nassau ($895) (or Raven Vintage $580) makes more sense as a watch purchase than the inexpensive Chinese replicas, affordable quasi-homages from large watch companies, and the Rolex Sub itself.

    Thanks W&W for reviewing relevant watches.

  670. Ken says:

    The workmanship on Mk II’s in general is excellent and Bill’s got the details down pat. This Nassau is no different and is very well put together. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

  671. Neverok says:

    A very nicely conceived watch with exceptional attention to detail and a very competitive price point to boot. Congrats!

  672. Alberto12 says:

    Love that watch, and most of the other’s they made.

  673. Tag dude says:

  676. Albin says:

    I really need a sub-esque watch,

  677. Chris says:

    I don’t have a diving watch yet, but this looks like a beautiful candidate. Come to daddy.

  678. ShawnK says:

    I would love to show that one off at the next meeting.

  679. JP Vazquez says:

    I have been trying to get my wife to get me this watch as a present since day one. I hope I win it.

  680. Sean_F says:

    I like the red “0” marker on the bezel – adds just a drop of color without being colorful – much like a red second-hand on a black-faced chronograph does. I also like the (primarily) brushed finish. Great name: Nassau! It evokes the tropics, blue ocean, James Bond and, of course, the homage to the Submariner. Did I mention how great it’d look on my wrist? Appreciate the opportunity just to win one! Thanks W&W.

  681. Mike says:

    Love this site. And the MKII looks amazing. I’d be crazy not to join the giveaway.

    Also, the last sentence of the post is suppose to link to the full terms and conditions of the contest, but it looks like the word “here” wasn’t actually made into a link. Thought you might want to know.
