dazzling gold plated ETA movement.  photos don't do it justice.  I will set up when I get time and take some real shots...these are all the ones from ebay listings.  They will look much crisper captured with a 55mm f2.8 MicroNikkor

After many years, I'm starting to think that Set-O-Matic is a function and not a model name.

Here's an Oceanographer also stamped Set-O-Matic on the dial.

There are also a number of other models with this function.
