As for Sealander, I quite like that and think it’s a great term to capture the range.
And one can then buy a caravan to go with the watch.....

As in "Pork Chop-ard?"

One supposes that instead of Côtes de Genève decoration, the movement could have Côtes de Porc?

Perhaps an upmarket version with a Gyros-Tourbillon?

I'm sure HAMilton would be interested.

Maybe Del-Boy Trotter could flog knock-offs on Peckham High Street?

To me, the name invokes more of a land exploration watch that can also dabble in water. And that's how I view what this collection is. I preordered the white GMT last night and when it arrives it will be my primary tool watch. The Hamilton mechanical is great when water isn't going to be much of a concern, but I'm not going to push it (even though 50m can handle a decent amount if the seals are good).
