Hey, you know who likes the watches from Janis Trading, particularly all of the Sub homages that make up the NTH line? Well, actually, that’s just about everyone. You know who really likes them? Aside from Victor (you can see some of his writing on them here), I am guessing the winner of our June giveaway will also be quite the fan.
You see, Doc stepped up for us this month, and is offering one of his NTH Oberon’s to one lucky reader. As Victor wrote in his hands-on review, the NTH Oberon draws it’s details from the best of the earlier Submariners – including a honeycomb dial with the 3-6-9 indices and a gilt handset.
If you want more details on the various watches that had some of these design details, you really need to check out Victor’s writeup – the guy has a great amount of information tucked away on these vintage watches, and it shows in the writeup.
Now, let’s get ourselves back to current events – our giveaway. As usual, we’ve got our fairly standard process for entering:
- Comment below what your favorite detail from a vintage Submariner is (or even the whole model, why not)
- Head on over to our giveaway page to complete your entry
This month’s giveaway is sponsored by Janis Trading, and is limited to residents (and shipping addresses) in the US of A. Our thanks to Doc, and good luck to you!

I really like that triangle at 12 o’clock
Definitely the fluting!
I love the simplicity of the watch face on a Rolex Submariner. No extra details there, or needed.
The unique hands of Submariner.
utilitarian character of the bezel
I love the waffle dial texture recreated on these models.
The waffle dial, reminds me of those first milgauss Rolex Watches.
Love the no-crown guard case with the large crown!
The simplicity of the whole watch
Just the overall simplicity, not trying to be something it’s not.
Love the details.
The waffle dial – classic look
It’s a sleek looking watch!
Really like the textured waffle dial!
Easy-to-read numbers, reminds me of a military-style watch but still has a dressy feel to it.
Best detail from a vintage sub? Elegant, thin case profile. From the NTH line? Ditto. But, yeah… That waffle dial though????
I like the triangle at 12
I like the dial details, particularly the waffle pattern.
Wabi sabi, a cream colored dial that seems to tell a story
Crown seems like thing that makes it stand out
I love all the details!
I like the hands
Love the watch, cant wait to get it.
I looked at the Hands, Dial, Bezel the style of the numbers (dial/bezel) and I can’t
pick out just one thing that stands out. Everything about it just works together.
Love the watch, cant wait to wear it
If we’re talking vintage Submariners then I gotto go Rolex Mil-Sub. I mean c’mon!!
The honeycomb dial is a nice touch. I’m also a fan of the NTH logo. Nice and symmetrical.
The clean, uncluttered face is great. So easy to tell the time
The clean dial.
Favorite details of a vintage sub; big crown with no crownguards and the classic sized case that has drilled lugs!!!
I just like the idea that it’s the world’s most respected watchmaking company making one of the world’s most versatile/rugged watches…cant beat that combo!
The entire watch – it’s all great
I’d love to get my hands on a Miyota 9015 watch.
I really love the dial and hands… Great looking watch!
vintage lume is so cool
My favorite detail from a vintage Submariner is definitely the bezel, it has such a timeless, classic look.
The combined silhouette of the case, crown and bezel is very well done. It has an aura of understated masculinity.
I’ve been toying with the idea of building my own and dang if Doc didn’t do it for me. If I don’t win it I’ll probably buy one.
looks quite large
without doubt, my favourite detail is the bezel for its classic look
the honeycomb background is my favorite detail.
I love how well-proportioned vintage Submariners are; from the indices and dial layout, to the cases themselves. Clear, legible, purposeful tool-watches.
The classic look
The patina on a glossy gilt dial from the early 1960s.
When I was 12 years old my uncle , my cool uncle, let me try on his watch and it was heavy ans it had a bevel and it GLOWED IN THE DARK and I felt like James Bond.
It was a Submariner and it is the watch I have always since then associated with cool.
I love the vintage glow. thanks.
I love the vintage lume!
It’s a manly watch
love the dimensions – a bit thinner than average!
My favorite detail would be the Mercedes hour hand. Beautiful compromise between function and ornateness.
I simply enjoy the look of the bezel on sub-mariners.
I love the look of it.
Best thing is the luminous dial–many years of night nursing made that a feature that would make or break a watch for me!
I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS WATCH! GORGEOUS PIECE OF JEWELRY.
I have always appreciated how the numerals on the dial and bezel are sort of offset relative to one another when centered; it gives the model more visual balance, in my opinion. Often, timing bezels appear busy, but that isn’t the case with most Submariners.
Bold, functional style. Easy to read and looks good!
I love the color combination on this watch. I also like the luminous dial.
My favorite detail on this handsome watch is the easy-to-read dial.
The hands, markers, numbers and bezel offers a vibrant lum while the black textured dial is exquisitely enhanced with vanilla color, followed by the red name. The combination will make this watch a nice conversation piece. Let’s not forget the top notch Miyota movement
The overall style, it is just so classy and beautiful
I love the face and style of the watch.
I love the Submariner’s expandable stretching links on the oyster-style bracelet.
I love the vintage subs with no crown guards. I think its such a clean look and is so different from the beefy lugs on modern subs.
I like the big date window.
I like the color contrasts of the entire watch.
I love the overall classic look of it.
whole thing looks great I also like that its glow in the dark
I love the face and style of the watch.
First off the case thickness 11.5mm is far better than the 14mm of competitors at the around the same price range. The combo of colors makes the watch an interesting piece worth a closer look especially with friends and work. Exquisite face. The night lum, I cannot say as far as duration, but according to given photo on the the Janis website it certainly gives a presence worth noting. Yeah, this is one piece I will be saving my money for when the model comes out again …… assuming I do not win the giveaway.
I love the classic look it’s something my husband would love.
I heart the blue face!
Don’t have a particular favorites – depends on the colors.
I love the overall style of it. They have a classy appearance.
I like the fact that the Submariner has a phosphorescent style.
I like the overall look of the watch, classic, not ostentatious.
My favorite detail is that is it waterproof to 1000 ft.
The detail in the face is my favorite.
