Thanks Ven. I like your latest model better than the ones I’m seeing on their website. Do you have a model number for that ?

Ven, thanks so much! I’ll order it next week from ebay. Only $69.99! Great deal for such a fine looking watch.

Yes, very good value that, they usually go for around £100-£120 ish in the UK for that model back a couple of years or so. Certainly worth $70 if you like the look. Here you get a life time guarantee as long as you send the watch off for a service every 3yrs and get it stamped. Its dolphin waterproof, by that it means you can swim and dive all day.

No i dont work for them Wink Having had many different(1/2 decent) brands, many steamed up or somehow let water in………….these have never missed a beat at all and one has had a real hard life.

Very nice field watch, looks neat, that’s the nice thing with watches even the not so expensive ones can be great buys.

When looking for the readeel on ali i found this one (Tissot visodate lookalikish) that i also might be tempted to order:

Thx for the info on the Seiko 5 Atbglenn.

I use to dive quite bit so have always had some type of divers watch. 

Wife has the same but black and stainless and 40mm  both have ETA movements. I have another in black that's quartz if I do happen to dive.

I've owned all prices of watches including a black and stainless Rolex Submariner. And these Invicta's espicially if the have a swiss movement be it automatic or quartz have always given me good service. Probably got 12 and have had as many as 25 or 30.

 

I'm to watches what most of you are to these lights. lol I'm learning but still have a way to go. I'm a quick study lol

I have always enjoyed watches Terry, even from younger years casio watches(you remember those great calculator ones from the 80’s?). Then i went through a good few years of going naked………..watch-less. The rotary(chrono) served me that well i never really took much interest for years until recently. Then decided to get a fresh one without the beat up look….

Flashlights is another story, thinned my heard now to around 50, most modded or custom with the minority being factory. Be it drivers,leds,triples,quads,titanium to bare ano. Pretty much have most my illuminating needs covered. Boys and their toys………….all fun Thumbs Up ……………and practical of course Big Smile

Ha ha, classic……..we only live once, life is too short for regrets! Luckily i dont have too many illnesses, or ones that are expensive(i know watches can be one of the worst), i dont have the money for it to become that way Cash

Another addition, citizen this time and polished case/bracelet

Have a 009 on the way, thats off Rach and the kids for xmas though so wont have till then. Reason for a 009 over a 007(may get at a later date anyway) is simply the pepsi bezel grew on me from when i first looked into one. Kind of like the blue face and bezel to break up the normal black basically……….

Very nice!

This watch is probably the most eye-pleasing if I would choose another now. …and almost regardless of price

This hamilton is a timeless classic Thumbs Up

The Citizen NY0040 is up there with the SKX, i wonder if they are discontinued, they have been sold out in lot of places for a long time…i really need to get one, the NY2300 is a great catch, even harder to find, i’m jealous Innocent

Thanks James, really like the citizens and the bonus of being able to wind via the crown over shaking it ! Got a 20mm super engineer 2 coming for the pepsi bezel………..might get a 22mm watchadoo bracelet once the 009 comes(well after xmas anyway).

Apparently the 0040 might be discontinued also, oh well i went and ordered both BNIB, presented it as an investment to the better half, and it might not be completly oportunistic optimism… Innocent

Arrival of the 009 came today, tried on and adjusted the bracelet to suit(only needed a couple of holes back on the clasp part).

Little line up of the recent time telling devices

Thats it for now!!! Just await a strap and may order another in new year………..time to(pun intended) enjoy, dont want too many sat there…….

Different bracelet for the 2300 came(have 2 more on the way also 20mm, just in case i want to swap) today in post. Similar as the super engineer 2

Prefer curved to fit the watch but no big deal(more choice for straight)

I have a few watches so I don’t always wear the same one every day.
This one gets a lot of wrist time since my old tired eyes have no issues reading it, day or night.

I have several new watches…partially because we are evaluating manufacturers…and also because I really dig ‘em Big Smile

Here is a Chinese “Bliger” GMT Sub I picked up off of the bay for cheap:

A little early to tell…but initial impressions are quite good. I must say, it looks quite nice.

I sized it and will wear it the next few days to see how it holds up. I might do a review on it and a few other autos I have…another Bliger, a few Parnis’ and some others.

Cheers,
Krono
