Thx Krono.

I received a long time ago the Skmei i ordered on Aliexpress for 11€.

I’m not impressed either way, it’s pretty much what i expected, the case looks cheap especially the coating and the fact that the lugs look soldered on the case, the seconds hand is missaligned, the bracelet looks and feels cheap, i haven’t measured timekeeping precision but the watch is still working since i received it, good point i guess.

yeah that ‘gold tone’ is already looking thin on the edges

the quartz movement though, should be accurate and reliable

Review of this watch posted here.

No one, after lighting a lamp, puts it away in a cellar nor under a basket, but on the lampstand, so that those who enter may see the light.

My new EDC Timex Expedition Chronograph TW4B04300. I purchased it 2 weeks ago and it hasn’t lost or gained a second according to This Website
It’s reasonably priced from this ebay Seller

So far I’m pleased with the quality for such a low priced watch. BTW, the glass bead finish looks much better in person.

So, my Wife goes to China on business 3 or 4 times a year. She brought this watch back for me. I’ve never worn it.

Now if they only made a watch of that fat POS from North Korea with a gun to his head pulling the trigger, I’d buy it in a second

I’ve just recently bought a brand new Maranez Rawai 45 off a mate for a decent price.

Currently wearing it on its dark brown strap (it also has a spare light tan strap included) and letting it develop a patina gradually and naturally (it is a brass watch).

It is big, yes, but it is LUSH!!!

I love it to bits and I am so pleased I got it.

Here’s a pic off the web (don’t have time to upload my own at the minute)

My latest inexpensive watch. It’s a Timex Expedition model# T499629J. I paid around $37 for it. Super accurate. It gained less than a second in the month I’ve owned it so far.

Thanks Glenn, I kind of like chunky bands, 6mm thick so a nice weight. Have same strap on the 009 as well, prefer it to the hollow feel jubilee bracelet.

You should try a Lumpy strap, real nice and heavy.

Thanks, had a search and it looks just like the super engineer 2. I have something similar on a citizen(only 20mm on the citizens, Seiko 22mm)

I might get the curved engineer 2 for one of the seiko’s as i really like the look on them.

Here is my Apple Watch, V1. It has a Spigen case protector on it, and a green Apple watch band.

Still wearing only the 816.351 of my Sea-Gulls.
Has been running on my wrist for what, I think 5 years now?

Here we go.

That’s a Casio 5028, easily my oldest surviving wristwatch to date. I honestly can’t remember how old it is, but I’m sure it’s a 2010 model at the latest. Sturdy as heck, faithful and comfortable like a dream when properly adjusted… Although the wristband can get smelly with time Sick
