@ Isti242

Nice HMT that you have. I started to look at them on ebay but apparently there are many fakes and “franken” so I’m not too confident (although they look good), plus they don’t seem to have the least water resistance?

Also I have my first Amphibia on the way Big Smile

Be carefull, Amphibias are addictive! When you start looking for custom bezels, relumed hands and dials you’re on the slope. Smile

Yes, many of the HMTs are franken / refurbished out there. This white pilot was a limited edition of 500 pieces (a project started on WUS years ago) so I knew what I was going for.

If those watches where knives there would be right away someone starting a Clone War

It’s nice to see that watch guys are easier on this topic Smile

Recently bought an Amazfit Bip in black for about £37. Also got a good quality NATO style two piece strap for a measly £2 which I think looks great. All in all, a lovely little smartish watch which records my steps and activities and is brilliant for notifications as my phone is almost permanently on silent.

What bands do you guys like? I have a digital and I want to use a better band for it so probably no leather. I don't really like metal because its heavy, and nylon gets dirty. Silicone I think maybe be a good one, and also rubber I think you get allergic to the more you use it. 

 

Thoughts? I only say no to metal because of the looks, but maybe black coated wouldn't be bad. I use gshock and f91w.

That Tudor is gorgeous. I wish I could afford one. I limit myself to $1200.00 maximum on a watch purchase.

The most I've spent on a watch is $30 to $35.

You may find a nice Oris diver for that.

I had this Oris several years ago. I’m sorry I sold it since it was a great watch. I used to do a lot of buying and selling when I was younger. I’m not in that mindset any longer.

Nice one, Glenn!

Massdrop had this Aquis one for sale not too long ago. Quite elegant, IMO… I think it was around $1,300 – way above my budget. Smile

Anybody have experience with Deep Blue drivers? They had Swiss movement but the current ones are mostly Japanese movement.

X95. You do have some very nice watches.

But why all the propaganda and crusading in your signature? Please let this just be a place about flashlights (and maybe watches, knives and edc stuff), and keep politics and religion for ourselves.

I could never afford all the high end watches that I wanted so I settled on the closest thing, the watch faces. I got the least expensive smartwatch I could find that would accept android faces. I put 500 free faces on it with room for many more. I love that all the details are lit up because of the AMOLED display. My favorites are the ones with imitation tritium vials that look similar to the real thing in the dark. They will never dim and no worrying about radiation…well what little there is of it.
