Just caught this thread…nice watches. I’ll take some pics of mine and put them on. I don’t have nothing too fancy, but I look out for watches at junk shops, do minor repairs/battery replacements and will start to sell them on ebay.

Anybody else sell watches?

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.

Krono, that’s already impressive! I bet you use Li batts in them even knowing that we can’t bring into the ground with us. Smile

Btw : I’ve used a G-Shock since they 1st appeared! And for GORD’s sake, you’re only a handful of posts away!

That’s not me lol but I edc a suunto vector. If it’s good enough for MacGyver it’s good enough for me.

Seriously though I use the barometer and compass a lot and I can wear it on the outside of my jacket while hunting and the temperature will be accurate.

I picked this one up on Amazon about a year ago for $60. It's built like a brick shit house and keeps close to perfect time. 

 

A couple of Casio G-Shock watches.

Any clue as to which watch forums are best for noobs like me? I joined watchuseek and so far they seem very friendly and helpful.

What about selling watches…ebay or somewhere else?

I love Sg-1 just thought MacGyver would be more universal. Awesome watch though.

I'm a huge fan of SG-1 as well as Stargate Atlantis. Staregate Universe was good, but not nearly as good as the other two Smile 

 

Sorry to be off topic, but I canceled my Netflix account because they dropped SG-1 and Atlantis...

dont have pics of them on but here are my few

Bulova 96g42

Armitron 20/1897ti

Invicta Pro Diver 11555

the invicta was a gift from my step father. he is big into the big invictas. this one at 46mm is pushing how big a watch i would wear.
the armitron is a little small at 36mm. but its my work watch so its all beat up, and dont get in the way
the bulova is about right sized, but not a fan of rubber straps. that one was a gift from my uncle

ive also got small wrists, ive got to take usually 4 links out of the bands to fit me

I don´t know about that but I´ve got very significant help on that old Sea-Gull ST5 from WUS.
I like the place…

I think ebay for sales is OK, many also sell via forums.
Check elitedealseeker for overview for forum sales.

I used scotch tape. I made sure it wasn't compressing my skin. Took it off and used a ruler... So mine is about a half an inch smaller than yours

I have also roughly that size, 6,5” maybe, not sure.

Anyway, it means that I´ll have to keep an eye open for watches at 42mm MAX, preferred size is somewhere around 37-40mm depending on how large they wear.

Really is a bit of a pain, 7+” wrist would make much more models available to choose from Smile

6.25" is tight around wrist with soft tape measure. My current watch band is 17cm (~6.5") and is just the way I like it.

Yeah, it's pretty hard to get small "manly" watch Big Smile

I’m a fan of simple, stylish watches like that, however, I’m also practical so I need digital. I just can’t get used to watches again since I’ve went without for a few years now. That black one is slick though. 

+1 very nice!!

I have a basic Timex windup watch that I bought in Basic Training in Georgia. I think I paid around $12 for it. This would have been just about twenty five years ago. It would take me a while to even remember all the countries that watch has been to with me.

Timex takes a licking and keeps on ticking.

I’m a junky, I mod lights so I can sell lights so I can buy more light to mod so I can sell lights to buy more lights to mod.
