You may laugh but I think I have just recently started to separatelly save to different account for Grand Seiko Flat Stare

Care to share the model ? spring drive ?

My favorite is the SBGJ017 high beat automatic GMT

Not sure yet but not chrono, or a black dialed one. May not be over 40mm in size.
“Snow flake” looks very nice but I´m not really sure. No sure even if a new or used one but I think I still have plenty of time to think it Wink

Some nice timepieces here.
I have always worn a watch, since my father gave his Seiko auto diver when I went into the Army in the early 80’s. I fell incapacitated in the middle of a 2 week field exercise, and it mysteriously disappeared in the medivac process.
My most recent acquisition:
Spinnaker Spence, 42mm, NH36, PVD case, Matte OD green dial, and 3mm thick water resistance treated leather band, along with a NATO strap. I took off the buckle and added a dual deployment clasp, because the strap is so thick & stiff.

Got a 20mm nylon watch band for my Timex Expedition Crono from this eBay seller for $1.42 each. The quality is excellent, especially for the price. They come in 18mm as well. They’re available 4 different colors. I purchased 3 in brown, black, and green.

Simple and no-nonsense. I loved it LOL

Jack, I’m a simple, no-nonsense kind of guy. Saving money anyway I can is in my blood ever since I retired. BTW, so far I love it too. Time will tell if it lasts.

I received a Tritium watch I will be reviewing soon…a Carnival with day/date functions. Took it to Canada for a nice visit to the Rocky Mountains. Very impressed with it so far…kind of a new favorite…

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.

I just received this $199 Tisell 40mm Pilot Type A watch from S. Korea. This is a very nice watch for the price. Miyota 9015, slighty domed sapphire with AR coating, heat threated blue hands and nice brushed SS 316L case. If you guys looking for a budget pilot type watch, this is the one to have. The accuracy is amazing on mine = +0.5s after a day.

I ordered this inexpensive 20mm stainless steel watch band for my Timex Expedition Chronograph. Cost only $16.90 with free shipping. It looks great for the price. Hopefully, it’s not a POS.

pretty sure that is the same thing i got, from ebay, it’s pretty good.

after 3-4 months, the pin holding the ‘2nd clasp’ fell out, i managed to fix it myself, but i also emailed the ebay seller and he sent me a whole new clasp mechanism.

Here. He raised his price to $18.90. Still a great deal if you ask me. Just noticed he’s charging a dollar now for shipping.

Excellent customer service. Is it the same seller I got mine from? See my last post.

i like it but the links are the TINIEST bit sharp edged, plus the clasp part can be a bit snaggy/sharp edged too.

and it;s heavy, which is good if you like that.

it does look good, i will give it that, for about 80% less than the original (european?) design. (MILTAT, maybe..?)

Got my new watch band. I had to remove 5 out of the 6 removable links to fit my 7.25” wrist. The pins that hold the links together are push pins, not screw types as shown in the listing. Other than that, it’s a solid band. Looks and feels much more expensive than the $17 I paid for it.
Looks better in person than it does in the pictures.

Cool! I had to adjust the clasp with a pair of needle nose pliers to make it tighter. It was opening too easily. It’s nice and tight now Smile For the money, I can’t complain. Besides, it’s on a $60 Timex.

My “super engineer” also arrived from Aliexpress. I’m quite impressed although the clasp could be better but I can’t complain for this price. Smile
