WOW weklund, just wow. Love the speedmaster………stunning.
I have been pondering an expensive watch(if i can stop buying cheap ones!). The omega seamaster diver seems to be the one. Trouble is, how can i tell kids their holiday is on my wrist lol. I would love a blue sub, but even if i could afford the 10k for a 1991 flavour, i would not wear it anyway! Be too scared and i am pretty clumsy, truth be told.

Back to my real world

Thanks … SMP is one of my favorite watches in my collection. I usually wear my old friend, vintage 1980 Mdl. 1680 Rolex Sub, on a daily basis. I am a retired General Contractor and Carpenter by trade. This ole sub has been in daily service on my wrist since I purchased it back in 1980. Tough watch which has served me well and still looks great.

... Happy Landings ...

Lots of microbrands have done it, and many modding parts suppliers like Yobokies, Dagaz and Long Island Watch offer them.

No clue why big brands like Seiko, etc. are so slow to get on the bandwagon…

I’m not sure how to post pics on here. I have the Samsung Gear S3. Aside from being able to use it as a phone, it also has gps and turn by turn navigation. If I get sick of a watch face, I can choose from thousands to download and change them instantly. Only downside, it needs charged every few days.

I just bought this watch, the Timex T49981.

I wanted a second Timex digital watch that vibrates, and this one looks good to me.  :BEER:

Can’t wait until they start expanding/selling in the US their smaller G-Shocks, like some of the JDM sqaures and the GA-2100:

I’ve really been looking at the Lineage line from them too, solar and atomic time in a much cheaper but still great looking watch. Some even have stopwatch and timer functions on the digi display I think.

They are quite cool looking, if you ever need any help just pm me. I can get one to you if available in UK. You wont be the 1st i have shipped stuff for, not just flashlights, Treg parts and all kinds(not to make profit to add, just to help a fellow brother out). I keep pondering another square, maybe 5000 or 5610. I also like the titanium camo flavours, but damn those are pricey. If i was to ever spend £1000+ on a single piece, as much as i love G shocks, i see just cant see that amount of value. Even if they go up over time. Guess i am saying i love them……….but not that much haha

None G day, back to auto for now

Who knows what tomorrow brings!!!

Yeah those “boutique” squares are cool looking, but a hard pill to swallow when there are better performing Gs for the same price with more sensors and features.

I’m waiting for a solar version of the “Casioak” Big Smile

Yup. That Tough Solar that I posted earlier is on the smaller/medium side (42mm case). Has world time, alarm, timer, and stop watch.

These are so cool, that offset reminds me of the Giugiaro-deisgned Seikos.

the display is quite small but it does do 99:99:99 or at least 23:99:99 and display all 6 digits at once, in stopwatch mode

Hey watch guys. Has anyone of you tried a Carnival watch?

And how much difference would it make if the write Mineral Glass or Sapphire, is $20 price difference reasonable?

https://www.ebay.com/itm/323638535615 mineral

https://www.ebay.com/itm/283005827166 sapphire

I prefer the black dial with dark band and blue tritium markers.

Thanks for input Smile

I haven’t personally. As for sapphire , on watches the sapphire is quite thin which can be more prone to shattering . However it is of course more scratch resistant. If it’s not going to get beat on, maybe dress kind of watch. I would be happy to pay $20 for sapphire, so my answer would be yes. Unfortunately I can not tell you how good(or not) those watches are. But bare in mind, you can get nice used seiko/citizen dress style watches for around the same cost(usually not with sapphire though). Just a thought . Those have a strong history.

 I love Luminox watches. This is my latest one.  Stainless steel Blackout. 

It's heavy, but I really like it. The band is from one of my other Luminox watches. It's pretty comfortable.
