Too fashionista for me. Thought a few were cool years ago when they first came out, but then they went way overboard with way too many square styles/colors, etc.

Still like some of their quartz designs though.
Some watches looks are very surprising. I didn't like the way the B&R looked as much on my wrist as much as I did in the pictures, but it was a neat watch. Like my Rissian Diver GMT, I love the way it looks on my wrist, but when I pulled it out of the packege for the first time (had never seen one in real life before but an original one from 1959) I thought it was rediculously large. Now that I wear it basically as my go to watch daily, even my Breitling Bently looks small and it is 48mm or so!

This is pretty hard to do one-handed. Just celebrated 20 years with this.

Hey Barry - you ever hear back from Yobokies?

Just curious - no spare cash for watch purchases at this time

Cheers
