It is a about the right size for me. I have not found larger watches to be comfortable for everyday wear. I do think the band looks just a touch narrow for the case size. I will probably get used to it though and will more than likely replace it after I get some wear on it.


The beige version of this (Style: SNK803K2) is on sale at World of Watches for $54.11.

I actually might have preferred black or blue. Beige would be my absolute last choice. That is a good $10 or so cheaper than I paid for mine (before shipping) though.

...oh yeah, it should tell time too
I'll bet Casio does, all of that but maybe the depth gauge.

I have the black version of the military. I've torn it up pretty good at work. I found this new version while looking around for a new watch. Model SNZG15K1. Its a little bigger, at 45mm.

I was looking at a Seiko 5 "Military" as my next "outdoor" watch but I decided to give this one a chance. I hope I won't forget to wind it! ;)
What is the case size on that? I actually like it. Does it come in black face? AND where did you find it for that price?

Explain it for all of us dummies, please. What does that watch do 24 times a month?

Yeah, this one has been at the top of my list for a while (or maybe the model from a year or two ago). In reality, I need to get this, along with a real dive watch, and a real heart rate monitor. I'm pretty sure taking anything with as sensitive a component as a barometer to diving depths would break, not to mention it's only rated to 50m, meaning it will pop the second you jump in the water. I like the new colors though

Don't get me wrong...I didn't take it as an attack or anything...I just don't understand the joke, really.


Maybe it's the french canadian in me, I don't know. But I actually don't understand the 24/month gay thing. This or I'm just slow. Anyway.

Shall you explain it to me or not?

I was considering the black model at first but I finally switched to the more classy silver one. Good thing 'cause now the black is still available for you.

Here's my take...all spelt out: That cyrillic "gibberish" on the face could say "I eat elephant cum," and the majority of people would have no clue. It's alot less funny when you have to spell it out though.

BTW, you don't want to know how much those cheap chinese movements go for in Asia. Don't get it wet. And try to fuck with the pushers as seldom as possible. (Not talking about the Seiko, but the one with triple subdial). If you ever do catch wind of it, your mantra should be "it's a hell of alot cheaper than buying a ticket to Asia!"

I assumed something like that, but the math of how any such message is sent 24/mo is lost on me too... someone please splain all this.
