Yeah, but they don't have the legs this one does over here!
It surely is. I should have recognized your name.
Today's watch... My wife's new watch (German name with Chinese inside!) GMT...
Dug granddad's Sicura out of the safe this week and bought a NATO for it. Lookin good, and ticking away all day, and more importantly, all night on my table. Not bad considering it's spent 99.9% of the last 15-20 years just sitting, unwound.
Holicrap that's an interesting watch! Jump hour!
Thanks, it's unique, for sure. I've already been asked about it twice today (from fellow geek engineers). It's only 10:30
Takes a little to get used to reading it quickly, and thank goodness I still have good vision since it's not a very big watch.
Today's watch: a simple Eterna Matic
Very, very cool. I can imagine it's quite the conversation piece.
Treat yourself to a camera that can take a good macro shot.
Nice watch. I like the style.
Got the Seiko eventually, they shipped it from Japan. I didn't like the height of the case at first but it has grown on me. It's a keeper.
I'll change the strap to a brown leather one at some point.
Oh, the pink background? My wifes laptop lid
I went in to the shop tonight and asked
after tax, SIN$372,000
New arrival today.
Bernhardt Binnacle Anchor
I have a few nice Rolex watches for dressing up but need a non-metallic beater for work. The Casio G-Shock are kind of cool and I like the analog dial. The Casio web site only shows them available at Macys, are they stocked at any "regular" stores like Walmart or Sears?
Bernhardt watches are great values and made in the USA That Binnacle Anchor is a sharp watch. I have a Bernhardt Sea Shark and like it very nuch.
This came in the mail from Russia yesterday. Added the NATO strap today. It's really cool.
They're certainly assembled in the USA. As you know they use Japanese movements. I don't know where Fred gets the cases and bracelets but their quality is remarkable for the price.
I have a Sea Shark, too.
One more Sea Shark here. Fantastic value.
At least one of the Bernhardt's use Swiss made Ronda 715 movement
Thanks for pointing that out for the community. Regrettably, I'm a bit anti-quartz, so I had forgotten.
Alright, my birthday is on the horizon so a watch is a definite possibility. Which of the following would you recommend: Hamilton Khaki Field Automatic 42mm or Smiths Everest? They are roughly the same price, both autos, both look good on leather (even though the Smiths comes on a bracelet). As an outlier I am also considering something like a Casio Pathfinder PRW2500-1 for a hunting/outdoors watch. Any thoughts, opinions, personal experience with any of these would be greatly appreciated.
