Just a 1 watch guy. Damasko DA38.
On the wrist this week the mini turtle.
^^ Both of you guys, that's a good looking watch, both bands.
I've sold some of what I had and gotten down to wearing two, there's a few others but they seldom get worn, they're mostly sentimental watches. Might have to try that Damasko
I've always wanted an Alain Silberstein watch but just can't justify the cost.
I have an oris aquis. Oris is a nice watch for good value and a bit off the radar here in US
Vostok Neptune SE 960726
Helm Komodo made landfall yesterday + new leather band for my modded Seiko... it's a good week to wear two watches!!!
Love their Baselworld 2019 novelties, especially the Divers Sixty-Five 'Bico' In Steel And Bronze.
neat! wish they're no date versions were easier to come by
I know it isn't as fancy as most watches shown but, I picked up a Casio G-shock GD400 this weekend I am rough on watches . I had a Casio tough solor for a while but the battery died and was soldered in . I replaced that with a Casio MCW-100H it gas served well . I finally had to put a new battery in it this weekend. The main reason I have not bought a G-shock before is that every one I tried on I could only buckle it in the last hole on the band. I don't like that. I was at Kohl's getting a battery for my watch and they had a couple G-shocks with bigger bands . I ended up buying the GD-100 with the green band
None of us like it. Casio makes it hard to use anything but a Casio strap on their cheap watches, and their cheap watch straps are not the greatest. For example, my DW290-1V:
This 28 year-old model still sells for $30 or $24 if you wait for a sale. It looks better after a year when the blue paint has worn off.
Lug width is 18mm – not bad – but the spring bars are too tight against the case for you to thread an 18mm NATO or other one-piece strap. Casio's PVC strap is made from recycled vinyl that doesn't stretch and the buckle is plastic. Hadley-Roma made a replacement that was worth $10: stretchy virgin vinyl, stainless steel buckle, and longer. It's out of production, and no one but Casio makes replacement straps for most G-Shocks.
Most Timex watches are easy to fit with a long replacement strap.
My custom vintage Bulova 1d16m 40mm Sub. These were made in the 80's with a standard eta 2824 and mineral crystal.
Being the builder I am, I installed a chronometer grade eta 2892-a2 movement, custom lumed super compressor hands, upgraded to a sapphire crystal and triplock crown. Just the right amount of vintage vibe with modern updates.
Of course this is next to my custom tanto re-grind on my fav folder DPx HEST F.
