    You kind of wish it still was Radium, in some ways. Hard to believe it was used, really. A free suntan with every watch...

    Thank you Jim, liking the vostok, keep eyeing up the chrono, the europe titanium to name 1.

    I like it mhpreston, nothing wrong with adding a little colour to the sea of black. I actually think it suits it and makes even more cool

    Yes, of course you are right. We actually still had radium on some old Navy diver gauges when I was in. They pulled them off the boat just before I got out. :-)

    Fun little journey, woke up early(as per norm......every day!) so decided to start right back and read through(up to page 9 as i type). Mr fixer, from 2015, is your fav still the seiko made rip curl? Be cool to see what the best part of 5yrs has changed......or not.

    I noticed a post from a rotary(still have it and still works after another battery change since) complaining about the £90 charge for battery swap/service(well do to speak as its not an auto). I also wanted a G shock again back in 2013/14..........well i guess i have that covered

    Speaking of Gs, the frog has jumped ship, to a camo square

    What a great. journey, took a while and passed the early hours nicely. Enjoyed reading this thread at the start to now.
    Could now see the pics of your grandads watches scout, wow they look mint, very very special. I would have missed those if not re-read through.

    Its also funny to see how much my mind changes and what i am thinking of getting next, within a page or 2 its on the wrist.

    Does knowing your crazy, not make you crazy?

    It is a bit of a chunk, not for tucking under a shirt sleeve haha. But it is super easy to read, light weight as well. I need to add a carbon mud quad sensor soon.

    Yes quite possibly, i like the colour as a little different to what i have(other than the 100 camo shade). But the quad sensor carbon has been on a want list since released, held off as there was not enough difference(colours). So i guess if there really was one to tempt me, the army will. Will see at time if i have a few spare pennies about.

    Enjoy this thread:

    Most of my watches are Seiko, a couple automatics, chronograph & one Ti.
    Also a Traser H3 Titan in all titanium (the one w/ the date @ the top)

    I'd say overall G-Shock has been on my wrist the most the last 35 years, I bought my first in high school approx. mid 80's
    Recently found one in a drawer w/ no band & its still running,, crazy!!

    But to answer the question of what I'm wearing, it's been a Seiko Recraft SKA705* w/ a divers band I took off an analog Casio diver.
    .. been wearing it last 20 months taking it off only a few times, to wear my Ti Seiko, which is more of a dress watch.
    I rarely bother taking off my watches, I just simply leave them on

    Very cool, wow 35yrs is awesome. I know many who's are still running to, one thing for sure, casio make a reliable bit of watch

    Would love to see some pics if you can orbital, after the photobucket nonsense, i use imgur. Its free and easy, but not cracked the mobile posting bit. So i take pics, upload to imgur. Then on the mac, copy the bbc code, paste here and pic appears. Some sites req the direct link being pasted in the pic(seen above next to film reel).

    The G-shock found in the drawer isn't my original one, that one is long gone.
    I'v had at least 3

    Before G-Shock came out, Casio had just a basic watch with most of the same functions >>> when I saw the very first G-Shock, I had to get one

    I get it, for me it was bringing back memories of the 80's. A-team, night rider, g shocks and BMX's. ET and superman on the cinema, love a bit of retro.

    Quick swap for a meal out to the trident titanium pro

    Ven,

    I like the one you are wearing in post #908!

    Just wondering, how many G-Shocks do you have, and how many Seikos, and what other brands do you have?

    Me, I have Rolex, however, I really like Seiko watches. I have three digital models from the 1970's and a Sports 100 Diver from 1984. The 70's digital s really were well made, and had wonderful styling, just fun to look at.

    Thanks, love to look into at your daily selections!

    Best,

    908- g shock GG1000 mudmaster . Depending on the code after the 1000 would be different colours. Mine has the green strap. There are a few other options . Seiko wise I am on 3 , 7002/009/land shark. All autos which I am fond of.
    Check out seiko GS(grand seiko) range, spring drive and very very nice watchís. Out of my price range , but hey i can dream :-) .

    Nice case ven, and nice watches.
    I've hit my limit on Tapatalk for uploads this month and I'm too stupid to figure out Imgur. So, I'll post some more in March, LOL.

    Nooooooooooo darn and blast. Imgur is super easy Mike, try it. Free and just copy the BBC code. I have the phone app, but i cant suss how to get the pic without it being a link. So i take pic, upload via app. Then just use the mac to post pics.


    The BBC code is the one to copy, paste here and happy days.

    Thanks, i will tell Callum, he saw my amazon watch box and wanted one! So thats 2 boxes in a few days. Trouble is now..........he wants his filling fast!

    Finally figured out why imgur wasn't cooperating with me.... I hadn't verified my email address with them. THANK YOU VEN! Guess they figured I was some kind of stalker!

    Anyway, here is my Citizen pilot watch. Essentially a Japanese interpretation of a German classic. I preferred it due to the raised, 3D watch dial. Plus it has Eco-drive, which is my favorite movement.. set it and forget it!

    And while I'm on a roll and before I forget how to use imgur..... here is my newest German chronograph. I love the vintage look.
    One of the dials is a Telemeter. Start the stopwatch when you see lightning, then stop it when you hear the thunder and the dial reads the distance in kilometers to the strike.

    When I was a kid, my first watch was a Timex. So, when it came time to add a field watch I went with Timex. I forgot how much I like the Indiglo. Now I wish all my watches had it!.

    The first two are very cool. However, I'm diggin the Timex the most!

    Nice one mike, yay .
    Like them all a lot, do you feel the pain of having to decide which to wear? Itís usually the first thought of the day, half asleep, having to decide what to wear. Itís a hard life! I think I will get a pilot/tool watch next, similar to the timex design .

    How cool is telemeter function, love it!
