    Thanks! I fell in love with it a few years ago. It's nice and light. Some would consider it big at 45mm. I think it fits my wrist well.

    I can not wear mine in work(safety wise), but i do wear to and from and outside of. When you get time, be cool to see come pics mr burly

    Happy and safe april fools day, about to leave for work soon. Pretty much carrying on where i left off yesterday(for once!) with the rangeman 9400


    James 45mm is spot on, that actually is the rough size of the smaller G shocks , the 5600 to name one. Divers watches i prefer 42/44 over say some 39mm sizes.

    Any thoughts on the Maratac offerings? I like the look, but not sure about the internals. Figured Iíd check with the expert.

    I have one of their GPT-1 dive watches. I think the movement is a Miyota.

    Seems reasonably accurate and durable for an inexpensive mechanical watch, but mine is pretty noisy. Fit & finish is nothing fancy, but ok.

    EDIT ... Found an old photo. That is an aftermarket bracelet, by the way.



    EDIT(2) ... Miyota 9015 automatic/self-winding movement, a 24 jewel movement with 28,800 vibrations per hour

    Thank you very much.

    I think it is an excellent value, for the price, indeed.

    However the dial, in person, is a little "coarse" (for lack of a better term) .... Not so obvious in the photo.

    And the auto-winder sounds audibly "scratchy" , even to my old ears

    The best parts are the crown and the bezel, both chunky and rock-solid.

    Anyway, I'd still buy it again

    Thanks for feedback on the Maratac. I really like the look of their pilot, now discontinued. Sometimes they pop up on the forums.

    Keep an eye on that auction place to, never know!

    Ive spent too much recently to even look at another watch, darn car for one . Then a new tv and iMac to get kids doing school work. Thatís one thing thatís worked! Makes a change , something going to plan.

    The army G still has my attention , also a new rangeman with heart monitor releasing soon(well so far as even Casio head quarters is hit in Japan with covid19).

    Stay safe guys and wear in good health.

    I have more refined watches, but they honestly get the least wear time. I prefer a lower priced tool watch that I donít have to worry will attract the wrong kind of attention. Seiko save the ocean samurai here, with Erikas original gitd strap, custom gitd bezel, and domed sapphire crystal. This is a fun one to charge up with a flashlight

    Thank you kind sir . I have a Casio corner in the bedroom haha. Few torches might reside there to! Not sure if I have 9 or 10, Callum (10yr old) has 4 or 5 (not sure exact ).

    There are lots of choice, light weight, tough, the HDS of watches maybe. Many solar are still on original batteries of 20yrs+. They just work! Various models and pricing, from $50 for the classic square 5600, up to high end G shocks mtg and mrg. These can easily get near $10k or more .

    There is a nice Bruce lee limited edition just out. Unfortunately a bit more than I am happy to tie up in a Casio(and can afford right now). But for something a bit special, will go up in value, worth a luck.

    I don't think I've ever seen a Glycine that I didn't like. Unfortunately, they are beyond my retirement budget.

    Got that particular one ages ago, but Costco had some holiday sales on Glycine at truly "blowout" pricing late last year.

    I'm not thrilled with the new Invicta ownership of Glycine, but I think Costco and the Invicta group have some sort of deal worked out

    From what I understand invicta purchased glycine with the agreement that they wouldnít alter production or design. They are still made in Switzerland in the same factory

    Invicta claims that it's not going to skrew around with Glycine. Let's hope this is the case!

    I had an invicta watch........maybe 3 or 4 yrs(heck maybe longer). I loose track of time, they make some interesting designs, some ridiculously large ones to. i ended up selling it as it just did not do anything for me. Hard to explain, i wore it a couple of times then just sat there. They do seem to offer decent value, maybe its a name thing or hit/miss reputation did not sit well.

    I do tend to see ones i like here and there, but held off pretty easy so far.

    Glycine wise, there are a good few i have interest in, but i need to shift a few first. I dont want to go over 20, i dont want it to get like flashlights and have most just sat there. I can easily think of 5 watches i want off the top of my head. But it feels every one i add, it lessens the value of others. Less wrist time, more sat there time!. I almost sound sensible, i am almost convinced myself here............

    Even for my standards, its too early for a swap, now back at work it seems 1 swap a day is back. When off, it got a little crazy for 3 or 4 times(yes boredom played a part).

    So a Callum pic
