    That S1000 MT-G is definitely pretty large, but it doesn't feel too large. Maybe I'm just too acclimated to the size of G-Shocks now, haha! I was surprised that the MR-G (at least the G1000) was smaller than the MT-G. For the longest time I thought they were about the same size, until I picked up the MR-G last year. The MR-G is almost the exact dimensions of the older GW-3000 series.

    Nice collection Ty!
    MR-G is slim in comparision.. and those tiny clutch drive screw heads are unique. Guess they want to discourage disassembly.. haha (-;

    My SKX spent the day with me on this fine Tuesday. Months ago I bleached the bezel, attached a Strapcode Super-O bracelet, and slapped a double domed sapphire Crystal in her.

    I learned of this from Adrian on his Bark & Jack YouTube channel. Just pop the bezel off and soak it in some Clorox bleach for a few minutes. It gives it that old worn patina kinda look. I'm fairly certain this won't work on ceramic inserts. The skx inserts are( please someone correct me if I'm wrong) painted aluminum.

    @jrgold Awesome! Make sure to take pics of before and after, love to see it I made the mistake of not doing that. So, When it was soaking in the bleach I used my finger, and about every 20 seconds or so I just ran it around the insert quite a few times to help with the bleaching. Keep an eye on it, when it starts to fade and gets to the point you want it you'll need to get it under the faucet to stop the process good luck!

    Was in my local gun shop this weekend. Through the years I've walked in and passed this pocket watch that has been sitting in the display case for God knows how long. I finally said heck with it and purchased it for a good deal. I started doing some research on it and and learned some really interesting things. I was able to go to the Waltham site and look up the serial#. It was made in 1943, 85,000 were produced in the serial number run I have, and was distributed throughout the Military. Back then the women in watch factories would use radium paint to hand paint the numbers so they would glow. They would put the tip of their brush between their lips to bring the brush to a nice point before and after dipping. little did they know the paint was radioactive due to the radium. so alot of them had very bad long term health effects from this. They are now referred to as the Radium Women/Girls. I'm almost 100% sure this is one of the many many pocket watches painted by them. Even if it's not, I learned a little tidbit about horology along the way. Just figured I'd share. If this needs moved to another forum please feel free to do so. Have a good day everyone!
