Watches for the Week; bring on the new

This week I'm just looking for a way to enjoy my new acquisitions now that I've slowly gotten them past my wife. The purpose of these weeklies, for me,  was to find new ways to enjoy my older watches and stave off buying new ones. Epic fail over the last month. Also, with all of the recent attention on Formex for the updated Reef diver and the new Reef GMT, I thought it was time to pull out the 39mm Essence. From left to right

  1.  The new Worn & Wound/BOLDR Supply Co. APDT Series 1 Petrol with two ADPT single pass straps. This is my first titanium and it is slowly but surely getting outdoor time. The lume is sick too.
  2. The new Long Island Watch  ISL-146 Manhasset. As I've mentioned in other posts this gives me ref14000 AirKing vibes. I can tell though that the color on the hands is too close to the dial making them a little difficult to set without my glasses.
  3. Last is the Formex Essence 39mm on the blue suede strap. Next to it is the Formex bracelet with the quick release system. I'll play with that strap combo this week.

Been wearing the ADPT for the past two days. It might be hard for me to go back to stainless steel watches.

Despite being 13.5 mm thick, I forget I'm wearing it because it's so light (for a mechanical watch), until I see the lovely blue dial.

Excellent choice sir👌 that ISL dial is killer!!

I opened my Certina up and did paint spots on the hand tips to see them better. It was the cheapest 2824 movement I could get at the time. I like it a better now.

That's kind of genius. I need to investigate that more.

This is exactly my experience. Let's do a collab review?
