Hey Watch Nerds That Shower With One On...

I think we all agree that, at the very least, showering with a watch on makes water intrusion issues more likely, whether by temperature shock, soap o...

I keep getting this feeling that what I want to try is a strap that's made of some durable, washable fabric that can be single passed like a NATO but...

commented on Mini Duro versus Everyone. What's that common saying on here, 'wear what you like.' Let's see how that holds up? ยท

I think it only rubs people the wrong way because a lot of people have wanted a smaller duro for ages, and Casio definitely could've made just that. Instead they changed some things for seemingly little to no reason, which felt like a completely wasted opportunity to many. I don't know of a bad Casio, so the mini duro mostly dissapoints in comparison to the duro, which is a pretty absurd value proposition. If the duro never existed, no one would "hate on" the mini. It's fine, and if you don't care about the things people generally consider its negatives, then it's a great option for the price.

commented on The horrors of magnetism ๐Ÿงฒโšก๏ธโ€ฆ do you care? ยท

It's so easy to fix that I'm entirely content never paying any mind to it up until the time when it actually happens to me, at which point, I'll reevaluate whether it's worth worrying about.

commented on I'm not ready yet to lead a raid into Mordor but this should help. ยท

My arctic GSAR has been holding for almost a year now as my default daily wear. It doesn't try even for a second to be anything but utilitarian, and I enjoy that. There are more expensive watches that I could see myself owning one day, but I think I'd find myself often missing the tritium, insanely easy to use bezel and crown, and almost complete absence of stylistic flare, as if it doesn't even comprehend why style would ever be a concern.

commented on What is the maximum number of watches from the same brand do you have in your collection ? ยท

I feel like casios/gshocks should not count, lol. How do you stop at just one of those?

Dear god

commented on Bracelets should be like jeans - offered in skinny and straight leg versions. ยท

I am too, but I just can't get it to work for me. If I'm working with my hands, my wrist will swell enough that a properly fitting bracelet cold will be too tight, and if I wear it loose to compensate for swelling, it slides down to my hand and gets stuck when my wrist bends back, which can get really painful if you're working on stuff. I'm pretty much a strap only person at this point.

commented on Two-tone: hot or not? ยท

Doesn't work for me, but my opinion doesn't mean jack.
