I'm sort of at the other end of the spectrum today. I wore my new Armitron Griffy.

I dug out one of my microbrands that I purchased last April before the whole "Tiffany Blue" hype - thought it would be fun to wear this inexpensive but cool diver by Aquatico called the Dolphin.

Tell us more about this watch! I love that dial. Where did you pick that up??

The Dolphin is currently priced at $299 but they are having a V-Day sale with 20% off which makes it exactly the same price I paid a year ago - $239. Sweet deal for a nice watch.
