Straps, Straps, Straps…#7 The End?

Exhibit G: A bit different. Catches the lume. I believe we have a winner! What say you, @DanTheo82 ? 😉

Straps, Straps, Straps…#6

Colorado bourbon with my Glycine Combat Sub. Ahhhh…

I have a Hull Chrono. A friend has a Cahill he likes.

My first had a bum second hand. After I sent it off for a repair that failed, I eventually got a replacement and refund for the non-repair. They did the right thing, but took some prodding (including posting about it on WC where a rep saw my predicament.)

Exhibit D: Asymmetric black/grey, rally stripe. Suitable. Fine. But I think we can do better.

Casioak G-Shock: Bluetooth or No?

Though size is still likely a deal-breaker (165 mm wrist), I’m tempted by Casioaks. Is Bluetooth a useful enhancement or unnecessary gimmick? (FWIW-tr...

Exhibit C: Bond. Classic at this point. Looks fine. Just as it does on every other diver out there. Not bad but I’ll keep looking.

The Bad Batch

In my horological adventures, I’ve been lucky so far. Resurrected two mid-century manuals, which cost a total of $16.50. (Not counting tools purchased...

Exhibit B: Looking for a bit of pop, but not sure the orange is really the thing. Unless I’m wearing corporate colors, in which case, it’s perfect.
