My cousin’s G-Shock

For context, my cousin died suddenly in 2005 when he was 27. As I was at his mom’s (my aunt’s) house after work today helping her with a couple of thi...

My holiday weekend

Just about to head out the door for a 2-day backpacking/camping trip and decided this was the watch to take. What’s everyone else doing this weekend?

OlDirtyBezel commented on Do we read any more? ·

This is just my personal taste, but I’ve never found a watch blog (or podcast, for that matter) that can hold my interest. I read a lot, so it’s not the text part that bores me. It’s that I have a hard time caring without seeing a watch in a dynamic setting.

I’d probably read a blog before I listen to another watch podcast, though. Listening to a watch podcast is like watching someone play jazz with the volume turned all the way down. It makes no sense to me.

Camping and hiking gear****

*Mostly poetry.

**They’re called “records,” not “vinyls.” Stop calling records vinyls; I beg you.

***I’ve had a few.

****Ask me how many Osprey packs I have. The answer is four. I have four Osprey packs. Why the hell do I need four Osprey packs?

OlDirtyBezel commented on Any brands you don’t get? ·

Skmei. I just don’t get why someone makes, and people buy, homages of watches that are already inexpensive by just about any metric.

I just want to see a Union Jack-inspired field watch called The Trooper.

Up the irons! 🤘

How the hell did you make this post and leave out the most appropriate, nay the most necessary, pop culture reference possible?


I’m not mad; I’m just disappointed.

Seiko SRPG35

I love how rugged this watch looks and feels on a tropic strap as opposed to the stock NATO.

The Lurking Fear

Do you primarily lurk, or do you post/comment? I keep seeing polls with hundreds of votes, and I think “there’s no way that many people are posting here regularly.” Maybe there are (my math skills are...
