Let’s see those Aurora lume shots!

I don’t have the best view of the northern sky up here on the mountain but we still got a pretty good show. Couldn’t help but snap a few lume shots.

First time seeing one in “the green”

I was pleasantly surprised. A nice TI case and beautiful green dial. The bracelet was comfortable. Just an all around nice fun watch.

Well, I agree with you in theory. The reality is no watch is 100% Gada. My bathing suit got bleached by that pool as well as my hair. It was a freak thing.

I’ve purchased several parts from Crystal Times and received everything promptly and as described. I’ve also never been sent that message. Was your tracking number actually “recycled”?

3!?! It must be difficult to cross your legs. 😂

Has anyone heard the joke about the Englishman attending his very first Baseball game?

The first batter hits a double and runs to second. The second batter strikes out. The third batter is walked. The Englishman is now very confused about the rules and turns to the person sitting next to him and asks, “I understand that the first batter hit the ball and the second batter missed, but why did the third batter walk to first base? The person responded, “Well, the third batter had four balls.” the Englishman stopped and thought for a second and then responded “I imagine that would make it very difficult to run, wouldn’t it?”

I’ll show myself out.

I know what caused mine to flake. I was in a pool that was over 95F with too much chlorine in it for several hours at a time over a week. I did my best to rinse myself and the watch off after each pool session but now I know that no lume would stand up to those conditions.

No problems at all and I am hard on this watch.
