Comment with your Timex piece 😊 This is my 19 year old Timex 'Monaco' homage that I bought with my first paycheck in 2003.

When I saw the dial and the design of thr hands and case, I was like yeah, like a normal microbrand would do, but as soon as Max turned it over to the display caseback, that's were the wow factor was for me. Love what farer did to customize the sellita movement. Hope they get to having in-house movements one day.
My 11 year old Mako XL is still part of my rotation. I still love it, the overall design is unique, not like the usual design homages from a submariner and very different to a mako. Love its beefy lugs and finishing though basic adds a nice touch.
chrislangcommented onHow do you wear your NATO straps?·
I wear folds at back or down under method for watches that are 43+ big or lug to lug that results in some wrist overhang, while rests that are smaller are with the standard method. Having those keepers on the side adds some girth to 37-39mm sport watches.
chrislangcommented onAre there Seiko Alternatives for Beginner Enthusiasts?·
Orient is the new Seiko.
And yes Addiesdive, Steeldive, San Martin, Baltany are filling in Seiko's shoes now that they have gone way up in pricing. So what if they started or still at homage watch territory but damn such value in these timepieces. I mean a 6105 homage from Steeldive with NH35 going at less than 100$? 🤯
chrislangcommented onDo you ever find yourself just aimlessly-admiring your watch? What is this sickness?·
it's the only sickness that I am proud to have haha It is even more pleasurable when you get so mesmerized by the beauty and design knowing the good deal that you got it for... (name drop seikos and orients!) 😉
