I use it weekly if not more.

commented on What do you think of my Lobinni L16071. I don't like the band I am going to get a bracelet. It's 43mm with a 22mm band width. I do wish it had seconds hands though. ·

It looks like the tri-hand is your seconds hand. The color key above it tells you what Triad of the 60second interval it’s showcasing. For example, the red indicates no additional adding is necessary…read the what the red indicator/tip says. When the green indicator/tip is on the scale, add 20seconds. When the yellow indicator/tip is over the scale, add 40seconds to what is being shown.

Love the data bank 611!! I had one when I was in HS in the late 80s. DBC series is THE best traveling watch…when one is actually traveling. I keep all my important phone numbers there: hotel, insurance hotline, bank phone number, mechanic, tow service, Embassy when traveling abroad, local law enforcement, etc.
