**SARCASM AND IRONY INCOMING**
**SORRY, NOT SORRY**
So, I don't do things in half measures, I'm all the way or not at all. Hence this purchase. Cost me $14 after Jeff Bezos' Chain of AD's aka El 'Zon aka Amazon graced me with a coupon. I didn't even have to haggle.
No wait-list either, which frankly was shocking right?
I also bought it wearing my Crocs, Born Primitive Jorts, and no t shirt, so win for me and the AD, and the general populace 😂.
Anyways, thought what better way to support @casiodean and the good natured, albeit salty at times, fun we have here on the crunch than to play the Skamityville Haunted Scavenger Hunt hosted by @casiodean with a Skmei on my wrist.
(PS that sentence might give @Aurelian and all the other professional types an aneurysm, sorry 😔)
So I clicked the button, and two days later I can now say I'm the somewhat non-plussed owner of a Skmei.
Also @casiodean if I'd spent anymore than $14US I might be upset, but since it literally cost me the same as two Black Rifle Lattes and an order of egg bites, I'm not even that mad. Presenting the Planet SkmeOcean?? This is the most God awful strap I've ever worn, or even tried on. The size is about 5mm bigger than listed specs, at least on wrist. Skmei put a protector on the crystal, the case back, the crown, the buckle, and even the BEZEL! Weird. Couldnt get all the protector off the crown, don't care, it'll rub off eventually. The bezel, let's just say yup, it has one. And it turns mostly. Also sticks between 46-37, but I can force it past the sticking....
The crystal underside is smudged, but for $14 I'm more just annoyed than mad.
Also first watch I've ever considered covering with one of those Vietnam era watch covers. Maybe it'll break and I'll have a cool Marlon Brando-esque Rolex GMT Apocalypse Now vibe? Left the caseback sticker on, you know, so it keeps its value when I flip it? 🤏🏻🤐😂 And the second hand hits every single indice, on the nose, all the way around the dial. Every. Single. One. Not too bad. (This has never been one of my hangups btws, could care less if a quartz hits dead center, if I like the watch, I'll wear it.)
Also the dial isnt too shabby, kinda a smoky grey/black.
And red/black colorways look pretty good.
Can't wait to put this bad bear on a WOE x ZuluAlpha that costs 10 X as much as the watch hahahahaha 😁😉🤘🏻🤙🏻👌🏻.
I honestly do not know if there's lume, guess I'll find out. Will update this post when I do. Peace out, and y'all stay frosty!
