Funny you should post that vid as I’m wearing a fake Rolex Submariner today. I bought it about 20 years ago when I was in Chicago visiting a friend. We had a few beers and a dude was literally selling them out Of a suitcase on the street at like 2:00 am.

I paid something like 50 bucks for it. My dad had the exact same same watch and when I saw him next, I asked if I could see his watch. When I gave it back to him I gave him my fake and he had no idea.

20 years later I still like it! I call it my non-swimming model. Razz. I have a couple real Rolex’s but never bought the black face one because this one works just fine. Only thing is the bezel is scratched up and my real ones don’t scratch as easily.

Thank God I'm not a watch man. That's serious eye candy.

Well...if you're gonna pursue eye candy - this is a less risky alternative.

I am LOVING my silver/“white” dial Proteus! So far it has vastly exceeded my expectations in build quality. The fit and finish, bezel action, and overall quality are all above what you would expect a watch costing twice as much. The bezel is the best I’ve seen on a Phoibos and for the money it’s just stupid smooth & good. I like the style it reminds me a guess of a baby Seiko Samurai but with teeth & a sandy dial. It’s robust, unique and different. I really like it so far!



Versatile. I had spare bracelet so I tried it on the new Phoibos. It’s so comfortable and looks better than I expected.

Nice! I like the black bracelet best. How long does it glow?

The lume lasts all night. I think it has something like 15 coats of lume.

The Seiko movement in mine is VERY good. I’ve worn it for about a day and a half and it’s only +5 seconds from atomic time.

There is a meme on the internet pertaining to how fast Seiko automatic movements run out of the box... Big Grin

How often does Phoibos restock the ones that are out of stock? I would like a Wavemaster with the mother of pearl of face but it’s OOS.

I’m not sure. It’s been a while though since any new Wave Masters have been in stock. The white and green MOP dial Wave Masters show up occasionally on eBay but they are somewhat rare.

Does anybody have experience with Spinnaker Watches? I've been drooling over the Dumas model and like either the -33 or -88 colors.

That white face watch is now sold out, as are many other offerings.

I’m not surprised the white dial version sold out. It’s a neat watch! It isn’t actually white but it looks white from a distance. I have changed the bracelet three times already and I’ve pretty much settled on this Steinhart adjustable mesh. The big end links suit the chunky case and look great together. I love having over 12mm of micro adjustment at my fingertips.

Bring on that warm weather. Wink
