That will look real nice with a beads of rice bracelet!

Check out Strapcode.com, see if they have anything that you'd like for a bracelet.

Get it serviced and a new crystal.

You can get a new crystal installed really easy in that.

Scooped up another Bronzer. This one is pretty big but I like it. Zoretto did a good job capturing the nautical feel though I probably would have milled slightly thinner lugs. 24mm is kinda huge on my smaller wrist.

Very cool watch. Overall I love it. Miyota 9015 movement & display case back on a pretty solidly built watch. The Zoretto Indy has just become one of my daily watches.

All these bronze and brass pieces call out to be matched with one of these although the 200m limit on most of these watches may be an issue. Big Grin

I love em man. I bought a brass watch brand new a few weeks ago and it already has a pretty cool patina forming. Bronze has a totally different appearance from brass but I love em both. They have WAAAY more character than stainless steel.

The new Rado came in yesterday.

Its dimensions are nearly identical to my Omega Aqua Terra and has similar styling. I really like many of the watch makers are using retro features now, like sword hands and sunburst dials.

I like this trend here towards white faced minimalist dials. Smile



Picked up a black with middle orange stripe NATO strap for my SKX011J. Reflected in the updated "group" picture on page 204 October 29, 2019 02:13 PM post. Big Grin It also can be viewed here: https://imgur.com/NTwbnA0

I've worn it for most of the last 8 days, and it is running at +3.75 seconds per day for that interval. That includes taking it off at night, and I didn't wear it yesterday, so it is getting a variety of conditions.

That is within COSC (Swiss chronometer certifying group) for chronometers for the average daily rate, although that is only one of seven accuracy criteria. I haven't the interest to track the other criteria, but I am pleased with the watch. It isn't COSC certified.

Played around with a few 24mm straps I have and ended up replacing the nice Sirtoli black alligator one I had been using with the dark blue alligator strap that Glycine shipped with my blue dial Airman 46.

Holy crap r0gue! That F.P.Journe Chronometre Souverain is beautiful but w-a-y beyond my financial constraints. You could buy a car for what they run. Yowser!

Half the guys I work with have fancy pickups worth three or more times this. Cars are a waste of money. My car is six years old. My wife's is 9. Priorities man! Smile

Oh I don't disagree. 2011 Hyundai Sonata, 2003 Honda S2000, 2003 Toyota 4Runner, and a 1999 Subaru Forester comprise the family's vehicles.

My other recent pickup. Timex Q 1970's reissue. A really nice vintage re-edition. A killer value watch. A ton of nostalgic fun for the money. Ours is an odd an unpredictable hobby (obsession?). Confused Smile

Nice score rOgue! That’s a great looking watch. While they are hardly fancy I had a Timex for well over a decade and it was a great watch. I lost it surfing amazing waves at VA Beach right before hurricane Isabel battered the hell out of us and gave me a 2 week vacation from college. Cool

In the days of wonderful “smart” targeted advertising I will admit I have seen ads for that watch more than a few times and I have been quite tempted to scoop one up. I mostly gravitate towards autos and that alone has kept me from getting one....thus far. It’s a great watch and amazing deal for the money.
