One of my favorite Chronographs from a brand you rarely see mentioned. Gnomon finally has a few variants of Le Jour’s Mark I back in stock but that “sale price” is gone and it’s jumped back up closer to its somewhat obscene MSRP.




Le Jour has a new GMT diver that is interesting. The case shape looks a little like Seiko’s mini turtle.

Neat dial on that GMT.

Speaking of GMT's, Glycine made a "Coffee" GMT Combat Sub for Drop, their first. $629 with a Sellita SW300-1, a display back and an updated clasp. I kinda like it.

For a clean, cheap dress watch on a black or brown croc strap, do you think a Seiko SNKL23 or SNKL75 looks dressier?

I'm with you r0gue, just put a NATO on my SKX, although I can't figure out why it doesn't look like yours, LOL Wink

It looks great Tooky. I love the SKX and the 4:00 crown. They look ultra sharp on a gunmetal Crown & Buckle NATO Supreme.

Tomorrow, I'll be "roughing it" in hunting camp and hope to score on a javelina for the first time. I'll be wearing this Victorinox Diver in titanium with an "Exotic Grey" leather strap by "The Strap Smith" for the occasion.

I’ll check out the gunmetal strap r0gue. The one on the SKX is just an extra one that came with one of my Helm watches. I do like C&B NATOs, I’ve currently got one of the Supremes on my Tudor.

I very nearly bought that very watch yesterday! My AD had one for me at a good price. I had planned to put it on a NATO for summer. Then I decided to test my Coke on a NATO, and thus I saved myself the hassle of the WIS-cycle of buy-own-sell. One less for the log book.

That BB58 is a STRONG draw to me. I would have that on a cypress C&B NATO (same one that I have on my Coke). I could totally imagine the circumstance where I sell the Coke, get the Tudor and pocket the delta.

Interestingly (to me anyway), this Coke is my longest owned watch. I bought it from our very own Dave Truong in 2008.

Interesting... I typically go back to metal bracelet in the summertime because they breathe more for me. I don't wear it super tight and can wiggle my wrist to get it to move around a bit.



I'm gonna vote for the funniest frog with the loudest croak on the highest log.

God bless America.

As much as I wish it were, mine’s not the BB58, it’s the BB Heritage 41. The BB58 is about 39 mm x 11.9 mm and mine’s 41 mm x 14.8 mm, big difference in size. Different movement also, allowing it to be so much thinner.

Being the BB58 is much newer, and very popular, there’s not many pre-owned available, as yet, and they still command a premium price. I’m keeping my eye out and, if I can find one at a reasonable price, I may eventually be switching. If you decide to go from the Coke to BB58, that would be one sizeable delta you’d be pocketing!

That Seiko is purty

Nice deal on an Orient and Seiko 5 on Drop. I want both but I think my wife would cut me if I bought another watch right now Frown
