    While it would be nice to get something, itís best that things get contained.

    Going to try this as an alternative to my Apple Watch for running. Only things that I use on the Apple that it canít do is send text,and make or receive calls. Apple still better over all if I want to keep my phone in a safe place while I work. This will not have the battery time issues of the Apple.

    The new G-Shock GBD-H1000-1A7 connected runner watch with GPS and Tough Solar. Quite a lot for under$400. Also available in all black. The white matches the scheme on my Apple Watch.

    Feeling the same way about my Zodiac White Wolf. I figure when things are back to normal I'll hear about it's status.

    Hope you are all keeping safe my friends , just picked this 80,s Tag 2000 , real vintage looks with the two tone , I got it really cheaply because the seller thought maybe it wouldn't reach any where near normal pricing because of the discolouration on the dial , actually the dial is that speckled finish so on the wrist it's kinda not obvious and the darkening of the hands to almost black simply make it very legible , the case , bracelet , glass are pristine , keeps great time , seconds hit the markers perfectly , really pleased , I have a lovely leather on a tag clasp but kinds like it on the bracelet for now this will take me to three Tags and a Heur ! Must confess they are very nice watches at really nice outlay , ithink from my experience speckled dial s tend to have a problem with discolouring for some reason , but I will live with it , it's almost it's own vintage character

    I’ve been back and forth on this one over the weekend. My try of the Padi Turtle was not successful. I hated it for the mixed match finish between the bracelet and the case, and the standard Seiko strap did not center on my wrist while the long end hung up over the bezel. I found this new King Turtle at 51% of retail BNIB, and ordered 3 other aftermarket straps for it if this one is as ridiculously long as the Padi one. The King Turtle has a Sapphire crystal with cyclops from Seiko, new bezel with ceramic insert, waffle dial and a different second hand. One of my watch text chat buddies has been singing the praises of this one for two weeks. Never have I wanted a watch to fit me as much as the Turtle. It’s my second most favorite vintage Seiko watch case only bested by mySLA033. Let's hope this lives up to the hype. Shouldn't turtles be green or brown anyway?

    I liked my Citizen Eco Drive Stiletto so much I bought one for my wife too. It's a little big on her, but still looks good. She's not a WIS, but has discovered she really likes simple Vacheron dress watches. I agree.


    Plastic on dial hasn't been removed yet.

    King turtle arrived today. It is exactly what I hoped the Padi would be. Nice finish on the SS pieces, sapphire crystal is very nice, ceramic bezel insert with a reshaped metal piece has a near diamond sparkle on the bevels, and the dial looks fantastic. That this strap is perfect in size and softness, and the hardware on it is equal to my SLA033 (which is a $4300 watch) makes me think the one that came with the Padi was the wrong strap. This is still an awesome deal at full retail, so I'm very happy getting their last one at a great discount. Now I have the turtle case in the appropriate color (for a turtle) in my collection. This will be my WRUW watch tomorrow.






    Cheers,
