    Red face Itch = scratched. New arrivals.

    Every time I see one of these on the forums, I like it more. No idea why I don't have one, or at least didn't, but now I do:

    I really liked the Orange Monster, but my wife wouldn't let me get one. That's why I got the orange bezeled Orient Mako XL. Great watch!

    The pessimist says it can't get any worse while the optimist says it can.

    On steel (try to ignore all the arm scratches. The collateral damage after my annual battle with the blackberry bushes in our back 40):

    On rubber:

    On nylon (my fave):

    Thanks to Daniel at Citizen Time and Gold for the good deal as always (and to Mrs Daniel for the nice Xmas bag!)
    So after this, I took my vintage Seamaster in to one of my other watchmakers (Tung Nguyen) for servicing. And spied this lovely Orient World Time:

    Which I suddenly had to have. Thanks, Tung! It will come home next week, after he give it a service; it's NOS but been sitting around for a long time.

    So there's my day off. Scratched the itch nicely, all for less than $500.
