Thread: Infantry FS-1 or what you get for 28 ($42) delivered.

    Infantry FS-1 or what you get for 28 ($42) delivered.

    The other evening I bought a watch while doing some late night surfing (drinking). Fortunately, it was only 28 ($42) so no harm done.
    The price included delivery so I expected a long wait but was surprised when it arrived 5 days later, Hong Kong to UK!

    So what did I get?

    The package.

    The declaration.

    The box and sleeve inside.

    Opening the box I was surprised to see a rubber strap.

    Then I lifted the tray out.

    That's what I expected.

    It came with a springbar tool to swap the straps.

    they are not to bad a brand I had a sub from them can't remember what the price was I was more then happy with it as a daily wear my dad took a liking to it and now has it I have had to change the battery but it is still as good as when I was given it .. so as a reasonable price every day quartz watch you can't go far wrong
    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    Finally, the case is smooth with no sharp edges but appears to be painted so will probably look a mess after any heavy knocks.
    It is heavy on the wrist, weighing in at 143g but doesn't look too out of place even on my tiny 6.5 inch wrist.

    The functions include dual time, stopwatch and alarm.

    Overall for the price, not bad value.

    Looks good. For that price I'm tempted.

    Usually, late night drinking and shopping normally goes the way of the pear, but I think you did good here!

    I must confess that I intended to say something like "two Cobras and a cheeky Indian", but the pictures have really taken me aback.

    Looks like a great little piece! Good find! May it serve you well. Who did you say you got it from?

    Also, what is the WR on it?
