    I guess it's a pocket watch for now...

    This one arrived today, but the straps are still in transit...



    They are apparently on the slow boat from China.
    The delivery date is "sometime before 2 July."
    :O[

    You gotta go to the mall or something. Hit Wal-Mart/Target. This thing needs to be on your wrist immediately.

    I hear ya--it's killing me just having it sit beside me as I work.
    On the other hand, the sooner I wear it, the sooner I start damaging doorjambs.

    I think it's the doorjambs that will take the brunt of the damage here. Dude, those hands are sick. Just immediately caught my attention.

    Many thanks, I was around at EOT when this was being designed, but didn't throw in my two cents...sometimes these hands are referred to as Klingon hands.
    It's a big boy--more than 45mm and pretty darn thick. I suppose that's what it takes to be 600m WR.
    I need 22mm straps...I'll possibly have to scavenge from another watch. I do have a shark mesh on the way, which should arrive before the straps...

    It's a beast, Henry--you could use it for dive weights, I bet.

    I found a spare strap...a KAVU that is best for 20mm lugs, but it'll work until the 22mm options arrive:

    I bet I could. I don't need more than a few pounds in fresh water.

    If it was good enough for Sean Connery...
