    I have these, but wear this.

    I've got two dive watches:

    But wear this when I'm in the water:

    That either makes me a desk diver or an aviation snorkeler.

    Aviation snorkler is a new one on me. Shakespeare invented a crapton of words, so why can't you.

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

    Or, just a plain ol' Sinner.... . Always wanted a 656. And a 956. And.....
    Regards, T Bone

    Even a broken watch shows correct time once or twice a day. I ought to know, I have a few!

    I find I'm often compared to Shakespeare, but mostly because of how I dress.

    It's a universal truth that black sport watches look great on green NATOs:

    I'm not as sure about watches such as the Speedmaster - I posted in part because I want orange scales from my Benchmade

    You literally don't know the half of it! Take your pick:

    1) He who dares wins
    2) Live to fight another day
    3) Man in the arena
    4) I'm a right brain, color blind, spendthrift who is unable to reconcile those failings.

    Form over function prevailed and I undid that setup. Still think I'm right about its effectiveness though.
