    The new affordable I'd ordered came in today. Have been without one for a while.
    Unfortunately it needs dial alignment but that's life. Still, I can't stand having to send a brand new watch back for something so simple that should have been QC'd.

    Started my day with the UG on its new vintage Kreisler deluxe astronaut bracelet.



    And then I swapped to an old piece I once owned years ago, I gave it to my good friend as he liked the watch a lot, later on I gave him the Hirsch Ayrton strap that was gifted to me by a fine member here as a raok. Well to make a short story long he fell in love with another of my watches so I said here you go, trade me a watch from your collection and this is what he gave me, very cool how things turn out sometimes eh :-)

    the bonus thing is now it is abit quieter since it sit closer to the skin! (the factory nylon nato make it sit a tiny bit higher and noisier - seem the noise mostly amplified from the caseback and the skin muffled it by half)

    for a price of a lunch money and less than some shot of drink... the big question .. would you dare to wear one if you have it?

    have a great day everybody!!!
    What so great about these inexpensive Timex watches is the movements are a stoutly built that are basically full case sized and very good quality. In typical Timex style they keep these things to themselves and let their products speak for them.

    That's a great looking combo right there!

    Thanks! These tend to go shiny and smooth with wear, so a quick and gentle session with a Scotch-Brite pad will make yours look original.
