  1. I just bought another Casio. I had a Rangeman several months ago but I had to get shot of it. I never trusted the compass or the altimeter functions and it annoyed me that I had feature that I wanted but couldn't use. The thing I missed about it was the atomic time keeping, easy to set my other watches to it. When I went I had to start using my phone, which just seemed another hassle. I was looking for a substitute yesterday and found the GW-7900. Multiband 6, tide and moon features, wears nice and not too bad in the looks department. I am glad to have this in the stable now, and the tide/moon is a nice little gimmick for me to play with. Oh, it was only £83 delivered same day from Argos!

    Little shot with the 51.

    Got it on a Croc style strap, rubbish picture for now.

    Hello Vinn, that is how they were built, I really love the look. I just took my SBDC051 for a test drive and I love that one as well! Dome isn't quite as drastic though.. The overhead view of the SARB

    I tried to capture the beauty of this watch but my photography isn't great. Here it is with an Orient cousin for comparison. When my internet connection starts working properly I will add an overhead shot.
  6. After a long and tortuous wait I finally got my hands, albeit after an expensive purchase, on a SARB029. I fell in love with these from the moment I saw the photos of them on black Croc straps. I don't know for sure when they were discontinued, but since I became watch obsessive a couple of years ago, this was on my want list. One appeared recently and I was either quick enough or stupid enough to pay the asking price for it and I got it yesterday. It is everything I was expecting and more. I love the domed crystal, the 36mm size, dial, markers, I don't know what else, the overall aura really. Anyway, this is the one that made my collection complete. Croc strap inbound!
  7. Friday 27th Oct watch parade

    I have gone for the modern vintage look today, although I have had a couple of others on before this one.
  8. Thanks Paul, I had the Samurai but I admit I never jelled with it. First impression out of the box was "WOW" the dial is amazing, then the love died out for some reason. If the style suits you it is a great watch, it just turned out to not be my cup of tea in the end. Keep your eye out around the forums, they do appear now and again. If I see one I will let you know.
  9. Well, I have spent a lot of time recently on my Seiko habit - not sure how long these will be part of the collection but here they are; my Citizens are all safely in their beds!
  10. Watch Parade 16.09.17

    Photo taken this morning before we set off for the Isle of Wight. It is my little secret, I never usually admit to owning it! Quartz, narrow case, easy to read dial- as long as I don't need to see the date - comfortable and I can also wear it to the office without any shirt sleeve snagging.
  11. Fridays Watch Thread

    My holiday trio. Shogun for the beach, Moonwatch for the bar, B-42 to find my way to the bathroom!
  12. Well, it had to be this one today really..
  13. I had 2 actually! The first was a bracelet version but I could never get it to fit properly, I was in between link sizes. The 2nd had a chrono hand that didn't line up properly so that one had to go. This one is just the ticket. I am now trying to make myself move a few of my collection on to good homes - I just can't bring myself to did it though, I really like every watch I have at the moment. In reality I will buy a bigger watch box!
  14. I have been after another Bulova moonwatch, and was waiting patiently for pay day to scroll around again. Well it did eventually, and thanks to Robden who came up trumps with this little (maybe not so little actually!) beauty, I have one again. I had forgotten how much I liked them actually. Everything on this one lines up nicely, lovely sweep of the chrono hand, comfortable, firm but smooth button action, gorgeous case design and that lovely multi-dimension dial. Oh, I was going to swap the strap out as well but, since my Tropic experience, I have taken to the vintage style and the strap will stay. Crumbs, I forgot to mention the subtle shade of blue lume as well, fantastic watch! I seem to have cycled back toward quarts at the moment, although I do wear my Shogun much, much more now I have it on a Tropic rather than the now beat up bracelet. Here they are, and thanks for bearing with me Rob..
  15. Watch display boxes

    Quite at bit more at £90 and possibly not what you are looking for, but I recently ordered one of these: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B004EYSKOQ/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Nice quality and really shows off your watch collection. I justified the price against the cost of one Isofrane watch strap! Here is mine anyway:
