Had this about 3 weeks now. Lume is amazing. Watch feels good and works great!

I worried the aggressive bezel would catch on clothing but I haven't even noticed it.

Not as high speed as the majority of this thread, but I just bought this refurbished pocket watch from Etsy, and it makes me feel a little bit closer to my deceased grandfather, who was a cool dude.

Nice. Pocket watches are ideal.

Here's an interesting little find. A vintage Hamilton Automatic K-457. Produced from 1956-1959. It's going to make a decent little dress watch.

My son is a vintage Hamilton fanatic. He is going to be extremely jealous of that find....

Decent is an understatement. Do have a band in mind?

No ideas other than something in leather. The guy I bought it from had it on a black Zulu band which I immediately removed.

I was thinking leather too.

In the meantime, I would be more than happy to foster that watch as you decide what to do next! :D

Ha! $40 well spent for a Hamilton made when it was still Hamilton.

Four Hamiltons for that watch!$!$!

Foster care is still available! Mars said he would be my second, if it gets to that.

Please enjoy it.

Knew about the black limited edition Seiko models coming to market last year, but thought they would be available later...

Guess I was wrong, it was hard as hell to find this model for close to the original retail and with the few on online and at Chrono24 for example were in the range of 900 - 1200 EUR....

Why I bought this was I was a bit mad about needing to pay that much for not buying sooner..

After a bit of digging around did get this for a good price

You guys do know you're wearing your watch on the wrong side of your wrist, right?

Wearing a watch under your wrist is silly and beats the shit out of it.

I love "Turtles" -- that model in particular. Very nice watch!

Oddly, since I don't work at a desk much, keeping the crystal facing in keeps random impacts and bezel snag (pockets, tool belt, ammo pouch) significantly reduced for me.
And when I'm wielding a stethoscope or palpating for pulse deficits, palm up is a natural position to mark time. Pronation would often break contact.

This place is making me poorer...

Been watching Submariners and Seamasters and the following went on sale.

Had to snag it.
