I can't get by without a date, either.

Keep in mind that my Deep Blue was an early iteration of the model so the line may have been upgraded in the lume department in recent releases.

I can't even see the date complications on most watches anymore...

www.nfwonline.com is offering Socnet 20% off, code is NFW20. I've owned an NFW, and have to say they're hugely under-rated, and you should support them because:

1) They support veterans, with $50 PER WATCH going to www.honorflight.com from their Valor Series, as well as various other veteran orgs, and they have multiple other watches with a specialized purpose and theme (Chris Kyle, Green Beret, Lone Survivor, etc).

https://nfwonline.com/collections/valor

2) They're superbly made watches and a great value. I've owned a Shumate, and it punches WAY above its weight: sapphire front AND rear, lumed ceramic bezel, excellent auto movement, crazy allen-screwed bracelet that could hold a man's weight or tow a friggin truck, and they come with a. full. kit. The Shumates come with bracelet, NICE leather strap, two SETS of strap tools, nice case, etc. They're sold out, but should be back soon, and there are plenty other watches on his site, including women's.

3) NFW (Nice Fucking Watch, if you're wondering) is owned by George Fox. Like myself with my coffee business, if you message NFW on FB, George is responding. If you have a problem, George will fix it. George is a good guy. Be like George.
