    Please note that the toughest and most important test for any watch is a three foot drop to a tile bathroom floor (landing on its face). This is the drop any watch can take from the bathroom sink to the floor and subjects it to extreme G force due to the unyielding nature of hard tile. I have lost two analog watches this way.

    One of my first tests in this thread was a 3 or 4 foot drop onto concrete while frozen in ice. Ice likely cushioned the blow however.

    As an update to this thread I am selling my newer BFK because it is the beat up test dummie version that always finds my wrists on weekends. Also I have a minty MM300 incoming to fill the void.

    Heard about the BFK torture test in another thread and I'm glad I decided to search for it. Perhaps I should not sell my BFK... :)

    True, aussie jewellers are ripping us off. Angus and coote has 50% off, still it's $399. So i bought mine on the bay in the weekend.

    Yep, same deal with the Seiko Solar Chronos.
    Similar RRP here to the BFK.
    I had the same story from Angus and Coote about their 50% sale and thought, well i can buy one off the 'bay for $150 less than your 50% off price.
    We get truly shafted here when it comes to retail pricing.
    Angus and Coote et al are only good for getting a hands on look at at a watch before purchasing it on ebay.

    I killed a Citizen Ti Promaster that way... the 2nd time I dropped it. Course, mine were after a night dive onto pavement. But, same idea :)

    BFK (SKA) at Wallace Bishop jewellers in Australia are $600. They typically do up to 30% off, which means a lot of profit to keep their bricks n mortar afloat.
