It is my 20th wedding anniversary this week and I thought what better way to commemorate it than with a new watch. Not just any watch but one I could really do some damage with. Something fairly unique and a flagrant appalling display of Stainless Steel! But on a somewhat limited budget. In comes Handsomegq67 with his thread on his Ploprof on an Armida A-1 bracelet. That's what I'm talking about, gratuitous metal!
I bought my Eco-Zilla a couple of years ago at a pawn shop. I wasn't much of a WIS then and didn't realize it was far from perfect and the crown couldn't screw in all the way, but I wore it. I enjoyed it, got a lot of compliments on it, but it wasn't watertight and not what I really wanted.
So what better time than to get a brand new one in perfect shape and place it on this Armida anchor chain and have the Zilla I've always wanted. Well thanks to Bluedial, Armida and one of our members (Drbob) for the very nice as-promised Walt's adapters, I now have my 20th anniversary watch. Please enjoy the pic's as I get ready to take it on vacation!! Imagine the look on the TSA agents face when this goes through check in!!!
The Armida bracelet is just perfect. It is very heavy and the thickness compliments a watch the size of the Zilla perfectly.
I didn't even realize it had a divers clasp till I was putting it on.
The bracelets weight balances the watch head perfectly and it does not move around at all. Watch does not feel top heavy.
Sorry for the hairy arm.
My 20th Anniversary watch!!! I am just thrilled to wear this one. Thanks to all for the inspiration and procurement and to my Wife for putting up with my watch habit and me for 20 years!!!!
