    Atomic gulfman arrived! Disappointed!

    Parcel Force finally delivered today!

    I bought an Atomic Gulfman from Seiya and to his huge credit posted it to England in 3 days!! Unfortunately it then languished in customs over the weekend and incurred £23 charges!

    Undeterred i paid it and it came today.

    On opening the package I was met with a strange feeling of... disappointment!

    I can't really explain it but I just don't think this watch is for me.

    For the price I think I expected something a bit grander, it's also slightly smaller than expected.

    I also watched the film 'shooter' the other night that shamelessly features the Suunto Vector which I could of got for the same price!

    I think I may post in the trade threads.

    I feel ever so hollow inside now!

    All the best

    Sure looks sharp to me! And it can take a helluva lot more of a beating than ANY Suunto

    Man that sucks Hoochy. Sorry to hear you're disappointed by it. It's sure happened to me before. That's just the problem with not being able to see a watch before buying it.
    Hope you get it traded,
    Bruce

    I know the feeling mate. Too bad I just sold my Suunto Vector or you could've had it.

    Sorry to hear you're disapointed mate...

    Question: Does this one show time in stopwarch and countdown timer?

    Personally, I passed on this model I never digged the atomic solar version of this one... non atomic is tempting thou but I might wait until I see one in person at local retailer...

    I, too, was disappointed. I only had the 9100, not atomic. It's nice looking, but just didn't feel like it had the guts that my others have. Plus I like my 9700 better. It was gone in days. Dump it. Mike

    Sorry about your disappointment hoochy but its still a good looking watch.
    I'd be more p#ss#d off about the Parcelfarce charge (of which I have ranted here before).
    Hope you can sell it soon. I like the Suunto even though it may be more fragile.

    Best regards
