    I've gone a bit bonkers with my picture this week... in celebration of the arrival of a watch I ordered in March.

    Worth the wait? Oh yes, I think so...


    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Felt like starting with this again today. It's been getting a lot of wrist time.

    It's Bill Yao's hommage to the Benrus Type II that was issued to American servicemen in the late 1970s. Essentially the same watch was later issued to British troops. As you may know, the MkII website (accessible through the MkII forum on WUS) allows you to mix-and-match from various components, and I chose the original case, bezel and hands with a British MoD dial. It seemed to offer the cleanest look and also avoided a sterile dial - which are often too sterile for my liking. I also didn't want a diver's countdown bezel as I'm not keen on dive watches. I don't dive so a dive watch for me would be a bit like wearing a regimental tie of a regiment you didn't belong to (this is a purely personal quirk, I hasten to add - I have no objectuion to other non-divers wearing dive watches). Strictly speaking, the Benrus was a general purpose watch if it had a GMT bezel like mine, and a dive watch if it had the countdown bezel.

    I don't want to fill the thread with non G-Shock pictures, so will PM some to you.
