    It's Great To Have It Back....

    The best beater I've ever had. Sapphire, Solar, Atomic,
    Great Lume, 2-Hour Chronograph w/Split. 200M Water Resistant.


    All-in All (for me) PERFECT! I never should have sold it the first time.

    The go-anywhere, do-anything watch!


    :)

    Over the years, my 'beaters' have been among my very favorite watches. They
    have stories to tell that the other watches never get close to. It's not about the
    price of the watch. To me, it's more about their character.

    For 6 years an AP Offshore Titanium Perpetual Chronograph was my 'beater.' It logged
    over 40k miles on western motorcycle tours, rafted the snake and salmon rivers, and
    hiked up Beartooth Pass and Mount Washington.

    When it finally needed servicing, I sent it to the AP Service Center in NYC. This was
    before they moved to Florida. I sent it by UPS. It made it to the UPS Distribution facility
    in Long Island City, NY, and then disappeared—disappeared out of a secure lock-up
    inside the most secure part of their building...Hmmmm.

    Anyway, thank God I had it insured.

    I think about that watch quite often and have NEVER used UPS for anything
    again.

    I should have driven (or trained) it the 90 miles to NYC—so lesson learned!

    ^ I wouldn't hold a grudge against UPS for one package. Their reliability record is excellent. You just got very unlucky... but at least your package was insured. I've found USPS Priority Mail is very reliable. They seem to take "priority" class very seriously.

    Beautiful watch. I have been drooling after one of these... but I'm trying to use the culling of my collection as incentive. Must sell off a bunch of watches as I'm entering a mandatory downsizing phase. I wish I didn't have to do this, but... that's life. If I do OK on sales, it'll fund my dream G-Shock.
