    My latest wild one: Angular Momentum's Beryllium Diver Magnus

    Sorry I took a while to post this. It took some time to take the right pictures, write this, and of course the details of life ...

    So, to state the obvious here, this watch is wildly creative, even ridiculous, and could be considered more art than wristwatch. Few will like it, even fewer will buy one, and if you call it gross or hallucinogenic, it pokes fun at you. That's the way art is.

    But in spite of its audacious design and substantial physical presence, this is a very competent field watch. It is highly legible in daylight /low light and /no light. Few watches will do that. The bi-directional bezel has a bright pip in the head of the bolt (on the bezel face) that tightens to secure the bezel. The case is at least 200m water resistant. This watch can also be worn on either wrist due to the absence of a fixed "12:00" dial marker. The bezel pip may be set for 12:00 or used as a timer. I hit one doorway in three days.

    The Band: The band on this watch does an extraordinary job anchoring the mass of this timepiece, but was challenging to set up and is difficult to put. But once on, it is nothing short of amazing. It is quite unusual: a thick, gummy, stretchy, gooey, tough, rubber-like material that is difficult to push the two bronze pins through to secure the band. I need a tool to put the watch on, something flat like a metal ruler or perhaps a coin or fingernail file to slip behind the band when I press down on the pins. Wasn't so easy the first few times. Would be quite difficult without a proper tool.

    I wore this for three straight days to get to know it. It was fun. I wore it to the gym, the office, and out to dinner with friends. Nobody knew what to make of it. A woman at work ran to the phone to call a friend. One man screamed.

    At the end of the 60 hours of wearing this watch, I wanted to wear something small and inconspicuous, and had a small anxiety attack when I realized I don't have anything like that. Another excuse to buy something - but it would be quartz.

    Enough chatter.

    First, the obligatory wrist shot. As I said in one of the WRUW threads, here I am on my deck, watching the sunset, drinking a cold one.



    The rest are just for fun.

    Isn't beryllium toxic?

    Even the steampunk club would find that ridiculous.

    Dude, some of us upon viewing that monster are experiencing testicular withdrawal. Is that the same malady?

    Fixed. I also fall into that category. But I will use the inspiration to get way the heck out of my comfort zone more often.

    Is it available with a thicker bezel and a lot of lume?
