I just ordered an Uncle Seiko GL831 for my three Turtles. They'll have to share it. lol
It was that darn Strapweek sale that did me in.
Casio/ Citizen/ G-Shock/ Pro Trek/ Seiko
I'm considering 'investing' in an Indicator, from Colibrica Design. It's killing me. It's out of affordable territory, has to come from Russia, I've only seen pictures and there's no way I can go to Russia just to try one on...
So it's not Incoming yet, but may be in the foreseeable future. One only gets to reach the age of 65 once in a lifetime, right?
(Picture not by me, obviously)
Nanophylia: getting all excited over tiny things.
Finally after almost 3 weeks in transit, not the sellers fault but the USPS station in Pittsburgh.
This was well worth the wait. Smith & Bradleyís DRAPER model. These folks were using a microbrand model before microbrands became a thing. S&B finance their watches themselves which made the MSRP ridiculous. However well worth the sub $200 that I paid for on eBay. I love this Milanese mesh strap. I usually hate mesh strap but this is a solid strap with no weird bars to remove for adjustment. The bracelet is one full piece and the bracelet adjusts by sliding the clasp. Itís 42mm but itís all dual so it works well. Itís dial is sandwiched and runs on an elaborated. ETA-2824-2. It does have lumed hands and hour marks. It has a display back case. Iím fine with that because itís not a diver.
I like it so much that I may buy the green dialed version as I had planned on putting this on a nice brown strap. The price is good and the watch specs outweigh the price. It can be worn every day too.

Sometimes only a vintage watch can scratch the itch for something "new" in the collection. Picked up a few harmless hand-winders/autos for under $100 apiece. Still looking for a Seiko Marvel or Sportsmatic with an orange dial for under $500.
