It's a fun read, I thought.

Hi. I'm glad you liked it. The review at that link was mine. It's a pretty nice watch, and I've been happy so far. Still working out the power reserve, and accuracy. Runs a few seconds fast per day. Not unexpected. It's not a high-grade movement, but overall I'm pretty pleased.

Hi. Thanks for posting my my review of this Timex Marlin reissue, mechanical. I've enjoyed wearing the watch so far. Some people have said they wish it was larger. I understand that. But for me, it works fine.

Mine is +10 secs/day and the power reserve is at least 36 hours. {probably longer but that's the last point I checked)

You're welcome. I'm glad you like it. I sometimes don't know when to stop when I start these projects, and get a little bit obsessed, sometimes.

I have read your excellent reviews before, also visited your site several times and enjoy your attention to detail.
A lovely watch that hides it's light under a bushel. A clear case back would be a great plus, but probably difficult to achieve with a press back.
I must get me one of these. Again thanks for your review.

Hi Bobee, I'm glad you've like the reviews and the pages. A display back would have been fun, but yeah difficult and prob cost more.
