Pole: Wot Shud i Bye??

I need want a new watch. I've narrowed it down to these two:

PADI Mini Turtle:

And, the Orange Samurai:

Orange, because I have one.;-)


Seriously, it is a beautiful watch and I didn't attempt to fuck with the pins and collars. I bought an Uncle Seiko rubber strap for it and it looks like it should if Seiko was smart enough to dump the pins and collars on their divers.

PADI Turtle IMO.

I am not taken by the "new" Sammi's - too much of a monster sammi mash up for my taste.

Also - what I see in the PADI is by throwing a nice SS bracelet on it you can dress it up and wear it anywhere, anytime - even on the strap it comes on.

The orange certainly has a "sportier/casual" look.

I have an original orange monster as well as a black monster, the black monster gets worn 2-3x as much as the orange.

Anything but orange! Worst color ever for a watch and I don’t care who makes it.

As much as I would do anything to piss the commie from down under off.... the mini (ok really maxi by most standards) is the more better looking watch if you must have a Say-ko.

Being as I live in the PacNW, and everybody here is a lumberjack (or revolting fucking hipster, more likely), I have literally no need at all for a dress watch. Dress watches are boring to me; naturally, this is not meant as a knock against anybody who like dress watches, but to each his own.

Possibly, Mr. O, and thank you for your learned opinion. However, broads really go for an orange wartche. Why this is, I have no idea. They also go for a crack-addicted drug dealer over Stephen Hawking, so go figure.

A good idea, Allison; and normally it wouldn't even be a big deal--at least a big enough deal for me to debase myself by posting a poll about it.

There is no bigger Orient fanboi than me--apart from maybe ANZAC Tony over at BDWF, who got me smoking the Orient crack to begin with. But Tony's gone walkabout. I was the first guy in the Western Hemisphere to review the original OS GMT Starseeker. Normally, the Orient cigarette logo is enough to give me a +four hour boner, where I should consult with a medical professional. I bought two (!) Orient saturation divers, trying to convince myself that, even with the world class design and superb, Swiss-vault-like machining, they were actually wearable. The new Orient mini sat should tick all the boxes, but for some reason, it doesn't. It looks too much like an SKX007, apart from the fact that it's no doubt well made. Compare this to the Orient Revolver, which was the only mid-priced diver that Orient ever got perfectly right, and it looks like, well, that it was made by a committee. It looks a bit too generic. The Revolver was fucking nutz--it was put together by a top designer after a weekend-long sake binge. The mini sat looks too safe. The original sat diver is like the Citizen Ecozilla, only put together by an artist. No doubt it works wonderfully as a real dive watch, but it's so fucking thick that wearing it is like trying to drive a Peterbilt through a small Tuscan village--yeah, you can do it, but you lose a lot of weight through your ass trying.

I hope this explains things.

Things I have learned from this thread:

1. Im a dick.
2. Girls like orange watches.
3. Im a dick.

Go for the orange. We already know you are a dick so no harm no foul.

Whats the difference between a orange?
