Watch You're Wearing SATURDAY, 23 September 2017

Postby Mortuus » September 23rd 2017, 4:27am

Going with my new-to-the-rotation 'modified' Seiko 5 to produce the legendary "55 Fathoms" faux dive watch, a rather shameless homage to the Blancpain Fifty-Fathoms Diver, but since the purpose here is to emulate and even call attention to the original timepiece, there isn't a whole lot of angst against this watch as there are others that have as many or more ties to the watch that inspired their creation.

Im spraying the patio pavers with sealant today so I need a beater. The older model black one on the right was only $8 so that's the choice today. If it gets ruined it will have done its job and I'll never miss it.

Aliexpress. The $8 one is pretty crappy. The newer blue model is surprisingly good for $30.

I posted a review and more details here:
