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.

Okay, so I was wrong... http://thewatchforum.net/forum/index.php ...but I was never so glad to be incorrect... ;)

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:

Enjoy the show! That Joint Strike Fighter is prolly the last manned aircraft we'll ever have in our arsenal...and as a retired military aviator, I'm not real sure just how I feel about that... :|
