The End Game

The End Game

Postby relaxer7 » December 5th 2017, 6:47am

A long time ago I decided this would be my end game and I've been very lucky to find myself in a position where I've been able to buy it at last.

Too say I'm happy with it is an understatement to say the least! :D

That's some kind of awe. The lume looks excellent.

I like how the 24hr hand lines up exactly. You can tell, even at an angle. Even good brands don't get that right.

Haha Polex – yup, got a free pair of RayBerries too lol

The lume is pretty torch like and lasts hours without any fade – actually lives up to the hype for a change.

Thought about it in black but then had a word with myself and decided Polar was the only way to go on an Explorer II. I also learnt a pretty cool trick too, if you point the hour hand towards the sun whilst keeping the watch flat – the 24hr hand points North (in the Northern hemisphere).

While the journey to any goal is it's own reward, very cool to see a determined pilgrimage achieve it's destination-and what an awesome destination it is! Motivates me to press on with my own.

unless you are bleeding of course! Very nice watch. I love the white dial on it. Word of caution, do not go anywhere near someone with a saucer plate on their wrists. They will grab your wrist, compare watches (saucer to Rolex) and proclaim that their I inflicta is as good as your Rolex and cheaper too! :twisted:
