My understanding is that some percentage of the sale is given to the life guard association but the original webpage is a 404 error so I have to wonder if the whole thing is not a scam to sell items to make a profit under the guise of the 501c charity.

Image

The webpage as it appeared in 2012

And as it appeared before going all 404 on us. A page full of links taking you to spam.

To say nothing of selling a $20 wartche for $275.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

The company selling the watches, Saltzman's, used to be THE Glycine distributor in the US. I had several conversations years ago with Saltzman when I first started to be interested in Glycine Combat subs. The price 5 or 6 years ago was about double what it is now where you can pick on up for under $400.

Good point, but you can say this practically about any hobby.

True story. It comes down to is it worth it to you as the buyer.

You aren’t going to find many watches with that budget. I can see you rocking a neon swatch watch though and your matching neon polo shirt with the collar popped. Hip pouch/fanny pack?

Looks cheap....... as in something from a arcade claw machine cheap.

If they honestly want to further the cause of watches, then they are my brothers. If they are pretentious louts, allow me the first to hammer a Cabriole table leg into their fucking asses. - conjurer

I'm really upset that the Hawaiian Lifeguard Association seeks to prohibit smoking in the ocean; there's nothing more relaxing than puffing on a Pall Mall whilst standing waist deep in a pounding surf, waiting to get one's legs amputated by a fucking shark.

The moon landing is fake. Fake moon landing = alleged moon watch.

Also, Rolex is just a marketing department. A bezel must be fully indexed to be worth a damn. Bronze isn't durable. PADI rules.

Fog, whatever you do, check out the recorded works of Walter Brennan - disturbing, strange, comical, dramatic, just out there. Don't say I didn't warn you. There's one song, "Suppertime" (he narrates, he doesn't sing), that's so fucking weird at the end that I never wanna even hear the name "The Real McCoys" ever again.
