I think we should all send our dive watches to Carl, so he can send pics of them actually being used!

It has wire style lugs and is worn using a leather watch strap with a pre-v buckle. It is always accurate. I use it to see what time it is. The fuck it ain't a watch!

That's a nice one, foggy! Does it have a battery life indicator?
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

I believe you mean a power reserve complication. And yes, it does

Love me some Fortis. It's a shame they went through the palpitations b of a dying brand, flooding gray market but would love to see them prosper, i like their art projects, very goofy.

After much thought and lurking around the last few days, I've decided that this will be my final post. Fittingly, this Seiko Recraft was one of the very first watches that ever I posted a few years ago. I've enjoyed my time in the forums and I have learned a bunch from all of you, but it's time for me to move on. I wish each and every one of you healthy and happy lives. Thank you.

Cheers!

Artman out.

Alas poor Artman, we knew him well.

We will leave the latch string out for you if you change your mind..

All my best.
