Proxima, my new cheapie.

I saw this on ebay for 200. I googled it and there was a post on WIT where RW put up a link for one at 130, so I got it.
It said it had a stainless insert and I was going to tinker with a Dagaz Soxa insert and dial and use this dial in another mod. It does not have a stainless insert, it has a solid bezel, so it blew that plan.
So far my mods have been nothing more than destroying everything I touch, I need cheap watches to continue on my path.

So I need a new plan for this one, I’m not sure what I’m going to do at this point. I guess find a watch for this dial and see how it turns out. I do like the dial, although it isn’t worth 130.

I like the "as-is" look for that one.

It sure doesn't look like a cheapie to me. I like the dial. All it might need is a new strap and call it done.

I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.
