  2. Amazon Warehouse deal Pro diver to wear as a beater... and to save my Omega!

    Affordable watches
    I recently purchased a lovely 1995 Seamaster Pro 300m 2561 which I am currently wearing incredibly carefully as it still has a newness to me and I'd like to keep it nice for years to come.

    Well, I never thought I'd review a digital watch. they just aren't the sort of thing I usually look for when I want a watch. However, I needed a cheap reliable beater for when I'm at the gym or doing gardening etc. And so I came across the G-Shock 5600, gorillaz remix edition, which is just a...
  8. sapphire crystal upgrades on affordable watches

    Affordable watches
    When do cheap-o to affordable watches warrant a sapphire crystal upgrade? Would it make more sense to upgrade the crystal on your daily beater, or less? can just about any analog watch be upgraded with Spphr Crstl?

  10. Seiko SKX007 Conundrum

    The Seiko SKX007 was my first automatic watch and served me well as I began my collection.
