This was my first purchase. Technomarine Cruise Steel Model 110002S. Diver-inspired chronograph with quartz movement. For some reason, when I first said "I need a watch," I loved the idea of having one watch with lots of bands. Then I found WUS and realized how much fun it was to have LOTS of watches instead of one. And the rest is history.

So this one hasn't got much wrist time since I got the original stainless package (Cruise Steel 110002S) in November. The black calf-leather strap is OEM, and has about 3 wears to its name. Retails for $80 at Amazon. The silicon rubber has about 5 wears, and was $30 OEM at Amazon too. The quick release pins are actually darn good. It's a snap (har har har) to swap bands. The rubber doesn't slide in/out, obviously, but that's the only one that will even take a minute.

The SS bracelet has been sized to a 7.5", which is a bit tight on my 7.65" wrist but I never went back to adjust; rather a bit snug than clunking around. And the two extra links will come along. Rubber and Leather bands fit fine, on my wrist, with a few holes left and not too much hangover (is there a word for the extra band that sticks through?) No box though, I didn't realize I needed to save those things when I got it. Sorry!

Sapphire Crystal is flawless. It's actually a bit clearer and easy on the eyes than my Deep Sea T100. Great anti-glare. Chrono functions as expected. Bezel is smooth and secure. As much as TM is a fashion brand and their lower end models get some flack, (even from me, and I've owned 2 TMs now), this is a solid watch. The only reason I'm selling is because it doesn't get any wrist-time (and, ok, to fill in the hole I've made in my wallet since finding WUS). As far as other personal remarks go, I really like the layout of the dial as far as other chrono's I've tried on. It wears---in my humble and rather green opinion---a bit small for a 40mm. It feels significantly smaller relative to my 42mm Oris and very small compared to the 44mm T100. That's certainly why they have an identically spec'd model in a 45mm. So perhaps this particular diver-inspired chrono is the perfect daily-wearer for someone with smaller wrists? Does sit up a bit higher with the SS bracelet but is quite flush with the Rubber and leather bands. Check the gallery link below for all the pics.

Watch sells new on Amazon for $715. Seen it on eBay (watchgrabber) for $535 though with the SS bracelet (no silicon extras, apparently though. I've seen the 45mm version packaged SS+silicon rubber for $625). You can get the same head on the rubber only for $415 (newegg, etc).

Looking to get $400 shipped. OBRO. Sorry, no overseas, CONUS & Canada only. Nichts für ungut!

Could always do a double-deal with my Technomarine Black Ceramic, also up here on sale. :) I have 2 (or 3 now) ratings here on WUS, and can supply eBay credentials if you want more.

Definitely check out the full gallery link if you're interested. I didn't want to make the post too picture heavy but I wanted to supply a pic of the watch with all 3 bands on a wrist. There's a few closeups too, though I managed to get one nice fingerprint on the glass (which I'll clean of course before shipping).
